If you're new to our forums or have just been lurking without posting, here's a good place to make your first post by introducing yourself. Tell us how big a Dukes of Hazzard fan you are! But remember, there IS such a thing as TMI (too much information).
Does cross-stitching excite you? Are you fascinated by watching the paint dry on your recently finished General Lee model? Are you almost finished with your life-sized toothpick replica of Cooter's Garage? Talk about your favorite hobbies here!
Everyone knows strange things go on in the Hazzard Swamp... Beware on entering this forum. The nuts hang out here. If you're one of the nuts, pay no heed to the previous warning. Don't get too nutty tho' or we'll have to have the men in white coats come pick ya up... *Warning* There may be "adult" humor in here. If you're easily offended or under 18, it is advised not to enter here. Folks, try to keep it as clean as possible.
Post your fan fic story ideas here. Someone might just pick up on one and turn it into a full fledged story. Or give us all a preview of what you're working on, whether it's a solo story or a collabrative effort (colabs in this category are not open to all to post, as they are in an RR, so choose your forum carefully!)
Official and unofficial fanfic challenges can be posted here. Official ones will be posted by Admins but anyone can issue a challenge to their fellow writers. Rules & due dates (if applicable) should accompany each challenge.
Sorry for the delay!!! Chapter 69 "Your Sins Shall Find You" is up now and hopefully no one (including me, haha) will have to wait a year for the next one. There should be about 3 more chapters.
If anyone has forgotten what Halls of Stone and Iron is about, here is the summary:
When Enos is arrested for a murder he didn't commit, his life will never be the same. Remanded to the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta to await trial, how long can he hold on to his sanity in a world where the only good cop is a dead one? One person still believes in him, and it will be up to her to save his life. If you're looking for a cream-puff story, you should move on. A lot of research went into making this story both canon compliant and realistic. Prison isn't a safe place for cops. Crime/Suspense/Psychological Trauma/Adventure (Enos centric, but involves all characters).
Hey Dixie, Well...I'm sort of back, lol. I forgot to post the update to Halls of Stone and Iron here, so I will. Also, I'm in the process of going through all my Dukes fics and fixing a few things. No one has complained (I've gotten plenty of raves, actually), but honestly, I tried to read them and I don't like the phonetic spellings in my dialogue. (Like shortening to as t' and the as th' and droppiing g's of of words ending in "ing".) To me, the story gets lost, and when you are reading a story where you know the characters, you already understand how they speak. Fanfiction writing for me has always been a stepping stone to writing original fiction someday, and it's been a learning process of what works and what doesn't, what others enjoy reading, and what I enjoy writing (suspense/angst) and what I don't (any kind of love scene). I've "fixed" all 70 Chapters of Halls finishing up the other fics.
