Re: Wackiest "advice"/comments you've gotten from non-writers

Re: Do we have any screenplay writers in our midst?

I agree about writing being the most fun one can have alone, almost. But sometimes I worry about being too inside my head. My family worries and thinks I am anti-social which I don't think is true, but lately I do prefer my characters to real people-scary. One thing I learned from screenwriting is t...

Re: Injuries from writing?

Re: The Introduction Thread

I am shy for the most part, but I will push myself to post often. I don't want my fears and shyness to get in the way of my dreams.
Fear, shyness, seems to be a running theme for people who write. But congratulations for signing up, took me a year to do so.
