Hey I woke up one morning with an idea which I thought was really cool, and after a little bit of fleshing it out, I started writing a novel. (I wrote about 50,000 words in 1.5 months - I'm told that's good, is it?) Since then, I've slowed down a bit so I can fully plan / flesh out the story. I also wrote 3 short stories in which I tried to imitate Lovecraft's style. Anyway, I really want to do this for the rest of my life; I'm loving it. So I started reading up on actually getting stuff published and realized that networking was a good idea. So here I am. Any advice for a 5 month old writer? Either in general, for writing, or for this forum? Thanks for reading.
