So far I just have one story on it.  I'm going to make myself just write little stories aimed for kids maybe 4x's a month or less but at the very least once a month.  I made everything public.  This first story is a bigger risk than I was wanting to take but I had a lot of encouragement from my friend and his daughter.

 

I don't have my invisible photo I have on here so that's a bummer.

You can do it definitely. And the worst that can happen if needing to rework it to include in a story collection.

Note though that it does take away your "first print", which doesn't matter as much if you self-publish.

yeah, if you don't mind giving up "first publication" rights (which also means the places you can publish in are greatly diminished), go ahead.

I've noticed a lot of people who actually post fan-fic things and get noticed by them.  Yes it's a risk, and NO I will NOT post my stories that I work my ass off for pure perfection in hopes to get published.  This is more I need practice in between things, I do still send my stuff out but maybe with a blog they could use it as a reference.  I may be doing it all wrong but it's better than the only thing I'm doing is sending my story I'm conceited about most of all and hanging my rejections saying it's just one step closer to yes...
