Hi, I'm Dread. I'm going to give a detailed breakdown of this prologue and tell you how I think it can be improved. So first I'll start...

I know most of my watchers don't hang around a whole lot anymore, but I thought I should update everyone just a bit on what's going on with me. I've started school recently, attending Loyalist College in Ontario, Canada. I'm doing a full course in journalism so I can become (big surprise) a critic. As such, my writing output is increasing significantly due to more free time when compared to my old job and an increased creative stimulus do to my daily work involving a lot of writing. I'm going full force on Guul'Zaroth lately. I have several chapters ready to go, I'm just waiting on feedback from my partner on this project. So if you like that series, good news, there is more on the way.

I'm trying to be more active on dA now. I'm doing critiques so if anyone has anything they want me to read, just let me know. I'm also looking for some active groups and to make some new contacts in the writing community on dA. Hopefully (and I know how ridiculous this sounds considering how many times I've said this in the past) I can get back to doing weekly chapters again, or at least bi-weekly. That's the plan anyway. I'm also considering returning to work on the Grimoire sequel, depending on how much time I have between chapters of Guul'Zaroth.

I'm an aspiring writer with a meagre list of professional works under his belt and many years of amateur writing in the bank. I've written a few unpublished novels and I'm currently focused on producing more content so I can grow as a writer.

I primarily consider myself a fantasy writer and humorist.

Your critique was the  best feedback I have received for my writing, since I joined DA over 12 years ago on my old account.

I sincerely appreciate the time you took to assess and respond. You have no idea. That made my day. Sincerely, you rule.

You're doing right by me with all this. Too many people just don't appreciate the hard work that goes into a detailed critique, and just get grumpy because I didn't give them a better review. Knowing that you appreciate it is encouraging and makes me want to do more critiques.

Accepting criticism is the only way, as artists, that people grow and learn. I am tired of 'oooh neato'. I want someone to rip me a new orifice, so I can see my work outside my own egocentric view, and learn a bit.

You represent a trend that is sorely lacking on here, and it is nice to know it exists.
