I’ve got the oddball down pat. The rest—-not so much. So you don’t just put a pen to paper and the words flow; which I knew. You have given me a greater appreciation of what it takes to write fiction, though. Also, I don’t think I drink enough coffee either.

hahaha! Thanks for your comments, Bob. But let me tell you something: if you want to be a writer, you’re going to have to get your coffee addiction up to par. It goes hand-in-hand with the job. You see, we turn coffee into words.

Hi Cynthia! I haven’t had a chance to read your book yet, been quite chaotic in my life for awhile now. I am going to read it, but have to go on vacay for quiet. Lol! I am so glad you take the time to answer my questions about writing, I have always loved reading, English, those were the only things that kept me on the right track in school. Now, I am thinking about writing life experiences, kinda fictitious, ( privacy for my friends and family). But mostly real. I feel I have a lot to teach people by my experiences, and I think they could learn some things. So, I am starting to write things down, and hopefully I can put everything together and have an interesting book! I sure had an interesting, fun, crazy life! And no regrets about it!! Made me who I am today.. Any way, thanks again for your time and advice! Good luck on your next book!!

I’m always happy to help aspiring authors, Trina. Many kind individuals helped me on my path to publication, and I fully realize how overwhelming it feels to be traveling that path in the dark. Most writers I know are pretty open to answering questions and pointing fledgling writers in the right direction because we’ve all been in that exact position. I’m delighted that you’ve started to write things down. Journaling is a great way to get your feet wet writing. The accumulation of all these experiences will make your writing passionate and meaningful to readers. When readers identify with what you write, it makes them think about how this applies to their own life. It also makes them feel less alone in the world. In this way, you’re giving of your talents to make someone else’s life better. You’re very welcome for the advice! I wish you the very best on your journey to write.

Thanks for your kind comment, Smith292! I look forward to sharing what I know about the writing and publishing process—as well as introducing you to some of my favorite author friends. This business can feel overwhelming at times with so many voices, companies, and services. Perhaps, I can shed some light on this. At the very least, I hope to make new friends through the magic of words. Thanks for your comment. Stay tuned!
