    FICTIONAL. Would a book about islamic state be

    good ? Like if they came here and created a territory like they have in iraq and had different resistance groups fighting back with a first person view from a group?

    I want to write a book just

    for the sake of writing it. I have before actually. I've started more than one book, none of which I finished until this last one. I'll probably be rewriting it for the rest of my life, or forget it altogether and start a whole new story. Either way, it's ok. Simply finishing a...

    I started "Code Red" five years ago

    and gave up a quarter of the way. I started "Exploration Chronicles" last year and gave up on the first chapter. Am I lazy? I am thinking of writing "Big boy". Will I be lazy? I don't know.

    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.

    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.
