A publisher or agency using Google ads to solicit your novel probably isn't anyone you want to write for.

Hi, My name is Bob, and I'm new to writing. It would be nice if I could publish something sometime, but I think for now it's best that I learn as much as I can. I have a lot of questions, but I suppose I can ask them in the other areas of this forum, like: What did writers do before the internet and computers!
Nice to meet you, cyber-speaking.

Welcome. I'm with you. I can't imagine writing without a computer and without all the great advice you can find for free online without leaving the comfort of your home.
There is something to be said for writing books, though. They are still useful.
