I'm reading Stephen King's IT, and I'm thinking, damn! I wanna write a novel, my own story, in a King style manner. Anyone else wanting to write something? I think it would be a great workout in a vocabular sense, and a generally productive thing to do, so anyone? :P

I write constantly. Usually shorter stories (50-100 pages on 8" by 11" printer paper), usually detailing the background of people I create in songs (cool) or while RPing in a game like WoW (not cool).

I'm currently working on two

A medieval fantasy type saga with a female princess-warrior as the protagonist

and a european drama concerning the millenia-long war between Werewolves, vampires, the humans who know, and a random stranger who just fell in the mix

Go for it man...I would love to as well. But my vocabulary isn't that great. And I can't write worth a damn.

I have written various novellas since I was a wee boy. They're pretty terrible.
#10
before i was into guitar, my main hobby actually was writing. first, when i was in like fourth grade, it was one about school, and now that i look back and read it it's terrible. but now i have my own medieval fanatasy, a large series i might add that i have in mind... i just don't ever make time for it anymore since it's gone through about four different versions up to chapter twenty on the very first one. now that i think about it, i should take it back up.

I'm writing one, but it's not getting much progress at the moment =] I really love it though, and have also been inspired by authors such as King. Mine is more Dean Koontz' style, but whatever, we pick up influences from many places, and have it spoken in our own literary voices. That's what I really love about writing, having my own voice.

If you really wanna feel like a writer, get one of those black and white composition notebooks, and a feather quill.

Yes, because King makes the butcher cuts called "movies."

The books are amazing. The movies are not.

I thought his It was a pretty good movie. I'm reading Cell at the moment, and King is a genius.

To stay on topic most people do want to write a book. I know I do. One day I'll have a crack at it.

Agreed! I never liked any of the movies bar 'Stand By Me' based off the novella The Body. I've never disliked a King story, and those discrediting his storytelling abillities ought to do better and then speak up.

I'm writing a story right now.

Have fun, and enjoy it.

I've written a few short stories, and I'm hoping that if I get enough I could get them published in a book, but I don't have nearly enough yet. Also, I've gotten rid of most of the stories I wrote because I decided they sucked.

TS, don't copy King's style, develop your own. You won't be able to write King-style stuff better than Mr. King himself, so publishers aren't going to choose your stuff to publish over his, but if you develop your own style you will have more of a chance.

No, but I've written a few short stories. Fully blown novels are too long and I get bored with stories too quickly to ever finish reading one, let alone writing one.

Well, The Green Mile and The Shawshank Redemption were pretty amazing though, the latter I place as the greatest movie of all time

I'm not joking, same here. Although I was going to shift a little bit farther from marxism into a slihtly more socialistic view, and explain how we can achieve utopia.
#36
I've tried to write a novel about a high security prison, and a man who is trying to break out. It turns out that the man is helping another guy break in to protect him. Not sure what he's being protected from yet, I've never got that far.

I love writing, but I don't get the chance to do it much, mostly just English assignments. I am (slowly) working on a wartime romance/tragedy at the moment though, I don't have much written, but I'd be interested to see what anyone thinks of what I have so far.

good luck!

oh and about Stephen King, I too love his books and some of the movie adaptations were pretty good, others not so much.

whoever said that he was rubbish because the movies suck is an idiot - book=/=movie
