Hey everyone, just joined this site so lets talk about me, its my blog right? Right! So I write on and off, sometimes I get the bug and ideas just pop into my head at night. Its always at night, I donit know why it just is. Whenever that light is off and I'm staring into the darkness ideas will just run me over. Its always about this book I have written bits and pieces of over time. I have always had the talent for reading so writing is just natural. Even in elementary school I was reading the Harry potter books without much trouble. I loved reading fiction. I loved going places and worlds that didn;t exist, yet somehow could be so absolutely clear in my mind. I'm pretty sure I read every single goosebumps book written when I was a kid. Way back then, I actually used to get into trouble for reading during class on a regular basis. Every time I went to a new school or started a new year sooner or later I would gravitate to the library. I would always go to the same section and find two new books and return the ones I had gotten yesterday, I was already done with them. I was never really interested in school or meeting new friends, I already had a best friend that I had met when I was five. Yea, five, and we are still best friends to this day. I bet we are closer than brothers, and its weird, we have never needed to test our friendship, it just is. Nothings changed, we have differences sure, but we accept who we are, appreciate each others strengths and faults, and just maybe find something to make our own. I'm the guy who enjoys his solitude though, when the world closed its grip on me and there was no light at the end of the tunnel, it was my imagination that saved me. The books of R.A. Salvatore were so much more real than so many things. I cared about reading those books more than I did half the students at my school. He made me want to tell the story of my own character, my own story and my own epic deeds and tragedy that were born of my imagination. So every so often, I would pick up a pencil and write about it. Its a work in progress, a fiction novel set in the world of DnD. Yes dungeons and dragons, no its not devil worship of anything of that nature, its an endless limitless RPG. If you don't have a clue what I'm talking about here, please check out R.A. Salvatore's work. I suggest you start with the Dark elf trilogy to start in chronological order. Its amazing. It truly is, the man is a genius, there's no doubt about it. From the very first page, I was hooked. I really have to thank my dad for that, introducing me to a world of fantasy and epic quests with such a degree of realism that the book seemed like a movie, only better. I was so enthralled that I had read EVERY single one of his books in record time. That's 20+ and each one was pretty big. So the story of Revan is what I want to tell, inspired by the stories of R.A. Salvatore, the DnD sessions that defined the character and who he was, and my own imagination.

Hello Starscream
Why yes it is! Hello there :)

( Posted by: HavocTheDemon [Member] On: October 7, 2009 )

Everyone come say hi to Havoc!!!
You can call me Dave, everyone here knows my name dude. I'm so glad you decided to join me here man. I'm looking forward to seeing your work and hopefully you'll take a look at mine and tell me what you think. I'm telling you, you couldn't buy a better place to learn and grow as a writer. I've improved by leaps and bounds here.

I'll be back on xbox in about a month, so I hope you've cleaned your scope, because soon enough old StarScream's head is bound to be in the cross hairs.

Allow me to be the first to welcome you to litdotorg!

Keep Scribbling
Dave

Rodney and I met through a friend of mine from my last unit. Mark (My army buddy from texas) Rodney and I play Halo together on Xbox Live and we are myspace friends too. We've been friends for almost two years now. I'm assuming he found this site through my myspace page. I have a banner there that is a link to litdotorg. Anyways, rodney is a very thoughtfull and talented writer from what I've seen of his myspace blog. So I'm really glad he's here. I think he'll fit right in. ;)

@ Rodney
In that case, if you are a close personal friend of Hero, then you are more than welcome here! Hero is working hard to improve his craft! Very hard. I'm happy to say that all of our writers here have taken him under our wing, and we're nurturing his raw talent into something wonderful!

If you've kept up with his work, I'm sure you'll agree each installment is a bit better than the next!

Since you are in the military, as is Hero, I'd like to encourage you to make full use of the blogging function here at litdotorg. Blogging is a wonderful way to work on one's writing skills, because the more you write, the easier it is to write. It's done wonders for Hero; and, I'm sure it will do wonders for you as well.

