My name is Vicky. I have started writing again after many years. I wrote a lot as a teenager. I had a binder full of poems and short stories. Someone said they were taking it to a publisher to see if they wanted anything and I never got it back. That just stopped me right there. But I am starting over. I am going to write a novel. I have wanted to do it my whole life. I have no training or anything, but am gonna do my very best. This is a great site. Thanks for all the comments so far.
