    I enjoy Crossology.

    The Fear Act, should put that in the "What Are You Afraid Of" thread, ha.

    This.
    I don't think I've ever completed anything that I've posted up on this forum.

    Nice site though Seth.
    EDIT:
    Just wondering, did you get these books finished/published? From the ideas it sounds pretty interesting but there's nothing to read from D:

    Nothing there is published except for one of the poems, Nightmare.

    Corruption had a first draft manuscript finished, once upon a time... But I need to completely re-write it because I created so many plot holes and the dialogue was horrible, in my opinion. That and I lost touch of my timeline and the story took place over the course of like... 2 months when it should have been a couple of weeks or so.

    That and as a series, I've overhauled so much of that, it's not even funny. I mean, I created entirely new characters and events across all five of the Stinda Saga books, it's incredible how much I DIDN'T originally think it out.

    I think you should take 15 years to live your life before publishing. But I think you should keep writing, of course. Whatever happened to that blog?

    Oh, I'm going to be doing more than that. At the very least, I plan on doing around 20 years in the military. I'll secure a pension for that much effort and then whether I succeed or fail at writing... Me and my family will be taken care of.

    Keep in mind if anyone is curious about anything with the writing or the poems to ask. I'm hoping releasing my writing "notebook" will secure us some new activity...

    That much literature... One can only hope.

    :)

    I like you a lot, Seth. Best of luck in everything. Contact me when you begin your writing career. I might be in the position to help you someday.

    It's really not that impressive when you remember I started when I was 16, as far as Poetry. 6 years of poetry writing means about 20 every year [less, really] meaning fewer than 2 or 3 a month... Not that much. If I had 1000 poems, then I'd expect people to be impressed but that's a number I don't think I'll ever reach in my lifetime. I just don't believe I have that much poetry left in me.

    As far as writing, Corruption started when I was 13 and took me until I was 18 to finish the manuscript that I hate, but most of it was done between 16-18... Like chapters 6-18.

    Kranin on the other hand really only started around when I was 15/16 and has been re-written so many times it's sad. I keep writing it down and then losing it or getting new ideas and having to change so much that I practically re-write the whole thing.

    I have a recent version written down that I really need to type up soon before I lose it.

    I use Tumblr now and it connects to my Facebook, actually.

    Forgot I never mentioned that.

    Oh, I never really cared much for Tumblr, but then again, I used it when it was still a little fledging. Hey, congrats on the baby. And also, if you're interested, I have a new blog.

    You should make a thread for it :)

    And thank you on the congratz.

    Tumblr isn't a bad idea... They really need to add servers though because they're constantly having issues and I think a lot of them is how unprepared for activity they are.

    Overall, I like the idea that it connects to my Facebook. It gets more exposure and I know more people have a chance to read it because they're not searching through obscurity to find it; it shows up on their news feeds.

    Actually, I just blogged about my son last night/this morning :)

    I've made so many threads already... Plus, I don't feel like sharing my blog with a bunch of strangers. This new blog is personal, where I just post wherever pops inside my head the moment I get home from school. I haven't shared it with anyone else...

    Do you have Goodreads.com? If not, you should. I have no friends on it. :p

    Unfortunately I'm centralizing everything I do. Hence the point of the ZetaBoards for ALL of my writing and only one thread here to display it.

    Speaking thus of Crossology; I will be making a new thread in the "Bookcase" forum for a little children story for my son about a Monkey King XD

    His nickname is "Silly Monkey" because his mother bought him all monkey-themed stuff.

    Ha, you should try making it a picture book as well... or maybe you shouldn't (thinking back to Goth High). :p

    Do you still have those comics anywhere?

    I have the hard copies but the hard copies are black and white without any colors, shading or words

    If I still had the color copies from online, I would actually add them to Crossology as a little archive. Maybe I'll even make a spot for my sketches there and just throw all of my work together.

    Your comment about "maybe not, thinking back to GH", I'm assuming you didn't like the art in the comic? Feel free to be honest.

    By the by, sooner rather than later, I have to start typing up the newest version of the Huramdrin (her-rah-drin) which is the recording of Kranin's history from the time of the Entity all the way up to now.
