    I want to be a writer.

    I would like to write the scenes that keeps popping on my mind. I tried to write them but I only got to a one sentence or two because I don't know how to describe the next scenario.

    I know I'm young, but ever

    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...

    Recently in my life I have felt

    that I want to return to writing. Writing was once such a wondrous past time when I was a child. The limitless bounds to my imagination could be captured using the limited vocabulary I had built for myself. I remember a story or two even raised a few eyebrows when I was...

    I am writing a book and it

    now has 800 pages and a lot more to go, maybe double... I wanted to know if I should split it up into separate books. Would you read a very long novel all in one go?

    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.

    I'm trying to write a novel

    but I haven't touched it in a year. I'm just really stuck. And I can't concentrate. Which sucks because I love my story. I think it's so good

    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.

    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 write short books but one of my main problems

    is i have too many ideas for books that I never end up finishing them. I just write like 1-3 chapters and then start writing another book. Any tips? Also, anyone want to trade books?

    Some things were meant to be kept.

    The first time I lost it I was in a park. Rocky saw a squirrel and WHAP! he bolted lifting me off my feet. I think the jolt loosened the wrist strap and the watch fell silently onto the soft grassy lawn. I only noticed it was gone after reining Rocky in and gathering myself.Later...

    and I'm so excited! I still can't believe the first publisher we asked said yes! Writing is my escape from everything. It's where I vent when no one will listen, or nothing can be done about a situation. I've gotten quite good at it, and I'm the only one in my class who...

    I would like to be a published author someday.

    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?

    The rain splashed his face

    I love writing so much.
