Writing 101

Some quills

I’m a writer.
I’ve been a writer for close to 28 years – since I was four in fact.
I started off in fan fiction – writing stories based on the cartoons and programmes I watched, and the books I read. And then I moved to my own stuff – my first novel was called ‘Ascendant’ – and was the story of a spaceship which sat on the junction to the ends of everything. At 13, I was even really into exploring environments, and apparently, hard sci-fi because I wrote quite a detailed explanation of the convergence between the drive and the ‘problems’ people were seeing.
I’ve gone on to outline 50 novels, a couple of hundred short stories, more blog posts and articles than I can count and more.  I love writing.  Which is why, though this is meant to be a personal blog, I’ll always talk writing here.

In the next few weeks, I’m going to try to tackle some of the biggies, the difference between the ‘I’ in writing and the person writing it, why ‘adult material’ isn’t necessarily ‘adult’ content, and why writing under pen names isn’t cowardice.  If you’ve got any other stuff you’d like me to tackle, I’d love to hear about it.

    I was wondering if you’ve published anything or have any plans to. If so, maybe cover some of the difficulties of publishing.

      Been published and self published, but I don’t know, really, what I can say about that – it’s one area where I’m still learning – one of the biggest things that I’m seeing in this is that there’s no one ‘true’ way to get published and the industry is moving *so* fast, which is why blogging is perfect to cover it.
      That said, I’ve always got something to say about the industry 😉

    I echo -10’s comment. I am actually in the process of finding a way to publish a cookbook my mother wrote and would love insights.
