Yes. And it's going to kill me because one of the plotlines won't develop and one character is whiny and another is just silly and the other two are just coked up and AAGH. *cries*

I'm past 15, 000 words, so I'm hoping that counts as yes and not maybe. Half is up in Advanced Critiques.

I hope that my story idea will someday turn into a novel.

It's about:

a female hero

Well thats the general idea of it. I'm only on the first chapter but I have almost the whole book mapped out in my head. Key word almost.

I know the beginning, the end, and a few parts in between. I just need to add the details.

I have the prologue and chapter one up in the Fantasy Forum. Its call Coven Born

Yes, I am writing a novel. It's a modern retelling of "Beauty and the Beast", without an actual beast. Is that wrong?

I'm in the middle of the third chapter now. Yay me! However, as Saint so truly says:

Novelling: The Most Efficient Form of Self-Torture.

I'm going to go put myself on the rack now. *waddles off to go write some more*

I am reminded of the babe by you.

Well, essentially there's three. There's the one I've been developing for years in my head, that I've put on hold. Then there's another that wasn't fully developed and lacked research which I've mostly given up on. Finally there's the most recent one, which I'm crazy about. However, it's not really fully developed. The research is fun though, and writing it is fun, at least for now. Then of course, NaNoWriMo's coming up, and I have no idea if I could bear to work on something else. Ah well, we'll see.

And don't worry, Saint! Either it will get better or it'll get worse and then you'll know what to do with it. If that makes any sense...

Would love help on this.

I am, but it's more of an "If I get extra time, I'll write a few hundred words" thing. I'll probably turn it into my NaNo if I don't think up another idea.

It's a historical-fantasy. The first chapter is posted on here entitled Finding the Wandering City. It takes place in modern times. Emma discovers an ancient book which is one of a series that can take her back to the ancient times. Two strange boys explain to her that she must save the time of the Ancients by defeating the Thieves. The only way to do this, though, is to visit each major ancient city and take their dearest treasure before the thieves find it. Joining all of the treasures creates one unstoppable force.

That's a very blah summary, but I'm kind of excited for this novel. I just gotta get working on it, and hopefully NaNo will help me with that if I decide to use this. If all turns out well, I'll turn this into a series of books, but we'll have to wait and see. :wink:

I am writing a book called "Fudge Castle". Right now I'm outlining it, but it's about a land of chocolate. I'll post the first chapter as soon as it is written down.

It's complicated to explain unless you're actually me. But I'll try. It's about this man who has liver cancer and has to decide whether to die naturally or have euthanasia. Every second chapter is set sometime in the past, detailing his life.

Yeah... plus I've got a couple more ideas, and Im sort-of planning for NaNoWriMo, but I might not end up doing it because of my novel.

I'm writing like, 15 novels.

My one main one is up in the Other Fiction forum. I have the first two chapters done and I'm working on the third. I have the whole thing planned out though. I can't wait to finish it.

Roadkill ahead!

I've only written very little of it, but that will absolutely change in November. Up until then I will research the highways of the States and some other things of importance very throughly.

No =(

But the story I'm working on might turn into a NaNo thing, and then it will become a novel.
