    I Want To Improve

    However, like a spoonful of jam smoothed over an enormous toasted crumpet, I've spread myself extra thin with the things I need to improve on. On my list is "become a better" writer, artist, musician, athlete, friend, lover and general human being. I just don't have the time...

    Writer's Block.

    I have been writing since I was 5. I started out with cute little Scooby-Doo fanfics that made no sence. Slowly I developed my writing technique, and got better at it. I can be quite discriptive at times. I've been praised many times for my writings, even got some peoms...

    I've always been good at writing.

    I've had standing ovations. I'm known for my writing and presentation skills. My principle even read my essay over the intercom! But it isn't always easy. A truly good piece of writing takes time and effort. That is why I always practice. Writing isn't always a walk in the park...

    Always Room For Improvement

    Spelling, sentence structure, saying things that you know the dates and facts are correct for the period in which you are laboring to have people want to read what you are saying... Writing is sometimes one HELL of a lot of work. But if you consistently receive praise or...

    Looking For Feedback And Critisism

    I love creative writing but think I could really do with some pointers from more experienced writers. I'd like to do a blog to but have no idea where to start. I really like developing my characters in stories, putting them in unusual or challenging circumstances and surprising...

    I Want to

     More than any other personal dream, I want to become a writer. I love to read, and always have- my parents inspired that in me. I've been keeping a journal since I was seven, and it's compulsive now for me to record almost every event in my boring little life... whether...

    Word

    I want to increase my vocabulary when it comes to writing. I have the ability to speak quite eloquently when necessary however I have trouble expressing those same things through my writing. My stories and poems seem so simplistic which bothers me. Compared to others...

    The Gap Seems Insurmountable

    -I just wish that my skills could keep up with my inspiration. But it seems that no matter how hard I try, I can never convey my vision into words. It's always so lacking, and I can't stand it! The desire to write burn in me, and yet no words come to me. I could try writing...

    Better.

    I am a good writer, but I want to be a better writer. I especially want to work on dialogue. I have a very hard time with that due to the fact that there's so little dialogue in my own life. I feel I can't make dialogue realistic unless I have it in my own life, & since it's...

    I've Always Been A Good Writer..

    -- in my teens. I was so amazing that I couldn't read my "stories" without wondering how I did it. It's like whatever comes to my head would end up connecting all the dots in the pages before without a problem. Characters were believable. Dialogues felt both witty and real...
