Adventures in Writing

I have been invited to participate in a new writers blog called Adventures in Writing. A number of us writers are going to share stories about the trials and tribulations of writing a book and getting it published. (We will be published, there is no if)

I look forward to share some of the interesting things that happen when you actually make up your mind to write. I don’t know how many times I have heard someone say “One of these days I’m going to write my book”, or “Wow, that would make a good book”, yet very few actually do it. 

It’s hard. Having the patience to actually sit for days in solitude and write down your thoughts in a meaningful composition takes a lot more effort than it seems. Lots of people can tell stories. Putting pen to paper is much harder. 

So watch this space for interesting content from a number of writers as they thrill you and chill you with breathtaking stories of the writing process. 

OK, so maybe it won’t be that thrilling or chilling, but we hope you learn something that makes you a better writer.

As always you can find my latest novel here
