Newbie, newb, noob, or n00b is a slang term for a novice or newcomer, or somebody inexperienced in any profession or activity. It can have derogatory connotations, but is also often used for descriptive purposes only, without a value judgment. The term's origin is uncertain. Earliest uses probably date to late twentieth century U.S. military jargon, though possible precursor terms are much earlier. Variant forms of the noun include newby and newbee, while the related term noob (often spelt n00b) is often used in online gaming.
Greetings, gentle reader. Inexplicably, amid the vast abyss of the Intarwebs, you’ve stumbled across my page. Perhaps you’ll stick around awhile. As you may have guessed, I'm a bit of a "noob" when it comes to the realm of publishing. I've been learning a ton of fun tidbits along my authoring journey, and this blog serves to share them.
My goals are thus:
- Gracefully exit the military around the year 2021(ish).
- Become a published author prior to that timeframe
- Earn a reasonable living off my creative works.
- Maintain or exceed my current lifestyle.
Feel free to tag along for the ride. Maybe we can learn a thing or two together :)
