Topic: New member!

Hello! I'm extremely new to this site. I want to be a novelist, but I have no one else who likes to write or wants to review. I always see authors thank other authors in the acknowledgment part of their book for their feedback and patience. So I thought, "How do I get some of those people?" And I Googled something, I don't remember what it was, and it suggested this site. I've submitted a chapter of a book I am working on and have already received some great feedback. I'm new to giving feedback about creative writing, so I hope what I have given has been useful and/or helpful. I love the layout of this site and I'm looking forward to being an active member of this writing community.
The story I've already submitted is called Morning Glory, and I'm hoping to use it to get into an MFA program. I'm looking forward to people critiquing my work so that I can learn and grow. It can be as harsh as it needs to be, so long as it leads me to get better smile
