The field of writing is relatively new to me. I have been a part of FanStory since the end of 2014. Before that, I never tried to get anything "out" except to family and friends. (Not all of them have been so positive!) I don't write often because I am so busy but I am VERY anxious to get feedback to see if I should lay down my quill!

    schatzling: I just wanted to personally thank you from the bottom, the middle, and the top (smile) of my heart for selecting my drawing to accompany your poem entitled "What Should I Believe". I enjoyed reading your poem.
    I liked it a lot. Thanks again.not only for selecting my drawing but for your comment as well. So many times photos or artwork gets selected and the person who actually took the photo or drew the Art fails to get mentioned at all, which is actually quite sad, least I think so. Therefore, I just wanted to let you know how much I truly appreciate you doing that.

Dr. Nad: I have never tried to publish anything. How would I go about doing that?

    Elizabeth Quigley: You must submit. Which mags. do you think publish similar material? Find them on internet and they will have a page listing their requirements. You can submit to more than 1 at a time but if you are accepted by 1, you must notify other place where you have submitted immediately.

    Don't get discouraged. Almost all authors have to submit numerous times before being accepted. Being accepted can be result of editor's mood, number of submissions, etc.
    An editor can receive literally hundreds to thousands of submission, so luck is also involved. BUT, nothing ventured, nothing gained! Good luck!

    DIS-illusioned: Go to a publishing house, point out someone you think knows what they're doing, hand your manuscript to this professional and say, "Publish this!"
    If that doesn't work, try another publishing house ....
    Good luck! :-)

    Word Junkie: It depends on what you want published. My advice to you is to find a good book at Amazon that covers the ins and outs of publishing, explaining your options, and so forth and so on. There's more than one path to publication. Some are more fruitful and gratifying than others. Scroll through the reviews at Amazon, and buy that book.

    Good luck!

    As of May, 2007, Mr. Lukeman has made his e-book HOW TO WRITE A GREAT QUERY LETTER free, as a way to give back to the writing community. This file includes Mr. Lukeman's two books HOW TO LAND (AND KEEP) A LITERARY AGENT and ASK A LITERARY AGENT, also free!

    ShyWri: Are you in Atlanta or Athens? If Athens, take a sample of what you'd like to have published to Will Walton at Avid Books and ask for pointers. He is a published novelist and might be able to point you to a good agent. He can also tell you about a self-publishing company that small book sellers use. If you're in Atlanta, there must be a lot of good agents.

Dr. Nad: Does anybody ever read this or am I sending this out into cyberspace?
December 30, 2014 at 5:35AM
    adewpearl: At least some of us scroll the profile comment thread in the forums, so yes, at least several people read it :-) Happy New Year!

    Dr. Nad:
    WoW-------- AND some people respond instantaneously as Well. (I believe that is why YOU are #1)

    IndianaIrish: Lots of members read through the forum and read the Profile Thoughts or click on Profile Thoughts from the Community tab at the top of the page. But it might go out into Cyberville, too.
    December 30, 2014 at 8:00AM
    Adri7enne: Sure, lots of us read the profile thoughts. Happy New Year!
    December 30, 2014 at 10:39AM
    gypsycaravan: Happy New Year, Dr. Nad. A few of us are curious as to the thoughts of our fellow fanstorians. Ha
    December 30, 2014 at 10:49AM
    Selina Stambi: Curiosity killed the cat ... but I'm popping in too! Hope you had a great Christmas, Dr. Nad. Joy and peace to you in 2015.
    December 30, 2014 at 5:40PM
    DIS-illusioned: No, no one ever reads this. But, if you were to receive a response from an alien world, don't be alarmed. It's only my ex from the laptop in her asylum.
    As a doctor, could you please check on her? Merci!

    LoannaLois: I'm checking in, too....I always want to hear what friends have to say."Happy New Year"

    Lovinia: Sometime my thought end in cyberspace ... and others I receive some welcome visitors. :))
    Good timing for a Happy New Year visit. Wishing you joy, peace and good health for 2015.
    Welcome to FS ... I'm sure you'll enjoy your experience here. :))) Lovinia xoxo

    Dr. Nad: Thanks to everyone who responded to my initial offering on my profile page. I don't have a clue where you picked it up from or how I would pick up on yours unless I went to your personal profile page. BBBUUUUUTTTTT LET ME SAY THIS!!!!
    Over the years since I have had a computer I have looked several times for a place to submit my VERY INFREQUENT poetry to see if ANYONE, (besides me), liked what I have written. At the end of October I found several Poetry sites but I didn't want to pay my good money for the privilige of submitting my stuff and never hearing from anyone about it. I decided to join a site (Nameless because I don't remember the Name), but it was so convoluded to join it spit me out. I did get an email saying they saw where I had tried to submit my credit card. No offer of help or I would have gone with them. On November 1, 2014 I took some of my birthday money and joined something called FanStory. My family has never been into poetry or really encouraged me in mine, (I am probably alone in this, LOL). But YOU MY FRIENDS, have told me NOT to put my quill down, THANKS !!! YOU have made me BELIEVE that I am not just the typical parent that thinks their kid is stronger, cuter, more intelegent and better in every way than they are. I have just put out the first poem, (That Silly Age Spot on my NOSE), I have ever tried to do what you have encouraged me to do; COUNT SYLABLES. It doesn't seem to flow for me as well as my old style of :"Willy Nilly". OH well . . . as much as I have written on this entry I KNOW CYBERSPACE AND I ARE THE ONLY ONES STILL READING so I'm out!

    Dr. Nad: I sure am confused about this writing here. How would anyone see this?
    January 12, 2015 at 11:15PM
    TOMORAL: Definitely should NOT lay down your quill. You have been given quite a talent. I didn't start writing until I was 59 years old.
    February 11, 2015 at 3:46PM
    Dorothy Farrell: Just read your shortest poem ever Dr Nad and popped in to say hello. I don't think you have anything to worry about - already two wins, well done! I read your poem a while back about the age spot on your nose. I loved it but thought you must be an old man. I'm looking at your picture - you fooled me - you are a spring chicken. LOL. Regards Dorothy
    February 22, 2015 at 3:29PM
    Dr. Nad: Well Dorothy, Pictures are deceiving. What you see in my profile pic encapsulated my wife and me in 1978. My kids and grandkids would tell you. . . I am an old man.
