Default Coming Back


Hi everyone. Figured I might as well do a fresh introduction as it's been years since I last posted here, and I imagine no one remembers me.
Just about to graduate from University and I want to get back into writing, which I haven't had much time for whilst I've been studying. I feel as though coming back here might be the motivation I need to get back into it.

Welcome Back, Dela.
Is there any genre you will be focusing on?

It must have been a few years (before my time), but welcome back.

and so it felt as if the goblin's past had caught up with him again, as he looked gently upon the post itself and those words therein that so betrayed his age to him alone in their significance, indeed many years back now he remembered, before breaking out into a knowing smile and then repeating some words aloud "...so it's "when you're ready" I suppose, and yet no, it's not "when you're ready to write" by that, instead it's "when you're ready to be remembered by what you write" that tells you that you are really ready this time around, and those readers remember "continuity" mostly, alas they expect some dripfeed in output, well yes that or they move on to someone else in one's stead...", thus the posts for the author were a path on a journey to self, and for the reader a means of escape he imagined, the goblin simply bowed low and held out his hand in an invitation, the forum for its part was abuzz with activity of late much like the view from the the goblin's bistro this morning that showed a sun ablaze to the point of pulling life from the ground, "...ready yet..." he asked cordially enough
