    Bitten by the Writers Bug

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by shards, Feb 29, 2016.

    Hi there,
    I found this site in my search for everything literary and its preparation. I have perused a few projects in the workshop and am intimidated yet excited as well having started and stopped writing across a few jonrahs over the last 10 years. The critic is reasonably fair and I'm excited and inspired to keep at my current project having found this site.
    :)

    There's no need to be intimidated. I'm 17 and I'm not intimidated. And I hope you do enjoy this site, and the potential benefits of it. :agreed::agreed::agreed:

    I have a few things going lol. I started a sci fi years ago and keep going back to it and then shelving it. Sci fi is hard when you read through it can become a little cheesy and i keep getting this picture of a 70's style of book cover in my head. I started a rom com about 2 years ago and actually said the words out loud "I am going to write a book" but only to a couple of very close friends. I don't move in literary circles so it's not something you just pipe up about. When my daughter mentioned my book in front of my husband he looked at me like I had grown two heads. I have kept my writing very private. Maybe when i finish my rom com i will show him but for now i will keep it to myself its hard enough to motivate and encourage yourself to keep going without someone close treating writing as a laughing point.
    I also have started penning some childrens stories, I was watching a demo on book binding and thought how nice it would be to have a go at but what exactly could I bind so i thought it would be nice to write some stories about my grand kids and then bind them as gifts when their a little older. :)

    Hey shards, nice to meet you. That sounds like an awesome idea (the self bound gift books)
    Few people "get" why people want to write...personally I can't get why they wouldn't...but regardless your in good company here...or bizarre company...and hey sometimes that's a heck of a lot better.
