    First of all, you need to have a storyline idea and a couple of characters for your cast--good and bad. You also need a plot and a few subplots or two. Since you're studying biotech, maybe you can do a sci fi or steampunk fiction. There's plenty of magazines and books out there on how to write a book, even online articles. Your education should come first, while you pursue your career. Good luck! BTW, Nano is this November.

    You could start by reading the Bible. Those mythological stories will blow your socks off! And then if you wanted to start a religion based on your fictional writings, you already have your "holy book!"

      Am I being defensive or do I sense passive aggressiveness towards something you don't believe in.

      You can sense whatever you want, buddy. No one asked you to comment. Lol.

      Don't be that guy. At least stand up for what you said.

      I think you're being too sensitive about this. It's a well-known fact that the Bible contains some mythological stories and I'm free to joke about that fact. The fact that you commented here shows you have taken some offense,  but it's not clear why.

      There you go, that's how you defend your statement. Don't ask people not to comment on something you said in public.

      Your condescending attitude is certainly not helpful. So tell me, why were you offended by my answer to this question?

      I see that you intend to argue no matter what. I have been a fool to take the bait. This chain of comments has nothing to do with the question so lets stop here.

      Oh, not honest enough to answer my question? Ok. I see.

    You can't change your passion. You can change what you pursue. Invest time writing, reading and having discussions with experienced people in anything related to literature. Writing is a skill, like any other, you need to practice in order to master.
