    First out of many

    Post by Maris on Wed Aug 03, 2011 6:51 pm

    I'm Maris. I'm 16 and I live in Croatia which is a small European country.
    I've been writing for as long as I can remember. I usually write in English, even though it's my second language. I'm currently working on a lot of different things, from short stories to ideas that will hopefully become novels at some point. I actually wrote a novel a few years ago but it's terrible. I'm an obsessive perfectionist so I often get myself into writer's block. I procrastinate. I also write fanfiction because it's fun, I get feedback and I get to learn a lot about writing. Another thing you should know about me is that I am a Harry Potter fan. No, that doesn't begin to cover it. Razz
    There you go. Enough for now, I suppose.
    I hope we get more members soon and get this thing going. Smile

    Hi Maris,
    Even though I'm a newer member than you, I thought I'd say hi Very Happy

    OMG, please don't remind me of my first novel. That was HORRENDOUS XD I think that's normal for a first novel, but I thought it was really bad so I kind of left it.

    You're a Harry Potter fan too? Yay! Very Happy I love Harry Potter, but I think my favourite character is Hermione Granger. I'm the 'geek' at school to Smile

    Yay, another Potterhead Very Happy Sirius is the one who drew me to the books in the first place so if I had to choose, I'd probably say that he's my favorite character. But the truth is, I love them all. Snape, Luna, Ron, Hermione, Fred, George, Lupin, Dumbledore, McGonagall - okay, I should probably stop now. I find Bellatrix awesome too since I saw Helena's brilliant performance in the movies. I find it fascinating to explore what are the dark characters really like and what made them that way.
    What did you think of the last movie?

    The last movie by far was my favourite. I thought it was brilliant - lots of suspense, lots of action and lots of emotion. I thought it was the perfect ending.

    The 7th book was also my favourite.

    What about you? What was your favourite book?

    It's not perfect - there were some things that I didn't like, but overall it's amazing. What I liked the best was Snape's death scene and his memories. It totally made me cry. Alan did a brilliant job.

    I can't choose between the 5th, the 6th and the 7th book.

    I'm joining in your obsessive Harry Potter discussion! I absolutely love the books - read them all many times over as I'm sure you both have Smile
    You make me so jealous - I haven't seen the last movie yet and I'm dying to. It sounds sooo good.
    JK is one of the two authors that has inspired me to write myself so I don't know where I'd be if I hadn't read the books. I still can't get over how much of an achievement that series is!
    My favourite characters are Sirius and Hermione. Although all the books are fantastic I would have the say the last is my favourite. JK answers all the questions that had been plaguing me for years and so much happens in it.

    I feel like I'm on a Harry Potter forum. Laughing But I suppose you can't love reading and writing without adoring Harry Potter as well. Unless you haven't read it yet.
    Same thing here. Those books changed my life.
    How come you haven't seen the movie yet?

    Hi! I'm Thalia.
    I don't know really what to say about writing, besides that it makes me me. It defines me. When I write, I am in some completely different world, and nothing else matters.
    Writing is exhausting, it takes a while, it's terrible when you don't know what to write, or can't remember a word, or you just didn't write enough. It makes me want to bang my head against the wall. But it's all worth it when it's completely finished and I read it, and I know that it was all made out of my own imagination.

    So, that's it. Hi, Maris!

    I love fantasy books. I see you share my love for Harry Potter. Thank god! I know a lot of people who are like #1 fans, but when I ask them if they read the book, they say: "Oh, but it's just sooooo long!" I mean, really?
    Anyway, I usually read series. I think Percy Jackson would be my favorite.

    I live in Belgrade, Serbia. I see you're from London. I've been there about a week ago, but it didn't rain at all. I was all armed with a yellow umbrella, and I ended up in a T-shirt, with a fan in my hand, and almost getting a sunstroke. And I kinda spent all my money at Waterstone's.

    Well, I'm terrible at sports, and I absolutely hate maths. I usually hang around the library. like I said, writing defines me.

    Of course I read The Lost Hero! I'm counting the days till Son of Neptune! I adore Rick's writing. His characters are just so... real. And I was just rolling with laughter while reading the books. I bought the whole series when I was in London. I guess I wanted to have it on my bookshelf too, not just on my computer. Did you read the Demigod Files?
