jashleigh: The book I have always wanted to write is all about me. Self-important much? Maybe.

Anyway... I would really like to be a memoirist. I want to write tons and tons and tons of material about my childhood and teenage years especially, but whenever I try to write anything longer than a poem, it starts to become completely twisted and unreadable. I need to find a way to add some structure into my writing without losing my voice. Any help in that direction is greatly appreciated. But, mostly, I just want and need to start writing anything at all here. Which means I will need to edit some of the stuff I have already gotten some work done on.

jashleigh: I am new here. Hi! I am looking forward to posting my writing and getting some detailed constructive feedback. I desperately want to be a published writer.

I think that desperately wanting to be a published writer may be detrimental to actually becoming a published writer.

I was listening to a story not too long ago about a man that asked a Buddhist monk, "How long will it take me to reach enlightenment?" And the monk said "You? 10 years." To which the novice replied, "Ten years?! What if I really really want it and I try really really hard?" "Then it'll take you 20," the monk replied.
