So I guess I found a new hobby! I've always wanted to do photography, but since I don't have the money to spend on a nice camera I've been dying for something to fill in my creative gap. I even thought about taking up sewing, but who am I kidding? I'm not that crafty. Okay, you'll probably think I'm weird...I found out that I love creative writing! (you're probably thinking, "so what?")
I've started to seriously think about writing novels just so I can feel some sort of personal pride =). I've been writing for the last two weeks obsessing over possible stories. I've come upon two stories that I think are interesting enough to write about.
Of course I'm a loooooooooooooong ways away from actually seeing a novel come to fruition, but I find that creative writing makes me happy =). Even though I've already put creative writing as one of my 101 things to do I wasn't really inspired to start. I can't say exactly what made me want to start writing. Alls I know is I can't stop!
Speaking of writing, my friend Alexis is an awesome freelance writer and she has a blog called Depressions and Confessions. Check it out here. She would love for you to stop by and "have a few laughs at her expense".
If any of you would be willing to, would you like to read my writing and help me to improve my storyline, characters, etc? And don't worry, I'm not concerned with grammar or punctuation. Not at this point anyway =). This will be extremely uncomfortable for me, but I know that by having some one critique my writing would only help me get better. Don't worry, I won't bog you down with pages and pages. It'll be just the first 20-30 pages. If you want to read more by all means let me know!
But I won't get ahead of myself because I haven't started the actual writing. I'm still in the research and outline phase. Oh, and if you are interested, could you tell me what your favorite fictional genres are? Thanks gals.
