I originally made this thread in Off-Topic, but after thinking it over, I think it actually belongs here.

Anyway, here is the original post of the first thread:
I decided to make this thread dedicated to writing. Post if you start a new writing project, if you get published, links to previously published works, writing technics, ways to beat the dreaded writer's block, or anything writing related.

Like I said, still working on the same novel/screenplay as I have for two years.

Plenty of short stories too, and a few unfinished novels here and there (my longest one, sadly fell apart because of the subject matter)

Would you be interested in me posting any of my stories on here?

Here on Atlas? Sure if you're comfortable.

This thread specifically? Probably not the best place.

Well there are at least three options here, 1) Off Topic threads were I post the stuff, and people read them, 2) you get some sort of AAD account or use your existing one to read it, and tell me what you think, or 3) we do nothing.

I want to discourage public sharing of original ideas, unless published. Also, only share stories with people you trust.

I actually got serious about a writing project (that I first got the idea for 3 years ago) in late 2015. "Serious" in my case means that I've written barely over three chapters' worth of horrible prose that needs complete overhaul.

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

     I am in the process of writing a novel, but with all the stuff I am dealing with now I haven't been working on it. I hope to pick it up again soon. I have already made it 130 pages in and I have a pretty clear outline of the rest of the plot in my head, so I should definitely be able to finish it.

I've heard bad things about Amazon's publishing.

I'm interested in hearing about others writing routine. I don't really have one, and I think I should.

     I usually spend a lot of time plotting it out in my head. Once I am satisfied with what I have there, I'll sit down and put 8-10 pages on paper. I have someone look over it and give suggestions. Then I redraft. I usually only do two drafts instead of three, which from what I have been made to understood is somewhat unusual.

I work best if I have a walk/ride first. It clears my head and gives birth to a lot of loose suggestions, that them develops.

You're not going to find many other publishers for self-pub with their reach. Smashwords has never impressed me. Dunno much about D2D

A lot of writing has to do with reading, so I say this:

I just got like $60 worth of books for $5. I love my library.
