Writer to Author

Ever since I can remember picking up a pen, I've wanted to write stories.   As a child, I used to write new adventures for my favourite storybook characters (mainly Biff, Chip and Kipper).   
My dream is to one day go from being a writer to becoming an author. I enjoy all styles of writing but generally sway towards fiction for young adults (YA Urban Fantasy Romance) and poetry.  There is always a love interest in my stories.  I guess I'm a romantic at heart. 
There are a lot of people with the same dream as me and I'm hoping that by sharing my journey I will not only get my own book published but hopefully help some other people along the way.  Within my blog I will share how I am getting on and what I learn along the way.  
Getting recognised as a serious writer is tricky as you need to build up your Writers Profile.  To do this, it's a good idea to enter competitions so you have achievements to mention in your query letter.  In my calendar, I share the dates of all competitions I've been made aware of.  Unfortunatley, I don't have the time to enter them all but hope some will be of interest to you.   Please join me in trying to get noticed. 
Best wishes and good luck.
