If anyone is doing Camp NaNo in July, and is still struggling with inspiration, @IndiePenInk is tweeting #AbandonedIdeas all week leading up to camp next Sat. On the flip side, if you are flush with ideas you know you'll never get around to writing, and want to see them go to a good home, you can tweet them to @IndiePenInk with the same hashtag. good luck with Camp!
I started a project a while back that i'm picking up again. The plot is basically about a girl whose sister recently committed suicide, and now she's trying to deal with the aftermath. The format of the book is diary-style. I've never personally dealt with suicide, but I want to make this book as close to the truth as possible. I know this is a tough thing to ask, but if you ever dealt with this issue or have good online sources to refer, I would love it if you could message me at ... See More email@example.com .

# I'll read your story. Read mine, too.
I have a question. Can I have a Dragon in my science fiction/fantasy story? Its not really a dragon, per se, but its on an alien world far from Earth. I'm working on this story and it might have some kind of creature that's gonna be a flying kind and it breathes fire, but its not really a dragon. It's similar to a dragon. So...its a dragon, but not a dragon.
Make sense? I know, I'm confused too... -_-
Guess my question is, should I have a type of dragon in my science ... See More fiction story or really a type of flying alien creature that breathes fire in my story?
If I am writing an auto biography ... but with names changed what genres would I list it in?
How many people write because they want to become rich?
How many people write because they have a story to tell?
How many people write because the voices in their heads tell them what to say?
Here's another question: When you create your characters, do you tend to base them off of real people or do you tend to write characters you'd like seeing in your story? I tend to do a bit of both. One of my characters will always have a special place in my heart. They were inspired by my cousin, and he recently passed away in a car wreck right before I finished the book. To me, they'll always be a memory of him. Also though, I inspired one character off of what I wanted someone to be like when ... See More I was bullied. So, I do both of those things. You?
DESPERATELY NEED READERS PLEASE HELP.
Please everyone read my novel "keep your promises", write a review and share my story. I am trying to get as many people to read my novel as possible.
I am looking for many readers to give me feedback on my novel and read it, it's written for a competition and it would mean the world to me to do well in the competition. It's a mystery, romance novel one chapter has been published in the competition and if I get 100 readers to read my story ... See More then I will publish the rest.
I am curious, Where do your ideas come from?
I have a file with 13 books waiting to be written. I have a short blurb for each. My ideas can come from almost anywhere, or any time. I was wondering where your ideas come from. I hope I am not the only scatter brained thinker out there. ;)
There Kayresia, you aren't the only one that posts questions here. ;)
