Don’t just dive in

As a wise man once said to me.
“Start off slow and write short stories and get them published first, if you try to start off with a novel, you will fail”
This is not hurtful to a lot of people because it’s true, publishers will not take a novel if it is the first thing you have ever written, you need to have archives of short stories in the vault that people know of and have read.
After so many short stories that you feel comfortable with writing a novel and showing it to others, feel free to do so. But remember, you need almost a library of short stories and other assorted things in writing before you even consider about showing a publishing company your manuscript for your novel, i’m not trying to be hurtful, but if you don’t have an archive of short stories, they won’t even bother to read your story.
