Whoah, lots to read. Shall have to go through that. *smiles and waves* Hi! Found you because you went to Ray's page. Any recommendations?

Welcome, Liari. Most of the stuff is reasonably good, but I take the most pride in the "Arthallin Majeste" series, "In The Grasp Of Death", "Ego", and "What Once Was Lost". Hope you enjoy some of the writings.
On a different note, I'm a little bit irritated about the whole extranet thing right now. A few days ago, I wrote up a little piece specifically to update my elfwood page (since I'd neglected it for so long). I submitted it with a number of page changes (notably edits in the bio).
The story was rejected. Two reasons were quoted. The first asked me to translate a word which I'd written in a fictional language. Okay, fine. The second reason, however, was this: "There is no apparant sci-fi/fantasy content within your story." I found that to be rather off-base. Perhaps the tale lacked overt fantasy content, but it certainly was set in a fantasy setting.
I'm not sure who at Elfwood to contact about that, but it's pretty discouraging. I'm reluctant to change the translation and re-submit it into the queue only to have it rejected once more for a lack of fantasy content. If anyone wants to read the story, just send me an e-mail.
Jay, the frustrated artist.

Had a chat with the moderators a little while ago which cleared up the above. By Elfwood's definition, fantasy is not constituted with mere swords and medievalish times, so my story needed something else. I suppose I'll continue the story (since magic's involved at some point) and then re-upload it.
Just letting folks know I'm still around. I've been doing some work with film lately, most notably the short film "Packing Slips". Check it out here: http://www.technomonkeymedia.com/movies/

Wow, I have to say I'm impressed that your account hasn't been deleted yet...
So how's it been going? Feel like an old veteran? I do, because I've been on elfwood longer than four years now. You? Even longer....

Longer indeed. I fear I've not been writing lately, at least not in any serious fashion. Lack of time and inspiration are contributing factors both. Work sees to the former, whereas my inspiration is usually thrown into D&D at this point. Dungeons and Dragons has become my creative outlet.
On the off chance I actually put something together, I'll post it up here.

I feel I should post a message while passing through. I’m currently preparing for 4th Edition of Dungeons and Dragons, where I will be designing a world for our group’s adventures. If I do any associated writing, I’ll post it up here.

Hello. I found your house on elftown (I’m sequeena_rae on there) and followed your link here. Your writing is wonderful! Would you consider coming back to us?

Elfwood’s been good to me. I’d love to come back. Alas, I’ve not been writing lately...

I started writing again recently after years of, well, not. And hey, I still enjoy reading your stories so u better not delete this!

Won’t delete it, rest assured. Lately, D&D has been my creative outlet, rather than written fiction. I’ve had some good campaigns, and a few less than good... it all averages out in the end.
I’ve also been working on my photography. Webpage can be found here: http://www.jasonromein.ca
It’s perhaps a telling sign of my general neglect of web updates that my last news post on my website was January 2010. Lol...
