Once again I've written another crappy story, I really don't know what to do! I used to be so enthusiastic about writing but now I'm losing interest in it. I wanted to do so much with it. I always…Continue

Does a person have to go to college to become a published and succesful writer?

I currently don't have the mindset to write a novel yet. I can't even come up with a decent short story. I've been trying to better my skill in writing on my own by reading books and stories posted on the internet. Some are self help guides on how to write a novel and other literary pieces. I've also been writing, journal entries mostly and some ideas for short novels.I was thinking of going back to college and taking a course in English hoping that by doing so would greatly improve my skill in…See More

Dear One

This is just a description of my latest work. I feel more confident about this story than any of my previous ones which is why I have yet to post one . All I have so far are ideas and I'm trying to get more ideas. Anyway, I'd appreciate if you would comment or give an opinion of what you think.

Marieh, if you post what you said there in your blog at the forum more people will see it probably. Give more detail on what you're struggling with too - is the plot you're having problems with, keeping the characters straight in your head etc. if you can share an example that would be good. You need to be as specific as you can about where you think the problem is. Welcome aboard! :)
