Hello dear friends of Tales Corner!!!

Here we are again, with another discussion.. and this is... how did you begin writing tales... be it fan fictions or stories...? Was it because of a story you reaD? If so, which one, and by whom?

Another question is... Where do u normally get ideas for stories? While travelling? While doing something? Would really love to know how the great writers here do it!!!

Loads of love,
The Rocking N's of tales corner!

Hehe!!!

I was inspired mostly by Naina Manam, Tanaaz and Ysh's writing... After seeing that, i felt that , "you know what, I'm not THAT bad, why don't i try too?" And i really started at the Storyteller challenge... It was by-far the most successful thing I've seen! I hope we can have it again!!!

For story ideas, funny, but i get inspired by songs. when listening to music, ideas come to my head... Also when i'm travelling, i get loads of ideas!

Agree with niyu! same thingie.. when i was 7 i started writing... at that time i used to have rip off's of other stories

but i started getting sorta original in the 3rd

but after JKR, i went to trying to write some magic magic story... but eventually i have to thank meg cabot and of course tales corner for my originality...

actually it was my 4th standard english teacher who was particular dat i think about writing seriously (i had gotten 94% in my 4th and 97% in my fifth english ASSET exam and topped the essay contest in scul in the 5th and 6th)

so it was she who gave me the push sort off to take my writing seriously and after hert it was y 7th engliush teacher... and OF COURSE all my friends who have read all the crap i have written and encouraged me Embarrassed luvya all even tho ur not here Hug

oh nd i canNOT 4get sam hu was my FIRST encourager here EmbarrassedHugHug luvya bug Wink
