Hello, I'm Balin Lord of Moria. I enjoy writing short stories and poems, hence my interest in Fictionpress (dot) com. I have no set goals in mind, other than to write some relatively good stuff for others and myself to read on this site.
My avatar is the Codex of Ultimate Wisdom from the Ultima computer games of the '80's and '90's. I like it because it's a spiritual symbol of sorts for the virtues that so many people strive to live for in life, and I, myself, believe that virtue is much better than vice.
Some personal things that are too private to write about here make it possible for me to write stories and poems from several perspectives and numerous subjects.
My favorite kinds of fictions to write are currently: Kids, Fable, Essay, and Humor, though sub-categories like Action, Fantasy, and Sci-Fi are not too far behind, and General fictions are sometimes good to write, too. I might try my hand at writing a Play and/or a Mythology at some point in the future.
My favorite kinds of poetry to write are currently: Life, Love, and Nature, although I'm also pretty good with Haiku poetry.
I'm starting to write some poems, essays, and short stories about fictitious animals I am creatively making up. The poems and essays are called my: Poems/Essays of Made-Up Animals. The poems will all be Nature and Fantasy related.
