If I want to get serious and try to publish, what would you recommend; poetry or short stories?


I keep hearing that I should try to publish my work, but I really am just a novice hobbyist so I have no idea what would be the best direction to take. For now I am enjoying myself and I can be patient...I am just curious!

    Thanks for that tip, Joanne. I had heard of self publishing but don't know much about it.

    Thanks Will. I am working on a full length novel, but I figured that might be tougher to get published. I agree with the publicity...that's where my patience will need to kick in.
