    Fellow writers. Please force me to stop messing around on the internet, playing video games, and watching TV. I have notes for a (possibly) brilliant story concept. It's going to wither and die. Hit me until I write.

    Can't believe I've not seen this society before, what a useful tool - people who will understand my massive skill at procrastinating when I should be writing.

    I am signed to a London literary agency and just yesterday received editorial notes on the first 100 pages of my manuscript from one of their in-house readers which I need to work on before it then gets sent out to potential publishers. My route to an agent was most bizarre, I emailed an author to say I had enjoyed her book, she took a look at my blog and emailed her agent about me who agreed to work with me. My agent has been talking my book up to various publishing houses and now four are very interested to see my work.

    Now I just need to stop procrastinating on here and do some work!!

    Hey guys,
    I'm a casual poet, but I've always been very interested in writing a book. But I don't know where to start: every plot line I come up with seems to have already been done several times or just seems plain crap.
    Ironic, but any ideas on how to get a good idea?
    Thanks

    Just take your idea and write it. Who cares if it's already done. Nearly every idea is already done! it's how you execute it that matters!

    Meh, the general plot ideas for a lot of books are similar. But when it's fleshed out to a full book, it's mostly something unique and different. People think differently, and it's reflected in their work.

    Go for it:cool:

    Write damnit! Or someone else will think of it and then you'll be sitting by the side wondering about whether you could've written it better! :yep:

    WIHTOUT YOU

    You helped me
    Every step of the way
    Now how do I walk
    When you go away

    You were beside me
    Every day and every night
    With every laugh and every smile
    With every tear and very cry

    You were with me always
    Taking all my burdens to bear
    But now that I need you the most
    You choose to disappear

    Live your life to the fullest
    That’s what you always said
    Bu now that you’re gone
    It’s like I’m the one who’s dead

    I want to close my eyes
    And dream of you
    So you can tuck me in
    And say, “I love you too!”

    SILVER LINING

    I can see the black clouds coming
    There’s never a silver lining
    This day’s just like any other
    Coz nothing seems to be getting better
    All the voices I used to hear,
    One by one, they all disappeared
    The old days, so full of laughter
    Now there’s no happily ever after
    I spend the day, drowning in sorrow
    Will it be the same, again tomorrow?
    Some things have to change
    And I must be the one to initiate
    In my hands, I hold my fate
    The voices will be listened to
    Coz I’ll start speaking soon
    Finally I breathe free
    Now that I can see
    This day’s like no other
    It’s seems to be getting better
    Even the clouds can’t stop the light
    When the sun want to shine bright

    MOVING ON

    You promised the sun would always shine
    You promised the water would be pure
    You promised with your truthful eyes
    You promised with your fingers crossed

    When the mountains began to shake
    I had nowhere left to hide
    Your house, no longer my shelter
    The mirrors shattered and the foundation crumbled

    I don’t hear your voice now
    The sounds mixed with your ocean waves
    Too far now to see your shadow
    I built my bridge and crossed over

    The sun rose after the darkest nights
    The birds are flying home
    The leaves turning in the wind

    The butterflies are squirming
    I finished my morning puzzle
    The coffee’s no longer sour

    Just started writing my first novel, after ages of not writing anything. I swear I've either forgotten how to write or I'm just not very good. Low self-esteem is very crippling, especially when trying to write comedy.
