Writers? - June 22nd 2016, 09:11 PM

Writing has been my first love for a very long time, and I realized I have never properly discussed it with anybody with the same passion. It's definitely my passion which I hope to turn into a first or second career.

Is there anyone willing to share ideas and discuss projects (whether professional or something on your own) they're stuck with? I'm working on a fantasy (with spiritual themes) novel, slowly but it's going; I'm trying to get myself to paint on the side and considering crafts again. I have other ideas too but so unsure where to go with them. Recently I've learned that networking and giving-receiving feedback is healthy for your projects while giving your writing more life. When I learned that, I thought writing groups must be fun and awesome.

I am not even close to done and sometimes it feels not-so-motivating doing it all by yourself. Any suggestions? Anybody who feels the same? I would be happy to discuss!

Hey, I like writing but struggle with major writer's block. The only advice I can really give is expose yourself to as much as possible and don't sit down with the sole purpose of writing. Wait until the muse strikes, and then write; otherwise, you'll never come up with anyone you feel is decent.

I think joining writing groups is a great way to get in touch and bounce ideas around with other writers. Maybe it'd be a good idea to bring your writing issues up with them? Maybe they have better advice than I do. I've only ever really written fan-fiction.

I enjoy writing a lot and I have that problem with motivation. I recently went to a talk given by a children's author who came to my college and gave a talk. She's involved in a few writing groups with one of her kids (He's about 20ish) and she talked very highly of it. I would love to get involved with one, but I don't really know where to start to find a group.

Anybody interested in creating a small active group of (aspiring) writers where we would exchange and comment on each other's work/ideas? We could communicate via email or skype like this. I'd be definitely up for it, if anybody sees this.

I write pretty often. I keep a journal that I try to do something in every day, and I'm in a journalism class at school, which is super different from creative writing but still really fun. I'd totally be down for a writing group!

A friend who had now published an anthology of poetry had created a writing group a while back which I've joined and met other aspiring writers. I found it helpful. I've also experimented with different writing groups and found some more helpful more than others.

It would be fun to do to writing projects and do a writing group thing together! I'm a short stories writer and a poet. I'm also working towards to wanting to do storyboarding as a career. I don't have any projects or any works in progress, but I would love to help out with anything you are writing!

I try to write regularly, though I'm often to busy to do so. I write a lot of fanfiction, though I also work on some original stories. I either wirte short stories (like 3 pages) or really really long ones with 300 or more pages. There's nearly nothing in between^^
I'd totaly be up for a wrting group, because those are always a lot of fun, though I'm not sure if I'll be activ often, since I'm so busy^^


It's ok to give in to an urge or make a mistake. You are only human and we all have our flaws. We all have our weak moments and we all make mistakes. Thats what makes us human.
Thats what makes us unique and beautiful

Courage isn't always a loud roar. Sometimes it is a quiet whisper at the end of a day saying: Tomorrow I will try it again!
