Hi everyone!

I've been on this site for some time, but only recently started publishing my first novel. Before that I only wrote one short story (that you can also see on my account).
To me writers were always just some people who were simply born writers. As strange as it might sound I never knew that it's possible to just sit down and write your own stuff. So even if it's late for me to start now, I hope at least a couple of people will read and enjoy something that I created.

Cheers,
Remi

Welcome to writing. Glad you finally sat down and began writing. There's just something about bringing forth what's in your mind to the written (or typed) page that nothing else can compare to. Being active in the Forums is a great way to share your ideas with others and to help more people find your work. Good luck with your writing and I hope many people enjoy it.

Welcome to Royal Road!

And congrats on becoming a writer! I also believe writers are also more nurture than nature. 
 
You might already know this, but just in case: there is in an excellent Beginner's Guide written by Cinn (https://www.royalroad.com/forums/thread/111469). Even if she doesn't list my earlier guide to reputation points, but a newer (and admittedly also more comprehensive and prettier) guide on it instead - which I may possibly be only ever so slightly bitter about... 🙄

Anyways, hope you are doing well and that you enjoy your time here!

It's never too late to start writing if you have the desire to do it. I've been doing it as a hobby since a few years ago and I had spells where I could write loads and times where I procrastinated or burnt myself out DrakanGlasses
So  don't sweat about it. You'll do just fine and also welcome to RR! It's a great community here.
