I’m currently working on a guest post for Marie Landry (author of Blue Sky Days, which I read and reviewed for aside from writing blog last month) and the suggestion she gave me was to post on my writing journey so far.
It’s a great topic and has really had me thinking over the last week or so (even whilst I was away on a break in Edinburgh, trying to get inspired for my fiction work again!) I never thought to look at this whole experience as a journey, but that’s exactly what it is…
Sometimes you have company along the way in the form of friends and readers, who come along at the most helpful of times and keep you motivated to go on – I saw a new review for Hope’s Daughter appear this week on amazon, which definitely made me feel this way (see it here). There are also lots of paths to choose, you might have lots of books you could be working on, but you have to pick one and knuckle down to it…In each book you can take the characters down a hundred million different routes, but in the end you have to choose just one.
I’m not going to go on about this too much here as it will probably end up duplicating the post I do for Ramblings of a Daydreamer, but if you’re interested in seeing where I end up on this little journey of mine keep watching this space 🙂
