    I guess this is where we begin!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Bocere, Sep 27, 2015.

    Good Morning all!

    My name is Mallory and I am very new to the world of forums, so I'm excited to get involved with all of you creative folks!

    For my "day job" I currently work in the office of the Registrar at a local university. I like it well enough but my passion has been in writing since day one, so I started just jotting ideas down, which grew into a story which then grew into a novel manuscript...then four.

    The writing itself has been wonderful and therapeutic and everything I hoped it would be, but I'm at a point now where I want to try to share it with a wider audience than just family and friends. I've just started the querying process in the last few weeks, and whoo boy is it ROUGH out there. The experience so far is showing me just how woefully unprepared I seem to be, so I am really hoping to read a lot here, join in some fruitful discussions and find some support in this community, where I'm sure many of you have faced these same challenges before.

    Happy writing and happy reading, friends!

    Mallory

    Well congrats on putting yourself out there! I've heard the query letter process can be a hard one! Don't give up and good luck!

    I look forward to seeing what you've written! I am new to writing, but hope to learn a lot from all these wonderful people on this forum.

    Welcome!
