What is your favorite writing saying?

'kill your darlings' i find it necessary

What is your favorite book on writing?

On writing 'stephen king'

What do you write?

-mostly poetry and short stories,some fanfiction too.i am working a novel (series)

What do you read?

-lately,I've found myself reading a lot of fanfiction .last good book i read was'fledgling',by octavia butler. -i'm not really picky on genres ,as i read anything but romance,really because i haven' found any good ones.alot of them seem lust driven; that's what erotica's for. i've also read some urban fiction (i'm black,so that's a given) ,though i don't like many of them (favorite writer in terms of style are sister souljah ). i really like the idea of urban fantasy,but besides digging into a few of 'the dresden files' novels ,i tend to stay away (i haven't read them all because of lack of funds/unable to locate them). i am a manga reader too,really because its free online,and i read web novels for the same reason. i need to go dig into the book market of 2013 ,as most of my reads are somewhat dated.

Tell me something else about yourself, please?

i joined this group because i would like to meet other people with this interest ,as it is hard to talk to non-writers about writing. i have had a problem with my work recently,I had run into a standstill.with no one to read my manuscript(i know a shit load of non-readers either because it bores them or because of low literacy levels) ,i had become insecure and been stuck on one (four?) novel(s) . also,i admit to not being overly social (its my upbringing.was kept under lock and key all my's hard to get out of the habit,really hard). i'm also somewhat introverted.feel as though i should warn people that i'm not silent because of snobbery or actual shyness.i'm just not much of a talker all the time. i'm also kinda unexperienced at this writing thing .no won contests or anything,just near perfect scores on college papers and a small following for my fanfiction.and no,i'm not dumb enough to think it means anything. my hobbies are video games,reading,writing,drawing (hardly)


i'm a 21 yr old college student ,aspiring to be a writer.i am,however, a realist.i don't expect to be able to live off my writing (i would love to ,but what are the chances?). ideally i would like a career that involves writing,but i'm not idealistic
