Being a writer is full of ups and downs – aching disappointments like when your lovely indie press closes up shop 🙁 and pee-your-pants happy moments like when someone tells you how much they loved your work! 🙂 (*I may have several more of this type than the average person, having had two children).
I plan to share it all here from the very beginning, from inspiration to publication with a series of posts on everything from writing habits, choosing your setting, developing your characters, plot escapades, editing, editing and more editing, and the arduous road to getting published. Drawing on my experiences from both sides of the coin as a writer AND a former literary agent, my mission is to inspire anyone out there who has ever thought about or wanted to write a book, or who just wants to be entertained!
If there are any particular subjects you’re interested in or would like to learn more about (for example: What are agents really looking for in a query letter?), please leave a comment below and I will do my best to cover them!
I leave you with one of my favourite (and very popular) quotes on writing from Ernest Hemingway.
“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit at a typewriter and bleed.”
Let’s bleed together!
(PS. That sounds a little creepy, but you get the idea).
