Thank you Kristen and Joel for these extraordinary words from a master. Last year I published my first novel, When Darkness Falls, The First Vampire Redemption Story. I’m 68 and this is a brand new career for me. It’s never too late. And, by the way, I’m making a little money at what I love to do.
I am unbelievably blessed to call some of the biggest names in the industry my friends. What is even MORE awesome is that these experts are willing to give so generously to me and to you guys.
The goal of this blog is to train y’all how to be PROs. So many writing books are addressing the hobbyist. Though there is nothing wrong with that because writing is the best hobby EVER—and that is mostly why all of us want to be PAID to do it—we need much more than the average, Gee, I’d love to write a novel resource.
We have ALL been there. When someone asks, “So what do you do?” and we tell them, “I’m a writer.”
When the world rarely takes us seriously, we gotta be extra careful that doesn’t rub off. Above all, if we don’t take ourselves seriously, no one else will.
