I'm writing a story about a college student who finds out she not human
but actually a queen vampire, and so on. I don't have an official title
right now, but for now I'm just going to call in Midnight Treachery, or
Misery's Comfort.
"She walks in Beauty, like the night,Of cloudless limes and starry skies;And all that's best of dark and bright, Meet in her aspect and her eyes:Thus mellowed to that tender light, Which Heaven to gaudy day denies." -George Gordon Lord Byron

Yes....two actually. And both are failing epically! :P

I'm not writing a novel... I finished it, and now I have to edit =_= Oh goodness. Query letters. They're freaking me out and I think I'm going to pass out when I get my mail back.

I need something to do in the meantime so I learned how to write short stories. I didn't know short stories start in the MIDDLE of the story! I just learned that =_=

So that's why most of my ideas turned into novels rather than into short stories.

Yup. But now I want to make my short stories novels and I'm lacking inspiration and oxygen.

You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself into one.

The writer, when he is also an artist, is someone who admits what others don't dare reveal.

I didn't know you started short stories in the middle!!! golly, thats probably why I have too many ideas...

I'm writing alot of stories personally. THe one I'm really getting into is about a girl named Keira back in the 19th centry, out in the wild west kinda thing. she has dreams about a man with dark hair, a scar and one green eye and one blue eye. I'm having so much fun with it- I have a title, 'Outlaw' because the guy shes dreaming about is actually a leader in an outlaw gang! it's so much fun!! :D

I'm writing a medieval fantasy novel, and I've got the rest of the books (it's going to be a trilogy) all planned out. I've also got ideas for pirate, Greek mythology, and vampire stories in my head, but I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them just yet...

Yes, I've been working on one for nearly nine months and I've done about 65,000 words thus far. I'd say I'm about half way with it.
I go through phases of loving it so much I can't control myself, and hating so much I want to throw my computer out the window. Basically sums it up.

Yea, I am working on 2. I am going back and forth between them, but one is definitely the primary novel. I am rewriting it from scratch for the 4th time trying to make everything just as I want it before it gets to the editing stage.

I am writing several novels right now. XD I write mostly novels and heaps of them. Some of them are finished and in the editing moment, some are just a few chapters, some a few ideas here and there in my writing journal. If I get an idea the next day I will end up devising a plot around it for a whole novel :roll:

I want to write a novel I have over 30k from my JulNo that I didn't finish so maybe that counts....But the ideas are disappearing and the characters are bugging me. So I have to edit and fix them.
