I write mainly historical romance fiction. Usually novellas (less than 100 pages) but I'm currently working on a novel that I hope to someday get published. Like that'll happen with an infant in the house
I can dream, though!!

I write articles, e-books and things like that for money, but I love writing poetry and short stories. My goal is to write at least one romance novel, lol.

I write mystery novels. I was working on one set in Ancient Egypt before I got pregnant with David- that was three and a half years ago
I should really pick that up. Must be around here somewhere.

I write what I feel in whatever order it comes out in. I don't want to officially publish my work... That doesnt bother me at all
Cause I know my weakness, know my voice,
Now I believe in grace and choice,
And I know perhaps my heart is farce,
But I’ll be born without a mask

I've been trying to pick that novel up again, but I have to say that at this moment all I'm "writing" is my grocery list

When I was younger I used to write poetry...

I just know I have a 'chick lit' novel inside me, waiting to burst out! It's just a matter of getting the thoughts and ideas down on paper & then actually writing!

I write all kinds of things. I'm an essayist at heart, and throw in my essays here and there in my writing, but I'm reserving lots of them for a compilation work I'm setting aside.

Right now I have five projects I'm working on relatively actively. One's a teen high school novel; two short stories (one may be long enough to stretch into a book), my next novel (dark humor/satire), and a journal of the insides of my mind.

My work is all philosophy, or at least contains a strong philosophical theme. It's what I study; it's what I love; it's what I do. None of what's above includes the essays I'm working on. I think I have four. I lose track sometimes haha.

Hi ladies,
Im Missi and still exploring around here, trying to bring myself out from lurking lol. I mostly write articles and have published them myself online. I have a list of about 15 more that I need to write but with two toddlers and a teen and hubby deployed, I never seem to find enough time to sit down and do it.

How do you SAH/WAHM's do it?

Thank you 3Daughters for my AWESOME siggy!

I write smutty romance. Forbidden romance. Modern day, too. :] I'm better at realistic-fiction. I've tried fantasy, but I get bored with it or come to a stand-still. =/

I've almost finished two novels on my own and one with my best friend (baby's due date might be her b-day too btw! :] <333). But we got bored, didn't want to bring them to a close, and deleted them. :]

My best genres are Fantasy and Science Fiction. I also enjoy writing Underground Culture literature (aka punk, goth ect.) I really have a connection with the socially rejected of the world. But science Fiction is my heart.

I write news articles and opinion pieces for publication. I'd love to write a book (non-fiction), but I just haven't had the free time!

My dad is convinced that one day I will write children's books b/c when I was younger I used to write stories and make my own books out of them (and illustrate them!).
