I'm writing this on my iPad so please forgive any errors. I joined this site on a whim because I have been interested in writing short stories for a few years now. Maybe a full novel could evolve from one in the future . My only problem is I have no formal background and absolutely no idea how to get started! I'll just keep this brief and ask if NE one has links to a thread that could help me get rolling in the right direction. My favorite generes are military SF and psychological thrillers. Also, any advice or words of wisdom for a newbie would be greatly appreciated!
