well, i dont write professionally. i tried but i can't still seem to find the "itch".. for writing. i usually write quotes, whatever comes in my head, but most of them are random. they are gibberish and incomprehensible. i just compile them and put it in my blog. other than those, i don't what to write and where to begin... what can you suggest? do you think starting with quotes will make me a writer...? or do i have to aspire for something bigger or at least, longer than a quote...

I do have that itch, and I write every day. Sometimes I just post responses at myLot, most days I post on one of my blogs. I write about positive thinking on one blog, so I love finding motivational and inspirational quotes I can share or comment on. I also write many articles, but nearly all of them are written for specific titles, so I don't have to think up a topic. I write assignments for the Marketplace at Helium, where online publishers set out what they want you to write about. I also enter Helium writing contests, write for their reward-athons and take part in some of the Helium debates, so I'm never short of anything to write about. I find the more I write the easier it is to keep writing. There are days when I'm feeling a bit weary, or I need to take a break and have a day off, but writing comes so naturally to me now I can't even imagine a day without writing something!

Nothing wrong with quotes. I've read many a novel where each chapter started out with a quote. You could always go on to explain what the quote means to you or if you have any specific incendents that happened to you in your life that pertains to the quote.
