At the moment I am writing an anime fanficion, harry potter newest generation stories and telling stories in general. I am looking at Writing Historical Ficton just finished Kook (which is a very nice romance YA novel) my favorite book is the Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong. It is actually the final book of the Darkest Powers Trilogy. The thing that got me started writing is the Darest Powers Trilogy and just going to my school's Creative Writing Club (which I really love) and after that I just started writing in general since I love telling stories. My favorites genre is actually Teen/YA novels, maybe a little romance in the mix 😉

I guess I should introduce myself, too. I'm currently working on editing my book Fate, which you can find here on Tablo. I've just finished rereading We Were Liars by E Lockhart, one of my favourite YA books. My favourite book is Paperweight by Meg Haston. I've​ been writing bits and bobs basically forever, but I started seriously writing when I had a dream based around a group of my friends, and they asked me to expand on it. Long story short, that's how Fate came to be!

Hello, everyone!

I'm currently writing my first horror book for Tablo! I have a few new books in the works that are more geared toward romance and mythology.
My favorite book is "The Fault in Our Stars" by John Green and I'm currently reading "13 Reasons Why" by Jay Asher.

I started writing for fun when I was around the ages of 12-13 and didn't truly start taking it seriously until I was about 16-17. What I loved about writing was I could create a world of my own that I could escape to whenever I wanted.

Hey there! I'm currently writing a YA Fantasy novel (Dandelion) and an LGBT spin-off novella set in the same universe(The Hunting Party). At the moment I'm reading a few fantasies off Instafreebie and some books on the AP Lit suggested reading list to prepare for my upcoming exams. I don't pick favorite books, but I recently read Six of Crows and I am absolutely in love.
I started writing around 9 when a classmate said she was writing a book and tried to get down the myriad stories from a universe I've been cultivating in my head, but I gave up on that a while back. I took my writing seriously when I first did Camp NaNoWriMo in 2013, and I've been participating in every NaNo session since. My goal is to finally finish a first draft, which is something I have a lot of difficulty with, and then have at least one finished book of mine on my shelf.

Hello as you can guess my name is Chelsea and I'm writing a few books right now like city chic. All my books are either teens or adult because of strong language. I speak 2 languages Portuguese and English (obviously) and I love to write but read, not so much.

Hi, I'm Luaus, or Lydia. I currently have three book ideas - Alpha a fantasy for teenagers, Implosions and Explosions, and Purple. I try and make my novels very honest with experiences and opinions I have, so Imp and Ex is hovers between Young Adult and Adult, and so does Purple which is a political Sci-Fi. Speaking of Sci-Fi my favourite book is probably The Dispossessed by Ursula Le Guinn, it sticks in your brain for weeks, and is what inspired me to think of Purple. Currently I'm not reading much but I'm watching a lot Jenna Moreci videos which are amazing for learning helpful tips for writing. While I've always loved writing, and my first go at it was age 10, it was mainly Gabby's writing Fate that made me think it was an option, and the Raised by Wolves series that I was given.

Hi, I'm Phoenix. I'm currently working on Singing Love Songs to Deaf Ears, a book about relationship abuse and how it can happen to young people. As for reading, I'm about half way through Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. My favourite book is A Swift Pure Cry by Siobhan Dowd. I first got into writing as a coping mechanism for some difficult times I went through.

Hi Phoenix, I really love your book, I was wondering if you might be looking for an editor to help out?

Hi, guys, I joined this website a month ago. I have accounts on other writing sites but I thought I should give this one a try. I'm currently writing a book called 'A Billionaire's Woman'. It's mature romance, and I plan on bringing books from my other sites over here so that you all can read it.

Hello! I've been working on my novel, Quinn and the Metropolis, for six years. It took me so long because I feared making mistakes, but now, I have grown more confident with my writing. That's why I'm here now. :)

It's about a girl struggling with supernatural powers in a fictional world. The powers cause one disaster after another. She wants to reach out for help from someone, but she isn't entirely sure who to trust.

By the way, since I'm new here, how will I know someone responds to a reply? Where's Tablo's notification system?

