I am more of a speaker than a writer. I just dislike writing essays and whatnot. The only circumstances I see myself writing a book is if I were famous and it was an autobiography.

I've always felt I had a book in me :D A fantasy, though, no boring nonfiction! Maybe one day you guys'll be reading my books and you'll be saying, "Jeezum, I met this girl online! What talent!" ...not really XD

Anyway, I've had this story idea in my head, it's possible I might want to make it into a book someday.

I have a lot of story ideas in my head. But if anything, I might just translate it into a screenplay than a book.

I don't plan to write a book, but I do plan to write a screenplay. I'm currently studying how to write on. But it won't be something that I'll try to sell. It's really about self-therapy for me. The thought of me writing a screenplay that's about things I've been through in life, and having people read and analyze it or critique it scares me.

I see it's been a while since this thread has gotten some action, but here's a tip for anyone interested:

Have you guys checked in to NaNoWriMo (National November Writing Month)? The goal is to write a 50k word novel in a month. It's very treacherous but if you get a significant amount done (even if you don't hit the 50k word count) it's very rewarding. I've never been able to get past the first week, but I plan on trying again this year.. as I have the past two years xP

Yes I do plan on writing a book. A series of Sci-Fi stories intended for ages 12 and up in fact.
I have my first book halfway finished but I need to do some revision to check for consistency errors.

I like to write, I may. I usually like to write about adventure, action, Fantasy, and Mystery.
But what if Andy gets another dinosaur? A mean one? I just don't think I can take that kind of rejection. Im a OFFICIAL PIXARTEER Image Image

I was actually wiriting a book and it was going well even spoke to a publishing company about self publishing. But my laptop crashed and all my work was lost so I decided to pursue my career goal (racing) and leave writing for when I retire.

I am considering writing a screenplay right now. In college I am talking a fiction writing class. I think I have a great idea for an animated film.

I figure I'll show you the story I've been writing.

This isn't the updated version. So this is only the beginning of it.

Well, I have this awesome story idea I've been working on for the last couple of years. I've always wanted to write stories, but only this latest one has been any good. The others were these trippy mash-ups of whatever books I happened to like at the time. I write whenever it comes to me, but I really should write more :/ What's important to me right now is creating strong, fully developed characters. Without that, I'm not going anywhere. And that just takes time.
Great. Now I have guilt!
