I've recently started classes for a Creative Writing degree. I've enjoyed writing all of my life and since I lost my job (it's been about 4 months) , I am on a new path in pursuing my true happiness which is writing. While I am in school and learning all of the wonderful creative writing things, I would really like to freelance and get my self out there because like in anything, if you don't get out there, you really don't exist. I have so many ideas that I want to do right now from sending a short story or poem to a newspaper or magazine to emailing publishing houses directly. Any writers or creatives out there that can give me some good advice?
