I suppose it made me want to write, in fact I do want to write, I want to write books and create stories and share them with people. Talking about stuff is great, but making it, that would be so special to me.

Hey, same here! I'm currently studying for a chemistry degree, but the idea behind that is if I get a stable job I'll be able to write at my leisure on the side (and if my writing sucks, well, at least I won't starve).

Yeh, I want to write, I can't imagine it being good enough for a career, besides there are so many things I want to do. I'm wanting to go to college for business administration, I want to build an empire one day. I'm mostly going to school to prolong my health insurance, I'm practically dying and the doctors seem to not be listening to me well enough, though I have more tests and things to be looked at. Despite my pen here (sometimes) I think my actually writing skill and mastery of English is actually pretty good.

It's just writing a story that is hard. I mean, my current idea is so out there it's very hard for me to translate into a working story.

Heh, I feel ya. I mean, I'm really good at writing papers but I have little to no idea of how to write a novel-length story and keep the whole thing focused and coherent. I get the feeling I'd go meandering off on every little detail that caught my fancy and my book would quickly get confusing.

it's pretty tough, alright, I think i finally understand the importance of rough drafts though. I wrote a few chapters of my first novel and realized I wanted to change and rewrite to fix a lot of things.

It's actually really short, I'll just paste it:

The autumn leaves seemed empty and dreary from amidst this hospital perch. The people walking down below seemed so small. As the wind brushed against my face I could only help but wonder—how many seconds would it be before I felt the cold impact of the pavement?
I looked up to a sky which was so gray and expansive. As a drop of rain touched my lips I couldn’t help but smile. I had prepared myself. I was going to do this. I took a deep breath and brought my hands slowly towards the sky. Yes. This was indeed the perfect day to die.
I took a deep breath and leapt forward. The rush of gravity made my stomach churn. Time seemed to slow down as my vision became a blur. I felt an immense impact and soon I could hear people screaming.
Had I survived the fall?
No. That wasn’t quite right. I quickly turned my head in several directions to realize that I had never hit the ground. Straining my neck I looked upwards. My vision had cleared but what I saw defied all sense of reality.
The sounds of screams were overtaken by a thunderous tremor. The sky was being torn apart by a blinding light. I could see the hospital as it was collapsing upwards towards the stars. People were being thrown into the air like ragdolls. The ground above had been broken apart.
The Earth was collapsing.
I was still falling. Against the weight gravity I reached upwards. The light began to shimmer, brighter and brighter. I couldn’t hear anything. I couldn’t see anything. The light overtook me and suddenly there was silence.

This was the day the world ended….
But it’s also the day everything began.

I like it! A good combination of mystery and action. The one confusing thing is I'm not sure how the protagonist is positioned while all this is happening. Did the light literally yank the ground out of the way so he's just falling into a hole now, or is it pulling him upwards too? You might wanna clarify that a bit, but other than that it's great. Now that you've piqued my interest, mind if I ask what the plot of your story is?

Hm. That is a good point. I supposed I had imagined it like the planet being busted, with the laws of physics breaking down and losing meaning, but I may have to clean that up a bit.

Well, that's hard to put into words.If I had to say, I'd say it like this: It's a fantasy novel, with urban and sci fi elements.See, a cosmic event in the universe tore open a hole in reality, revelaing the source of all existence, "essence" basically the energy that is the purest form of existence, giving shape and form to everything.

Our universe is big, black, and bleak. Full of empty and very little essence, so what happened when that essence came pouring out from the tear in reality, our planet being engulfed by this tear and being pulled into a dimension of pure essence?

Well. If something that has little essence to begin with, is suddenly infused with more existence, it becomes enhanced. It transforms. It becomes something more than it was before. Something incredible.

The idea is that the remnants of our planet and all the creatures and life forms of Earth that were pulled into this original dimension that is basically a sea of existence (essence) was completely transformed by that energy.

The forests are brimming with life and alien like magic, giant wolves roam the lands, monsters, creatures, humans have survived, but many find themselves with strange abilities, a girl who makes fire a man with inhuman strength. Some corrupted by essence, like a Black Knight who has gone insane. On the day of the day of the event our world was taken form the universe, but we gained a new world... an incredible world enhanced by essence.

I guess it's sort of like this, I hope it makes sense. I had the idea to pull even "ideas" from the original world being given existence through essence, like legends of Excalibur etc. the information of which came to life through essence, as I said.

