    What would it be about? You may already have an idea or several, or have started and hit a wall. Myself, have had a few ideas floating around for ages, mainly along science fiction lines....one day, yup, one day :)

    I've noticed women are usually hung up on the murder mystery, or the horror thing more than males seem to be.

    Some mixture of drama/medical/horror. I've had a few ideas in the past, but they never got onto paper

    I'd scare the hell out of you, but I would kiss you first, and you would like it.

    If I were to write what is on my mind, it would end up in the Adult section at the bookstores.

    If people walk out of the store, with it, then you have a winner.

    I want to put together a collection of short stories written by crackheads. I bet that shit would be wild. Say what you will about crackheads but they come up with some pretty amazing stories.

    You are very far from being thick rb. Although the guy finding his calling to be a monk while helping you is a curiosity :)

    I actually have a book written, just not published. It's set in a D & D world. I wrote it during my college years and used some theories from my criminal justice classes to round out the world. I just couldn't get a publisher interested in it.

    It centers on a company that specializes in gathering spell components. I know it doesn't sound like much but one day I was reading what actually goes into a Heroism potion and was shocked that it needed the heart of a hero as its main ingredient. That's how I came up with the idea. Why go kill a hero yourself, when you can hire out a band of professionals to do it for you. :)

    I also delved into why are people Evil. Is it inherent? Is it environmental? Is it because they worship an evil God? All of these (except the last) were things I was studying as a criminal justice minor.

    It's kind of funny. I was thinking of digging out the old power book and putting the story in the fictitous story thread but since it has no sex in it what so ever, wasn't sure it would be appropriate.

    I'm thinking it would be a bunch of short stories with a connecting thread. I usually write short stories that deal with the love between two people, whether it be husband and wife or father and son.

    Other than that? a satire. Of what? not entirely sure, but something definitely humorous. I sort of have a knack for that.

    My main problem is actually starting to write. There's always this apprehension that seems to stop me. That's why i used to throw myself in creative writing classes to force myself to write in order to avoid a failing grade. lol.
