I have been writing stories for as long as I can remember; there is nothing I enjoy more.

    So, everyone's been reading my movella 'Letters to Grandfather'. I realise it doesn't say much about before her grandfather died, so I thought I'd write a prologue. Hope you enjoy it!

    I think you should make it sound more nostalgic. Other than that it's good. :)

    A story I originally wrote for the 'Story of My Life' competition. It's been a while since I've written something like this, so it may not be up to my usual standard. Bit still, I would like to hear...

    This is good. I love the detail and description at the beginning. The action sequence could flow a little better, I think, but that can be sorted out. Well done!

    Right this story is based on image of the pirates cove, it has gone a little over the word limit, but not so much. Around 2,144. Should be enough. Oh and I've made it short, so enjoy the story!

    No problem. I agree with you: the jaguar scene could be done without, I think. It doesn't really add anything to the story and you'd be better off saving words for the fight scene.

    I think this has some potential. However, I agree with tallulahflanjee; the story should be taken slower. Take more time to introduce your characters and what's happening. Keep writing and posting. Sounds good so far.

    What are you sick of seeing in fantasy?

    There are so many clichés in fantasy writing that it's almost laughable; I was wondering what you all think? What clichés have you come across? Pointy-eared elves thatalways turn up to save the day? Tyrants that have no real motivation? Tell me what you think?

    There are some cliches to fantasy you can't take away, like elves having pointed ears, or dwarves being short miners.

    I agree with your point. Some clichés are a key part of fantasy, but how about dwarves that don't mine? Elves that live in grand cities instead of the woods? By breaking the genre and moulding it in your own way, there will be, I think, greater effect on the reader and a better story overall.
