    When I was in high school I used to write creatively a lot, including short stories, introductions to novels, and a little bit of PBEM role playing. However, in university, I feel like I do not have enough time, which is probably why I have taken to EP, it gives me a chance to be...

    I Used to Write All the Time

    When I was younger, I would write all the time. It was my venting source. Then, things started to change for me, I was able to talk more about my problems, and all of a sudden, the words wouldn't come to me anymore to write into stories. It's never been the same since. I almost...

    But I'm Going to Try

    I want to start writing more.. not only on here, but my own personal writing too. I've lost most of my motivation to write, and I'm also terrified of ever sharing my writing with someone else. I'm going to try to start up again, and see if I can get better results this time.
