Hi, I'm a new member here and I am looking to try to get some horror stories I am writting published. I was hoping to find a literary agent who could help me get a black flame novel published. www.blackflame.com I am really interested in writting a novel for them. I also write poems. If anyone can help me I need all the help I can get. If anyone would like to add me as a friend they can.

freelance writing
Hello, I am brand new to this Live Journal so please bear with me! I'm looking for the right place to go for someone who is trying to pursue a writing career. I am currently a systems administrator/analyst in the information technology field, but I am trying to find out how to make a career transition. I am also looking for the right community to belong to where I can possibly post some of my writing to get critiques and advice and suggestions and information on pursuing a career in writing. Please let me know if this is the place for me!!! I won't post any writing until I hear from someone; I don't want to waste your time if this is not the right place. Thanks so much!

Terminally Aspiring?
“I think I did pretty well, considering I started out with nothing but a bunch of blank paper.” – Steve Martin

I think this should be the mantra of all writers.

Hello, my name is Courtney. I’m an aspiring writer and still trying to figure out a different name for it that doesn’t sound so pathetic.

Presently, I’ve finished my first book in a series I’m calling “Woven” and almost done with my second installment. When I’m not writing and editing, I’m stalking down literary agents and begging them to read my manuscript.

So far no one wants to see more than the first three chapters, but that’s something right?

Anyway, glad to be hear and I hope it will be a positive, supportive experience.

How Tiny
A group for writers to rant about they're writing and it's just a handful of us.

How intimate and charming.

Hi guys, can I come and play? :-)

X - Posted all over the shop [gotta get the word out, you know?]

Hi - I hope this is alright to post, if not, feel free to delete.

I'm auctioning off 10 mint copies of the industry magazine Publishers Weekly as well as an issue of Writers Digest. These are very recent issues and have never been read. I'm sure you know how expensive a subscription to PW is, but the information contained is the very latest from the publishing world. Any writer would find that invaluable.

Please note my 100% feedback and that I ship worldwide.


Thanks for your time!
