Hey, Everyone! Can't Post

Hello,
My name is Gitana Deneff and I'm an aspiring writer and I just thought that I would introduce myself on here as a way of getting some of my work out. I plan on studying English and Philosophy in college and hopefully can become a successful writer as I progress.
Perhaps you can help give me some insight or critique and check out some of the things I've written on my blog: www.xoxotani.wordpress.com. It would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Re: [xoxotani] Hey, Everyone! [In reply to] Can't Post

Welcome, Gitana. (Cool name.)

I just read an article by Michael Klein in Poets & Writers about being a successful writer. Sometimes it depends on having a day job (he's been a legal assistant for the last 20 years, during part of which time he was my MFA advisor). Keep that in mind, and keep writing.

The best advice for becoming a good writer, aside from writing, is reading. Read everything, what you like, what's challenging, what you would never pick up.

Thank you, everyone! And Ismael I absolutely love reading! So I'm definitely hoping that it will help me in the near future! I'm reading pretty much everything I can get my hands on! I have a reading list a mile long right now!
