first off, what do you guys write? poems, short stories, novels, screenplays? do you participate in any writer's meet ups? who'd you share your work with? how do you ensure your writing is progressing? have you (or currently) taken any writing courses/programs? how do you get your stuff out there? i'd like to write novels and screenplays. my most "prominent" work, if you could call it that, is 35 pages of my first attempt at a novel. i see a writer in me, and feel like i got a story in me to write... that's the main reason i want to write. however, i don't really have much credentials to show for it. at least for now.
