It's all in my head, but I'm having problems putting it onto paper, unfortunately. Any tips? I have the 1st book done, but it's rather short. Book 2 will be longer, but I don't want to write TOO much into it.

Basically jot everything that comes to your mind first, don't worry about errors. after the entire story is written out, then go back and edit as you see fit. :)

I like to go for the "story vomit" then clean it up way of doing things. Because If i try to piece it together first...nothing gets finished.

I have to stop being such a perfectionist sigh.

If satire is considered a genre, then yes. Tragedy and a slice of life are also one of the genres I mostly write.

I hate myself for just letting it stay in my head instead of writing it down on a notebook or a notepad/wordpad in PC or a softcopy document....my gamer impulse is greater than my writer impulse. :P

I don't worry about it rotting in my head, the basic concept is still there, what rots are the bits and pieces that turn it into a complete story. Either there's not enough time, not enough of me or just me being stupid for not allotting time for it.

But this is a really good tip.

I've written novels for the last 16 years. I've also got an eBook published called Teach Yourself Game Programming for Android and Windows which is selling reasonably well on Amazon Kindle.

I'm aiming to get my first children fiction novel published late this year or early next.

Writing and Manga go hand in hand, the only difference is you express images with a few words. Rather than images with words.

well, I'm so happy that there are people that you guys that appreciate others people works... by the way, I already finished my first book.. it's about online game.. here's some description..

The world finally enters the new era of gaming. With Syder (synapse reader) implemented on the system, Rebirth Online is be the first VRMMORPG (Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) in the world. The pre-order sales have gone through 500,000 units and reach 1,000,000 subscribers after three months. Hikaru, login to the game for the first time, but it seems that it exceeded his expectation.
here's the download link: http://www.mediafire.com/download/3d1ya6xlq42l3wu/Rebirth_Online_-_A_New_Beginning.pdf

Yep, infact i write an entire series with side stories and everything. It think it's just moving with a goal in mind and set everything out as books. Probably why i have been able to do it and work towards completing it. So far i have around 22 chapters in the main story, and probably 8 side stories that are connected to that one main story....Thankfully i told myself to chill on the side stories to focus on my main one. So much to do haha

That is the single greatest idea ever! Sir, I will donate my entire $37 estate to help you achieve that dream.
You know what else? sliced bread!. BAM! we're on a roll today



Ok. that was fun. Say!, if a guy was to write a short story, based off the 3rd most messed up dreams he's ever had, where would he post it for people to read? Obviously not on the forum, it's not really relevant to anime, but all too relevant to writing (well.. duh)

Thanks for the support I only have one villain so far. And I want her too be extremely realistic with her misdeeds and she is fantastic (fantasy-like) character because she is a book in human form- sounds silly ik but like a book her powers isn't just force,but its her knowledge between the pages
