Hi bluez:) maybe you can make this as a group that helps others how to write a book? I wanted to try to write a book but i can only write in my own language, in english(i find it very difficult) what do you think?

Is anyone working on a current novel or story? How is that going for you if you are, and if not, why not? I am trying to work on two books again, not sure why I like to do that but I think it's cause of the way ideas for the stories come to me. So I am curious, when you run into a block, what do you do? I know there are some that think there is no such thing as a block, it's all in our mind...but then, at least in my case, so are the stories, and so one does have something to do with the other. I try walking away and then coming back, or I play solitaire for a while, but what seems to work best for me is to put on some good music and just listen, often with headphones, and let the music take me there. That might work better for me cause I am a musician too, but if I really like the song, and it's lyrical like anything by Jimi or the Doors, it opens my mind ot other thoughts and ideas. Is there anything in this world better than seeing our work in print? I mean, besides the physical and emotional aspects of our own lives of course. Nothing compares to seeing your child being born, or watching them grow up and lead thier own lives, finding the love of your life and bonding yourselves together and working torwards a common goal. I just thought I would ask, since I really have no idea of how to run this group and am open to suggestions as well, maybe this will get some conversation works best for you?

Hello all; I am also apologizing for not being here as much as some of you, I am balancing my day yob (not a typo) with my family life, my music and my writing, and I know you all have lives too so I am not saying I have an excuse, but right now I am practicing with two bands, instead of my own, I am helping out a friend and will be doing two shows on July third for the Save the Animals Foundation. So please, keep writing and leaving messages, and we never agreed on a chat room time but I will do my best to be there when you let me know what we all decided. Also, please let me know if this image works for the group, believe it or not, this is part of the skyline in downtown LA...from the freeway as someone was driving past. Or do we want scary? Have a great weekend!
