I am a brand new author though I’ve written for as long as I can remember. I often help out a friend of mine who is already an established author, an amazing author – with plot details and when she get’s stuck on a word.
Recently I finished, as in from beginning to end, my first story. Oh, I have hordes that I’ve never been able to finish for one reason or another, but this one I’m quite proud of. I asked my friends opinion about it, letting her read through it of course, and she told me to submit it, now! Pretty much her words on the subject.
I was more than a little unsure about doing it but figured, what the heck, what could it hurt? So, I did it all up nice and pretty and sent it off (she had a recommendation that I went with) and now it’s just a waiting game to see what they think. Who knows, may actually get something out of this.
