Well, I've kind of been inspired by cathy cassidy. She describes her characters amazingly, she adds a hint of romance , and then a whole lot of drama filled action to spice things up.

Most of the time my ideas com from dreams I have. I had a dream about an Invisible Princess, but that idea was scrapped.

I love thinking up fantasy, romance and even comedy story's. Even if I suck at it I love it. Strangely enough the only genre I am good at is mystery and horror. Which I totally hate :(


I also get my ideas from dreams

I'm totally a writer. I have a story idea all planned, and it's perfect. The downside is, that I don't know if I can write all of it. I can't post it here since I don't want anybody taking it. :P

Eh, I've only got the first two pages done of the story, and it really isn't much if I think about it.

Whenever Im doing normal things that I do everyday, I always have ideas of a good story idea in my head, but I never have the time to write it down or even start my own book. xD

My friends also tell me that I should start making my own manga coz they think my art is apparently awesome. I tried making one once..... Didn't turn out so well... :T I think Im just gonna wait till I have those high tech software thingies that you could make manga on than just starting on paper. :P

Is it natural that evertime I change the plot of my novel, it just get darker and darker?

I would like to be a writer, but I'm discouraged by all the people who think they can write but don't have one original idea floating about in their heads.

I definitely want to be a writer. I'm going to write Mystery Novels (those are my answers to the Poll). Well maybe not exactly just mystery, but fantasy and mystery mixed. I want to write like Lauren St John, except a bit QUICKER! Any other Lauren St John fans, you know what I'm talking about!

I wrote a short story about bushfires for school a couple weeks ago.

My teacher think I'm ridiculously talented - even went to Mum's work and got served by her in Coles and talked to her about it. He said he hoped I got a career involving writing... :/

All that was awkward. I can't write for anything! He gave me a student of the week at assembly for it even. I HAVEN'T HAD ONE OF THEM FOR YEARS. He keeps saying its the best short story he had ever read.

Walking up to assembly listening to the teacher say 'very impressive' and 'good job' was awkward.

I am a horrible writer. He keeps making me sound like a legend or something.

ANNOYING. AND I SUCK.

Join the club. And, you don't suck, you're just average. You should read a lot and absorb all the different styles of writing until you create your own unique style. Helped me a lot, love reading.
