I joined this forum because of my love of reading and writing. I've never published but I have written a novel, and now working on my second one. I write only fiction work. I hope one day i will feel more confident to look into publishing one of my books. I am new to the writing world. I started writing because it was a get away from the real world. I love the free feeling of writing. I would love to be an author, but have know idea how to get there so my work stays hidden. The only eyes that has ever read my writing are close friends and family, and they tell me how great it is. Although my grammar is bad, maybe a patient editor will help me fix my error. Anyway, I look forward to reading other peoples post so I can learn more about writing and publishing.
