Four years ago I finally got off my mental arse and started my novel, you know the one I always meant to write.
I had a computer, I had an idea, I had the time.
Unfortunately, I didn't have the skills.
Turns out, writing a book, is hard. At least it was for me. Probably because I did it all wrong.
But I blundered though. It took forever, there was so much to learn about voice and pacing and grammar and character development and scene setting.
Now, finally, my story is complete. Except for a few teeny tiny fixes: like voice, and pacing and grammar and character development and scene setting.
I've learned massive amounts while I've struggled with this huge mess on my desk and in my head and on my pc. I thought maybe I could help some of you newbies out there by sharing my mistakes as well as gifting you with some of my great finds.
Follow along with me as I move towards publication of my first creation. Maybe you'll learn something. I'm sure I will.
