    I have this wonderful concept that's in my head,

    and I've even planned it out till the end, but I don't know how to start writing it down! Like, I forget the beginning but I still remember the end. It's annoying and I just want to write, but it's hard when I'm stuck like this.

    I want to write a book to make people wonder

    about the world, about life. I have thought of theories that cover almost all basic grounds of philosophy, such as higher powers, fate, life, individuality, existance of things, epistemology and free will. It may not sound like much, but it doesn't even has to be right; it just...

    I know I`m probably to young to write a proper

    book, but I really want to do it! I have a little daydream of walking into a bookshop and seeing my name on one of the covers. It would be amazing if it really happened.

    and I need some readers to let me know if what I've got so far is moving in the right direction. Comment or shoot me a message if you're up for reading a "hot off the presses", Craig Newman original.

    She walked the burning sand with bare feet,

    I need a crash course in grammar.

    The artistry part I've got page after page of. But what is an adverb? Where does a semicolon go? Can I put a dash there? When should my chapters break and how do I let the reader know we are moving in and out of flashbacks? A little polish would do me well.
