View Full Version : Hello All

Just another new writer popping his head onto the forum. Well, I'm not actually that new to writing, I've been writing for almost three years now, but am just now trying to get work published. Which in comparison to writing a novel is a dark and scary task.
I've written one novella, three novels, and am halfway through a sequel. My first two works needed heavy revision and not really of publishable quality, my third attempt I thought was very good, but rough, and is still in the editing process, while my fourth I'm actually trying to get published. I'm sure you'll see me on the query and and agent related forums.
My thanks to everyone for putting this community together.

Hi Christopher. It's great to meet you. I, like you, came here with a huge bag of written material that wasn't publish-worthy. I learned so much and it helped me to polish and refine my stories to where they're ready.
It's a sometimes sobering journey, but the people here have much great advice to give, and are very generous in helping others along the way.
