My story writing focus is mainly on horror, action/adventure, and now apparently fantasy.
According to some it's easier to remember me as the Tumble guy.

This is will probably be published for Atlas participants and fans when its all done so we can all enjoy a seamless read through. With the original authors permission of course.
An orc named Tumble, young, wild, and free.
Life is great in a village nestled in between the mountains, the birth place of the great Orc race. But for the past century a series of brutal crusades have left them divided and broken.
The Mannate Empire threatens to swallow them whole, just as it has done with everyone else in its path. But then one day an even bigger threat to the land rises out of the fires of fate, undeterred by the ravages of time.
They call him Scourge. His forces threaten the very land, and all of life as it stands now.
Will Tumble play the role fate has dealt him and stop the evil Scourge?
Or will he abandon the world before him and find his own way?

You're alive! I was wondering lol
That is pretty tall for a girl though, but at least you can accurately let people know what the weather is!

Sometimes not thinking about it too much helps. Have you outlined or anything? If not, I would say that helps keeping you focused on your story and what's going to happen. After that it's just a matter of filling in some details.

You might want to consider training yourself to wake up a couple hours early and writing a bit. I personally found that used to help me get in a decent word count before I fucked up my sleep schedule. Also generally a good habit to have any way but I digress...
After looking into it a bit, I can see why you would be hard pressed to find info about medieval ptsd. So far from what I can see mainly, is that most knights who wrote about war and whatnot did not tend to psychoanalyze themselves. That and they would just write about events and things they saw, or give other knights advice of what to do in situations. I could imagine the stress of lots of fighting and the shitty conditions would have an affect on them though.
Also, I'll tell you what a few people have told me: Make the side branches somewhat shorter (as they probably divert from the main branch any way and don't need to be epics in themselves). Sometimes shorter and sweeter is better than dragged out and beat to death, my own advice which I'm not taking for my story &(
As I mentioned above, I will be interested to see where your story goes and how it will play out. Perhaps posting a little excerpt will help keep you motivated; it seems to work for me and a few others so I'll suggest it here as well.

Funny that you say that because I think Digit and Malk talked about that in IRC before Digit posted it.
And yeah, Berka has zero tolerance for that stuff. I had once made a reference to something to make fun of some company that posted some cya text game and Berka docked me like 15 points lol.

As my glorious thread was smited by Loony Lady Mizal, I am just going to be a thick skulled piece of shit and make a new one. Minus all the extra random stuff I threw in last time.
To start, I am 6'1-6'2, anyone feel free to comment. I can't wait to read all of one or two replies!

They're pushing her back and forth between them like some demented form of 'Hot Potato'. I loved this line.
This was well written and entertaining. Even with this short excerpt you showed that the character clearly has some life struggles and dilemmas, as well as setting up the general tone of the story.
The characters, although just introduced, each had their own personalities developed right from the start. That is not an easy feat in my opinion!
Now I am wondering what happens next and I can't wait to read this when it's published.
