I'm such a newbie to all of this. I am here to learn, and I have a tough skin. I had a story in my head a few years back that needed letting out short of drilling a hole in my head, so I wrote it down. It started as a bedtime story I wrote for my daughters many years ago. They wanted me to finish it, but I realized I needed the backstory. That was my first novel. I self-published on Amazon, sold a few copies then pulled it for a rewrite. Since then I've been a bit shell-shocked and have just been writing and reading. Well I now have three WIPs. the first one I am still rewriting. The second is in the final stages, just looking for a few reviews before I release it. The third is in first draft stage. I have four more in conception stage, but I have those on hold. Fortunately I have bled enough of them from my skull to prevent them dominating my focus...for now.
