And trust me, I know. I've read some sci fi books where the author's really get absorbed in the vision of this world they're creating that it can be hard for not-so-big sci fi fans to get into. But if ever do a sci fi, I'll be careful with it so it's comfortable enough for n00bs.
But aye, I wish you all the best Dawn on your novel ideas :3 as that guy from Tangled once said 'go, live your dream'
I started with fanfics. I still write them today, just so much as I'm trying to focus on doing more original stuff since I want to make something for myself. I have done a couple of short original stories now and again, but they aren't anything I've posted online. But I do enjoy writing too ^^ I love getting lost in what i'm doing and making things.
Allow me the honor of being the first to post. If Blood Omen 2 had had a little more polish, better direction, and not have that red riding hood cloak, I think it would have been a considerably better game. As it is, it's a game that had promise, but unfortunately, could not quite reach the dizzying heights already reached by the first Soul Reaver.
