Me me me. I need all the encouragement I can get. I am queen of the procrastinators.

Goober Wed 03-Sep-08 19:49:52

Me too.

I don't remember the Creative Writing club but am a dabbler, so am interested!

luckywinner Wed 03-Sep-08 19:52:48

Goober, what are you writing?

Goober Wed 03-Sep-08 20:04:28

I have been working on my first novel, but recently lost my mum and it has put a stop to it. I need to get started again. She wanted me to finish it.

I am really sorry to hear about your mum. I'm sure it is hard to focus the mind after something like that. Just think of that dedication in the front of the book. When I feel low on confidence and energy, I always think about who I will dedicate my first novel too.

And me!

sad goober

good to see so many, there must be more out there?!

This sounds interesting - I am not a writer but keen reader. Will you be posting what you are writing. I will definately follow that!!!! grin

teafortwo Wed 03-Sep-08 21:23:00

I didn't need to say "I am not a writer" The use of a . instead of a ? Said it all. He he he!

On a serious note - Goober - I am sending a big cloud with special raindrops to rain on you. These raindrops are special because they are filled not with water but with many sympathetic thoughts and strength!

If you are a writer, you should write, I think it could help and it would be a pleasure to read your work - if you would be so kind as to post some!

Goober Wed 03-Sep-08 22:17:24

Thanks all. I will find my Mojo again.

teafortwo Thu 04-Sep-08 19:42:49

mankymummy Thu 04-Sep-08 19:43:51

yes please... we need this ! ... or i do!

pillowcase Thu 04-Sep-08 19:50:55

me too, anyone actually writing daily here? I'm at a 'it's September I'm going to do it this time' stage yet again. Am trying to just write 300 words a day on any subject until inspiration strikes!!!!!!!!!

alittleteapot Thu 04-Sep-08 20:00:37

Ooh yes! Count me in!

alittleteapot Thu 04-Sep-08 20:01:13

Ooh yes! Count me in!

Count me in too! Have just started what will hopefully become my first novel. smile

psychobabble - I am quite new to mn. What happens on this thread normally - do you post your work for us to read?

alittleteapot - I wondered when our paths would cross!!??!! grin - I think our names are different enough and I am cool... but not being that experienced with mn I just wanted to check - do you mind that we both have 'tea' in our names or do you want me to change names?

alittleteapot Thu 04-Sep-08 20:44:42

hi teafortwo - not at all. the more tea the merrier - in my house anyway.

teafortwo Thu 04-Sep-08 21:02:45

Same here - I am enjoying a nice Marrakech mint tea as we type!! grin

Great stuff!!! Hey, I'm telling you, the things us women worry about!!! [demands a rolls eyes at self smiley]

alittleteapot Thu 04-Sep-08 21:18:56

That sounds lovely. I've just been told on another thread I have to give up tea shock so maybe I should try your minty one!

And yes, worrying should really be introduced as an Olympic sport in 2012. smile

PS: isn't a creative writing thread on mumsnet a bit pointless? Won't we just end up chatting in class? Loving the idea though...
