have you any good sites you've found on the Internet that would help with Research or anything writing related.

Had anything published or just trying to pout together a final draft or a proposal or just can't stop writing. Let us know.

Hello July 05, 2005 11:13 PM

 and  My 26 year old daughter is bipolar and writes the most amazing poetry BUT she can't write many happy ones, says that's too difficult. Poetry has to come from the heart so we look forward to you speaking yours.

Just jump right in ( or should that be write) groan OK I know it was bad.

You can set up as many folders for yourself as you'd like for poetry, stories a journal anything really, just get the thinking hat on and start writing.

Hello All July 04, 2005 4:57 PM

Hey. thanks for the invite.  I used to write a lot when I was younger like say 14-17 and when I was depressed I just turned out the poetry.  Seems i can only write good poetry when I'm depressed. LOL.  I'm 26 years old, live with my Mother and Grandfather, have a new boyfreind who I am very close to so spending a lot of time with him and may be a little slow doing some exercises.  But I want to get writing again. 

I have a pug and a persian and old rooster, my Mom has a sheltie and a persian and a cockatiel and we have three stray cats that eat at our garage.  I live in Arizona, so am sort of avoiding the heat of the day, tend to live at night.  I love fantasy and horror and read all i can of both, also interested in reading romance, sci -fi, and classics and science information. 

One thing about me, i spell horribly so, apologizing before hand : ). 

I am pagan and many would call me odd. 

I am into some alternative lifestyles which i may or may not write about.  My whole belief in life is live and let live as long as you hurt none and don't force your beleifs down anyone elses throat do as you will.  Uh that's all I can think to say about myself.  Ask questions if you want and feel free to critique my work.

 just open up a folder for your work or just to have as a journal. If you don't want a comment say so otherwise you'll get feedback.

Any exercise topic of course should be under that heading.

Any hints or links you find or pick up along the way go under those headings. anything else you want to know or share treat as any other group board AND of course if you have any share them so we can get our thinking caps on.

Question June 21, 2005 2:56 PM

 to Becca and Allie, the first two members. Allie just open a page and start. . you can do each exercise as often as you like too. I'm going to do that as I hope it will encourage me to write every day and actually get my book started.

Becca I hope you will try the exercisies too and tell us about yourself. Where your interests lie.

Don't worry about spelling too much as mine will lookstrange to the Americans as Iwrite in the English spelling( that's unless I make a mistake in any language

Hi Linda June 19, 2005 5:23 PM

I am glad for this group.   I have wanted for years to give writing a chance, and have many tell me I should write.  Maybe this will be a start for me.  I am 52, live in Tennessee with my hubby of 31 years,  and a whole bunch of pets   Thanks for starting this group.

Linda,  your poetry is great!

Welcome/Introduction June 12, 2005 8:26 PM

 to the fun which is only limited by our imaginations so we can have a whale of a time. About me I am a 53yr old widow who has rediscovered writing and have started this group to me get back into the way of it, to improve, to stretch myself and to have fun. We get out of life what we put in so the more you participate the more you will gain. I am doing research at the moment before beginning a historical romance so the exercises and short pieces and poems I write here will be important to keep the muse flowing.  [ send green star]
