Those of you who know or follow me may know that I only started my writing journey 5 months ago during August of 2020. It’s seems so much longer, than this, but thats because I have had this story that I am currently penning in my head since I was a child.
I was on holiday (yes I was very lucky and I did manage to get a holiday in 2020). I was laid on the beach and I was saddened that I hadn’t brought a good book to read on the beach. I am one of those people that like to hold a real book in my hands, not a downloaded one. And as I laid there and pondered, about not having a book I thought to myself I may as well have a go at writing my own. It was like a lightening bolt of information had just burst into my head.
It was really easy setting up the premise and story arch for the first book of three. The characters were already in my head. I just needed a bit of help naming them, (those who helped, thanks). What I wasn’t expecting was the journey the writer takes when they think about publishing (I am far away from publishing let me just get that out there) but its constantly there in the back of my mind thinking how or who is going to want to publish my work, is it even good enough?
Joining some writing forums and getting to know writers who have been on the same journey as I am, I have comfort in realising that all writers go through this stage.
