Colleen thanks for all the advice. I have had the copy of "No Plot, No Problem" for a while now but with all the homework I've not really delved into it....and can not wait till I do! Congrats on achieving your novel! I will check out those cites asap!
Kid, do it....use what's going on around you with visitors as inspiration!! LOL!
Thanks guys for breathing life into this group. I understand there is another writer's group here which is fantastic, but this is more for us who may need some encouraging during dry spells and "Writer's Block". Sometimes my creative juices flow and other times it is dammed. This group is meant to encourage, give advice, and not only advice to help during down times but to help with publishing and the like. So feel free to comment and start discussions and add anything you think will help!

This is cool too: http://writeordie.drwicked.com/ It's a software that harasses you into doing speedy writing drills. I was so impressed I went ahead and splurged the $10 for the desktop edition. ;-D

Yeah I did, thanks! It's definitely crap, but it's over 50,000 words so yeah! I finished! and in the process I found out that's it's not as hard as I thought to pump out about 1500 to 2000 words a day and hopefully over time I can make them more than just brain drain. Definitely get yourself a copy of the book on the nanowrimo site "No Plot, No Problem" It's written by the guy who created National Novel Writing Month and is sort of like having a support group at your fingertips. I'm going to download one of the free formatting softwares from the Script Frenzy site that they suggest and just peeking into a few books on technique like "Story" by Robert McKee and "Save the Cat!" by Blake Snyder. I think, for my first attempt, I'm going to try to adapt a novel I like instead of trying to invent the story and learn how to write a screenplay all from scratch but.. we'll see. I may change my mind about 100 more times or so before it's all over... ;->

I'm still basking in the glow of my "NaNoWriMo" (www.nanowrimo.org) victory from November and now I'm trying to gear up for ScriptFrenzy (www.scriptfrenzy.org) in April. I've never written a script before and have no idea how to write one... this should be interesting....

I having my 30 volume Nibs Misadventure Series put on CD's with from five to seven books per CD to be sold in bookstores just before Christmas and over the net. As you or might not know "Nibs goes to London" was on the best seller list two years in a row as everyone has come to love Nibs the world's richest cat whereas he goes off on adventures around the world, in time and even outer-space and 8 miles beneath the sea only to get into trouble and often times gets captured by drug lords, modern day pirates, terrorists, head-hunters, hillbillies, assorted crooks, despots, art thieves and even cave men as he travels back in time and to the city beneath the sea and by Martians under the planet Mars. In Volume Four Nibs discovers the island of Boodocky and becomes its king whereas he takes off in around the world adventures. Its a combination James Bond, Indiana Jones, Abbot & Costello, the Marx Brothers and science fiction all rolled into one.

I am a well known writer having sold two best sellers and I am looking to join an atheist writers group.

Hi guys! What is everyone working on of late? Me? Just poems and trying to write a really awesome twisted vamp tale. Not the glittering, spider monkey type; but the bloody, sex-driven, underground type. Happy Spring to you all....
