Riting as a Resolution? (1 Viewer)



Hello everyone. My name is Rob and I am not totally sure why I am here. I have never written anything before, besides the stuff I was forced to in high school and college, but I have always wanted to start. I am 24, in the military, and looking for a constructive use of my time in 2008. I don't have the slightest clue of even where to begin. Should I write fiction or non-fiction? Poetry or Prose? Novel or short-story? I am not sure and that is part of the reason why I am here, I am looking for guidance and help. Thank you and I hope everyone had a great christmas and new year's day.

Hello moreofhim; Writing is a great expression of our inner being, whether that be fear, love, or just a conviction or passion for something. I wish you all the best as you step out to plough new ground. :) CG


What are you passionate about?

I think it's easier to write about something you're passionate about, or just what you feel. Maybe it starts out as a short story and turns into a novel. Maybe you should just start writing and see where it goes.



yeah, I wrote one and then immediately made a writer's mistake....I didn't proofread. I tried to stop it and fix the mistakes but I realized afterwards that I guess I was not quick enough.