PLUS -- all this war stuff both frightens and fascinates me. I'm sure it is that way for you, too. By sharing all this with us, we can support you emotionally in what must be a very trying and dangerous way of life. So reach out to us with your words. Let us know what things are life. Let us, here at litdotorg, give you a safe place to work out your feelings and find love and acceptance from your writing peers.

I am a firm believer that writing is the best therapy there is.

And . . . thanks for all you do. While we're here enjoying the freedoms we have, YOU are out there fighting to make sure we maintain them. No matter how anyone feels about the war, selfless self-sacrifice for a greater cause and one's beliefs is a powerful thing. It takes a man with a lot of heart and a lot of courage to do what you men do, and I love you all for it! Truly, I do.

Thx guys
Well David, its just weird to call you that. Your just starsceam to me. Well moore is fine too. Ive already been posting and have two more being validated. Now that im concentrating on it a little bit its a little weird I dont know what to write lol.

Oh and at ochani Im not actually in the army yet, Im in the process of joining and its not as easy as you would think. Family and personal problems seem to get in the way constantly. And then theres the girl, sigh you all know how that goes. Mark is actually the brother of my best friend, known them both for god 10+ years so we grew up together. I wish you all luck on everything you do and thank you for the encouragement!

Welcome to Lit.Org, Demon!
Havoc, as I said on another post, I just got back from surgery so I am still a little loopy with this laptop in bed (I am supposed to be resting, HA!) but I just had to say WELCOME, any friend of HeroComplex (a most interesting sentient being) is a friend of mine;-)

Thx alot! Man why does it take forever to post something new. I already have 3 things waiting and im so excited I want people to read them lol.

( Posted by: HavocTheDemon [Member] On: October 7, 2009 )

Time for EVERYONE to read...
You see, Demon, if you put everything up at once then fewer people are likely to read it, since we have so many categories each day to choose from...those regular and not so regular readers have time to digest all categories this way and get to read your work, but some sites it's all put out there at once and no one ever really reads it, they may glance but not always read due to too much overload...

Here we give each author a chance to have each post up a full 24 hours/one per author/per category every day. You actually get better real reading of your work results that way.

Each day by (or before)4pm a new validation occurs, and what next in line piece of work you have in your works will show up.

Been doing it like this for over ten years, seems to work out well and better than most;-)

Keep on...developing a quality group of loyal readers takes a little time, but it's worth it.

Thanks for the advice, I'll try to keep that in mind. I just hate writing and it taking so long to be posted. Im not really looking for a fan club of avid readers, I just want to write. Even if only one person reads it, Im ok with that because well I get my joy out of writing and reading my own work, not for some sense of glory people will give me. The timeframe thing was really what I wanted to know, thanks again :)

( Posted by: HavocTheDemon [Member] On: October 7, 2009 )

The Joy of Writing & Feedback...
Well,not so much for glory, many writers aren't interested in glory, but they do love feedback...and so the time frame also allows people time to read, and hopefully critique your work, most writers want critique, not all, but most interested in improving their work.

So, great you love to write, most writers do;-) Glad you are writing here, and I hope you can share some critique on other writers work like your friend HeroComplex has done. That is what makes for grest writer support and community.

Again, welcome, and I look forward to reading more of your work;-)

@Rodney
I'm excited to see what you've got too. I'll check this afternoon and comment on what I find. If you get a moment, go to my profile, you'll see the link for my blog. Give a read, you might find it interesting. Also, be sure to go and read the "Majestic." Its our monthly newsletter. All sorts of interesting stuff in there. (And Karma did an interview of me!) Also, if you go to my myspace page you'll see the litdotorg page in my top friends. You should add it. Just drop Ochani a comment and let him know so he can accept you. If you have facebook, Karma runs that site.

On a personal note, How's Tori doing? Tell her I said what's up and I'm looking foward to gaming with you guys again. (Oh yes, StarScream will return. bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha)
