When I started writing – it was easy.
I have been writing since I was eight. Stories, poems, comics and more. I have books filled with my childish scribble, doodles, pages of title ideas and font styles. Now I have two computers bursting with fresh ideas.
As I reach into a career as a writer, the basic story-writing process (though challenging and often lonely) is fine and I am enjoying creating characters and worlds for people to find.
Then – enter the World of Blog.
Ahh! Now I have to think of short, witty posts to entertain folk and reach new readers, whilst maintaining my quirky persona as a writer from Yorkshire who likes cake and SF/F/H.
I am getting there and am amazed when someone new takes an interest and is bothered enough to post a comment/like or follow me.
It was super exciting to see my eBook on Amazon. I was giddy at my first sale (even though it was only around $0.30) but to get complete strangers taking an interest in what I have to say is really priceless.
For anyone worrying about it – Don’t! do, don’t dream…
And to those of you who read and share –
thanks, danke, cheers, tack, grazie tanto, merci, gracia, ta, dankje
you are all brilliant!
