As am I, but a different kind of writer.  A screenwriter to be precise.  So we'll talk later after you've written something and I want to make it into a movie that isn't as good as your book, because that's all we do.

If there's a writer in this world who's NOT aspiring... :^) I'm one of those aspirers. Got a book cooking that involves a fight between ninjas with zombie pirates teamed up against zombie cowboys riding robot dinosaurs. :^) A toasted hard drive has set me back a bit, but I'll get back on it someday.

   And I'm scheduled to draw all the robot dinosaurs and zombie pirates. Which isn't quite the same as writing but...meh. We need an aspiring artists thread.

  Oh it's awesome. It sounds like Pak is just throwing random elements into it, but he's literally taking all the zombies and aliens and ninjas and turning it into a fluid story.

I've written a series of erotic thrillers about a female kindergarten teacher who learns that life is more than a work-a-day job at the tire planet.

It's called "Death Baby"

  I hope you're not serious, because I've been suffering random bouts of laughter after reading your post for the last hour.  :D

I am an aspiring writer. I wish to right non-convential fantasy and horror, with elements of hard scifi (as in, stuff were the scifi concepts are somewhat pheasable, instead of using science as a new magic or plot device). I favor the undead, especially of the benevolent or vengeful type. I delight in the Faerie, the old kind, that steal babies and change the fate of men and fear cold iron and running water. I am enamored of monsters, especially interesting, well thought-out ones with truly alien psyches, not just elves and dwarves as racial metaphors.

Anyway, given the current odds as I understand them, I have a better chance of getting my teen titans fanfiction published than any of my original stories. -_- Writer's market sucks.
Love doesn't hurt. It kills.

.... about 50,000 words into book #1 and couple more in outline form.  #1 will make a GREAT movie... heh-heh... that's what we ALL say.  My first draft of #1 was accidentally deleted by a household member (never told her, either).  My advice is to save save save and make a copy periodically stored off the computer.

Love RIFFTRAX to unclog the brain when it turns to mush.  Well, RIFFTRAX and beer. 

Writers don't write because we want to, but because we have to.
