Just was happy to realise I have a reached 15,000 words in play I have been writing. However, I am not sure how much of this is actually just the characters names at the start of every line.
I can't stop writing my play . I want to share it with people but at the same time I don't, just in case I want to get it published someday (if it's good enough anyway).
Going to have a good writing session when I come back from my twighlight run, I really want to share what I have written but at the same time don't think it would be beneficial in any way.
I often feel like that with my work. on one hand I can't wait to get it out there and then on the other I am a little aprehensive. Well done, plays are really difficult to write. I have several half attempted scripts lying around!
Nice I start one, finish it, start a new one, then go back to the old one etc etc
What kind of plays do you write and what are you going to do with them when they are finished?
I have been writing 'modern' style plays like 'Waiting for Godot' if I would have to compare it to anything, with maximum dialogue and little to no 'queus and directions' so that it really feels like a fluid conversation between the characters. I do hope to get it published someday, I know I like the style but I'm not sure how willing publisers would be but I'm positive that I will publish it someday even if it means self-publishing (preferably not though). To discribe it most here is a brief passage from the play but I must swear that I am not going to reveal any more of it.
Person 1:Is that a question?
Person 1:You’re quite adamant it is question?
Person 2:Is that a question?
Person 1: On the same grounds yours is a question.
Things like that. This part is a dialouge between two, I left out the names on purpose just in case of 'hindsight' somehow.
I haven't cried in ages but my eyes started to water when I began writing something in my play. Nothing worth crying over though, I can't believe that I am connected that much with my characters.
Unfortunatly I have succumbed too much to writing about nothing. The play which I am currently writing now (in my eyes, if I can say so myself) is coming along quite nicely. However I would like to dabble in something else. I felt writing 'I am Tram' was a good starting point but I am failing to think of plots adequate to write about or to become novel worthy.
I've read lots of things on how to plot novels etc etc but I really think that getting the first idea is very hard.
Any ideas on how I could get started?

I know that book writing is not an attractive hobby because if your attention drags in between it will lead you no where. And it is obvious that for writing your first book you do not need any age limit. But what should...
