I love reading. A couple of years ago I decided I want to write too. At first, I wanted to write for myself, a story I like and does not end if I want to read more. But later I decided that I would like to make some money with my writing too.

I enjoy reading all kinds of books, but have a tendency to read more fantasy and romance.

I work now on a fantasy book. I want it to be a series.

I did not start to write my first draft yet. Still work on notes. Characters, places, structure, backstory... I am a planner.

Other than that, I am from Republic of Moldova. Married. Three children and the youngest one with some development problems.


Hi Rob,

I love these covers! Much much better. 🙂

Hi Lesley! Nice to meet you. I am a new writer too. Working on my first draft. 🙂 On schedule too after too much research. 😁

Thank you! I will definitely read them.

I work on my first draft at present. It is a fantasy book. But I will publish for sure. At that time I will proudly shout about it in TH. 😁

😁 It might happen that in time you will have some favorites.

For me is such a pleasure to see people published! 😀 It gives me hope.

Do you have other published works? Where can I find them?

Thank you Carol! 😁 I really needed to hear it. 😁

Hi. I'm a sort of hybrid planner and pantser myself. I use a rough diagram with lots of notes scribbled on it to plot the inciting incident, climax and end with the most important events jotted in at appropriate points. Then I try to put myself into the characters' minds and start writing. I find that by trying to understand them as thoroughly as possible, I know how they'll react in the scenes I create for them. 

If I have an idea for a scene, I just go ahead and write it, even if I discard it later. After all, no-one but me will see it. 

So, I guess I'm saying don't spend too much time planning and overthinking your work. Get writing.  If nothing else, it's good practice of your craft.

For me, they do not stand out. I feel there is need for more color or contrasts.
