I Am Trying to Be a Writer

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 133 People

    I'm Working On It...

    I've been writing novels for about three years.  A lot of ideas and half-started ones have been scrapped but recently I've been kind of proud of myself and my writings.  The subjects have gotten more mature and I think my writing style has really improved. I haven't...

    I Guess Its Ok

    I really love writing, I think, but I can't seem to get it together. Its a bit disscouraging when I hear that sometimes it takes years to create a story good enough to get published, I don't think I can wait 10 years for someone to like my stories.

    Fishing For Love

    When I was a young man of 15, I enjoyed fishing in a stagnant slough near my home. I often caught a good number of catfish and bluegill in the slough but my mom rarely cooked any of them because she feared that they might be contaminated. One beautiful spring day I went to my...

    "Trying"

    It's kind of funny that I stumbled across this group (another example of why EP is so amazzzzzing).   Anyways, in a way I have always considered myself a "writer" in a sense, because just like any other art there are different severity's, talent levels...

    Any Tips?

    First, i just want to say, that the reason why my english might not be accurate is that i live in Denmark :) - Okay, so i'm writing this story. It's about a circus, and it takes place in the end of the 1800s and in the start of the 1900s. I won't take your time by giving you any...

    Why Try So Hard?

    I love writing - i write everyday. Songs, poems, stories, novels and so on. I don't write fast though, but i'm good at it too. But what makes me different from all of you guys, is that i don't write because i wan't somebody to 'like' my story. I don't think about, that someday...

    Trying Anyway

    I have wanted to be a writer ever since I was a child. There was a time when I was 100% sure that I could make it happen, but I'm not so sure now. I write to vent. I write because I know I am good at it and every time I let someone read my work, they confirm that. But my biggest...

    Hidden Light

    I am not her. I am trapped inside her stupid, miserable life, but I am not her. I am far more beautiful. I am powerfully creative. I burst with love and light, every color. I am not her. She only lets me out in sobs of longing, keeping me veiled. She aches for me. I live inside...
