Yes, I'm Riibu. I think that requiring commenting on others' works is.. only an ideal. :\ I did suspect some lack of motivation, but it's hardly that bad. Well, we've read all of these poems, obviously, and probably liked them to some degree. But if no one has anything to add, then we can't really ask that either.

Anyway, enough critising! It's negative and we definitely want all kinds of positive thoughts flowing through this thread, affecting people's minds and brains for some creative working... Happy thoughts, everyone! Think happy thoughts!

What do you look for in a scenario? in Blades of Avernum

Hmm. So far my answer is very alone. Perhaps dailogue isn't everything, but I actually hold it linked with plot, they're both important. The plot might be well done and interesting, but if the NPCs don't talk they way they've been described (one scenario which I will not mention, but.. disappointment!) it's not much fun. The dialogue has to be up to par with everything else, or I might just decide not to bother with the whole scenario.

Okay, okay. This is a good start, but it's not enough. I think perhaps, instead of just showing off something little, we need to give more. Because giving is good and so give we must.

Not necessarily your works, although they may be the point. I like reading and writing (they are my obsessions), but why do you do it? Why do you write? What are you motivations or perhaps.. your passions?

Personally, I'm simply enthralled by all the things that could never be real. I love fantasy beyond all other genres. Hell, I'd rather read about living a life rather than live one myself. Right now it's nearly 5am and I am not sleepy one bit. I've just read a bunch of short stories and intend to read a bunch more. This is partially because I'm sort of trying to avoid thinking about a story and partially because I AM thinking about it. It's another personal challenge. I mean to write something I've never had the guts to even consider writing before. Yes. Romancing. >.>

But that's just me. I get obsessed. But it's not all there is. There's also the humorous story about a troll, a mermaid and a centaur and I can barely wait to write another chapter. And at the same time I wish I was (re)writing my last year's NaNo story, or just writing this year's NaNo story (October, November, come faster!). Not to mention all the short stories I've wanted to cleanup and finish for years.

What about you? What are you doing right now? Anything you feel like putting down on paper, so to say? Any topics that feel interesting? Characters, situations, scenes?

I crave more words. Surely you have what I need. Don't you?

EDIT: I can't help but think I must be some kind of ravenous monster who is after your very thoughts. It is pleasing mental image. :)

How about a comment simply to say "Yes, I like it"? I have to admit, I've never really understood poetry. The most I enjoy when the verses rhyme, but other than that I haven't been able to get in to the whole idea. Poetry might be too deep for me. :P

Okay, so I like both of your poems. I do not mind the subjects either; rather they fit into the sort of things I like to read and write. More constructive criticism I can't quite offer. Your poems work and it's my personal view that if it's good enough, it doesn't need to be perfect (as impossible as that is).

Since I don't write poems, but short stories, I won't be posting anything wholly here. Not that my short stories are that long, but I think my posts would be unnecessarily long. Instead I give you a link to one of my most emotional pieces I've written. It's actually a little bit wrong in interpreting those verses, but its point still stands. Written when I was feeling very down.

Kel, I believe people are hoping for more action right now, not a month or so away. Not that there's anything wrong with all that, but we've waited for something interesting long enough.

So, an artsy thread, ongoing and revived whenever occasion calls for it sounds pretty good to me. I would start a thread myself just to get on with it, but uh.. I'm still saving my first General topic for something even more special. I want it to be at right time, in the perfect way.

I second that! But who would be motivated enough to read and comment on others' stories? Drawings always get the biggest attention, of course.. *grumbles*

I think he meant more of Dikiyoba's writings about us and I don't really disagree; they were amusing to read, mostly.

I have been agonizing over the quietness of these boards for a while now. If only I had more to contribute. :\

What is it that we need? Surely we cannot have discussed everything interesting there is. Something new and rousing is required. But what would that be? Suggestions, people! To please others you must give and so give you must!

