Doesn't matter if you do it professionally or not, do you write? If so, what? Poetry, novels, shorts, flash fiction? What genre(s) or subject(s)?

I'm enjoying lay down some words when i'm inspired. Most of my poems are in my native language (romanian) but i will share here one of my 2 poems in english: - Let the angels for you pray - Scattered glass thru my existence Stepping right in front of me, Guidance to my life ambitions When there was no one to see; You gave life from your own beeing, And you walked along the way; Mother, sister, child... oh, woman, Let the angels for you pray! I wrote this poem some time ago, let me know what you thing about it.

I write articles, short stories, and I have been published several times. I've also won lots of writing contests. It's fun! I'm trying to get published in some of the higher paying magazines so I won't have to work outside the home. My boys need me!

Wow, sounds great! Can you share any thoughts for those of us who would like to become stay at home moms with writing income? Thanks!

yah you! This is what I do as well. My goal is also to eventually live off my writing alone.

I Love to Write, and would Love to be a Published Author someday. I have found myself writing about a lot of different subjects, and that is why I like myLot. We can be ourselves, and talk about what is on our mind, and maybe even make a little bit of extra $$ on here as well.

Yes, I have won a few poetry contests and had my works published in magazines and newspapers. I also write shorts and other forms in many genres, mainly horror and comedy. I've written one romantic comedy screenplay and am working on another one in the horror genre. I've also written comedy sketches and comic books (which I also draw). Many of the sketches have been performed, but I have yet to have any of my sequential art works published... actually, I haven't *finished* any of them.

Ah, I've been looking for the writers here. I write poetry and short stories. I have written two novels, both in the process of editing. I am involved in a writer's group and go to author seminars, workshops and critiquing sessions. Unfortunately, I think mylot is going to take me away from my writing because I am spending so much time on here posting. I love this website. I love talking about different things. I love meeting new people. And I love making money doing it. Ha! And, of course, I love writing. I am trying to get a short story written for the Toronto Star Short Story Contest - the deadline of which is December 31st. I better stop spending so much time online and get that story written!

I write blogs and do some freelance work for a couple of people - mostly keyword rich articles, some web pages and I've written 4 e-books. Naturally, I've got a book in the works - it's a psychological thriller.

I like to write poetry, have also written some prose, monologes etc. Published a small book ten years ago,mostly local folklore.I would like to be able to make some money. Does anyone know where to submit poetry and get paid? Much of my poetry questions the meaning of life,some are ballads,some just plain humorous.

I love to write. I mostly write short stories, poems, and have been working on a novel. I have been published for some of my poetry and even won one award. Seems like it has taken forever to write the novel and I'm still not finished with it but do hope to be published in that field as well.
