I should have voted for "It depends."

These days, I have to write, whether I feel creative, feel like it, or have the time. Because I must complete NaNo.

I SHALL COMPLETE NANO. NOTHING CAN STOP ME!

I do write on notepads, though. Especially in school. Actually, notepads help me concentrate because I'm not distracted by this lovely website and all its hateful people.
Oh, yes, I do remember writing on notepads in school. Brings back memories.

I write on my mom's computer which doesn't have internet connection so I can't get distracted! But school's the only place I use notepads.

You know, you've just given me an idea for the next poll.

I write whenever I try to juggle three things at one time...no seriously. Whenever I'm typing on my novel, I'm always drawin something, watching TV, playing a computer game or babysitting...and I'm bored all the while...

Man, I'm getting a lot of inspiration to write some romance into my novel from this video on YouTube. But if I write romance, it'll be cheesy, crappy and unrealistic.

Actually, you can't say that unless you give it a shot...(I know you Shadow...you're a better writer that you think you are...)...maybe watching one of those Asian Soap operas will give you an idea of non-corny romance (my sister recommends Winter Sonata - I really shouldn't know this kind of 'lovey-love' stuff, but when your sibling watches all of the episodes on TV three meters from you in the living room, some of it sticks with you...)

Thanks for the compliment and the advice. You deserve some forum thanks for that! But seriously, if I posted romance, I'd be destroyed. Mine would be like the typical, cliché kind of romance you get in average teenage poetry these days...

Hmm...I think its also the SITUATION going on that might lean to more 'cheesy' scenes. I mean, if the characters haven't seen each other in years, and they meet, well, there a lot more chances of something too corny being written down, as you have to write a lot about their emotions to show the drama in the scene. But, maybe if you settled for something simple, and 'cute', there would be less room for crossing the lines, as characters will do less to show their emotions, often reluctantly, which cuts out the risk of someone taking a bullet for another person and saying something flowery as they die.
