I've decided that I will attempt to self publish the emote story I'm working on for NaNo right now and see if I can maybe sell it. I'll then slowly post the chapters on wattpad to see if maybe I can get an audience and convince more people to throw money towards me

what this means is that I won't be posting it here for all the internet to read. Instead what I'll do is post here when I finish a chapter and then if anyone wants to read it they post in the thread and then I pm it to you. I really hope this works as it would be really cool to actually be a published author -an item on my bucket list-

Freaking writer's block for my first English 'paper' though it's a 'formal introduction letter'. That doesn't make it any better :I

Ugh! I've had writer's block since I graduated high school in May! I get new ideas for things I want to put to words almost every day, but putting down those first few sentences and building momentum from there has proven nearly impossible for me all summer. Help!

Wooh first actual paper... 3 to 4 pages, 600-800 words. It's a personal essay, basically what has made you what you are today.

I think I've got something! I can't come up with a good hook right now though... But I suppose a rough draft doesn't need a good hook.

Coming from an English nerd, 800 words of talking about myself would be the easiest thing in the world. What's best to do in this kind of project is to just write the first things that pop into your head and then let it sit for a while. Do something else while you get the essay out of your mind (this is why you see so many jokes about lazy writers who sit around not doing anything saying "it's part of the process" :P). Then when you feel like revisiting it, do that, and by then you should be able to second-guess the weaker things you wrote and make the most out of them. I hope this helps, I'm pretty tired right now. #thestruggle

So now I have to figure out NASCAR's effect on the American people.

I'd guess that it has really helped with car safety?

Thank you. I am an American after all...
