    How would it be your story then?

    That isn't help, that's getting other people to do your thinking for you.

    How will that improve YOUR writing?

    This is a writing forum, not a text-talk forum. I think if you want people to take you seriously, you might be wiser to avoid using that ridiculous excuse for the English language.

    As for your two questions:

    (1) Just sit behind a keyboard and start typing. Doesn't matter if it's crap. Just write. You didn't think there was some magic cure for writer's block, did you?

    (2) No one in their right mind is going to help you write your novel. They might help you edit it, but not write it.

    Well, not all people. I mean, I never take anyone seriously, no matter what they do. It's the Irish way. :p

    Tusk tusk and you'd think some people are wiser!

    It's not like havinfun asked anyone to actually write for him!!

    Writers block can happen to almost anyone starting from you to J.K. Rowling :p so you need to try some tricks to fight blocks and figure out what works for you :)

    It won't be long, so good luck and i'd be looking forward to seeing you work here.

    Keep it up ;)

    Yeah, just start writing and have fun. As your work progresses you'll get other idea and concepts to enhance your tale and make it more to your liking. It is your story.

    I personally have been working on the same idea (and others) for a decade or two. The more you write, the more you can mesh out YOUR story and characters.

    If writing is something you enjoy, stick with it.

    Good luck.

    Give yourself permission to write badly. If you're not concerned about the quality of what goes on the paper, you'll feel less hesitant.
