A Writer’s Life – Behind the Scenes
Over the next series of posts I’m going to take you behind the scenes and show you a little of what it’s like to be an ordinary workaday writer. I’ll share with you some of the things I’ve learnt, things I wish I’d learnt earlier and tips that others have given me.
Of course, I’ll talk about my books. I’ll be explaining more of their background, and give you an insight to the worlds I’ve built.
I’m going to touch on the business side of writing, as this is almost (but not quite!) as important as the words. I’ll share with you some of my favourite resources and give you a sneak peak into income sources for writers.
But mostly I’ll be talking about the craft of writing: how to structure sentences, how to avoid unnecessary verbiage and how to make your story interesting.
Posts will be a little jumbled, but I’m hoping that eventually some coherence will eventually emerge. And of course, if there’s anything you’re particularly interested in, please let me know. I’ve finally figured out how to set up comments on this site, so now there’s something to fill in. 🙂
So… Strap in and sit back. I hope you enjoy!
Welcome to my world!
