I’m not new to Gaia, for I’ve played across its pages under many different aliases, hoping to hone my ability as a writer. For nearly three years now I’ve been working on the backdrop of my world, Aramai, in which my story will take place. For simply I’m working on a novel, or several novels. I’ve weaved its history, created its cultures, all in hopes of creating a more realistic world. And yet something…unique. And while much of my world is simply an exploration of things already done, there are some things that I hope will intrigue a new audience. It’s only within the last month that I’ve actually began writing the novel itself, and I’m now upon my one hundredth page. In the light of this new stepping stone, I’ve decided its time to start over new on Gaia (from which I’ve restrained myself from being on for quite some time) and hope to find myself a publisher (though all things must come in time). I hope to use Gaia as a way to reveal pieces of my book, little secrets that not even the reader would discover until books later, to those I trust on here. Those I accept as friends can read my journal, which will hold personal notes and informational pieces on many of the mysteries of Aramai and the story behind the Old Sword. And yet every once in a while I’ll create a forum on here, whether through the guise of a roleplay or through a straight forward piece in the Writer’s Corner, that will reveal part of my book directly. I love criticism as long as it’s constructive and not just badgering and I hope to use this site for such a thing.
