Re: What are you listening to?

Bon Jovi.
I think this one is called Bad Medicine...?

I love writing while listening to music. It helps set the mood. For example, if I am writing a particularly crazy dream sequence, I will most likely listen to The Beatles. :P

( I <3 The Beatles...)

Re: Something I have discovered, how about you...

I usually do a bit of both. When I'm editing and rereading, I fix this word up here, and a punctuation there, delete that whole paragraph there. :) I don't have a mindset on how long or short I want my novel to be, I just write whatever fits, then it's supposed to be there. No use cutting it out. As...

Re: Does anyone write humor?

I think one of the stories I am writing is funny because it's random and silly. Though, it's in my nature to be random and silly and I don't mean to put that into my novel, but there it gets put anyways. In fact, another story I'm writing (multitasker here) is trying it's hardest to be serious. Thou...

Re: When I grow up I want to be...

There was the newscaster, journalist, geologist, the President of the United States. :P But I always knew that whatever I'd be doing, I'd still be writing. I began writing books since, what? Kindergarten. I remember I made a series (complete wi...

Agreed with the comments on Critters . I used it for a while, but eventually quit because I couldn't keep up with the required crit schedule. You might want to look at http://www.critiquecircle.com It's the same idea as Critters , but without the time limits on the crits you do. I've gotten some ve...

Re: Writer's Block

Is it even possible not to get writer's block? I wonder... Me, I'm odd. In the morning well into the evening I have writer's block, in which everything I write is, well, let's just say not pretty. By about 8 PM, it magically vanishes and I write exceedingly well. So, I guess I write better at night....
