So i posted a short story on AW. I was extremely nervous about it but i think the feedback was very constructive. It also has given me some food for thought about my writing and my current WIP. i think i've a long way till i'm publishable but i'm happy to just start.
So, perhaps i'll play around with this and see what happens. . .
EDIT: thought this was an encouraging and depressing article lol "why new novelists are kinda old" - encouraging because like a good wine, a writer matures with age (and practice), depressing because nothing with writing is 'quick'
