Hey guys. My name is Ben and I live in Portsmouth. I hope you can help me in my quest to become a published author.
Hi Ben, and welcome to the site. If you submit some work, hopefully you will receive useful critique and enjoy the mutual benefits of the interaction. Some of us are just hoping that receiving critique at this level is not obligatory, that we can present and improve our work ourselves too, using only the encouraging feedback and openness of others. That is all we have questioned.
Hello Ben and welcome. Although members will be keen to help in your endeavour what will determine whether you become a published author depends on how good your writing is. My advice is to be careful about grammar. I noticed in your opening to La Scaligeri that you wrote: 'it has it’s dark side'. The 'it's' and 'its' are often used erroneously and particular attention ought be be paid to instances such as that. Also, if you want to make use of foreign words make sure of their spelling or pronunciation.
It should be Buongiorno rather than Buonjourno.
