"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed." — Ernest Hemingway
It's about writing--click on the memories for the links to different fandoms. Right now I am largely, but not entirely, obsessed with Tolkien Silmarillion-based fanfiction. Also write Mary Renault, Wraeththu, BBC Merlin, and Swordspoint fanfiction, Harry Potter, ASOIAF, etc.
My first home on the internet outside of this LJ is the Silmarillion Writers Guild.
Character of the Month Biographies at the Silmarillion Writers Guild - One of the things which keeps me busy and makes me happy is the opportunity to write a character biography almost every month for the SWG. The link above will take you to all of the biographies collected on the site thus far, written by me and others. These are more than one’s standard quickie bio found online in most similar discussions of Tolkien’s characters. They are detailed and contain citations and commentary.
