i guess i should probably do this at some point. i joined this community a few days ago, and am really looking forward to being a part of it. i'm not sure that i'll have all that much to contribute to begin with, as i am just beginning my journey. i've always considered myself an atheist or an agnostic. my husband is a buddhist, and i've done a lot of reading and research on various relions and spiritual beliefs, only to find that none of them "fit" me. however, this is different...from the moment that i stepped into this realm (pagan & wiccan), i've felt at "home". i'm still very much a beginner, and i'm still trying to find my specific path, but i do feel that i am finally pointed towards the direction of the paths that are meant for me. and it feels good - really good.

anyway, my name is kym, but for all intents and purposes, please refer to me as "datura". i'm 32, married, have a 13 year old son and 8 indoor cats. we recently just moved back to northwest ohio from michigan to care for my elderly parents. currently, i am just beginning to study the very basics. i've picked up several books, visited a spiritual "variety" store not too far from here (where i've collected quite a few items to aid in my study), and i've also signed up online with magicka shool, tarot college, witch school, and the pagan college. i'm not certain as to the quality of any of these, but i figure they will at least give me a general base from which to start.

i guess that's it for now. i just wanted to say hello and to introduce myself. i'm sorry if you see this cross-posted to some different communities - i've joined a lot as of late, and i'm not feeling up to writing a seperate intro for each one.

i'm really looking forward to being in this community, learning from all of you, and hopefully making some new friends that take me seriously throughout this learning process. if you have any questions for me, ask away - i'm pretty much an open book.

i hope this finds everyone well.

If you could read the short intro behind the cut below, and tell me:
1. Do you sense info-dump?
2. Are you at ALL drawn in - and how could it be more arresting?
3. Does it flow? Or does it show signs of over-editing?
4. WHAT can I do to make this a better opening?

Most importantly...
5. Would you read more? ;) (honestly!!)

Thank you!

Hi Everyone.

I'm RAD (my initials). I'm a fourteen-year-old, so I'm probably younger and less experienced then most of you all. I AM a fantasy-fiction writter though. a summary of the novel I hope to publish one day is on my journal. I have four chapters of it but I've recently decided to redo the entire series so as soon as I finish the new first chapter I'll post it up here for you guys.

Please, if you have the time, look at my journal and leave a comment telling me if you like the summary of my book and if it sounds interesting. I'm desperate for feed-back and anything would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Subject:~Book Lists~


I am in a bookish mood, and so I present the following:

I have created a page for the most favourite of my vintage tomes, and here is where they dwell: ~Vintage Books~. I do so love them! Not any that are *especially* old or of value, but I love them nonetheless :o). Wondrous to meet you all!

Simply because I feel like it, these are all the things I am re/reading~

~Complete Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde
~Triumph of the Moon: History of Modern Pagan Witchcraft
~Bulfinch's Mythology
~A Little Princess by Frances Hodgsen Burnett
~Emiliy's Quest by LM Montgomery
~Various poetry: Moore, Keats, Swinburne, Hafiz, Anacreon, etc.
~The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
~Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice
~The Decameron by Boccaccio
~The Metamorphoses of Ovid
~A History of Pagan Europe
~Possesion: A Romance
~The Alphabet Versus the Goddess, The Conflict of Word and Image by Leonard Schlain

And yes...I am currently reading *all* those :o). What are you all reading? Do share your current lists with me!

Subject:Intro and The Blue Ones


I haven't yet introduced myself :o). I am Vivianne, 20 years old, living in New England. My interests are far too numerous to list, but include reading, books, gaming, writing, fantasy, farming, singing, theatre, drawing, learning, history, physics, and nearly infinitely more :o). I thought I would start with a story that I wrote this summer, based somewhat on an experience that I had. Most of my writings will be a little more descriptive and archaically~themed, but this one is short :o)...criticism and suggestions welcome!

Subject:*pokes her nose in*
Mood: chipper

Hi all. I'm new to the community, so... Here's my introduction. ^_^ Something no one else did... So maybe I'm insane or something, but... I do love the fantasy, and writing in general, and while I'm not exactly the world's GREATEST author... I do have my own little corner of fictionpress.net staked out, and I'd love input on stuff, when I get around to pasting new-ness here. ^_^ Gonna do the same for everyone else, so this'll be fun.
