Welcome aboard the merry-go-round
Welcome aboard the merry-go-round that is a writer’s life. You promote, share, tweet, post, and advertise and fight your way through the myriad books on offer, in the hope yours will be noticed. It sometimes feels as if you’re banging your head against a wall, but still you persist. Why? Well for me it’s not about fame or money, but because I feel I have something to share, something to offer the reading public. Which is why I strive to make my writing as good as I possibly can.
I can never understand writers who shortchange their prospective readers with shoddy works, filled with plot holes, and flat characters.
Do I ever feel like giving up? All the time, and I have, on occasion, ceased to write. But it’s addictive and the withdrawal symptoms are horrible. I can’t think of anything else, but writing. My fingers itch to be at the keyboard. My mind fills with all kinds of ideas, and everywhere I look, inspiration for my next story/novel lies in wait, ready to pounce.
And so, inevitably, I return to the one thing I feel I’m any good at. No matter how hard I try, I can’t turn my back on what I see as my vocation.
I write, therefore I am.
