Have you taken any creative writing classes ? Brushed up on your sentence structure and punctuation skills ? Start with the basics.

Better idea: Start with reading the rules for this Amazon forum.

"Hi, everyone. I am a young author hoping to start a career. I am posting this on Amazon because I want to use Amazon and their self-publishing services to jump start my career after I have built an audience. So what I am really asking is for you to check out my blog; it is still young, and I am learning how to angle it correctly. So head to [deleted], read, leave your comments, ask some questions, and I will definitely respond. Please share the address if you so desire. Thank you in advance, and I look forward to hearing from you."

Punctuation is your friend. Strive for clarity, conciseness, completeness, and correctness. Oh, and stop begging for attention. When you are doing something worth looking at, then people will start looking at it. Until then, it's a lost cause.

Here's an interesting fact that may help you in your writing career. Hamlet wasn't actually written by William Shakespeare. It was written by a group of monkeys locked in a room hammering away on typewriters. Some say Christopher Marlowe wrote it, and it is possible that one of the monkeys was named that, but it was definitely monkeys. It was a slow process that took many months just to produce the first draft. Then they had to begin the editing process.

Unfortunately, most new writers can't afford a roomful of monkeys (lemurs work, too), and so you may need to write your material on your own. Just remember it takes time. Commit to spending several hours a day locked in your room, banging on a keyboard. If you do this long enough, you will eventually produce something good.

Be aware, however, that writing can be a lonely endeavor. Many writers deal with this by frittering their days away on an Amazon forum or by drinking. Drinking is probably the safer of two. Bourbon is the appropriate alcohol, both for writers and for monkeys. Scotch is a better choice for Lemurs.

You are welcome, and thanks for asking. I always enjoy sharing my opinion.

I took a look and my advice is to write interesting things in a clear manner and avoid the phrase "Anyone who knows me personally" whenever possible.
