'lo. I'm Proximus, also Quinton. Most call me Q. Been working on my story for about one year now, just as a pastime. I have my share of readership from simply my friends, but I figured I might go on here to get some better feedback from people who... At least know half what they're talking about. My only real help has been my friend Victoria, who's the master of making sure that I know when I've done something wrong. heh. I post all of my story on a forum that I run independantly. I'll put up a bit of my work, and then a link to the site, for if you wish to read any more...
My story is about the exploits of the seven various Striders (explained later), but mostly of that of the Darkstrider (L'hain), the great-grandson of the long-dead Lightwalker (Jaren), and the daughter of a nigh-unknown Northern empire. It takes place in the fantasy world of Vannen, which is intentionally made to be about as far as can be from actually existing.
An interesting bit: The story began in an AIM chat. No insult to J.K. Rowling, but it was begun as a testament to prove that I could write a better book than Harry Potter right then, as I simply don't enjoy the Harry Potter series. heh. I think I've done a fair job. Decide for yourselves! =D
I look forward to a long and successful writership with this board!
Howdy, Proximus (or Quinton, or Q--of course, if you let me call you Q, you'll end up enduring a long string of painfully bad James Bond jokes, so you may not want to encourage that line of thinking).
I think you'll find the locals are friendly and accomodating, although you may rile up one or two by saying they "at least half know what they're talking about." I don't particularly care, it's true, but then it's late, I'm tired, and my head hurts.
Actually, I was referring to my friends' commentary. It usually ranges between 2-5 words and consists of "good" or "awesome" or something of the like. You can see how I'd like something more... Yeah, the James Bond jokes came and went. The nickname was sort of acquired by the fact that no one likes to actually say "Quinton" in its entirety. heh.
