    Hi, Welcome to Hubpages.

    Just start writing.  Write about anything you like. Maybe things that you find interesting, your hobbies, life in general. The more you write, the better you get.  Once your feeling confident, there are a lot of publishers out there that you can approach or cut out the publisher and publish an ebook on-line. 

    I must say Hubpages is a good Forum to start though. Good luck smile

    So. you want to be a writer, eh?  OK.  For one thing, try using proper English.  Capitalized letters exist for a reason.  Authors cannot be ture to themselves unless they worship the power of expression through language.  Words are our tools.  As such they should be maintained in pristine condition, not bent to the point of disrespecting proper punctuation.

    Now, to be a writer, you must write - all the time.  Write about your experiences, your thoughts, your fears and desires.  Write about your relationships and your goals, your mistakes and your successes.  Keep a diary.  Write poetry spontaneously.  When you witness beauty, capture it with words.  When you are subject to terror, write about the feeling of helplessness and fear.   One day, your skills will have coalesced. You will be published.

    Most imprtantly, capture the environment with your senses and describe it in detail.  We do not interact with the world and humanity in a vacuum, so good writers explain what it feels like during any time or place.  The weather could be freezing, windy, boiling, baking, drizzling, dusty, dry, pouring, muggy, sultry and perfectly charming.  It could be crowded, isolated, dull or exiciting.  But it all must be compelling for the reader to travel there with you. 

    Dialog comes last.  It can be painstaikingly slow, but dialog is necessary, intriguing, enthralling and captivating.  It enhances the story, making it believable and offering a foundation for thought.  Proper use of dialog will inspire deep character development.  Use it to define your characters and to make them realistic.  Sometimes, this can involve research into differing languages or dialects.  Suspense and agitation are revealed through dialog, just the same as passion and desire. 

    Good luck, "amberterrien."  I think that you will be a great writer.

    You might need the help of your parents.  I don't know, if you are a minor, that you would be able to get an adsense, ebay, kontera and amazon account.

    Can you tell a story?

    It takes years of submission and rejections before you can take that advice and use it.

    Mine took 30 years. I may not be typical. I took time off to work.