Thumb 0430e1d4 dc80 4081 8d4b 1dd30566bf9e

As far as I'm aware, they don't specifically let you know, I just tend to keep checking back
Your book sounds really cool, I'll check it out after my exams 😊

What are you writing at the moment? I am between a few things right now. I have two Legend of Zelda fan books. One series is a timeline piece catered to Ocarina of Time while the other I created for anyone to enjoy. I am also working on notes for a Mystery/Thriller I intend to start up again after losing it years ago. I am currently reading two things. One is a murder mystery called Closure by Robert Roy Britt. The other is a light novel series called Highschool DxD. I want to read past the point where the anime left off because I can't wait for the new season. I don't have a favorite book in this series but my heart belongs to J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter. Even today the story is still magical and enjoyable; proving that magic isn't just for children to enjoy. My Legend of Zelda fanfiction "A Hero's Return" started me on my path to writing. Originally it was a one chapter piece that had to be put for years before I eventually remembered it and knew where I wanted to take it. It was when I got into it that I found my love of writing.

im writing a YA fantasybook her on tablo. im from norway so my writing is in norwegian. I usally read a lot of books at the same time, but now its is rereading of harry potter, but im also reading a darker shade of magic by V.E. Schwab. i have to many books that i really love. but uprooted by Naomi Novik is the book that got me into reading again and really got me started on my dream of writing. it will always have a special place in my heart.
i always loved fantacy, and as a little girl i dreamed a lot. and when i started to read big books at 10 years old the dream of writing something of my own started to grow. and now i finally started on that dream.

Hi! My name is Alex and I'm currently writing a fiction book with a little bit of romance called 'The sun falling for the moon'.
Right now I'm re-reading the Hunger Games series and reading Miss peregrines home for peculiar children.
I would have to say my favourite books are the Harry Potter series.
I've basically been writing ever since I could read and write. The people that most inspires me to write would have to be the people that can't or don't write at all, but can read. I just want to make them happy through what I love to do.

Hello, everyone, I'm Shayna, I'm 13 years old, and writing a book called The Mirror and the Storybook. I would have to agree with Alex and say that Harry Potter would be one of my favorite series, my second favorite would have to be Wings of Fire.
I'm not very good at writing about myself, but I just wanted to say hi and tell a little about me.

Like I said, I'm not too good at writing about myself, and I forgot to say that I'm currently reading a book called Hunter by Mercedes Lackey. The book that I'm writing was actually started as a short story I did for school.

Hi, my name is Rory. I am thirteen years of age and I am working on a couple of different books. (The one being most complete being called Phoenix fires.) My favourite book has to be "grief is the thing with feathers" as it is original and funny, (yet in some places it is rather strange and funny.) my Favourite book series, (not sure if it counts) is Agatha Christie's Poriot cases, my favourite of them being death on the Nile.

Hello all! My name is Alice-Elizabeth and I'm 19 years old. I live in England and am participating in Nanowrimo writing a YA coming-of-age novel in letter format. Although I have fallen behind with my word count, the support here for my novel so far has been absolutely incredible. I also blog and review books for publishers, listen to lots of music and enjoy photography. :)

Hi, I'm Aria Sienna, or at least that's my pen name. I came here because I'm a very young, barely teen, budding author. I really love to hear feedback on my books and having them read.

I just finished my Fantasia series of short stories, and a short romance called New Year's Eve.

I'm reading Keira Savages series, the legends of Sciana here on Tablo.

Writing is my life, and I probably have more books or short stories that I've written in my lifetime than friends, which isn't really a problem for me. For the most, I write fantasy, fanfics and romance short stories. I'm so glad to be part of this community, as I'm now surrounded by authors just like myself.

Luv you all!

Oh yeah, my fav book is... either the Eragon series by Christopher Paolini or the Zarkora series by Nicholas and Alison Lochel, and what got me started was my imagination. It's always been vivid, and when we got to write narratives in school I could finally release that and let it explode in my writing.

Hi, I'm Adrian. I'm a writer (of sorts). I was based on another writing site, but unfortunately I can't access it anymore. I wanted my writing to be out there still, though, so after looking for a ridiculously long time, I found Tablo! *waves awkwardly*

Hi!
I'm not exactly new to Tablo, but rather a returning member after about a year's hiatus.
I'm looking to meet other writers and make new friends with the same interests as me! My favourite genres are YA-fantasy and -sci-fi, I am a 3x indie author and a Creative Writing undergrad. Drop me a line any time!

The Vampire Control System (VCS) appreciates your support. Together, we can make this world a place of harmonious living for everyone. If we are to evolve as humans then we must embrace, encourage, and edify those around us that want to live in peace, but require a piece of us to make that a reality.

Hey there, this is one of two YA stories I'm working on. My first is not on here yet, but will be uploaded soon. Until then, check out my story O Negative, which follows a young girl named Marissa. She's caught in a world that embraces the ideologies of intolerance, and inclusivity, all while pandering to Vampires that want to do nothing more than tear them apart.
