Don't let the lunacy get to you, we are a nice bunch of lunatics.

 

Kitt, you neglected to mention we have some nice padded cells for when the lunacy becomes too much :lol:

Hi, I'm Voleuse.

I enjoy reading (and writing) gay fiction so I ended up here. I'm kind of drowning in the mass of stories though, there are so many (and I'm picky! :P). Anyway, on with the introductions. I live in the Netherlands, together with my boyfriend and my two cats. Errm, that's all I got!

Hello!

 

I used to read some of the stories on this site a while ago.  Recently I've gotten a little more involved in my writing, and remembered this site while wishing I had some feedback.  If a website can be 'approachable', this one is, though I still feel weird introducing myself to people who can't see me.  Anyway, you can call me Con, and I'm a huge nerd when it comes to...pretty much anything.  I like my fiction with a healthy dose of 'non':  the more technical minutiae that can be worked into a storyline organically, the better.

Hello, all~.

 

I don't know why it took me so long to find this place, but I am happy to be here now. :) I've been reading and writing gay fiction (mostly romance) for years, and have my first novella coming out soon. I'm always looking to connect with fun likeminded people, and to get honest feedback on my work and enjoy the work of others. I can't wait to get started! :]

I see that I did miss the welcome of Voleuse and Con. I've seen your avatars around. Glad you could join us. 

 

Ricky, I hope you aren't slipping at the ripe old age of 54. :rolleyes:  Remember that little friend request you made?  :)

I've been told that I'm awful at these so I'll keep this short. 

 

I've been re-pursuing writing for a while now and I recently worked out that I'm gay. So I figured because I felt a bit isolated by the whole thing (I know one other writer and it's my reflection in the mirror) it would help if I started hanging around with people who were a bit like me. So I Googled around and came across this place. 

 

That's it really.

That wasn't so hard, was it? Glad you found the place. Welcome aboard, Gee.

Welcome Gee! I hope you find a home here and perhaps a few good neighbors. You "deserve" to be happy. You may have to work for a bit to get that way though.

So Enjoy and get gay! You've got family here now.

Hello everyone and I'm happy to be a member of this site.

my name is Gypseytails and I *LOVE* reading books :read: and trying my best (and failing) writing stories of my own.

 

This site was major part of my bisexual teen years and if I didn't found this site, I think I wouldn't know as much.

 

:worship:

      Hey everyone, my name is Noah from Texas and I love to write and paint using as much of a variety of mediums as I can get my hands on.  I'm pretty new to this kinda group and I'm excited and lovin it so far. I have a tons load of journals I've written some short but tons hot stories and some chapters long. I love adding a lil if my experiences with my huge fathomless imagination. There is nothing shocking in what our beautiful minds can create or imagine.  Love the hugeness that is this hive if openness.  I do have a few curiosities about things I can write for the windows to the vast mind.  What is allowed plain for all to use and expand on and what is considered by the narrow, dingy blinders as vulgar, uncouth or tactless. Perhaps someone that has been overstimulated by all the richness here, as I feel right this moment, can sternly point the way to some restraining guidelines to yawn and detest; knowing full well that I MUST ABIDE TO HELP the silenced, muted emotionally and fiercly animated majority.  I LOVE entirely too much, my sleeve a bloody smear that resembled a pretty perfectly, beautiful heart once upon a time; however it never deters me from lovin like I've never loved before. Everything we were taught is ONLY a fantastical, heavenly lie or a brash, unapologetic hell. For me the wrongfully righteous do NOT exist. Merely a PROPAGANDA imagined by man to entice his brother to gravely sabotage himself; So that a fortissimo cacophony of guilt and pain is heard from the most soto voce of nothing. I'm looking forward to learning and opening my heart, if possible, to more of what is all the universe that is our minds. 65,000 thanks from the one in the gutter, but I'm looking at all the stars. Evermore yours,
      Noah.

      On behalf of the Editing Team, I'd like to introduce, and welcome our newest Beta Reader
       
      Bachgen Cymraeg
       
       
      I'm sure Bach will make a valuable contribution to the Beta team. He is all set and ready to take on new authors. He fully understands that Beta Readers are paramount to spotting logic, plot problems and consistency of character traits among other things and that a Beta Reader is a ‘second’ reader to go over the story to see how it flows; kind of like a test pilot for the story for the author to gain feedback before publishing.
       
      When asked what comes first, plot or character his opinion was that the plot takes precedence, since that is what keeps the story going and the reader interested. He is also of the opinion that a good plot is nothing without properly developed characters; who wants to read an amazing plot with the most boring characters imaginable? So one could start with an amazing character and build a plot around them. I guess it depends on the author’s initial thoughts and ideas about the story. I don’t think it’s necessary that either should come first but merely that they are developed properly.
       
       
      Welcome to the team, Bach.
      Happy Beta Reading.

      On behalf of the Editing Team, I'd like to introduce, and welcome our newest editor / beta reader
       
      Kev de Cauchery.
       
      I'm sure Kev will make a valuable contribution to the GA Editing/Beta team. He is all set and ready to take on new authors. His favourite genres are romance and drama. He doesn't mind editing / beta reading 2nd drafts. He fully understands that Beta Readers are paramount to spotting logic, plot problems and consistency of character traits among other things.
       
      When asked what comes first, plot or character  his opinion was that there is no hierarchy there, but characters are the ones who push the plot, and the plot should be aligned with character traits.
       
      Welcome to the team, Kev.
      Happy editing / beta reading.
      But, mostly, happy writing.

      On behalf of the Editing Team, I'd like to introduce, and welcome our newest editor
      Roland Q.
       
      I'm sure Roland will make a valuable contribution to the GA Editing/Beta team.  He is all set and ready to take on new authors. Roland is a writer too, so he understands that when a writer puts pen to paper and becomes engrossed in the writing process, grammar and other writing principles can be overlooked because the writer is so close to his body of work.  His favourite genre's include: Romance, mystery and fantasy stories.  He doesn't mind editing 1st or 2nd drafts.
       
      When asked what comes first, plot or character (much like the chicken or the egg), his opinion was that plot and character are difficult to separate.  The action, flow,  and mechanics of the foward movement of plot, must make sense for the character because any divergence from plot might add another dimension.  In essence, he knows that plot and character must work together.
       
      Welcome to the team, Roland.  Happy editing.  But, mostly, happy writing.
