One of my hobbies is writing, i write anything--from short stories, novels, articles, diary entries and poems. I find it helps me a lot, when i'm feeling down or i need to let my mind wander and expand i write. So what do you write? I also usually write fantasy, romance or action stories. If you write stories, what genre do you use? Love to hear from everyone!

Hi. I love writing book reviews. I like writing journals of important thoughts, events, or trips. I used to write poems but It's been years that I did not do that. It's been my greatest dream to be able to write and publish novels and short stories. I hope I could do that in the near future.

I am also dreaming about that, cheers to our success in writing. Anyway, when can we submit books for copy writing and etc. I do not know all the process, actually i am done writing a book about research, i just do not know what to do, do i need a sponsor for the book? or i need to spend lots of money for publishing, i think there are still needed to be done before that, such as ISBN, copy writing and rights i think? I do not know, do you have any idea? Can you message me if you have? Thank you so much in advance.

Writing is part of my job, writing scientific papers, writing appilications for grants, writing applications for rewards,etc. Actually, I like thought free writing.

When I was younger, I was into poetry writing and participating in the school paper. I did a lot of news and feature writing. Right now, I'm more onto blogging and writing articles on any current events and how I feel about it.

I also love writing, but i think writing don't like me. I want to write, but i do not know why. The feeling that is keep inside, makes me think that a need to write is present in my heart and mind. I love to write, but i do not know the right format. Is format important? I write different articles, reviews, i even write news. I write poems that will motivate each and everyone who will read it. I love writing deeply with meanings, and i love writing puzzles that will help people's mind to function properly. I love to write books, but i do not know how, when and what to start. I do not know the format of writing a book, but i am sure i have lots of ideas to share. I become a literary writer once, when i was still studying college, after that, i became, the news editor of the paper. One year have passed, i become the editor in chief of the paper, but it seems that there are still lacking of knowledge for me. I am not content and satisfied with what i know, and that is why i still need to add knowledge to myself on writing. My dream is to write a book, that will be known to the whole world, like harry potter. I am not dreaming to be famous, but, i am dreaming of writing a book that will touch the heart of each and everyone of us living in this world. I dream of writing a book for education and research. I dream of writing, i love writing, i know i can write, and i know can do it, but.. I also know that i am not a perfect writer and there is no such things as one. If ever there will be, i will surely ask thy, to be an apprentice of the great writer whose indeed can prove him/herself to the world. I do not choose genre cause for me writing is everything and anything, a writer must be a wide thinker and must be open to all things that is happening in this world. Dark, Light, Sadness, Happiness, and anything, what important is, i know i can right, i can share, i can help and i can express what lies beneath thy heart. That is all and have a nice day.

When I write I like to journal. I also write a lot on MyLot. And I write some music. I write all sorts of stuff. Prose. Also I use it as therapy. I use it to sort my thoughts out. It helps me think and be more productive. I think this is because it's common to use it for therapy. And it works. Also it helps to get my feelings out. This unblocks myself so I can communicate with people better.

I write in a journal every night because I find it relaxing and I enjoy reading my entries at a later date. It's cool to see how much I grow over time. I also enjoy writing poetry to express my feelings. As for work, I freelance and write articles whenever I'm in the mood or have free time.

The novels I write are general women's fiction, but I haven't been writing much lately. I've written short stories in the past but nothing recently. I do write a lot of poetry. For the sake of making a few pennies when I can, I have been writing articles for Triond. I am not really an article writer, but it's is good practice. Lately, mostly I've been writing in my journal(s). I've joined a women's therapy group and we are given writing assignments every week so that has been my focus the last few weeks.

I used to write a lot of romance type stories years ago but now I write more diaryt entries and articles in blog format. I generally tend to write about something if I like it or have a strong opinion about it.
