    I really hope that my brother will never see

    this, you see he doesn't quite think I can do it. I'm studying science though I hate. My parent's aren't making me but it's how our education in Morocco works. I can't wait to graduate to go to college, overseas hopefully. Writing is something I love to do it's my passion. I've...

    So I joined a creative writing group.

    Last week two people read their work and the quality of it blew me away. Next week it's my turn to read and I just don't know if I'm good enough. I've written a story today, and whilst I don't think it's terrible I know it's nothing special either. I'm really nervous and not...

    Fever It was early when you let yourself out.

    Maybe it was too early in the morning, or maybe it was just too soon. Maybe there's no difference at all. You didn't stop to say goodbye that day, and I woke up wondering. I wish you had left me wondering, but instead you came back. Here's to the night I stood alone. Here's to...

    Everyone Else ....

    I have changed so much in the past few months. Everyone tells me how normal I have been acting compared to the way I had been for the past twelve years. " Normal ." That's what they all say eventually. Everyone can see it except the person I really need to. She was my entire...

    Stories

    Would be nice to write... But I hardly write anything and it's a tough job. I don't get inspired. Perpetually low on juice. I do enjoy a good read though.

    On the Inside Looking Out Writing is all I

    ever wanted to do. The first diary ever given to me was a gift from my brothers’ godparents back in 1975. Kindergarten was soon to start and the minute knowledge I attained on writing was what television, or my mother, instilled. The learning of these symbols was exciting...

    Writing Gives Me A Place Where Only Can Go

    Or possibly not. When I was younger I used to

    write a lot. Most of my output were silly stories I wrote to try to amuse my friends and get attention. The stories were mediocre at best but it led to a half-baked idea that I could be a writer ( I wasn't that good at planning for the future - still aren't), so I chose my...

    I love writing! It's one thing I'm really,

    really good at! It's so fun and I live being creative. When I write I visualise what it will look like, I start being a director also. I use Celtx and I occasionally write down what shot will work here and what will work there etc. I would encourage everyone to give it go!

    A Novelist to Be Exact

    Ever since I was about 9 years old, I have been aspiring to be a novelist. It's been ten years and while I have yet to finish even one story, I can't give up. It's funny how I've changed over the years. I started out with horror then I considered mystery and tried suspense. For...

    Short Stories of Adventure.

    I love writing short stories. Sharing adventures that are dear to me.  It's the taking the reader for a ride. If just for a moment. That in itself is a thrill.

    To perpetuate and to be perpetuated are perhaps

    two of the several reasons why someone writes. In my case, these are my personal ones that keep myself flowing the ink. It does not matter and I do not care when will I stop, as long as I am relieved. Perhaps I have this unusual kind of anxiety, or rather fear, that most elders...

    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.
