a budding writer

I started writing as at high school and got an award for a book I wrote while at school my personal glory which was soon dissembled at for a second but I came back with vigour and more knowledge and sick of how I was pasted off as a ghost writer and for some time now I have been writing and I am thinking about trying a new genre in romance, usually I am good at plotting out horror or children’s fun books and I have never give true romance a go and think I should open my fields more, then try journalism and other writing? maybe can’t get too carried away.
