I'm completely new to this industry so I really can't make any predictions. I have many goals for 2016 though.

1. I plan to put my nose to the grindstone and finish my first book.
2. Find an affordable editor and book cover.
3. Learn the ins and outs of publishing on Kindle and possibly other platforms.
4. Start working on my next ideas.

Thank you! It's definitely time to get back into reading. I miss it. Less gaming and more reading and writing.

Welcome Aaron.
Glad you found your way to the KB.
Hope you find friends here.

My friend Intinst used to post this info, hope it helps:
       Greetings and Welcome!! We are so glad you found KBoards, an independent resource for people who own or have interest in Kindle, whether readers or writers.(Really, there are many members who are not writers!) We have many areas that you probably will like. Have you been to The Book Corner yet?  That's the area for Reader discussions - share your book reviews and recommendations, and new discoveries. That's also where you will find threads about books Recommended by our Members and a Book Lover's Link Threadipedia designed to help both Newbies and Oldbies find some of the various resources, suggestions and recommendations available in the Book Corner and on the internet in general.
      Then there is the Book Bazaar where our member/authors post about their books and the Writers' Cafe that has discussions about writing, publishing and many other topics from the writers point of view. The Bazaar is also where you will locate Bargain Books and even Free Books threads where you can get reading material at low or no cost! The Cafe also has the New KBoards Yellow Pages -- for author (and reader) services.
      If you have a question about your Kindle or it's usage, check out the forum about Tips, Tricks and Trouble Shooting . Or, just ask your question. We have many helpful and knowledgeable people here at KB and we feel there is no such thing as a "dumb" question. Questions about KBoards may be answered at  Forum tips. If not, once again, ask away! To keep everything running smoothly, we ask that everyone read Forum decorum. There are a few points there particularly for authors.  Further questions from authors concerning KB may be answered here: Tips, FAQs and Useful Threads for Authors
      Another popular place is Let's Talk Kindle, where all things in the Kindle world are posted about. Be sure and check out the Photo Gallery, where pictures of members, pets, flowers, landscapes or just almost anything interesting can be found. Also, the Accessories area can be fun. There you will see information about covers, skins, lights, bags, stands and many other items to allow you to personalize your Kindle.
      Looking to just kill some time while you are waiting for your Kindle or if you have your kindle, want to try something different? Try INFINITY Game - Word Association or The "INFINITY" Thread: KEEP POSTING...Ready, Set,... GO!!! in the Not Quite Kindle area.
Thank you! I'll be sure to check them out!

Hello everyone,

I'm new here. I just wanted to say hi to everyone. I'm trying to get used to the forums and I've been lurking for a bit. I'd like to get more active and involved with conversations and hopefully make some new friends.

A little about myself. I used to be an avid reader in high school and my late teen years but that has been over 6 years ago. I think I've finished only a few books since then. It's always been my dream to write novels and other sorts of fiction but life got in the way. I've also spent entirely too much time playing video games and partying. I think I am finally at a point in my life where I want to "grow up" as painful as that is for me to admit. I want to do more with my life.

So here I am starting fresh. I feel like I have done myself a great disservice by depriving my mind of books and writing. I feel like my mind has actually went downhill slightly. My reading speed is slower but I've never been an incredibly fast reader. My spelling seems affected by auto-correct too. That bothers me.

I seem to go through phase after phase of wanting to do this or do that and nothing has really stuck. I guess I have commitment issues and a lack of patience but I seriously want to commit to writing and start reading again. I am trying to write everyday, even if it's just for a minute. I am working on a zombie novel to get into the swing of things. Sitting at 8000 words at the moment. I've been reading some other zombie authors on Kindle as well. Mark Tufo's Zombie Fallout series is fantastic and I can't help but feel like it puts my writing to shame. I am discouraged easily but I am trying to stay positive and motivated in order to hone my craft.

Thanks for reading. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone here.

- Aaron