Anyways, er, does this makes sense?

Wow, that's a really good idea! I quite enjoy it. It's got a lot of possibilities to it, as well, because the essence could affect things in all kinds of unique ways. It also raises interesting questions, like can we change earth back? Would we even want to? Stuff like that. Basically, I like it! If you ever need a proofreader/guy to bounce ideas off of, I'd be more than happy to help.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. Yeah actually, I wanted to write more than one in the series. I have so many gems of ideas for it. It's just... matter of writing it... frankly, this story may be beyond my own level of skill, but at the same time I think I'm the only one capable of writing it. So perhaps, by the time, if I ever do, finish this book, my skills will transcend, just like the essence did for existence in the story. It would be so very difficult to accomplish the novel... but if I do... well who knows. I might write a great novel. At least I would hope.

Maybe not a very large fandom, like Dr. Who, because when the fandom gets big, the annoying ones start finding each other and standing out. I like when what I'm reading is well known enough that I can find someone to talk about it with.

Well I don't know, fandom in my eyes is the fans creating a new area of the 'universe' they are a fan of.   
The random things these fans create based off the original story can actually help the author in some cases. Showing the author how fans view certian characters, ideals and plot points in their works.    
I do write and I find my friends provide nice points for me to work off of when it comes to my characters. Miscoceptions can be worked over and made into a better character, story or mood from what your readers, players, or watchers pick up.   
This being said, I don't believe fan 'rage' is right unless is for a reason worth fighting over like Attack On Titan for example, the author is racist and it's a huge debate in the fan base.    
This provides the fan base with real debate, real life issues, that younger fans get into.   
Though moving on, fan fiction, crossovers and such have been made out of my story and unlike some authors I enjoy it! Seeing people who enjoy the story making some new out of your plot is amazing to me. I can see why others don't like it either with how from time to time fans do get the whole point of your story wrong.   
Fandoms are a gathering, of good, okay, and odd fans, each have a connection, the subject of adoration. I love my fan community in each of my favored books, movies, and even bands. It can add to the experience or destroy it and that's for the fan to chose.   
 I'm sorry if I rambled, I don't debate this topic very much.

"fandom" reminds me of a group of teenage girls who obsess and go "OMG" over something that is kinda stupid and not at all deserving of their ceaseless obsession. As a result I avoid "fandoms". Just because I like something doesn't mean I need it to seep into every aspect of my life. It's just a book, movie, game, etc.

Also, I'm digging that profile pic.

You wouldn't call a group of sports fans a fandom. In fact, before maybe 2012 I only ever heard the word "fandom" associated with furries. Then suddenly it was cute to call your clique a fandom if you all liked the same anime or something. And now it's gotten into things that aren't even that relevant when it comes to the connotation behind the word, like calling Harry Potter, Supernatural or Dr. Who fans a fandom.

the way i describe it (and i know this is a personal thing) is that if you like a book/film/tv program you like said thing
if you buy loads of merchandise of said thing or talk about said thing all the time or obsess about said thing
you're in the "fandom"
to use mlp as an example
people who watch the show like to watch the show
people who buy toy ponies dress as ponies or any of that other weird **** are "bronys"
similair for "whovians"
i never liked how there are now so many titles thrown at people simply because they chose to like a thing and i like it even less how some people are actually coming to define themselves with said titles

I might give it a go, I find it hard to get into a lot of books, I much prefer graphic novels I must admit

Like Watchmen, I've been reading Bedlam recently and I can't get enough of it

I don't mind it. This trilogy can get dark rather quickly, too

I saw that series in a bookstore but because shadow was the dominant word in their title I just assumed that it was yet another pre-teenie emo book for faggots to slit their wrists to.

Is it any good?

It's awesome! It can get a bit confusing in the beginning, so if you read it, let me know so I can explain a few things (spoiler-free of course) so you can understand it

You most definitely should. They're the first two books of his most recent (unfinished) Lightbringer series. The basic premise is that certain people can take light and make it into solid "luxin", with each colour having its own characteristics. Only the Prism can manipulate all seven colours and is king by right.

Just to nitpick a bit; the Prism is the only one who can split normal light and use any of the colours, everyone else needs the colour they are using available hence the goggles, but there are rare people who can use all colours other than the Prism, just can't split light.
Not sure how clear I made that but oh well.
