Hello All

New to the site. I am from New Mexico, and all my writing has consisted to writing in journals, to express my personal feeling and to let steam off sometimes. I have been doing that for many years. I have no degree to speak of. I do like writing and my brother came over the other week and read some of my journals, and told me. If I write all the time as a hobby why don't I actually try to write a book. Wasn't sure if he was joking or serious. Than I thought on it for sometime and decided he was right. So here I am.


Peace

Hi Dale,

I am pretty new here myself but wanted to welcome you. Your story sounds very similar to mine. I have been writing weekly inspirational or motivational threads for a hep C web site that I belong to for about two years now and still counting.

There was much prodding from the other members of that site for me to write a book. They all just thought that I had a knack for it and that I should give it a try.

Being a person who believes that the only bad idea is one that is not tried, I decided to take them serious. But then I wondered what I would write this book about. And then one day while I was camping, an idea hit me that I really thought might be good.

And now I have just passed page 400 in the first draft of a fiction novel. I am brand new at this but feel that I have found the proper web site right here to help me through this work.

I wish you luck and hope that you too will find that one idea that inspires you to write that book! I have found the writing to be a very enjoyable experience so far and I hope that you discover the same.

Good luck and again, Welcome!

Chuck

Hello and welcome to the community, Dale. Just a suggestion. WF is very much a give and take site, meaning if you want critiques/comments on your work, you have to give 'em. Enjoy!
