Herpy.nu will close down in January 2018 - will be replaced by something new and better.

Herpy has had a good 13 year run and will never be forgotten for those of us who experienced it. Sadly the site is today unappealing and is no longer fit for the audience of 2018, and years of smear campaigns have given us a reputation that has been hard to shake. We therefore made the choice to close the site and move on to a brighter future. While the forums will be archived as a memory of times of past greatness, new funds have been raised and new admins have been recruited to start working on a entire new community far away from Bad Dragon and any association with that company. The gallery will remain operational in the meantime. You can follow me on Twitter for further developments. We also have a Discord server which has become the heart of the community. If you wish to join it, send a PM to Valcyrie.

Herpy have always been my little lovechild since I joined over a decade ago. But he grew up, and as he has aged with dignity its time for his hatchling to take over. A fresh start for a new generation in a new era.

Kind regards,
Valcyrie

On Writing: The Herpy Way!

Post by Koatliqua » October 5th, 2016, 9:21 pm

Hello everyone! I am one of those eccentric types who just cannot put down pen and paper, or more recently, keep away from Microsoft Word!

Everyone has their own way of writing. And I imagine everyone has their own sources of inspiration. I thought: Why not share them? It could be a good way to inspire your fellow writer, as we seem to have a few here.

Please be kind, and share your writing tips and advice, what works for you, and help inspire your fellow artists.

My first piece of advice would be to always believe in what you are writing. It may be a piece of crap to everybody else, but unless you write what you love, and love what you write, how are you ever to write at all? Weave your world free of negative influence.

Imagine: If not for this advice, I may have never filled my worlds with the scalie lizard-folk who have told so many stories and entertained my friends and I so much.
Like dew or a flash of lightning;
Thus we shall perceive them.
