Hi everyone I'm very new to this site and would like to say hello and ask for a little advice. I absolutely love reading and would love to be able to write a novel or short stories. Its an ambition of mine. I just don't know how to go about it or where to start. Is it just a case of putting pen to paper and as they say just starting. Sit down and start... I'm looking for advice on how to get started, courses I should do if any, websites to look at for advice or check in to regularly. Anything really? Just advice from people with more experience than me. Should I be writing down all my ideas all the time, any where that's good for ideas, research I should be doing? Thank you.. Jellytots..
