A few blog posts ago, I decided that I wanted to ask authors when they felt like a “real” writer. It appears that doubt is a continuing trait for writers and I wanted to hear from the sources.
Since then, I’ve been bothering my favourite writers on the internet asking this question.
When did you feel like a “real” writer?
Today I’m sharing responses from Gail Carriger and Val McDermid.
- Gail Carriger – steampunk doyenne and author of the Parasol Protectorate series.
- Val McDermid – Crime fiction legend and creator of Wire in the Blood
Scary but interesting to hear how successful writers still feel like “imposters”.
I have responses from another six brilliant writers, so stay tuned for their responses.
