How many of you write?

Post  jumpingwhitebean on Sat Sep 05, 2009 10:09 pm

I do but I have stopped for some reason. Mostly because my ideas are running out.
Here are my favorites

I do tough lately I can't get into a groove (minus last nights poem that I posted). I write stories but try and script them at the same time. Doesn't work well. Perhaps I'll share one or 2 later.

Great job though on the stories, Dreams is kinda how I write usually

I write and I often fantasize about publishing, but I know Im not good enough. NOBODY reads my shit. Im not going to post it because people just go "Oh...looks long." Even though one of my best stories is only like 3 pages, people still wont read it...even after asking to see it, and its frustrating as shit. But I would like to put together a compilation of my short stories. But most of my shit is half-finished rants and musings on lonliness, unrequited love, boredom, frustration and disappointment with life. Also about how cruel and fucked up humanity is. So essentially, its just whiney emo shit and nobody wants that anyway.

Heres one you're not going to read....(Yes I am aware of the small spelling/grammar errors. I wrote this one night, while drunk and I never cleaned it up. I just wrote it in one shot, in one sitting. HOWEVER, this colloquial style with abrupt sentences and tangents is often how I write. Its very cerebral and stream of conscious.)

(its only like 3 pages, pasted into Word)

yep, I like writing in my free time... ussually I cant get past the 20 pages mark though. and I have huge problems keeping the pacing of a story going. But my concepts are ussually pretty good.

btw: for shit and giggles, try thinking of a original fantasy race. Kept me busy for a while

I have some fancy ideas and started recently writing them down,but I must be in the right mood for writing.I wrote some lines for a really good friend for her Guild Wars characters,but it's german,so I don't think you'd like to read it ^^

as soon as writing starts to feel like work, all creativity is thrown out of the window

Dude, are you kidding me? I am lucky now to get past a page when I sit down to write. I'm either suffering from some severe writer's block or there's just some mentality with me when I write that keeps me from putting my thoughts on paper (or computer, you know what I mean) and liking it. I'm picky I guess. Or maybe I just lack motivation.

I hate having to stretch things out. If you are finished at it is short I personally thing it needs to be left as is.

It depends on the story and where you're at in it. That and how you want to write it. I've read gold out of something written with few words. Then again, I've also read utter crap.

I've read SO many stories that are at least 5 pages too long. Many people don't get that just because you go into detail into something does not make it good.

Yeah, the ones that drag on. Been there too. Again, it all depends. And when I say I like to put in detail, I don't mean describe every fabric of what's going on, but just go a little beyond the surface. I was maybe a little misleading before.

Post  MENTOK the MINDTAKER on Tue Sep 08, 2009 4:45 am

I must confess that during "nerding" sessions (rpg's) I try scribing the events as if my character were writing a journal, reasons being:

-So handwriting doesn't become a dead art
-So my handwriting continues to be easy to read in times where I need to write by hand such as signing things
-So I have something to reference that may be significant to the next session


In fact, I'm just finishing writing about the session last week right now. I agree with most though that when it starts to feel like work rather than fun, motivation starts to fade... fast!!!

EDIT: Also have screenplays in the works, also suffers from above mentioned problem about motivation Suspect

I used to write an awful lot when I was younger, but I kinda dropped out of the habit. Still, I have a huge amount of ideas rattling round my head, so maybe someday I'll sit down and get into proper writing again.

So far my longest finished piece was about 170+ pages, round about. Good times.
