View Full Version : Getting into writing

June 6th, 2007, 07:17 PM
I really want to try and start writing, I've thought about applying to do another course at uni and do Creative writing, but it's just money issues I need to think about, but some people have told me I should just start writing, but even though I have a lot of good ideas (IMO anyway), and I know what I want to say, I can never get them written down, it always ends up sounding quite shit.

I personally want to try and write a short fantasy story, but are there any good sites that could help show you how to actually get them down?.

Also, I'd like to include the Nephilim/Watchers in some sense (I find them kind of interesting characters, but I'm not sure of what books or sites to look at when trying to find out their personality, etc). Also, does anyone know of any other fiction (online or off) that features them, that way maybe I can see how others have portrayed them and just get ideas, etc.

Sorry if these are a lot of questions, but writing is something I really am passionate about.

Thanks for any help you can give me.
