I am a writer, and have been since I was old enough to hold a pen. As a child I used to write stories for fun. I loved being able to create worlds out of nothing but my imagination. At the age of twelve, I wrote Starsky and Hutch stories, which I was going to send to the television station, if they ever ran out of ideas.
My first book ”Sticks and Stones’ was written because I was bullied at school. It wasn’t something I told anyone, but writing the book helped me see it wasn’t my fault. I was forty when I got it published, but made the mistake of using a vanity publisher.
When I wrote ”Behind Closed Doors,” I made another mistake in not sending it to an editor. I self published, but took it off the market to work on my manuscript. Beta readers, an editor, and a name change later, ”It Won’t Happen Again” was born.
Eight years of my life, and I am finally happy.
When my play was performed last year, I finally felt like I was a writer, not just because I got paid, but because I knew I was doing something right.
My latest project is written fully, but I have written a beat sheet for it, and know where the story is headed. I am writing in first person this time, and present tense, which is harder than I realised. My main character, Sarah, is going blind, and it is a race against time to finding her husband’s killer.
Most bloggers are writers, and I can see the talent out there. Whether it be short stories, parts of novels, or just a writer’s viewpoint. I’m glad I started my website, not just because it gives me the reason to write, but also to read other writer’s blogs.
Thank you all.
