Working toward a certain goal, but find yourself in need of some encouragement? Post it here, or simply support others to help them reach their goals.

Mpiggy Same here, Madeline! Have you got an idea for a novel yet? Because if you do, I'm kind of in the same boat as you. I've got an awesome idea I want to write, but I can't seem to start it. It doesn't help that I have no time, although I read a quote once that said, "If you don't write when you don't have time, you won't write when you do." I really kind of think that's true and really applying to me right now.
This is my personal ideas about writing a novel. I think it seems taunting, writing such a big story, especially if you're only used to writing short stories. I think thinking about how many chapters there is makes it harder as well. But I think, if you think of each chapter as one short story, it makes it easier.

I too am start to write mainly short stories and poetry right now. Then I plan on move towards a book and a full length play. One idea that may help you guys is to read some books on creative writing or how to motivate yourselves to practice writing. Or you could try a class in creative writing. And all ways keep a notepad with you, you never know when a lightbulb may go off:)

Mpiggy Yeah! I have two writing books. I haven't really looked at them yet, but I will when I get the time! And I always have a pen with me, and most of the times a notebook as well. If not, I'll just use a napkin :P

Kennedy | 236 comments I'm kind of writing a book right now, i got off to a really good start but now i haven't written anything in about two weeks I guess i just got stuck but i'm going to start again soon i hope. I feel like it's terrible though. I'm planning on posting some of it on Goodreads when i get a chance and maybe get some feedback.
