Hello everyone!

My name is Ben! I recently rejoined the Terry Goodkind forum after a VERY lengthy absence and was almost immediately gently prodded in the direction of the WBG, so here I am Smile

I am looking forward to reading what you have to offer and hopefully contributing a little myself (though processes allowing of course)

Well, I just got called into work early.

Thoughts thus far after the first few paragraphs.

Excellent work. You have introduced some of the (main?) characters, history and some hints at future plots I believe. I am really enjoying the flashback to her youth.

You have definitely drawn me in and make me want to read more. Hopefully I will have some time to do so tonight!

If by "gently prodded" you mean hogtied and tossed into the ring with the rest of us by DuDZie...

THEN I'd believe you.


WELCOME ABOARD!

I suppose that is a good definition of "gently prodded" rainshadow!


I hope you enjoy my entry for the June edition of the writing comp, and will soon find a copy of my entry for the quarterly competition too

I'm loving the site. It's given me a much need proverbial kick up the butt in terms of writing!

Cheers!

It's good to hear other people are entering the quarterly one too! Seems like too good an opportunity to gauge reception of a short story attempt to miss really.
