I've joined a new community, 400words. It's based on advice that Terry Pratchett gave to aspiring writers. Seems he writes at least 400 words per day, no matter what. You can see my first entry here. It feels good to exercise that muscle again. I feel like I have a pretty good writing style that people would enjoy, once I get put down the right path. The hard part for me is finding plot. But, I'm hoping this community will help me improve in that area, as well as any others that need work...

Good for you, Kurt! :) Hey, maybe you can do the next NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) event!

Possibly...That would mean actually trying to put together a whole novel, as opposed to the short stories I've done so far, but we'll see how I feel in...um...October?
