    Anyone into writing? If so, what do you write? Have you been published? And by published I do not mean self-published or having an E-book put on Amazon. :fil:

    Some of you could be good at it.

    I used to think I'd be a successful writer when I "grew up." I used to read a book a week on average and was constantly writing my own stuff.

    Problem was (beside the fact that I'm not a good wordsmith) that I'd always think of a "better" idea while in the middle of a story already.

    I recently read about the writer duo Preston and Child. (They're popular fiction writers....they blend historic/horror/art/and maybe sci-fi the movie The Relic was their book.

    Anyway, it turns out these dudes write together from across the country. I just assumed they were in the same room for some reason. They do it all through email..... it got me thinking that this could be a cool idea.

    You aren't one of those I think would be good at it. But you have a future for Food Magazine :)

    I was into writing big time. I used to write for a newspaper, and a now defunct online magazine. I occasionally submit to music blogs from time to time, but time is a luxury I don't often have the way I used to

    Exactly! When I was younger, I coukd devote countless hours to it. Now... I write down my ideas in a notebook and never do anything with them.

    I've written seven novels, never tried too hard to get them published. I felt they weren't that good.

    I wrote for Mr. Belvedere. I've stated this in a previous thread. I have six episodes to my credit.

    You're damn right you did. No show had sharper writing than Mr. Belvedere.

    I have a number of published recipes. I had a publishing company interested in a cookbook idea that I pitched, but I decided writing a whole book of recipes would be a pain in the ass. I have another book idea that I may pursue though.

    Hot chick at work had me write her a short story about her past experiences. She wanted pornographic details. I wrote it happily. Getting the details from her at her apt one night literally gave me blue balls :jj: If true, this chick is a good egg.

    I need to get back into it. I still write for fun; pretty well actually. Right now, I'm sitting at a bar, by myself, with free wifi. I could be writing up a storm, but am sitting in dawgshed instead

    Did you write the episode where Mr. Belvedere got his thumb stuck in Wesleys asshole and they had a dinner party that night?

    Hilarity ensued.

    Great episode.
