Hey all--I'm happy to announce my first book of poems, 'Pressed Against All That Nothing,' is available on Amazon. Take a look:

Thanks, fellas. Write on.

I've created a Wattpad account; it's another site where others post their writing. I've only posted a past project from a Creative Writing course I took back in CC, but I do plan on posting other projects later on. Criticism is welcomed.

Sure, Ken Hagdal. I'm working on something I want to start self-publishing a year from this fall, so I'm going to want to start gathering information while I keep working on the writing aspect.

Do you make any money this way?

Comment by Aaron P on February 11, 2014 at 12:29am

Do you post chapters of your work online?
It was suggested to me to set up a blog with chapters to, "generate a buzz."

This is what I'm going with my novels on Noveljoy. You get a good amount of feedback, learn what wortks, what doesn't, and, at least on that site, you are sole owner of your work.  It also provides classes and means to self-publish.  Guys here should check it out.

Question for those writing a book:

Do you post chapters of your work online?
It was suggested to me to set up a blog with chapters to, "generate a buzz."

So, is it a good idea?

What I'm writing is nonfiction but I've feel learning the rules has made it easier for me to break them. ;-)

@ Pedro

It depends on what kind of writing you're doing. Are you a fiction writer? Non-fiction? Poet? There's all kinds of great stuff out there depending on your genre and goals.

@Pedro

I would recommend Joseph Campbell's "The Hero with a Thousand Faces" for writers of fiction. It sets up the archetypes and hero journey types that have stood the test of time in writing.

I was given some good advice from a women in publishing.
"Memorize Strunk and Whites Elements of Style."

I carried it with me for weeks and will do so again.
What other books would you say are essential for writers?

Interested in Engineering-Any Knowledgeable Guys?

Alright, so I know I posted a whiny thread a while back, but now I'm working on getting ahead in my life, and I have some questions.I'm quite sure I'm going back to school by the Fall semester at the Community College I was attending before, and I am really interested in funneling my interest in science and invention towards entering the program to transfer to my state's university for the engineering programs there.I've noticed that quite a few guys around here are engineers, or engineering…See More
