Hello folks! I've had the idea to write for a very long time, mostly all my life. I'm mid-forties now and remember attempting to write as a teenager. Decades later I've once again, started on my first piece. I'd like to call it a novel but I am so green to the concept of putting an actual novel together, for now, I'll refer to it as my "piece" of work. Perhaps this forum will get me past more than one chapter. In fact, I have just completed my first chapter so before I move on, or waste precious time, I'd like to gain more knowledge. It's time. I'm not sure what to ask and I know someone probably already has asked it somewhere within this forum so for now I will explore the posts and learn as I go. Funny thing is I enjoy writing, but not so much reading. How does that work? Good to be here.
