Brian Robertson was just months away from graduation at Moore High School in Moore, Oklahoma, last year when he found the beginnings of what he thought was a short story on a school computer. He copied the file to another computer, added some paragraphs to the initial text and then promptly got arrested.

Why don't you write a synopsis and post it here.
I'm sure quite a few of us would be interested in reading it,including me, and you'll get honest feedback to boot.

Just because of the nature of the story. It was a story about a kid who went crazy at school, before it ever even happened. The point is, his story became very famous, and sold many copies. What's wrong with anyone writing something of that nature? Stephen King has said he'd probably flip out kill people for real, if he didn't write his stories. There's nothing wrong with fantasizing about those things, as long as you know they're only fantasies. I used to write about killing kids I hated. Kids who used to beat the crap out of me for no reason, and laugh while they were doing it. They deserved to die, IMO. BUT, I never killed any of them. So, is it a crime to think of such things? Is it a crime to write them down? It shouldn't be.
