I've been working on a novel for over a year now, and have been writing short stories for my own amusement all my life. I've never attempted getting any of those published, but I hope to find a market for my novel. But before I do that, I have to prove to myself that I can finish the thing. Does anyone else out there write fiction as a hobby? Are there any good websites for amateur writers? It's kind of a lonely undertaking, and it would be nice to find a supportive writing community online. Any suggestions would be welcome!
