    I've self published before on Associated content, and have been writing for Fifteen years, taking as many english and creative writing classes I can and for the most part I write for myself. Yesterday I sat down at the end of the Michigan game and wrote something new, something I think I can market.

    Without an alarm I woke up again around 6ish with the idea still burning in my memory and so far I've churned out close to 11,000 words of the story line and thinking I am halfway done. With this one......

    It's something that I could definitely do a series about. There are 3-4 main characters you meet in the first book and that second I've already got ideas for involves more directly the two of them.

    I can see this being small novelettes or novellas in a series and I am writing for the 12+ crowd in mind. Everything I've ever heard tells me I need a literary agent to be serious about being published. So...... Any tips, advice etc?

    The best website for writers is absolutewrite.com.

    Warning: the forums there are as addictive as BYC!

    No "useful" advise, but you're funny as heck, and I just wanted to give out a "go for it".

    This is as "published" as most of us get. Best wishes!

    True, but as noted it was giggle inducing.
