"your first Novel"

Today I purchased a book titled "your first Novel" by Ann Rittenburg and Laura Whitcomb. I plan to read through this book to help me prepare for my journey into writing. I have written many things throughout the years, but have never really completed anything or compiled anything into one solid piece of work. I have an idea and I plan to create something worthy of at least one set of eyes to read and enjoy.

The following books are also in my possession to assist in my venture:

On Writing by Stephen King, a Memoir of the Craft;
Chicken Soup for the Writer's Soul by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Bud Gardner;
The Joy of Writing Sex, A Guide for Fiction Writer's by Elizabeth Benedict.

The last book was a gift given to my by a friend who claimed I had a way with words. I guess I need to address every avenue to see what I am good at.

With luck, the coming year will be full of successful writing attempts.
