Riting as a Resolution? (1 Viewer)



Hello everyone. My name is Rob and I am not totally sure why I am here. I have never written anything before, besides the stuff I was forced to in high school and college, but I have always wanted to. I am 24, in the military, and looking for a constructive of my time in 2008. I don't have the slightest clue of even where to begin. Should I write fiction or non-fiction? Poetry or Prose? Novel or short-story? I am not sure and that is part of the reason why I am here, I am looking for guidance and help. Thank you and I hope everyone had a great christmas and new year's day.
