    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.

      Thanks, i find if I leave it for a week I then write for a couple of nights in a row then leave it for a while. THis way I am always writing "fresh" content.

    I can't stop writing my play smile. 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!

          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 2:Yes.

            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 feel so good when I start writing.

    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?
