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

it was inevitable
Hello everyone! I'm new to AW, and surprised I didn't find this place sooner.
I have always loved to write, but I was too unsure of my work to show anyone. Last year I applied to a decent university in NYC for creative writing and got accepted. I didnt end up going, though. Instead I pursued my other passion, culinary and pastry arts.
I love the decision I made, and I love my school. But I couldn't stay away from writing. After a year of not producing anything I have begun again. I even signed up for a creative writing course at my local college for the spring.
