Hi everyone

This is my first foray into a writer community forum. I am a longtime student of literature and a voracious reader. I love to write but have never published - it has always been more of a hobby. My working life has been spent in the business world, but I am now looking forward to something new. Hence, I have decided to wade into the depths of freelance writing. At the moment, the process appears somewhat intimidating and the web information concerning such a venture feels overwhelming. Self-doubt and imagined inadequacy tend to batter the ramparts of my confidence. I was more confident writing my doctoral dissertation in English Literature. (Maybe because that was for a select audience of known individuals.)

Anyway, I am looking forward to being a member of this community. Hopefully I can make some positive contributions. And hopefully, over time, I can gain some insights and advice with regard to my new path into the freelance writing world.