I tend to get inspired from other stories. They give me new ideas. I don't usually go looking for inspiration, I like it when it just suddenly hits, but *just* now I went for a walk to try and think about this one story. I didn't really have a conflict/problem for it, but the walk worked! I came up with a reason for the heroes to do heroing.

Even though it was either a touch too chilly or too hot and sunny outside. Crazy Finnish early fall weather...

*shamelessly double posting* I'm also shamelessly promoting the second chapter of my TMC story. I actually recommend this. It's quite a bit better than the first one. Or so I like to think. But of course it's always best to read both and in order... *yawn*

Surprisingly late, isn't it? Nearly 5am. ^^

Of course I will be in NaNoWriMo! I already have a story in mind too, and hopefully I can focus on it as well as I did on last year's. And this one will be in English, so... :)

Does reading something you've written yourself count? It does now, I declare so.

As a matter of fact, you should go and see it for yourself.

The first chapter of TMC is finally done and I'm so tired/happy/meh I just have to point it out to someone!

It's only because I love you all so. Fellow Spidwebbers? This is for you. [bows, exits]

Oooh, what a surprise. No, I didn't find him through there. No, uh.. there was this chat page dedicated to RPing that I used to frequent some years ago, it had a fan page, and amongst some links there was a link to his page on mp3.com. I checked the music out and fell in love. Rob is very talented.

I will check out that link. :)

Hair Color: The real or dyed? Normal brown, although it shines pretty golden in direct sunlight / I dye it a more reddish color, which suits me perfectly.
Eye Color: Green.

Do you ...
Have a tattoo? Nope, but I've been thinking about a character who does have one and I'm pretty sure she's going to be me. (a huge dragon that covers most of her back! oooh!)
Have any piercings? Well, earrings... and then there's this. ^^
Have a bf/gf? No, they're useless things!
Like thunderstorms? Lightning is pretty, but the potential for hazards is a bit unfortunate.
Ever stop using the computer? Obviously. Human sleep, zzzz.

Have you/Do you have...
Considered a life of crime? Nah. I just consider life.
Split personalities? Not really. Do characters in stories count? Although they've never been *that* real to me, unlike with someone else...
Obsessions? Hmm. I would have to say, stories. And Grim's Phantasm comic, I've become a complete fangirl for her.

Right now...
Current clothes: Green top and brown skirt (with some minty green flowers). What's beneath, stays beneath.
Current mood: Meh.
Current music: Some Rob Chilcott, fantasy music
Current annoyance: Cramps. Ugh. >.<
Current thing you should be doing: Translating this guide for my father, which I promised to have done at the start of the week. I'm just not that good at translating, it's so annoying to even start. :\

Favorite...

Color: GREEN!
Candy: Chocolate? Toffee? Liquorice? Salmiac?

Spring or Fall? Fall, heavens! I love autum.
Winter or Summer? Winter. Just can't stand all that bloody heat, all the bloody shine... I hate summer.
Vanilla or Chocolate? Chocolate. Vanilla with cocoa so it's almost like chocolate.
Lights on or Off? Off, most of the time.

Is vanilla style? I had a dream sometime ago where I posted a topic in General which said: 'Vanilla. I like vanilla.' and then I got banned for 3 months because of that. It was kind of an annoying dream. I mean, come on, three months for vanilla? Talk about unfair.

The banned forum did have some lousy quests to do meanwhile, but apparently they were all boring and I didn't bother to finish them. Couldn't even switch to my #1000 account, because the main page would just throw me onto some fake Desperance site (it was much too pretty and polite to be the real thing).

Okay, so I just wanted to tell that finally, and it sort of can fit. If you squint and look at it from the side. ^^

You know, I still haven't gotten that book I've been waiting for. :( And I'm pretty sure someone's screwing around with it, because when I last checked it I was first in line to get it, and it said it had arrived, but a few days later it said it was loaned out again. But not by me. :\ Someone jumped over me, the bastard.

And now I have to wait more weeks. It's not like it's already been two months for me... *grumbles*
