    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.

    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.

    I just started writing my book a few months ago.

    Thought I would be done within months, but so far I only have two chapters written, and they're still in first draft form. Writing is a very humbling experience.

    who can't think of a story ideas. So it takes them an agonizing amount of time, to think of one. The thing is I can think of tons of unique ideas just out of nowhere. The problem is I keep wanting to make the first draft perfect, that I end up nowhere. Also the fact I...

    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.
