    I know I am 14 and most kids my age don't

    even think about writing a book! But I want to write a book so badly! Last night it had a nightmare than ended in a good dream. It inspired me so so much to write a book! How do I get started?

    I want to write magic.

    I want to write something that will affect someone or maybe even change the world. Yeah, I'm a bit delusional, but dreams don't build themselves.

    My Book

    Who doesn't? I think it's a cool thing to have written something and have it published. I have had a title and a main character in my head for years. I sat to write and then stopped. I always go back to it my head and think about how I want the story to go. I think it's so...

    I've been planning a novel

    to be honest. "Ramblings of an ADHD kid" That's what id call it, a story of what goes on in the head of a young adult with ADHD living in the middle of nowhere in 'good old Blighty' (England in other words). Half of it would be just what the title implies.. Ramblings. About...

    I like writing stories,

    but I never think they're any good. I'll start writing a story, think it's at least somewhat good and keep going. And what could have been an amazing story if anyone else wrote it, is now a piece of trash. I wish I could write well. I think that would be my one wish if I get one...

    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.

    The Writer

    I always get (what I believe are) great ideas,

    but always end up not writing them down or sidetrack to some lesser class story... I need to do something about it or I lose one of the last of my skills I believe are worth an intercourse.
