Hi I'm new to forums and not quite sure what to say. I guess a little about myself to start. I grew up in Michigan with very few friends and reading was my go to way of hiding from life. I read mostly Contemporary Romance and swing towards writing it as well. I've never written anything complete before, I'd start something and then walk away. Recently I've started and almost completed a small Novella of around 22000 words. I love writing and it helps with my anxiety, but I still lack the confidence in myself and in my writing to send it to a publisher. I'm always second guessing myself and psyching myself out. I also tend to ramble and have to pull back, kinda like I'm doing now!!
