    Quarantine Writing?

    What's everybody working on in quarantine? For me, it's business as usual. I'm a self-employed writing mentor/self-published author (it's not as cool or successful as it sounds) so I've been chilling at home for months already lol. I'm working on the third entry in my dystopian scifi about a...

    Anyone Else a Self-Appointed, Full Time Writer?

    When I was really honest with myself, writing was always what I waned to do. Not as a hobby or side-gig. I wanted it all the time, and I had the passion to do it. So... I quit my day job to see if having time would really remedy the roadblocks to breaking out. The result... well... I'm much...

    I'm also a YouTube Creator! (Focus in Writing)

    Hey all! I've read about some awesome hobbies in this big thread and just thought I'd share one of my own. When I'm not ghostwriting or working on my own novels, I'm creating videos for other writers! I joined YouTube a few months ago and I've got a wee bit of traction (almost 80 subscribers...

    The Writing Playlist Thread

    I figured the forum could use an all-in-one playlists-for-writing thread. I've seen a lot of separate threads revolving around music through the years here, and really wanted one good spot people could go to to find something that might suit their WIP. It's been my experience that a good...

    A Better Way to Write

    The things I write do not sound good, myself not doing what I should, to set down roughly all my thoughts and render then their roughness naught. Intending lofty, cadenced words to be in all my writing heard, but thoughts of mine not fully framed, the words I write I cannot tame. And thus do...

    Under Construction (Short Story)

    Hey guys! Thank you for clicking and reading my latest short story. Who knows how those business men did it. They floated in to my mansion every morning (well, it wasn’t actually my mansion, but I’ll get there in a minute) as if they didn’t have to move their legs, as if they were carried...

    So I bit the bullet...

    About two months ago, I lost a notebook with a story I was currently working on. I am usually an old school type of writer, I prefer paper and pen to a computer. Needless to say I have looked in every nook and cranny in my apartment and yesterday I declared that notebook gone and never to...

    [Rough draft, 655 words] Born Last

    I need critique over my writing. If I was born 50 years earlier, would I’ve been happy? Would running around outside, screaming a bunch of cuss words, made me have a childhood? All that surrounds me is either falling apart or rusting to nothing, becoming dust against the window panes that...

    How to improve grammar skills - fast!

    " Why is there Writer's Block? No-one ever talks about having "Plumber's Block"

    What do you think? Is writing just a job like any other or is it really a case of waiting for the "muse"? I'm sure this topic has been brought up before, and I am sorry in advance if it has been. I think a lot of "Writer's Block" can be alleviated by just showing up at the page day after day...

    The Writer's Demise.

    No phrase applies better to the art of writing than it being a “blessing and a curse.” Writers, on one hand, are very blessed to be able to do what they do; and if they can do it well, that just adds to it. The blessing comes in because with most writers, it’s all they’ve ever had. Those loners...

    What is accepted and what is not accepted in an article or essay?

    Hi, I've been reading a lot of articles and essays on internet, most of them humorous. And I can't distinguishing what I'm able to write on an article and what not, because I've been reading articles that relates a short story, articles that exposed a fictional opinion about a subject. What...

    More Time For Writing!

    So as it turns out, I'll be losing my full-time job at the end of this week. For many, this can be a rather trying time. For me, it means I no longer have to wake up every morning and drag myself to a place of work I absolutely detest. But not only that, it also means I will have so much free...

    Why don't I read about Dwarves more often in Fantasy?

    I had a brilliant idea for a novel, or series, but the problem lies in that my main character is a dwarf. Now, before I get comments about being prejudiced, I literally mean dwarf of the fantasy variety. So how come I don't read more "dwarf" oriented content? I know part of the process is...
