Wow, three novels. You are one serious person. I envy your concentration skills The second novel sounds really original, I'm looking forward to reading some of it. If you need me to crit anything etc, PM me. Not that I'll be much use, but I can try.

Hey, it's nice to meet you. My name's Will.

Remember to follow the rules an all that jazz. However, I already think you won't have a problem with them at all, as you're already following them pretty much to the T. Good newb. *pats head and gives a treat* Kidding! *laughs*

As you can tell, I make very corny jokes, so... enjoy. xD Nice meeting you.

Haha. That's cute. I think I have the basic rules down ( my intensionspand is quite small)
-No sexual stuff
-Be nice
-Non-proper language(such as text talk) is looked down upon.
Is that accurate?

Corny and random jokes are really funny most of the time Will, and besides they always work if you want to comfort somebody.

That's a heck of a lot of novels to be writing at once :S. Welcome to the site!

Did someone ask what kind of novels they are already? Cause I'm curious now. And do you write short stories? You should consider submitting to Survival By Storytelling. The second issue has a theme! You can learn more about that here. There's also a section on the main page of the site for the magazine. It's our official mag! And you should submit! Oh, and get the first issue. Links in my sig .

Yeah, alright, enough of that from me . So, welcome. Let me know if you have any questions!

Hello,
i am writing a few realistic fictions. I have returned a few of my books into ideas. I now have a series idea called the nine dark keys. I have gotten pretty far.

Hi! My name is butterfly. I'm kinda new but not exactly new so I'm probably in the middle. Anyway, welcome to YWO!! I think it's cool how your working on 3 novels. I love writing so much that I have a special process.

1. If I ever see something that inspires me I make a note of it, so I can make out the plot for the story in my head (If I'm not near my notebook)
2. When I get near my notebook I write down the idea, and I might be able to pick out a title for it too.
3. I list all the characters; you know, their personality, their role in the story, and how they relate to the main character
4. Then I write down the summary, by the time I've gotten to this part I would've thought about it so much I know the whole story
5. Since I always type my novels (who doesn't? But if you actually do and your reading this....don't hurt me.) I make a folder for the novel where I will save the chapters.

And when all of that is done, i work chapter by chapter till the end of the story. Sometimes I'll plan out the chapter before I type it, and other times I'll let it write itself. At the moment I have... 12 novel ideas that I've already written summary's for. Its so much fun! I'm about to start working on them, but I don't think I would try 3 at once. I'm only doing 2, and maybe if i get stuck half way I'll move on to 2 others.

- My first is called Highschool Sweetheart
- My second is called Fantasia
I have a complicated thought process, but at least it sparks creativity! Good luck with your novels, I hope they come out fantastic.
