Hey out there I am new to the mylot. I am looking to hook up with other people who love to write. Whether you have become a published author or are just starting to write your first novel. I have one novel and one learning tool book finished. I just need to have an artist for the learning tool. I am a published author, I've had three poesms published and won 7 th place in a short story contest that took the judges an extra month to decide who was the top ten. Just would like to see how other people are doing out there.

There are many writers here on mylot and this place has become known as our chatting box where we discuss different writing techniques and show off some of our writing for others to see. I am a freelance writer and have also written a few short stories in my younger days. I was published in the California newspaper when I was in the second grade for a story that I had written. I started my journey as a writer there. the story was cute and had to do with my sister. I won the contest out of all the schools in California. since then, I have went on to publish a few e-books but mainly focus on writing articles for now. I also started over a dozen blogs that have picked up within the last six months and will soon be writing a book about my son who was killed when he was six years old. Is there any place that I can find your writing so that I can check it out, send me an email if there is.

I too am a writer. I write personal experience articles, opinion pieces, mystery short stories. I had my first piece of poetry published when I was 13 and my second when I was 17. I had alot of poems published in my school newspaper. Got my first opinion piece published when i was 23 and after that had 4 more articles published. Had an article published in True Confessions. I have written two novels but neither one was good enough to get published they both needed alot of improvement. Right now I am sending out articles to various magazines and maybe thinking of dipping my hand in childrens writing. I am looking for some friends who like to write.

I'm a writer. I have three completed feature length screenplays and a hand full of short stories. I'm currently working on edits of a Novel and writing a self-help/personal philosophy book. I've yet to get anything significant published. I self published a series of comic books when I was in collge but that eventually folded. I'm hoping that when I finsh the edits on the novel that I'll find a good publisher for it and finally have something on the market that will sell, but we'll have to wait and see.

Just sent you a friend request. I too am a writer looking to network with other writers. You can find info about me and my writing on my blog at http://eknano.blogspot.com Mostly I write short stories: 5,000 - 10,000 words, in horror and sci-fi. A few are published, others are floating around waiting to be published. I also write plays and ballets. I have yet to get any of them produced on stage, but that is my goal for this year.

I have always loved to write but only started doing so seriously about a year ago. Mostly I write short articles on subjects that interest me: health issues, gardening, collectibles, pets, crafting, home and personal safety. I have published many articles on Associated Content and also sell through Constant Content. I am beginning to look into submitting articles to magazines and newspapers. I also write Christian poetry.
