Books / The Wheel of Time - Robert Jordan
« on: October 06, 2018, 12:22:30 pm »
Hi folks!

Have any of you read The Wheel of Time series? A few people I know have started recently which is cool, but I don't have anyone to discuss it with at the mo so thought I'd put it out there on this forum! :)

It is a couple of years ago that I finished it, but it's stuck with me as a brilliant reading experience. Yes there were ups and downs (and I believe around book five it felt a bit like running up a hill haha) BUT worth it!

Hi Hannah!

It been ages since I've been on here, so have just seen your message!

That's awesome that you have something published in Horizons! I have just moved and am yet to buy a bookcase (shocking I know haha!) so will have a look for your story once I unearth my copy from the boxes, whats it called?

I really enjoy writing short stories, I started out writing for theatre and my comfort zone there is 5-10 minute sketches - I enjoy a punchy format :) Biggest challenge I found is writing something that reads as a stand alone story, rather than something that reads as a chapter from something longer - know what I mean?

I have started writing my first full novel about 3 times over the past few years ...and am giving it a go again! 4th times the charm  ;)

Hi folks,

I've recently joined the BFS, just having a little explore of this forum!

I love fantasy & sci-fi books, the best form of escapism I think. I got into the genre from walking around car boot sales with my dad and discovering Terry Pratchett & Anne McCaffrey books (I defy anyone to go to a car boot sale and not see a Pratchett book!)

I am currently reading Eldest from the Inheritance Cycle series with one of my nephews, a good introduction to fantasy for a 14 year old I think! And have just bought Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson which will be my next read - I really enjoyed his wrapping up of the Wheel of Time so figured it would be a good bet to try one of his original series!

I'm always on the lookout for a good book recommendation so will be scouring the forum for such things I'm sure.

I'm writing some short stories at the moment as a precursor to writing a novel. So I am also hoping BFS will be a nice inspiring kick to get typing!

Emma
