One of my friends recently published himself and we have been writing for about the same amount of time. I decided, pretty recently, that I really wanted to go somewhere with my writing. Upon talking to my uncle I decided that I should try a forum. I figured it was a good place to start and get feedback on my writing, from people other than those i see on a regular basis and hold close to my heart. So could someone explain to to me how this all works? And would you mind helping out a young and hopeful writer?
