I joined up last night and immediately started posting replies without introducing myself. Oops. Oh well I've done it now. I'm Laura and although I class myself as a writer I haven't had anything published. But then I've never sent anything out to get rejected. Do you only become a writer once you've set yourself up for rejection or is the moment you pick up the virtual pen and start trying? I'm hoping reading the forums will help my style improve, I've picked up some great tips from other threads already!
