Day 189

Story Telling

For years I've wanted to write a book, the subjects changed over the years but the feeling of writing excites me.

I used to write a lot of poems in my younger days, first inspired by Eminem, I know he's not everyone's cup of tea but I found his use of word play, rhyming to be thrilling. I used to try and write raps, which is laughable now but some were not so bad.

I really got into writing poems when I got with my first proper girlfriend, I'd send her love letters and poems in the post. Then when we split up I took to writing poems as a release for my heart break.

I have lots of ideas on subjects for writing a book but I know I'll probably never do it but the urge is still there and now I've come across a website that allows you to write and publish short stories online which is perfect for me, I can write these ideas out and just get them out of my head.

The reason I tell you pen pals is no one knows me and I fear ridicule from people I know.

    You should go for it, I love writing as its my form of release, however i don't think i would be creative enough to write a book. Focus on yourself and if its something you enjoy, the people you know should not only respect that but encourage it. x

    I'm writing a book started few years ago as a creative thinking competition with my 2 lads of course they lost interest in theirs after a paragraph. I'm really getting into it and it may take hours to even do a paragraph but it's coming on. Just get the basic plan together and get cracking ! I love getting lost in the world I've created !

    Oh by the way you don't need to tell people it's got nothing to do with them. Some of my characters are work colleges ! Ha

    just_me we are influenced by the people and things around us so its only natural that some of your characters are based on work colleagues. I have a few dark fiction stories going on at the moment that I'd like to write, I will start tomorrow night when I have peace to think and structure the stories. Enjoy your writing.

    Have courage Escape, don't let fear rule. If you are worried about ridicule use a pen name.

    Go for it!!
