When I decided that I wanted to write in a serious way, I realized that I needed help. From my past writing experience I knew that three big hurdles for me would be Grammar, Composition, and editing. The first thing I did was search the Internet for writing software that had to do with the three problems mentioned.

What I have found is that the software which I purchased online for a very reasonable cost, and the critiques... Show more

It's so important to have great writing programs to help make the process easier (and more professional!). I have heard great things about StoryBook Pro, but I have never seen that Editor program - I'm going to look into it. So many people need a good editor but don't have anybody to help them :)

This is a new group and I hope it will become an active group. For now I'm the moderator and founded this group. I'm a retired United States Marine and live in a small town in Eastern Oklahoma. In the last year I've decided that I want to write to occupy my time. The one thing I will strive to do is to learn to enjoy writing.

I should be completing my first book about my time in Vietnam (1970-1971) as an Infantry Squad Leader... Show more

Hi everyone...I've only been a member in this group for a few days. I am a children's author of short stories and poems...Lenora Rodgers and I hail from Elizabethtown, KY USA. Even though I've been a member on Bookrix since last October, I've only had time to pursue writing in... Show more

Look forward to reading some of your writing. With so many good writers, getting to everyone's books is a challenge. For me at least, you are the first Children's writer I've run across in the groups I belong to, so getting to your books should be easier. Post them here in the... Show more

Let's write a story. I'll start! The story is about a garbage truck worker that finds a lottery ticket then finds out it's worth 125,000,000 dollars. The story is a comedy. The rules: no foul language, The story. begins:

On a Monday about week after Christmas, Billy was tossing his fifteenth evergreen into the crusher in the back of the truck. "Stupid things aren't green any more, that's for sure. Too bad they're still full of sap," he groused, prying tinsel off his gloves.

The scratch card had been purchased by Bertie Blewitt, earlier that day at his local off-licence along with his regular bottle of "meds."

Thanking Beverly, the licensee, Bertie paid for his goods and left the shop. He then made his way to the small brick wall at the side of the... Show more

It's the middle of the week and the weekend is drawing near. For all you working people out there, when is your best time to write. Is it the weekend? Not that I don't work, but I'm fully retired, so my writing is my work I guess?

But writing is not really work for me as much as it is a fun thing and an escape! Do you escape into your writing or is it really a chore?

For me, I'm in college right now studying to be a veterinary nurse, and so the best time for me to write is basically the middle of the night, or whenever else I find myself trying to avoid studying and homework. I've been feeling a little blocked lately, but I write a page a... Show more

Yep! that's the way it works for me. I have plenty of time to write but do better when the mood hits. I also try to write sometning everyday. either on a book I'm working on, or on my blog. Gets harder when the Winter bules set in.

The good thing is that you're writing. No... Show more

Good Sunday morning All! Raining out here in Eastern Oklahoma. Coffee is brewing and I'm awake. Remember; a page a day keeps writer's block away.

it's 39 degrees @ 6:53 a.m. in Eastern Oklahoma and headed to a high of 65. Need to get some writing in today and get my brain warmed up. Remember; a page a day keeps the doctor awayy. I know it's apples but I don't have any apples.

Let's get writing!

Good morning to you, sir! I'll be thinking about you as I do some writing of my own today - I'm sure you'll beat that silly writers' block into submission. ')

Can expectation curtail your writing? I really like to get lost in writing a good story. I think that for me keeps me writing. Yes I would love to be a successful, wealthy, and a known writer. But I also believe that if that were at the top of the list of motivations for writing, I probably would have given up long ago.

The the advent of self publishing and e-books out there, I know the competition is fierce! I like talking to... Show more
