    Welcome. I'm a fantasy writer, too, and I also suffer from rewriting the same books over and over again.

    I love to write about the impossible, too. As far as getting published, you never know until you try. But from what I can tell, your writing is already doing its job, as long as you keep getting better at it.
    I married my co-writer. We shared the fun of writing, now he's in the Navy and I'm at home, rewriting and (theoretically) revising.


    Stationed in Japan and loving it!

    Welcome Kate! You just need to fire and forget, or FnF, If its good its good. You can always make it better but you're not improving even if the story is.
