    Hi I'm new to the site

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Nina B, Apr 5, 2014.

    Hello I just joined the site, and thought I would introduce myself. I am Nina. I have written a lot for myself over the years, but recently decided I needed to get more focussed about it if I am ever going to realise my ambition of becoming a published writer. I have two things on the go at the moment, a novel for which I have the outline devised, chapter by chapter, and a self help sort of book, which I am about 5 k into the first draft. I think my main issue is confidence, am I good enough to get published? Any encouragement appreciated.

    Hello there, Nina!

    It's great to have another member, and I'm sure you'll enjoy it here. :)

    Well judging from this post, your spelling and grammar is good, so that's a strong start. :D You also mention that you've written for yourself for many years, and that's encouraging; if you have the will to write for yourself and keep going, it means a love and passion for words/stories/reading is there. So, are you good enough to be published? No idea - you'll have to stick around and post a piece up here for us to read first. ;) But as I say, if you have a passion and keep writing, then your work will surely improve.

    Keep writing, Nina!

    Hi, Nina, and welcome to the forum :)

    Please have a look through the Forum Rules, and the FAQ as a start.

    This is a good place for aspiring and published writers alike, methinks. I've learned a lot and gained confidence, been inspired time and time again, and met a lot of cool people, so I hope you'll enjoy your stay too :)
