DM name: Kiri 

Wagon interests: Arts & Crafts - I'm a quilter. I do other stuff too, but quilting is where my heart's at.

Other stuff: Uhh... I can't think of anything...

Questions: I just joined DM today, so I have no idea what's going on. hehe Feel free to point me in the right direction! I'm just happy there's a crafty group here. :laugh:

Welcome Kiri! So glad you’re here! I’d love to see some of your quilts. I’ve always wanted to make one but haven’t yet. I’m not really sure how and that’s held me back a bit. I crochet but haven’t in a long time. 

 

Ive put in requests for you and James too.

Thank you! :D

 

I have a habit of making quilts and then giving them away, I am actually only in possession of two of the quilts I've made... The very first one I made when I was 9 and a baby quilt I made in an afternoon. I'll have to dig through my photos to see if I can find any pictures of the other stuff I've made. :)

 

So... this could very well be a stupid question, but I don't know the answer so... How will I know when I've been added?

The process can take a few days.  It depends on how busy the Admins are IRL.  Once you have access, you'll be able to post in the separate Wagon boards.  So, if you see a "Start New Topic" button at the top, you're in!

@Kiri

Welcome to the Tuatha'an :)

I don't know if you can see the campfire thread but I have already made a thread with your name on it so that you can report your work. It is right here :happy:

 

Now if you already want to start working, this season's theme for the beginners' challenges is SCI FI.

Let's try something new. I never really branched out of the RP or Tower... sooo...

 

Arie

Write, Paint, Knit

I'm crafty by nature. My job is also pretty creative in nature. (I frame art!) I'm also working on a #make100 project for Kickstarter.

I heard about cookies... I also like challenges!

Welcome, Arie!  Kathleen will be along shortly to get you access to the wagons!

 

I enjoy painting, but don’t do it often.  Do you have any current projects?

I do! My knitting has been a little on the slow side (medical/work related limitations), but I'm working on a few paintings, some you can see on my instagram, and two novels from NaNoWriMo. :D

 

The painting is.. relatively new.

DM Name: jbarlow1  (I wasn't feeling too creative!), but you can all call me Justin!

Wagon Interests: Cooking primarily, and writing sometimes, as well as enjoying music and art made by others!

Other: Hmmm... I was raised by someone who went to culinary school just because he could, after medically retiring? I used to write a blog frequently, and would still if I could think of what to write that wasn't pointless! Also, semi active on Twitter!

 

Questions: None that I can think of, yet!

I'll be lurking for a while so I'll throw this up here officially.

 

Your DM Name and any nicknames you prefer: Matalina but most people call me Mat.  My writing pen name is AJ Hunter.  

 

Your Wagon Interests - Art & Crafts, Writing, Hobbies (get specific if you like):  Writing (and Drawing but the Drawing is still majorly learning)

 

Your other interests/notable acheivements/things you want us to know about you:  Mother of 2 girls, married to the man I met here at DM in 98...  I have a step son, between he and his wife they have 4 kids.  I maintain a character blog for my main character.  It's fun writing from his perspective.  Right now I'm focusing on telling his story but he rambles once and a while.  I'm learning to draw characters.  I've taken to trying illustration of them instead at the moment.  We'll see how it goes.  One day I'm going to make a super-ebook app that allows you to click a character (or a word) and it gives you more information about including where else they appear, a spoiler free history that keeps up with the story.  I also want to write a writing notebook app that is equivalent to Scrivener but online and offline and does a lot of the things I need like automatic version control.

 

Questions for us: none really.

    • Book one wasn't guaranteed any sequels when it came out, so it had to have an ending tha could pass for a stand-alone. When it sold well, sequels were green lit, and it became the first of a series.   Things changed with hindsight and Jordan changed as a writer and the story changed and grew more complicated.   and everyone leveled up, Rand and the forsaken.   you can construct meaning behind happenstance but I think it was mostly happenstance.
    • That theory actually makes a great deal of sense.   It doesn't explain why they created it in the first place though, as Jordan said it wasn't used for the purpose it was intended for. That said, I suppose it would have been very handy for Rand to have clean Saidin when he was starting out.    
      This made me think of a more literary question - should Jordan have killed off two of the chosen at the beginning of the series? It kind of undermined their status right from the start to die from an untrained farmer and a damaged plant creature. Might it have been better for Someshta to have wounded Balthamel and then Rand caught them by surprise by securing the Eye - then they retreat?    I think the ending would still have been fairly dramatic and it wouldn't really change anything about the long term arc of the series (neither character really needed to be doing anything for the next few books, they could just carry out some schemes off screen, finding artefacts etc. until they get better bodies) - but it may have built more tension to avoid the death of any of the Chosen until book 3.   Thoughts?    
    • I'll do my best to start the game on Monday. The setup is done.   I'll be doing role pms from my phone so its gonna be fairly simple. =)
    •     @Cross  Well you were a pretty amazing mentee, so I guess we did good
