I'm an avid writer. Since middle school, I always like to write. I used to write plays and song lyrics. My first play was "Midsummer Chronicles", which didn't work out. Then in my high school years, I started writing movies. My first two movies are "Sympathy for the Devil" (which script production I cancelled, due to my Christian upbringing) and The Elemental Files (because I love fairies and magic). Both of them are successful, to little notice. I took a hiatus from writing to focus on school. I was desperate to to be a writer. Now, I went back to script-writing and moved up to novels. My first novel, "Dark Drama", was good. My second novel, "The Twisted Lives of Two Wannabes", was even better. I loved writing because it was a great way to express myself. How about you?

I like to write, and have always wanted to become a writer, but who would ever read something written by me?

I've got a good mate reading the first chapter of my novel at this time.
(Hope he likes it.)

Always been someone that has loved to write. I finally got enough nerve to start writing a novel. I just started writing the 16th chapter.

I consider myself a writer, though I've yet to get published. I must admit, I'm my own worst critic, and so I shelve way too many things I've put my heart into. My wife and friends say they really like my stuff, but I find way too much to nitpick about. Currently, I'm working on various short horror stories I've been jumping between.
Yes, I know, I'm very scatterbrained when it comes to my writing.

I love making up stories and characters in my mind.. and I want to write a trilogy sometimes.. however I don't really like the process of writing. It's exhausting for me, and I always feel like the stories lose something when I try to put them on paper.

I feel that too, at the time but later on I go back and read what I wrote and think "that's pretty good'.
