    Eight Years and Counting

    I have been working on one story for the past eight years.  It's a children's fantasy story, and try as I might I just can't seem to get it 'good' enough.  It's into its third rewrite now and I have a team of friends proof reading it for me.  My plan is, once it is...

    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...

    "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...

    Thoughts On My Freedom (To Be Continued)

    They say I am free. I was somehow born free and not so. Born as any human creature, through my mother and into the world of earth: of earth and sky and space., of living and breathing and eating, digesting, eliminating, of feeling and dreaming, of loving...of learning. I was born...

    Working On It

    I write a lot of short stories, and am attempting a novel, but I'm not sure where to get started as far as publishing or selling them is concerned. I would love to make my living as an author, but that is going to be pretty hard if I can't find someone who is willing to publish...

    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...

    If You Want To Be A Writer Then Act Like One

    That's what someone said and he might be right. Also for being a writer u have to work hard but I'm not sure if it is not more important to have an inspiration and talent? Hm, well, I guess both matters. I just like the act of writting and creating something in my own stile, but...

    Thoughts On My Freedom Part 2 ( To Be Continued)

    Though I was born of one mother , whom I called "Mom" when I lovingly learned how, I was truly given back to my original Mother--The Cosmos--the Earth Herself. She had all I needed. She grew food for me. She provided oxygen for my newly functioning lungs. She provided all of the...

    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...

    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...
