My name is Madeleine and I’m a closet writer.
I’ve been dabbling with novels for years now…and nothing has come of it. There was my yoga detective, my vampire chef and my crime phase (until I realised I hated writing the violent bits). I finished Nanowrimo three times. But this time, it’s different. This time, I’m going to do something with this.
Why is it different this time?
Maybe it’s me. Perhaps it’s a matter of life experience, perhaps I needed to wait for the right story to come along, the right mix of dedication and time. Getting older and finally realising what I wanted to be when I grow up.
And the world has changed…there are more options for getting your work out there. Self publishing is becoming mainstream, I don’t have to rely on being “chosen” by old school publishers, I can manage my own writing, my own product and do it my way.
So this time, it’s different.
Exactly…there are enough resources to choose from 🙂
A whole world is opening up! It’s pretty bloody exciting really.
he he, yes. 🙂
All the best in your endevours! I hope you make it one day 🙂
Thanks for your kind words, Jeyna. I’m having fun regardless!
A yoga detective and a vampire chef both sound quite entertaining. Maybe after your success this time you can go back and revisit those. In either case I wish you success.
Thanks Jamel. Someone else beat me to the yoga detective story! But there are plenty of other ideas in the sea.
