Hello, I’m Yuallica. I drifted here from the NaNoWriMo site, from the thread on the two year novel class, which sounds great.
I write fantasy novels- pretty much always fantasy, apart from one that turned out more adventure. Also usually humourous fantasy, but most of what I like to read has at least a little bit of humour, so that’s not surprising.
I’m definitely a novel writer- tried short stories and (briefly) scripts, and found I definitely prefer novels. Currently I’m pretending not to abandon my 2012 NaNo novel (I’m sure I’ll go back to it at some point :whistle: ) and planning to start a big edit on my 2010 NaNo novel in the next couple of days. I’ve got a couple of other things I’m finishing up, whilst beating back the idea for a new novel that is forming but not quite ready yet. It’s at that stage where I really want to start serious planning and then jump into writing, but I know it’ll be better if I ignore it and let it keep on developing for a bit… I probably would have given in and started it already if it hadn’t turned up on 31st October when I was already all keyed up to write a different novel.December 30, 2012 at 6:43 pm #210521NomoloskParticipant
Yay! Wrimos unite! I’m new, too, and also doing the 2yn class.
Sounds like yours is the kind of fantasy I most enjoy reading. Unfortunately, I can never be funny on purpose, myself. It always happens by accident.December 30, 2012 at 9:02 pm #210531YuallicaParticipant
Ha, yes, I’m not sure that the funny bits in mine aren’t a bit accidental, but I always seem to end up with them so I just say that’s what I’m aiming forDecember 30, 2012 at 11:04 pm #210522J.A. MarlowModerator
Welcome to Forward Motion! I see you already found the 2-Year Novel course, which should be a lot of fun. I’m taking it myself.
Ah, Nano novels. Never know how those will turn out. I’m using the 2-month dares for January and February to finish off the 2012 Nano novel. I think it’s a good story, but it’s nowhere near done.
Let us know if you have any questions. Welcome to the site!

Hello and welcome. I’m glad you found your way here to FM. Congrats on working through NaNo. I tend to write a lot of fantasy myself. It’s fun to see how far you can push things in your world.
Have a look around the site. You might want to check out the two year novel course that Zette is giving. She has a lot of great information to share. Be sure to also stop by the chat rooms because a lot of helpful people hang out there as well.
If you have any questions, please ask.
