So You Wanna Be a

..writer? Great! If you are like me, you just might be having trouble accomplishing this goal.

I have whole months in my writing life when I don't write, but on the other hand, I have whole months when I do nothing else but write. How hard is writing for you? Do you love writing? Are you addicted to writing and if you are how do you feed your addiction? What do you have to say about writing and wanting to be a writer?

I love to write, its my favorite thing to do, but it can be so frusturating when one day you can't lift your pen off the page your so inspired and then the next its complete and total blank, i wanna become a young author, my goal is to publish a book befor i turn twenty, that is six, almost seven yers away. i think i can do it, i write chapters of different ideas here and there and show them to kids at school and they say that they want the next chapter repeditaly, so i think i can do it.

To almost all (don't count this as an insult, I am just telling what I am really thinking) Sorry but your thoughts are still so naive, so... childish. That's what I feel, and I am too tired and bored with those thoughts. You simply think becoming a writer who truly writes is that easy? Just your need to write is NOT enough. NEVER enough. Read some REAL fictions and non-fictions books (not just books you feel wonderful and easy while reading them) and look at how much you have done to improve your soon(but-who-know-when) -to-be-writer-career. Do you know how hard it is for a real writer to get over his/herself's ego? Sorry, from your ways of expressing ideas, I have little faith.<br />
Take these thoughts from a copy editor. I am not insulting anyone. Believe me.

Wow i see for the comments that people in here can write easily.<br />
<br />
I've found this myself lately, basically thanks to this site.<br />
I'm not good with converations but i'm good to express my thoughts and my feelings to the world in a written form. I feel separated from my body, like the words being an extension of myself.<br />
<br />
Often i write in here stories about my ideals, my way of thinking, all i want is for everyone to see the world as i see it, to give all my ideals, my thoughts to the world, so they can have another door to choose in their path. I want to change the world, all my life have been dedicated to learn, i want to tell the world what i've learnt, and i want them to know that if it's anyone like me, i will personally go with them on the path, so then i can wide my perspective, in my life i had revelations, i suddenly become aware, and i want to share this feeling to the world.<br />
<br />
I've just realized that i love writing, but i'm still a newborn. I know nothing about it yet, i just let go by the flow, i lose my point sometimes, i always need to learn something new, i'm sure i'll learn something in here.<br />

Greetings to all of you, we will change the world by writing.

I'm writing my memoirs in fits and starts. I have a love-hate relationship with writing. Taking the time to write my project is difficult, especially if I am not feeling inspired. Writing can be painful and torturous. But I would be miserable without having my writing as an outlet. Writing is cathartic for me, helps me understand my experiences and sometimes offers me the possibility of transcending them.

wow writting is something i do everyday wether its stories poems or a 50 page book <br />
<br />
i write when im mad and sad and happy i write to get my frustrations out<br />
<br />
writitng is a way to escape for me i guess you could say <br />
<br />
if i have paper and a pencil and a topic i can write for hours<br />
<br />
its funny sometimes when im bored i pretend like i have a paper to do on some topic and that i have a deadline its corny i know but its what i do and i read alot to because after i have read a good book i feel smarter and my vocabulary grows<br />
<br />
Writing in one word is amazing

Wow.<br />
<br />
I never thought about writing as an addiction. At times I felt as though blogging was an addiction but after four years of hosting my own personal blog soap opera I let it go to focus on other creative outlets.<br />
<br />
There is rarely a day that goes by that I don't write. I have to begin my day by writing in my gratitude journal. I usually produce an article everyday. If I don't do an article I have to write an inspirational story. Even posting this story counts as writing!<br />
<br />
I love it, live it, sleep it, have sex with it, fondle it, birth it and breathe it.<br />
<br />
I can live my whole life on this couch with this lap top...<br />
<br />
I am so satisfied... ~smile~<br />

Well..maybe a man to come rub on my booty every now and then would be nice..but other than that.just me and the internet!
