    Advice for a new girl?

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Rachie, Apr 8, 2014.

    Hi everybody (if anybody actually reads this!)
    I'm Rachie/Rachel/Rach, whatever your preference!
    I'm 21 and have been writing since I could, well...write, however, recently I've tried to "refine" it I guess.
    I'm interested in writing and it's been my dream since I was little to be published one day. I thought a good way to get advice was to join a forum and see what could be achieved! I know some people on forums have ended up collaborating to get a book of short stories published, and if I can get my work up to scratch, I could never thank you all more for help I received (hoping!!!)
    If anyone has any advice for a new starter, please let me know! Even though I have written for years, and have penned out hundreds of stories/poems, I wouldn't class myself as all too capable just yet!

    Thanks in advance

    Welcome, Rachie. My only advice in addition to the above is to remember that very few of the members here are published writers. It's a good idea to consider this something like a huge study group in which everyone is learning together.

    Good luck in your writing endeavors.
