As the title says does anyone write stories for the sheer joy of it outside of any sort of school assignment? If you do what sort of things do you like to write about? I know there's a thread about drawing but I don't think there's one for writing. Anyway,


I generally tend to write about military units in the future, such as space infantry groups or regular ground soldiers. I also have stories all across the board involving werewolves and the like based off of Larry Correia's Monster Hunter universe as well as other fanfic type stuff for other things that have already been created but I feel that I need to add to.

I write short-ish stories now and then, but not really seriously. They tend to be pretty silly as well, but eh.

I generally write about third-person zombie epidemics, or anything to do with medieval fantasy. I'm a boring person :P.

I do. Poems too sometimes.

The inevitable tug of heartstrings. The dancing ballerina pen.

There is a voice within me
That will not be still"

I used to. I have a 50,000-word story that I started a couple of summers ago and then just stopped. I don't see the appeal in creative writing anymore. Oddly enough, I much rather enjoy the analytical essays I'm required to do in school.

Ever read The Solitude of Prime Numbers by Paolo Giordan?

Good read.

If poetry counts, yeah. I've always wanted to write a story that will make people want to reread it over and over, but I get writer's block a lot and sometimes forget an awesome idea I thought a minute ago. >:(

I love writing. It's like my getaway from the grind of everyday life. If I feel stressed, I'll either sit down and write, or I'll get lost in space thinking about their setting and background... stuff like that. It's like my very own mini-vacation.

I enjoy writing fanfiction (and I also consider Role-Playing a form of fanfiction, even if the setting is the only thing I've borrowed for the RP), poetry, and sometimes original short stories. Usually my work consists of some bittersweet elements, plot twists, fantasy, and usually some amount of sci-fi (or other technological element), but I have been known to break my own rules. One of my favorite short stories (when I say favorite, I mean the one I'm most proud of) was a happy-ending, sweet story with fantastical elements. It had only positive emotions, and that was a first.

Usually when I write, it's less me dictating what should happen, and more -having created the characters down to the tiniest detail- watching their story unfold when I put them in a certain plot situation, and taking note of what happens.

Because of this, I don't think I could ever force myself into it as anything more than a hobby - nothing would flow, and nothing would be any good.
