Increasing Your Creativity/PLEASE I NEED YOUR HELP


i would be happy if you can help me.I write short stories just for fun, but i write a lot of articles. I also have a lot of ideas  and story line that would be great for the screen. I usually share these ideas and stories with friends and they they always go wild with awe. Recently someone told me to try to put it up in writing and sell. I would love to do this , but i don't know how to, especially in getting an agent. Please i would be happy if you could help me out and put me through. Thanks a lot for your help.

These days it's easy to publish. All you have to do is go to Amazon's publishing site, CreateSpace. it will tell you how to upload your book and sell it via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. You can even order print books to sell at book signings. And it's free.

If you want to go the traditional publishing route that will take more time. You have to decide if you are going to pitch it to an agent and which agents to pitch it to. (Go online and sign up for Query Tracker) and then look up the submission guidelines for each agent. Some will accept e-mail submissions and some want only paper. Some want just a query letter Some some want more.

It's a long process and it can be painful even for the most talented writers. Rejections come far more often than good news. The trick is to keep going despite that. Once a rejection comes in you try again with a new agent or publisher right away.

The reason most aspiring writers never publish is because they give up too soon.

I can't put you through. This is something every writer has to do for his or her self. Good luck and keep writing.
