    I AM!

    I'm doing up a story right now as we speak, called "Happily Ever After." It's a fantasy fairytale-ish kind of story, and even though the characters aren't original, the plot is semi-original. I'm basically doing a retelling of all the Fairytales we know (Like Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, etc...), but each tale has a twist to it...a different spin, if you will. It's actually a rather dark story, but it's very suspenseful, will keep you guessing till the end.

    Anyone else has a story they're writing currently right now?

    I write almost every day, but not fiction. You're writing one story or a series?

    I'm writing one story. So far, I'm only on Chapter 5, but it's gettin' good. You can read it on my Facebook, since it's open to anyone. Once you go to my Facebook, click on my "Notes" Section and go to Chapter 1 if you want to read it. If not, no skin off my back:

    Criticism is good too!

    I do! I write gay romance/erotica once in a while, but mostly focus on high crossover high fantasy/science fiction.

    Very good!

    I'm on Chapter 7 of my second book, my first fiction novel. Writing is truly hard work. I like photography better. icon_wink.gif

    I write non-fiction: articles, essays, reports, co-edited a book, and currently I am about 600 pages into a three-volume book I am writing... taken me over a year thus far, and looks to be another one to go. oy. it's a hobby, and a job, and... pretty much the biggest chunk of my life. making a living off of writing, however, is... difficult, but im surviving.

    Sounds like a good idea. I'd change the title though it's pretty cliched.
    I do a lot of screenwriting, and a lot of journal writing. I gave up on the novel formula. Mostly I write reality bending David Lynch type stories, using having to do with the fantastic or with sci-fi elements.
    I also wrote a pretty epic 180 page Lord of the Rings scale sci-fi actioner a long time ago, but I'd have to back and revise it as it has a lot of problems.
    Anyway, good luck!

    It's been a long time since I've written anything...
    I have many notebooks filled with short stories and poetry and essays.
    Might be a good idea to revisite them and rekindle some ideas.

    I also write some for grown-ups.

    I used to try to my hand at fiction, especially during middle school, but I quit early on in high school. Now that I finished college, I thought of picking back up fictional writing, maybe not as a sole career but as a hobby on the side. I'd just have to jump back in and try it. Aside from that, I always loved response writing.
