  • it seems nice to start one of some kind, mine would be in the subject matter of what to write a book about., then I'd just list about 5,000 things to write a book about.

    #`1 Write a book about your most embarassing moments, most memorable, and best-happy-ridiculous times.

  • My mom has tried, she's just never finished a book. She knows which publisher she wants to use, but her storyline has changed. It probably won't be anything she will have done till my sister (who is 14) is out of the house.

  • There is actually a "group" on here for that! Search for it :) The lady who runs it has three published novels!

  • I have published small things, poetry and short stories, when I was in school Recently, I was contacted to write a book for publishing company based on one of my websites. It's been a lot of work, but I'm nearing the end (I think).
