blackcitadel, writing is all about practice. Having the ability to use proper grammar and spell is a great boost to writing. If you want to write, you don't need to necessarily have an idea. All you need to do is sit down and write.
see someone actually submit something that is SO bad in its grammar and punctuation, plot and characters, that it will make you feel SICK. It has happened before, it will happen again.WILL

We have the magic and technology.
Just can't stop someone from writing a crappy plot though... wonder if we can change that?
Wait, grammar in poetry?
I have hundreds of pages of setting for about four different "planned literary masterpieces," as well as a first edition AD&D milieu I just started formulating (and am rushing to put together before session-time arrives), and I've noticed all my writing deals with one subject: the idea that man is greater in capacity than God(s), and the story revolves around the ascension of a mortal to a position that is morally greater than the gods he must serve. Even my D&D campaign is this way.
