Where I Began

I have wanted to be a published writer since I can remember.  Unfortunately, like with most things in my life, if I wasn’t sure how to go about doing it, I mainly just waited around and hoped it would happen magically.

Luckily, I grew out of that stage and finally began to seriously and consciously pursue publication.  Still, it was a process to get here, and probably the first step in actually trying to get published and thinking it was at all possible was a writing website community I joined my freshman year of college.

I have no idea how I stumbled upon writing.com (formerly stories.com), but I became an involved and devoted member.  I became a moderator for a while, edited one of their weekly newsletters, joined groups, reviewed and even upgraded my membership.  (A pretty big deal since I am CHEAP).

I still have my portfolio up on writing.com, though admittedly I don’t spend much time their anymore.  Still, it was a great place to start and it got me on the road to where I am.

If you’re new to the writing world, I would highly recommend joining writing.com.  Even with just a free basic membership, you can get a lot out of the site and, more importantly, the community.
