what's everyone working on lately? i know we have some writers in here.
Maybe they're working on their mspaint contest submissions.
oh man. oh shit. that's... probably not true.
oh man. for serious? no TOL writing crew?
I pretend to be a writer... but I'm not TOL crew.
but you could be
Can I be in the crew?
i dunno if there is a crew. maybe there should be.
shit... maybe they were working on their mspaint thread pics after all. then again... no movement in that thread either. hey way to fucking suck joe. move that shit to the main forum for a day or two and get some submissions.
we need more writer's threads.
so what's everyone been workin on lately? i've been 'busy' with a few different projects... a novel(la), revising a shooting script for a 20 minute short called 'Live Nude Girls: In Space' and three different comics. my artist is a little on the slow side so we're planning on doing a limited run of 4 for each. motivating women is a pain in the ass.
I was working on a short story a few weeks ago, but work and all that got in the way. I wanted to be a published writer so badly when I was younger.
i haven't really had a desire to become a published writer. i just write for relaxation and personal enjoyment more than anything. at one point i'd wanted to get into writing blockbusters for hollywood, but i slapped myself for that and now just work on scripts for friend's films and my own short flicks. i've been working on a zombie script for a few years but i'll never finish it.
I wanted to create the greatest fantasy novel since Lotr
it's not that hard really. what you need is a good group of RPGers, a good voice recorder and some AD&D core rule books... a lot of r.a. salvatore's inspiration came from his gaming group and his characters are some of the most entertaining. it's a good way to get a ball rolling. write a module, have your friends play it, record and use the games as your 'notebook'.
I thought about that.
Then I start playing scenarios out in my head.
I have like 20 ideas for fantasy stories that tie in to eachother.
Not including my epic space operas whilst ripping off robotech.
write it all. move across genres like you would walk from room to room. who gives a fuck. just write.
it's totally easy to say that though... it's another thing to actually do it.
I have been writing something for about a year now. Not even my best friend knows I am working on something. My wife keeps pushing me to finish it, but shit gets hard after a while. Eventually, I'll get it done.
Oh fuck. Am I being called out? I start by writing whatever is on my mind, but once I get to a certain point I just focus on one. It is what works for me
Phone emote fail
Really? Good luck, people who can write blow me away. I can write papers and stuff, but no fiction.
It is not as easy as people think all the time. Give it a go sometime and you could probably change your mind. Get an idea, go with it and edit it when a new idea for it pops into your head.
