Keep writing. I wake up super early just to make sure I'm actively and relentlessly pursuing my dream. I'd like to be published

Greetings fellow writers. I saw this team and thought perhaps I might be inspired me to get back to writing my novel again. I am PhD student so writing is often a drag. I have lost about 40lb on my journey and I have 30 more to lose. I believe in the work hard --play hard method. Right now I am training for a 5k. Things have been. A bit crazy in my life (check out my blog) but I keep pushing. I am looking forward to meeting everyone.

Hello! My name is the_little_lady. I am a contributing editor for a religious newspaper, a writer for a website, etc. I would like to have fellowship with fellow writers and the fitness part of it. I have been looking up chair yoga and chair tai chi this evening. I am team leader for Sparkteam "Merry FITmas" and by the time the day is over, it's like, where did the time go? Our motto is to get in 10 minutes each day. So, with chair exercises, I can have my cake and eat it too. Know what I mean? I hope to make some good friends in this team and a good kick in the pants if I need it!

Thanks!

George, it sounds as if you need to become more knowledgeable about the publishing business. There are numerous books available via your library, bookstore, or online that detail the steps to getting a book to market. It's not only the traditional well-known publishers anymore, but also print-on-demand outlets, and others that are available to get a book into print.

Start reading Writer's Digest magazine. If you buy copies or subscribe, the cost and any mileage to and from, say, a bookstore are tax deductible. Also study Writer's Market, which lists many hundreds of outlets for everything from greeting card verses to books. It's a bit pricey at about $30.00 but also deductible, as are other writing related expenses. Maybe ask for the book or magazine subscription for Christmas or your upcoming birthday.

Your library should have copies of both of these resources to get you started as well as a section devoted to learning the craft.

If you're on Facebook, there are many writer's groups you can check out.

Start with these things. You'll have more questions as you learn about the publishing and marketing sides of the business.

Above all ~~ keep writing!

Thanks everyone! I love the warm welcome.

Well Lou, I guess I'm just interested to know more about the process. Once I have a manuscript, what are the steps I need to take to get my work published? I'm specifically aiming at a Young Adult market, with a sci-fi thriller.

emoticon GEORGEVALTOM and emoticon to SparkPeople and the team...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Greetings everyone! You can see my username, but I'll tell you anyways that I'm George Valtom! I'm a couple of weeks into Sparkpeople and I've been looking around for a writing team!

I've had experience with writing fanfiction, and in fact I signed a small contract with DreamWorks this summer to write a couple of videos for their YouTube channel. I'm currently looking at publishing a proper novel, which is 20% of the way completed right now.

Happy to be here!
