I have always read a lot - still do - and I've always come up...wanting. Wanting something more, something else. The books I wanted to read the most just weren't there. So I started writing.
At first, it was poetry. Something I've come back to at several times in my life. Then came the fan fiction. But I found that the original characters I created were much more interesting to write about, because they were...mine. Parts of me, even.
When it comes to fiction, I'm a pantser who loves to see where the characters - and the story - take me.
There are, however, several reasons why we feel we have to write. Some have this urge inside them, stories and characters banging on your skull and internal organs to be let out. Others feel pressed to make money. Many of us, I think, have a bit of both.

Can't remember the title of a book you read a while back? Come search our archives and shelves, and if we haven't already solved for your book, post aCan't remember the title of a book you read a while back? Come search our archives and shelves, and if we haven't already solved for your book, post a description on our message board and we can try to help each other out.
***Note: Provide a brief description of your book in the subject line, as opposed to something vague like "Help!" or "Can't Remember This Book" and you will be more likely to catch the eye of someone familiar with your book.
If you're helping someone find a book, please give suggestions only when you recognize the book or when you have very good reason to believe it's the book being requested. Thank you.
If you've requested help finding a book, please remember to return and check if another member has found it. Check both the unsolved and possibly solved folders. If you've found your book, please change the topic title and the thread's folder to the proper solved folder. Also, please add the found book to the group's bookshelves or request that they be added. Please post a post saying the book was found; you can ask for help with doing the above housekeeping tasks in that message.
If you're searching for more than one book, start a new thread for each book.
I thought it would be cool to start shelving all the forgotten books we've helped each other find. Feel free to add on or change the edition/cover of the book you were reunited with.
