So here I am venturing into the blogosphere, with not one single clue as to what I’m doing. But then, three months ago I ventured into the unknown world of words in a similarly ignorant fashion. So far that’s turning out OK, so I’m a convert to the “just jump right in and act like a pro” methodology.
I have no idea where this journey will take me. I know it’s going to be a long one. I know I will likely walk in circles a great deal of times, cursing the landscape when I ought to be cursing my own sense of direction. It may all amount to very little in the end. But one I thing I know for sure is that I won’t get where I want to be unless I put one foot in front of the other. (Or, more accurately, one word after another…)
So far, so good. I’m sitting on a 100% acceptance rate for my short story submissions. No doubt soon to be broken by rejections. But hey, I can’t be a REAL writer until I’ve got a stack of rejection letters, right? So new submissions going out very soon.
My début novel is currently at 50,000 words, and I’m dividing my time between writing more and editing what’s been done already. I am incredibly fortunate to have some awesome alpha and beta readers who are helping me.
So, I shall dive in head first, start keeping a blog and hope there’s some people out there who fancy coming along for the journey…
