Now Has Guilt wrote: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.


That sounds great! And you're right, afterall, Rome wasn't built in a day!

Well how are you planning on tackling it so it doesnt turn out to be a plan anymore?

All sorts, really! Not sure yet what time periods I want to focus on, but it'll probably include bits of everything from the time of the American colonies onward. Definitely will involve Industrial Revolution(s), WWII, the 50s, 60s, 70s. A longtime obsession with Pride and Prejudice means that the Regency's going to be involved, too :D

That seems like a Epic Tale Guilt! It's like the 'neverending hi-story'!

I'm still in the progress of finishing my four-part novel series, with just one last book to go and about halfway through the book as well. Finally, After 2 years of good focus and 1 year of on-and-off writing, I've finally come to the close with my very first serious novel!

Thanks! Yours sounds great too. Congrats on getting close to the end! I'm sure you're excited :D

I'm more relieved than excited. I can finally work on other projects with it out of the way!

I've just joined a site called Wattpad. It's a book writing/reading site.

The only stories that I've ever written are on fanfiction.net. I think that is as far as I'm gonna go as far as book writing is concerned.

^ I've never actually done my own fanfiction, but I've roleplayed in other people's stories and such and I love it! I have problems coming up with ideas, but I've always felt like my writing is pretty good...but then it's someone else's idea -__-
I'm a proud Pixarteer!

I'm always afrid to put my ideas on the page because I fear that the idea has been done before.

That's understandable. Well, most everything has been done these days, it's all about doing it differently.

Being Orginal is still possible. Chris Nolan proved that (Inception)
