It's ironic, I know. I'm trying not to edit it with grammar/language in mind...that just wouldn't seem right since he was the one who really helped me the most with that...

Still writing short stories, still not writing as much as I should be. My old creative writing teacher gave me the first draft of his novel, I'm to read it and critique. HMMMMMMMMM.

I've been working on getting a story published, I've sent it to at least 20 magazines so far, and I'll send it to more today. Hopefully something good will come out of it.

Yeah, I know what you mean. You just have to make yourself write everyday. Like you're brushing your teeth.

I'm writing a novel. :D

AHHHHHHHHHH! Ever since I moved into my apartment, I've been able to write only sparingly. I seriously went on a month break without writing a thing. Then I had to kind of force a story out of me, which wasn't very good. I think I'm back on track now, I'm going to school and in the mornings I write ...

Two weeks ago I wrote a story every day, this week I haven't written anything. I realized that I have a creative pool of writingness that I...

My two cents on the book; I read it probably three times through and listened to the audio CDs probably ten times. Loved it loved it loved it. My first copy was a used copy that my friend got me after HE got it at a book fair. It had so many highlighted and underlined passages, it was starting to lo...

Thanks.

I'm currently working on a longer story right now, and I'm hoping to also polish up one of my shorter pieces and get it published. Hoping to, being the key word. This next week, and the following week, they just might kill me. :shock:

I read "An Intimate Conversation With Myself" tonight for my writing group's book party. There were a lot of people there and they liked it. I got it on video, I might put it up on youtube or something and then put a link on here.

Started writing a story for creative writing, it's supposed to be a "crime" (although he said that this genre assignment was very ambiguous) story, and it's kind of like a stalker story. A dark comedy I think.

Thanks. There are seriously over thirty or so authors in this; you should all check it out. I'm not just trying to sell it (I don't make any money anyway, I even bought two copies), I'm sincerely telling you that there is some really great writing in here.

Wrote a story today. I've been getting inspired a lot by music, so you could say the soundtrack to my newest story, "Car Crashes", was the album Avec Laudenum by Stars Of The Lid. Very mellow soundscapes there. Worth checking out for writing music if that's anyone's game. Also, I picked up Rick Mood...

I was in Borders the other day, and I was flipping through you're book (still not enough mula to spare), and a lady that worked there came up to me and remarked how good your book was and how well it was doing for them. So bravo! I started to say something about how I kind of knew you from a writing...

I picked up my first Vonnegut book today; Hocus Pocus. I am approximatly a page and a half through it as of now, and the whole napalm strike on Jesus made me laugh very hard. Thought you all should know. :-P

Ha, dude, it's just a misunderstanding. Feel free to practice on my other stuff too! Ha. I really did like the rewrite though. Mlou is right, bounce away man!

By the way, I don't think there is such a thing as a poor poet (don't hit me). Just a misunderstood one.

I totally didn't mean to conjugate that up there. Whew. :roll: But, anyway, I guess I've been on a poetry binge lately. And I guess some of you guys are liking it. That's good. Hopefully there will be more to come. Hopefully. We have a poetry reading in my creative writing class tomorrow. So, those ...
