Well...we did chop down one tree. you know, Circle of Life and such.

And then there was the time that we almost burned down our own grove.

That one was not really planned.

I like writing. I've gotten opportunities to exercise my love of writing in a lot of ways, in recent years, but my dream is to write novels for a living. It's a lofty goal, I know, but I don't think I'd be satisfied with anything else.

I've got a ~90,000 word novel centered on a young Acanthus that I need to spend a lot more time editing, but the mood to edit comes along only so often. Much more frequent is the mood to write; lately, I've been working on something centered on Garagnavagh.

If anyone's interested in reading something, here's a link to a Google doc for the Garagnovel I'll try to keep updated as I work on it.

Garagnovel Parts 1-50

Garagnovel Parts 51+

This is the Discord I have for the Gnovel. If you're enjoying the book, planning on reading it, or have any interest at all, feel free to join!

Garagnovel Discord

Apologies if you find the parts to be short. There's a reason I didn't call them chapters.

Up so far:
Parts 1-63



[ Edited 04:43:07 PM 09/08/18 ]

Acanthus Aranneus Garanthes- Wizard; Celestial Knight of Hope
Garagnavagh- Voracious Gnoll Chieftain
Lucille Sefton- Wandering Soul

Garagnavagh -- Funniest Character 2018; tied for Best Character 2018 with Ralzok Snagason.

Thain is what you make of it; No one will do anything for you. It's a video game, where we kill dragons in neverneverland. You can do whatever you want, and if anything, there will be droves of people to move in and support your idea. --Cannonfodder

That is awesome! Don't give up on your dreams of writing. Someone has to do it right? Why not you? I look forward to giving this a read. Work is suppose to slow down in a couple of weeks so Ill have some more free time for gaming, netflix, and reading. AND maybe even lying to myself about going to the gym.

I've had a few people tell me they're enjoying Garagnavagh's book, so I'm gonna take this opportunity to thank everyone who's been reading or interested at all! Thank you!

That's great.

I've been writing too, since I played on Thain before. I won't appropriate your thread I'll post about it elsewhere - but the quality of some of the writing on this site inspired me.

This Garagnavagh stuff is really good, totally what I mean. Thank you.
