Sorry about the spam folks. I have removed it and reported it to the LJ officials. Hope no one was offended by that junk.

Title: Taboo (NOT FINISHED!)
Genre: Romance.  What else?
Fiction Type: idk yet.  Just a couple paragraphs right now
Rating: teen...pg13 movie I would say
Contains: a thunderstorm.  And Strong, STRONG sexual references
Status: First Draft.  And it's incomplete.

Title: ???
Genre: Romance
Fiction Type: Short story, eventually
Rating: It's a little saucy, and yet pretty mild.  I think it would be more appreciated by older audiences.
Contains: a shower scene.  A very yummy shower scene..
Status: Unfinished, but I'm quite proud of what I've got.

Since I have a lot of spare time to do nothing but daydream while I study abroad, I've started to write two romance stories.  One is more well developed than the other, but they're both NOT finished and I only get around to writing a paragraph a day.  I'm a little stuck, so ANY ideas would be absolutely lovely.  Cheers! Anything you can do to help, whether its a title or an idea to pursue, is much, MUCH appreciated.  In the language of my adoptive home for the next month and a half, bedankt!

Hey guys! My name’s Diana, and I’m also a member of Gather.com. I wanted to let you know about this awesome competition in which the prize is a publishing contract! Have any of you ever written a novel-length manuscript in the romance genre? If so, you might want to check this out.

The competition works sort of like American Idol. You have until August 22 to send in your full-length manuscript, and to post the first chapter in the group First Chapters Romance Writing Competition. After August 27, other users on Gather will vote on the chapters they like best. 25 authors will move onto round two, and further voting will narrow it down to the cream of the crop.

Five finalists will have the chance to win a guaranteed publishing contract, along with a $5000 cash advance! You can go to First Chapters Romance Writing Competition for more info.  This sounds like an awesome opportunity; I wish I had a finished manuscript of my own! For all of you who do, I just wanted to bring this to your attention.

The magazine for artists and writers made by artists and writers.

What makes our magazine so special? Our goal is to help other artists and writers perfect their skills. We want to give you the tools that will help you grow and improve your craft. Whether you're a hobbyist that just loves to create images for your personal enjoyment or a published author looking for something more out of your writing, Art&Prose is for you.

Every issue is filled with articles on writing and art, reviews of the latest software, books, and other tools we think are useful (or not), and tutorials that will show you easy steps to be more creative. We find artists and writers who want to showcase their work and present it to you in every issue. No matter what genre of writing or style of art, you can find it here.


Accepting Submissions
All stories should be 3000 words or less. Longer stories will be considered on a case by case basis. Send your FINAL DRAFT stories in *.doc or *.rtf format to our editorstaff@artandprose.com.

We will pay $10US for each story or article we print by way of PayPal.

I am the prose editor for the ezine.

So we have 21 members (woohoo) but we don't have a lot of activity. Does anyone have any ideas as to what would encourage people to join and/or post? I do promise to comment on stories that are posted, even if they aren't what I look for in a romantic fiction. I'll try to post more often myself but I don't want to do a monopoly of the posts. Thank you to those that have posted thus far. Let me know what you think!

“Who does that jerk think he is? Well he just lost the best thing that has ever happened and ever will happen to him. And if he thinks I’m ever coming back to him, he’s insane. I don’t care if he apologizes and buys the biggest bouquet of roses, he’ll never have me back,” Rachel poured out to her friend while trying to fight back the tears.

“You’re completely right Rachel,” she responded linking elbows with Rachel. “And as your best friend I am going to take you out for a night that will get you to forget about him and to see that you can be happier without that idiot.” She dragged Rachel, who was feigning resistance, toward the door.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope that you all had a safe and happy holiday. I hope that 2006 will see this humble community grow to be a thriving and helpful resource for romantic fiction writers and readers. I encourage anyone that has any romantic fiction to submit it to the community and be the first fiction posted. Otherwise I might have to subject you to my work...

Hurray for 2006!
