Well, I've never tried to get anything published, but I write poetry when the mood strikes and I am working on a book. IF it ever gets finished, I might try to find a publisher for that, but I have a long way to go and that's just to get the first (very rough) draft done

I write poetry, but have never tried to have it published. I just do it for myself, and my DH is the only one allowed to see it.

I have written some poetry, mainly stuff for Jon. I don't share it often, though I think I did show one or two to Heidi last year.
I have written alot of "adult" short stories, all pretty much rated X Never tried to publish it, but I have had a website feature it (don't know if they still have it on the site though been a long time since I checked it out) I had a friend in NC think I should have sent a few of them to Penthouse or Playboy, I guess they give a monetary reward if they use your work.

Writters want to share??

I will be honest, I'm only published because of my DH's pushing. He has seen most of what I've written since we were married, but no one else has!!!

Is everyone else kinda shy?? Want to do it annoyomous? Send it to me, I"ll post it stating it is one of our writters...NOT my work!

Would you like to share??????

geez ...i never saw this board topic either in here! lmao or i would have been here a LONG time ago....lmao ive been writing poetry since i was 10...though it being any good lmao im not so sure...ive had some published through the international library of poetry...though i dont think they selected me because the poems were necessarily good...they probably just needed to fill extra space...
id love to share my thoughts though...i like to think that someone somewhere can relate to what im saying...since ALOT of people take some of my writing LITERALLY and sometimes they get it confused with being sexual...and its NOT meant to be like that AT ALL...lol just FYI...
heres something i wrote (its in 2 parts one for the beginning and one for the end) for my "true" love...::sighs::
geez i hope no one on here knows this guy lmao....

Imani
(Part I)

Rich Cocoa embedded in Your skin
Has astonished me that in Hindsight
The Sweetness had seeped out from within
And comforted my Cries throughout the Night

It passed through my body, and it's entirety
Making my Silent screams urge no more
Although the Sweet Essence i could not see
It eased the Pain of my Internal War

And when i see the Pearls of White shine
Life seems so very worthwhile
i desire to stop the concept of Time
So that i could Forever see Your Smile

And so that i could taste that Abstract Rose
My lips Yearning! at that sensual Thought
Of touching the soft mound beneath Your nose
For no one can bring me what You have brought

(Part II)

Bitter salt Stains my cheek
And my Heart has become weak
Confusion sets in my Soul
In my Heart You've built a Hole

The Sweetness has now turned Sour
once my Heart was in Its Power
It has now crushed my Delicate Spirit
But oh! how i Yearn! to be near It....

my Love no longer reciprocated
my Soul so Cruelly manipulated
But how my Heart still Yearns!
For the Heart never learns....

Such a Tragic tale am i
Forever waiting for His reply
For a reply that will surely not come
How i wish my Heart would somehow go numb....


Those Pearls of White that used to shine
Have now disappeared in Forgotten Time
The beautiful Laughter i no longer hear
Though how i wish You would appear!

-Unto my Desolate eyes-
-To comfort my Cries-
-And remove my Fears-
-And those Bitter Tears!-

That have kept me up for too many Nights
Though You will never know what Love ignites....
Inside the Soul of a Delicate nature
And in so releasing such Perfect rapture....

Until the day the Heart is Shattered
And the frail Spirit is Bruised and Battered
And the Soul Forever Tainted
All from the story You have Painted....

geez love sucks ::

Crazy that it took me this long to stumble upon this board. I am a writer working on my first full lenth novel. I should rephrase that. I was working on a novel until I found out I was pregnant, then I turned all baby crazy. Now I have decided to harness that energy and have begun to work on a book about four very different first time moms and what they go through during their pregnancies. Kinda like Sex and the City gets knocked up!

I'm glad to find a community of like minded individuals!

I'm working on a mystery at the moment. I left it for a while after I had ds, but now I'm ready to continue it. It's a bit hard because I have to re-read it or start all over again.
I would recommend a book. The "Complete Idiot's Guide to Getting Published". Also, get the latest edition of the "Writer's Guide to Book Editors, Publishers and Literary Agents". You'll have th econtact information of the publishers of your genre. Very useful.

After I won a poetry contest in high school (the prize paid for my prom dress, lol) I got interested in sharing my writing. I've had some poetry published in national magazines, and had a short story published in a newspaper. Later, I wrote feature stories for the local weekly newspaper (that was SO fun!) I haven't tried wrting for publication for awhile, though. Maybe someday, when life slows down (yeah, RIGHT!, lol)

I have over 30 poems that I have written in the last 10 years. They are all on the web, so that's kind of published. There just isn't much money in selling poetry. I'd rather just keep it for myself and keep the rights to it. I have written several short stories (none are published) and have written how-to articles for a few different websites. I have always loved writing and am just now pushing myself to send my articles to magazines. I got my first rejection letter (live and learn, lol) and have revised and sent it on again to someone new. I have about 5 articles out now, just waiting on the decision of the magazines. One day I'll finish one of the many books I have started. I have pages and pages of ideas for articles, short stories and even novels. I just never take the time to get past writing the first chapter.
