Oops me too on the proofreading part.

Take your time. I am writing my second story since a couple of weeks (no fanfic) and even if I love writing I feel like it takes me forever this time. My first story I have written in less than 6 months (about 60000 words). But I joined a writing workshop and they told us to take our time, there is no time limit to finish our story.

Anyhow, I am curious about the next chapters

That's cool! Good for you that you're on your second story. What type of stories do you write, if you don't mind my asking?

I took a few fiction writing classes in college, but I still feel like I'm not good enough. I'm thinking about getting into another writing program.

Wow, 60,000 is a lot of words. I've only written 3 fan fics and am no very good. It's definitely not quality writing and I envy anyone who has the ability to produce a good story.

It's a novel, the first one was a love story with some drama and psycho in it. I don't know exactly where I got my inspiration... I gave it to some close friends and family and they loved it. They said it was thrilling and heart breaking, but I 've always known that they are not the right people to criticize it because they are too close. So after this writing workshop I know for sure how bad my writing is, but I am still glad my friends liked it and I think writing is a good thing to fill your free time (besides watching DC). With my second story I try to do things better. It's also a novel, love story with drama. One of my main character is absolutely inspired by Pacey

Christina, I really like your writing style. May I ask you which college/studies did you attend?

JJH, can I find your fics on fanfiction.net?

Yeah, my professors used to say family and friends aren't the best critics. But it's awesome that you're on your second original story and you completed a novel. That's a big accomplishment!

I graduated from Elmhurst College. It's a liberal arts college just outside Chicago. I majored in English with an emphasis in writing. I'm thinking about getting a masters in creative writing.

Masters in creative writing would be fantastic! Too bad we don't speak the same language, you would be an awesome proof reader for my new story

I know I am not that talented in writing but as long as I love it I want to continue It's a special experience when you finish your own story and during writing some special parts I had tears in my eyes. It's awesome what emotions are coming up sometimes. I will never forget these special moments I had.

Sorry, off topic

Please let me know when you finished the new chapters, can't wait to read it

That's impressive. I always felt I wanted to write, but never did until the recent Fan Fics I wrote and even those are short. I was inspired to write a Script once and had actually started it, but when I told a couple people about it, they laughed, so it kind of derailed me. I'm disappointed I didn't follow through because I had the whole story in my head and it felt creative, but I've lost it now. I have to wait for the next inspiration I guess.

Yes you can. Search CPPgirl and you will find 3 short stories there and all were inspired by Josh. One is a Cole story told by Helen's POV and set in the past and the other 2 are DC and are about two actual scenes from the show, "Stolen Kisses" and "A Winter's Tale".

They are a bit rough and I never had anyone proofread them, so there are some errors in there and some things I would change if I had noticed them before I put them up.

Maybe one day we'll be able to read your work.

Inspiration usually strikes when you least expect it.

I loved your Winter's Tale fic!
