    I thought of a story yesterday

    that I'm going to try to serialize on EP. I was window shopping on "Hot or Not" yesterday, and I thought, what if there was a casual dating app for people like me? My provisional title is: "The League of Broken People". Basically, each chapter would detail a date between the...

    I love writing so much.

    Ever since I was little I would make stories and tell them to my audience (toys) and then I started writing them down. Today I write whenever I get the chance. In my journals, laptop even Ipod. I make notes and get inspired by reading books and watching movies. I hope there...

    Inner Child:

    Life is hard as we walk through the years Steps we all take bring laughter or tears. It starts with birth, that first burst of light. Eyes flutter shut, cuz it seems so bright. Needs are so simple, warmth of a breast. A blanket so warm, forms our first nest. Life beckons...

    Would really like some advice

    as far as getting more writing done. The obvious answer is just do it I get that. What I would like to here is what method do you use personally and how much do you get done? Do you write 500 words a day? A whole chapter? Can you only devote an hour a day? Stuff like that. I try...

    since I can remember I've wanted to be a writer. It's my passion, it's what keeps me happy in those sad times. I find that writing is the only way for me to truly express myself. When I write, it's like I'm transported into a whole different world, a world where anything is...

    More than anything in the world.

    I have no idea what I want to be or do in my life other than write. I love writing poetry and short stories. Falling in love with words and getting lost in stories, it's amazing. One day I hope to be a beloved published author, one day.

    Always wanting, never being.

    .. Honestly, if ever I wanted to be something, I wanted to be a writer. But whenever it came to actually write, I lacked initiative. Every inspired thought I ever had, I left to waiting, to hunger, to starve of my lack of action. A creative, inventive mind can set you apart from...

    The Cabin Witch

    She lives alone, in an isolated cabin in the mountains. She is there now, waiting. I've written about Mercy Weaver for twenty years. I age, she holds firmly within her youthful glory. I write her life, I become her inner self. I abandon her. I sometimes leave her in turmoil, or...

    I've always wanted to be a writer.

    The written word has always come so naturally to me. When my spoken word fails me the written ones never do. I read my work from high school and miss how much I use to write. I miss my notebooks being filled with random story ideas or short stories I wrote. I miss the passion I...

    I hope it can happen, but the problem is that nobody is really there to motivate me. Sometimes as well, I can get a pretty good idea but simply feel like giving up. Any helpful advice?

    Ep Spark

    Never thought myself much of a writer, but my time here on ep has unearthed a passion within me that I never want to extinguish. I don't know if I have the talent, but feel there is a story to be written that may be bigger than ep. Thank you ep, thank you my friends on ep.
