Getting Started

Whatever you want to do in life you can do it. I didnít realize it back then but the seeds of becoming a writer probably were planted years ago in rural Spotsylvania County when I used to sit along the banks of the Rappahannock River and sort of daydream for hours while watching the water flow.

Yep, when I was a little boy I definitely was one of them book nerds who paid more attention to the Rappahannock Regional Mobile Library route schedule rather than caring whether or not if the Washington Redskins beat the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

I owe some of my early dedication to a few of my elementary school teachers in Spotsylvania who gave me encouragement, especially when I naively would tell friends and classmates about some of the wild stories and dreams in my head and how the Rappahannock River was like a friend to me. I eventually became a somewhat quiet, shy kid because some of these kids would make fun of me and call me crazy. But Iíll never forget the day when one of my teachers said, ďRandy, youíre not crazy, people tend to quickly call anything crazy that they donít understand, and youíre just crazy about your stories, thatís all, so just start writing them down instead of telling the other kids about them.Ē Needless to say, I couldnít stop writing after that.

Today, Iím so blessed and grateful to have readers, followers, and a small-but-growing fan base. Periodically, I would receive emails from aspiring writers from around the world expressing general comments and questions about getting started and copyright protection.

If youíre a budding writer and would like to know more about getting a literary agent, proper novel manuscript format, writing great query letters, or just general questions about protecting your material with the Copyright Office, here are a couple Links that could be helpful:

1. US Copyright Office (https://www.copyright.gov/registration/)

2. Writers Guild of America, East (https://www.wgaeast.org)

Lastly, it might be hard to believe, but itís actually true that getting started on any or whatever your goals and dreams are can simply start by getting your library card, simple but actually true. Ė Randolph Randy Camp
