I am expecting to come back later and fill this in more completely.
Edit (11-10-2017): so I have decided to fill this more completely.
Hello! I am RUA Rubin! Thank you for visiting and finding my old archives.
In case you are reading this, you are probably looking at some of my early attempts at being a serious author.
I don’t think there is any proper definition though; for being a serious author. I am putting for me, the time I started being a serious author is when I registered a domain and started this up. I am sure the answers by others range from the first time you come up with a novel idea, to the fourth book published by a major publisher.
I gotta start somewhere so here is where I start.
