    A silly question =)

    Heya there everyone

    Anyways, i'll get to the point.

    I was thinking about writing a book about well.. im not to sure. Im young (13 >.< lol) but have an excellent imagination and vocabulary lol (besides the "lol" and stuff). Like... I always start thinking about writing a book or a short story but .. I just can't keep my mind on something (RL problems lol). I'd like to see what you guys think. I actually started writing a book on a piece of paper and lost it haha. I've also been thinkin' of doing a little project at school but I always chicken out :embarassed: heh.. but I'd really like to hear an opinion from all of you. If I get enough encouragement I may even write something lol.

    Well .. plz leave a reply. Cya round! :azn:

    Start writing, but I think you should start smaller than a novel. Try writing a short story with a contained plot but with the potential to be part of a larger story. The best way to learn writing is to write. Don't be discouraged by age, I have read a novel or two by teenagers that were quite impressive.

    Good luck!

    Also, there are numerous fan fiction type sites all over the internet that will critique your work if you like that sort of thing. If you don't take criticism well then I would advise not doing so though.

    I'm assuming you like Diablo II, considering what web site this forum is on. You might want to try the Fan Fiction forum. They, most likely, have more writing experience than we do here (I say maybe because the FF Forum has kinda low traffic...). Plus, you could try some basic Fan Fiction out there, if you're into that kind of thing.

    P.S: The OTF rarely responds negatively to short posts. It's when you try to form a complex thesis (or break 10 lines) that people get bent out of shape.

    What to write about is up to you of course. Don't let others get you down, especially about something like this that can be as personal (and thus none of their business) or as public (in which case you would eventually want to be published) as you want. Though you have to be able to withstand tons of criticism if you want to write in the public domain, but, if you are able, you will learn much much more than you could keeping your work private.

    No-one is too young to start writing. Well, unless you lack the motor skills to pick up a crayon.

    Make sure that whatever it is, it has ninjas in it. No wait, Nazis. No wait, pirates.

    Just a couple of suggestions. 1) If it's something you one day might publish, do not post it on the internet. Someone else could claim it as theirs and publish it before you do. 2) Don't write in IM speak any more. It's a good habit to write normally as often as possible. Your first couple of posts in this thread were good, but one of the later ones wasn't so.
