Here is the first page I have written. I'm just starting to experiment with characters and the environment. I'd love to hear peoples' reaction. view post

I think it is a decent opening to a novel. Might even be good as the first chapter following a prologue that has some action in it and fills in some of the backstory (i.e. the usual formula you see in fantasy books). Two things that didn't seem to fit were the use of the word 'wetlanders' which seems sort of ripped off from a Wheel of Time book and the desert being described as stretching for miles and having never been crossed by these wetlanders. It doesn't sound daunting enough. Perhaps "hundreds of miles of barren desert" or something more descriptive like that. But good stuff. I know how hard it is to put to paper what you create in your mind. That is why I don't do it :P view post

Thanks. Yes, Wil had the same wetlander comment, which I TOTALLY agree with. I think it just sort of slipped in subconcsiously, I didn't realize at the time that it was used in WoT. view post
