    I try to write. MY friends say i'm pretty good but every time I really get into the story something takes me away from it and then I can't get back into it. I've been working on a special story of mine for 1-2 years. All I have is the ending and the beginning. I found a site where you can put ur writing up. Here's the beginning of my story. Its a Fantasy/Romance. Sort of

    I write.
    I started writing fanfictions a couple of years back and now have 13 finished pieces. Im also doing a play writing course atm at uni since the short fiction class got cancelled.
    I hope to be published one day... but for now I'm writing several pieces and loving it.
    I have a small fanbase who are awesome and keep me motivated :)

    When you write a book can it have weak points? I mean... let's say you write the book and get it pretty much done but there are a few points where your verbage gets a little week... do the publishers send it off to editors that reword things? How does that portion work? I have days where I can fly through paragraphs and really feel good about what I write and then I have days where I'll spend an hour on half a page or trying to figure out how to get through a transition.... and it's... week. I'm at that point right now. I want to transition from "her" point of view to "his" and can't quite get there....stuck now...

    Do you have a friend who can read it for you without a biased opinion? I have someone who reads my stuff before I post it online... I tend to read my stuff and if I have a problem with how I've worded something I turn to my friends to bounce ideas off and yet expect honesty. I have that problem too.. writers block sucks! If you really need a hand, and you can't find someone to read it... give me an email badwithfragilethings@hotmail.com and I'll read it over. I know how important it is to get things right!

    People who write and publish stories online typically use a 'beta' or 'beta reader'; someone who performs some of the functions of an editor.

    Professionally, I'm not sure how it works, but to get a publisher's interest I believe the general advice is to only send the first one or two chapters, not a full manuscript. Editors are there to help you, but no editor is going to be as good as going over your writing, revising and redrafting as you go. Don't forget that you don't always have to write in order, and revisiting after some time apart from one part of your text will give you a fresh eye and new ideas :)

    I LOVE writing. I've been writing stories ever since I was little. Goes hand in hand with me being a bookworm. LOL. My friend and I are writing a fantasy trilogy, and I have some projects of my own. I've always wanted to be a published writer!

    I have my story posted here under stories and poems section but I feel like I need some constructive critism so I know I"m on the right track. I kind of want to get one of those tiny tape recorders so I can verbally write it on my way to and from work everyday... I can really come up w/ great ideas when I don't have my computer but then when I sit down to write... blah.... gone.... transitions are the hardest for me....

    Always keep a little notebook on you, Farmpony :) Write down everything you think of, whether it's connected to your story or not - you never know when you might use it!

    I like to write. At first I wrote the story ''The Golden Corn''. It was a few years ago. Now I write the story ''The Riders of Light''. It is mystic detective.
