I like to write poetry and short stories. I have the ideas for novels but lack the skills to properly develop and articulate what's in my head...at least that's how it is now. I plan on majoring in English and becoming a writer.

I took creative writing as a high school course (before the summer started, I'm on to college now! oh boy) and it was fantastic!!
I had so much freedom in the class to enjoy ideas without judgement! I wrote a mysterious story about an elderly man who died and at the end he showed up watching his burial as a young man. He was immortal, but you didn't know until the very end and I never came right out and stated it. I called it "The Ordinary Death of Donald Dailey" and actually had to research flower meanings and names from the time period in which my character was born. It was fun!!

I painstakingly plan out characters and plots over several months/years, and then never do anything else with them because I don't care about showing them to other people. I have a very 'watcher' mindset, so I craft stories for fun, but get little pleasure out of putting them to paper because by that point, I already know what happens and how.

Because I'm so devoted to fiction though, I very much want a career in the field, and so I've discovered that editing is right up my alley. I can put my voracious hunger for stories, my lit degree, and my attention to detail all to work, and participate in the creation of pieces that might become great.

I sure do!! I mainly write stories that have yuri themes. Everytime i watch anime or read a book I always wonder how the story would play out if the main character(s) were lesbian or gay. And then sometimes I just pull a theme out of the sky. It's crazy, i can just look outside, at lake michigan here in Chicago, and come up with a theme. Although I lack the basics in knowing how to properly develope plots, characters, etc. I still wirte. I hope to post one of my themes next week. And another one by the end of the summer. my only problem now is I take longer time to edit my ideas than i do to write them. In the near future, I plan to take a creative writing class at the community college.

I do write. I'm not particularly great at it, IMO, but I'll sometimes post a story on my blog (yeah, I'm one of those terrible people that do that... I should try to get published the real way ).

I enjoy characterization much more than "plotting" so for me the people are always the story even if the people in my story are getting attacked my winged gorillas or something strange like that.

Generally, my stories clock in at 30,000 words or slightly longer. I once tried my hand at writing an epic sci-fi novel, but I stopped at 90,000 words when I came to the realization that while the concepts were neat and definitely something worth pursuing.... the writing itself was immature. I just didn't the skill at the time to create an effective pace or language style for a story like that.

I've also only ever written one fan fiction story and that was a Trigun story.

I love to write in my free time and create characters I am currently working on a story at the moment that is a fantasy and have 50 pages so far. I tend to write fantasy or love stories. I also would like to get into writing fanfics.

Heyo! I personally love to write for the simple joy of it. I write all kinds of stories and can be pretty decent at it as long as my heart is in the right place. My style isn't all that original but it has depth and flow. In a way it can be compared to the style Edgar Allan Poe had. I love the dark stuff. Haha Poetry and Fables are my thing. I think our world could use some new fairy tales.

Just putting this out there. I am a young writer and I fancy myself to be a wordsmith of sorts. I would deeply appreciate requests for stories. Give me a concept, emotion, or something of that sort and I'd love to give it a shot. I want to get better at my craft and I think that sort of thing could really help me out. Don't be shy please ^_^

Yes. I love writing my own stories.

But I freak out about posting stuff online sometimes because people can just take your work and adapt it to theirs.

I've been writing stories for 7 years.

I've completed two novels (a third one is unedited) and they just...sit on my shelf. I have over 226 short and uncomplete stories that collect dust on my hard drive.

I write some stories, but most of the time they end up as either romance or horror-fiction. I wouldn't say I'm GOOD per se, but I'm not bad.
