I would like to introduce you to two sites, actually three that got me rolling. If you decide to sign up at any of them, I would love it if you would PM me and I could send you a referral link. Either way, they are Helium, Associated Content, and Gather. All three pay for your writing and are a great place to get started. Interested in any of them, send me a message and I will get you the full information. Best of luck on your writing.

the biggest tip anyone can give to you for this is go pic up a pen, and write!!! there are things happening all around you and things goping on inside you that you can write about if you just put out 5m to do it in.

If you are interested in publishing a book I would go to book signings and ask authors questions and also go to workshops. If there are any free ones in your area, you should check them out.

I just wish I could really give you very good tips but as it is, I am as lost as you. LOL! So I will just wish you happy writing and may your work will be published one day.
