    Research, research, research- sometimes I feel like I do more of that than actually writing. This particular novel I started last September, shortly after my younger sister moved back to the parents place after the summer. I had this idea rolling around however none of it came...

    Hey fellow writers, so I'm currently working on

    a book. I've been looking for people that have a passion for writing and that are just starting—like me. The goal would be to work with a group of awesome writers in which the object would be to get a good promotion, recognition. I don't mean necessarily working on the same...

    I started writing my first novel in July of

    last year. I have tried writing many times before because I knew that it was something I had to do. However, I seemed to be forcing the issue rather than letting it happen naturally, and I would lose interest half way through. This one is different though! I finished my first...

    Hello, my name is Sara

    and I'm currently writing a novel in which the main character is a trans person. (a FtM or MtF, either can work) I would like if you told me your experiences as being a trans and the surgery (if you did) and the cost. Thank you, Sara

    Several, actually. One is about a good werewolf

    who hunts evil monsters. The second is about aliens playing mind games with humans. The third is about a boy with multiple personalities and his transgender friend. I hope to finish and publish all of these, and to possibly create a series out of the first.

    Perfect Stories.

    Writing a novel is so much hard work. I don't think a lot of people realise how many drafts and hundreds and thousands of hours people spend on perfecting their stories; but that's just it -- perfection doesn't exist. While I admit hard work and aiming high are good traits...
