Hi, Donna!

If you don't mind my asking, have you ever worked your way through a NaNoWriMo? A reason I ask - they have some guidelines on putting your toe in the publishing water.

(And you could pick the brain of our fearless leader and resident published author, Lou - I'm sure he can answer questions you might have! emoticon )

Hello fellow writers. emoticon

I can't remember a time I wasn't writing. I love it, and I hate it, sometimes on the same day. I write fantasy, horror and a mixture of the two. My rough drafts pile up and one of these days I will send one off and see how it does.

I'm excited to join your group of fellow writers as we all work toward a healthier lifestyle.

Hello, Erika, welcome to the team!

There's nothing I can add to Lou's post - he's covered the bases. Keep us posted on how you get on... :-)

Hi Erika, happy to get to know you. I'm in Orlando, Fla., and have been writing since I was in grade school (still have some papers from then), and now spend time editing books and other materials for authors and businesses, and writing my own books for children.

A novelist friend told me, "If you write, then call yourself a writer!" emoticon

When you think of becoming published, expand your vision from whatever it may be now -- books maybe? -- to:

* Neighborhood, church, association, etc., newsletters

* Letters to the Editor of your local paper and others near you and any you may read online

* My Word columns to newspapers

* Magazine and newspaper articles

What other ideas come to mind?

A few simple suggestions:

* Your SparkPeople blogs count as being published. Use them when you promote yourself.

* Always ensure what you write and submit for the public anywhere ~~ here, Facebook, wherever ~~ is reflective of your being a writer. Use proper capitalization, punctuation, and grammar.

* Have simple business cards printed with your name, email, Facebook address if you like, LinkedIn if you use that networking site.

Wishing you the best of success.

Later,

Lou

Hello all,
My name is Erika and I am a 31 year old from Texas. I have been a part of SparkPeople for years, but keep going back and forth on my tracking. I have always dreamed of being a published writer and have decided recently to work on making that happen so this team sounds like one I would enjoy being a part of. I am a full time student so I have added on a minor in creative writing to help me along a little better.
