I use a few web sites off and on to "inspire" me to write, but I think I need to take a class to give me better focus when it comes to my writing. I mean I do it moderately ok, but I tend to just write 4 to 10 pages then stop and never pick it up again. It's pretty much my MO. :)

But do you guys write and if so what and where? Could be anything, a blog, stories, songs, slogans (won a contest once doing a caption for Ford in Maxim magazine)..

I like writing my thoughts down on the internet so that people will learn from them. To me the internet is an electronic book

I adore writing myself. for me, I didn't really do any classes, well there is English class, but I mean anything other than that. what I did was follow Stephen King's advice, read and read often. don't use that to steal ideas, but use that to improve your skills. and read anything and everything, from self published to books with agents. you can tell the dos and don'ts of writing. such as the horrors, grammar and typos in the grey books vs things you'll find in legends such as King, Rice and Koontz.

and yes, the joke grey book (the soft porn for bored housewives) I could never get into because it had literally too much wrong with it, not to mention the plot, but all those mistakes. but yes, compare, read and enjoy. try to stay on task of writing, having too many things present can be complicated in trying to keep the plots together. experiment and explore. you are the writer, we are the reader, whatever genre you're focused on, improve, adapt and have fun.

lastly, there's nothing wrong or against the theory of revisiting thing and re-writing or adding more things to to. a lot of writers do, including pen names. best of luck.

I love to write. Currently working on a project involving half demons, war and forbidden romances. It's an amazing rush every time I see my words spring to life before my eyes. Worlds, countries, governments, and peoples all are created from that tiny little space and blossom into their own little private universe.

I write poetry constantly since I perform at slams, and I've been brainstorming worlds and plots for stories for the past couple months. I love writing so much.

I also write rap lyrics just to flex muscles and laugh with my friends lol.

And I write on the bus, train, at school and home.

Nope, I despise writing stories and the like. Had enough of it after my English classes in High School where I had to make stories for a final project.

I write anime fan-fiction as a hobby (although lately real life has slowed that writing down). I've also been writing a personal suspense novel for quite a few years now and tend to find myself unhappy, a lot, re-writing it again and again (and again) .

I like writing, but hate my writings, and so I get too frustrated and disgusted with myself and quit before getting 3 sentences in.

I like coming up with ideas and outlines for stories and the occasional terrible poem. Actually fleshing them out into proper novelization is another matter entirely.

I just want to proudly say that I completed a novel. Other than that, yeah I love and sometimes hate writing.

Same here, though I often suffer from an acute case of writers block.

I do love writing. I enjoy writing fanfiction when I want to write but don’t want to come up with new characters and all that comes with it or I feel there’s a story that’s not being told on the tv show. I’m planing a novel too but that’s one of those things that’s going to take a looooong time to write if it ever gets out the planning stage hehe! Nothing wrong with having a goal
