Greetings! Registered several months ago, then forgot about all this completely for a while... I've been a non-professional writer (with perhaps more enthusiasm than skill) for most of my life, and for most of that time with the intent of publishing my own books. I wrote my first novella when I was twelve, I think, and I've written more than more than a few poems, short stories, and one or two full-fledged novels since then. I've been trying to write the same book, the first in a series, for years now, and I keep re-writing it. I'm determined to get it right this time around, and I come hoping those here can help me with that, and that I can return the favor when and where I am able.
