Hello from Claire. I'm a newbie which is amusing because I'm not young at all.
The Second Serious Try to Write
I have just finished writing, eight years of process, a novel. It badly needs
revision. I badly need a break.
Taking off time to write some short stories.Finished one this weekend and realize I don't have
a clue as to where an appropriate market is. I'm no literary stylist, but neither am I a
genre writer. I guess I'm a humanist story-teller, try to write from heart, and know a lot
about the noir side of life.
Wrote a 5,000 light piece I just had fun doing. But, ARUGH, where to send. There are
so many on-line sites. How to know which is reasonably appropriate for me.
Well, happy 2012 to all writers. It's a strange gift we have--this desire to write.
