I can’t wait to read this blog post back one day, after a further decade of experience, and cringe inwardly. But I’m committed to writing about my self-publishing story and that includes managing a website!
I’ve never been, am, nor will ever try to profess myself to be savvy with social media. The extent of it arrives at a selection of memes and that’s about it, I’m afraid. I do try my best but really, what I’ve discovered with self-publishing, is that it’s not good enough. You need to thoroughlyContinue reading “The Road to Self-Publishing: #6 Social Media”
So what does my day-to-day look like exactly? For many it’s hectic, for others, it’s bliss. Unfortunately, I tend to fall into the prior category, balancing my writing and reading around a full-time job. Check out the below to see how I attempt to fit writing a novel into my routines!
This book has been the longest project I’ve ever worked on. It’s such an enormous part of me and I mean to see it through. But this Coronavirus outbreak (Covid-19), has really stretched me out thin. Like Bilbo Baggins said, “Like butter, scraped over too much bread.”
My first and probably second novels will be crime fiction. But is that all I want to write and be known for? Absolutely not. Crime fiction is an itch that I’ve wanted to scratch for a while now and one that’ll be satisfied come June 2020! But it’s not all I want to do…
It’s a pretty big question to unpack. Why do I write? Why does anyone write? My answer is a bit more of a story, really. When I was young, I didn’t write/read at all. I spent most of my time goofing about or playing outside climbing trees. Truth is, I was more of a drawerContinue reading “The Road to Self-Publishing: #2 Why Do I Write in the First Place?”
I want to start documenting things a bit more – to diarise my life and process throughout this whole saga. How did I get here? What am I doing to self-publish, and why the hell I’m doing it in the first place? Which is a great topic for this first entry… Why do I wantContinue reading “The Road to Self-Publishing: #1 Why Do I Want to Self-Publish?”
Renato = To rise again Still yet to make the dialogue far more authentic and create a more real environment that’s true to the location. Get a rich sense of the culture. Renato’s interactions with his wife were cracked and cursed like the baked yellow lands surrounding them. A small house, white and tiled, evenContinue reading “Remember Renato”
Wow, so I found an old story I wrote for school when I was something like 14. (Had to open it in Open Office because my ruddy Microsoft has expired as usual). So I’ve realised I had started typing it up because the original is a printed copy in my attic. I’ve managed to typeContinue reading “A Listening Whisper”
As per my first post, this is a direct copy and paste from my original website. I will be posting the others over as well tonight and begin typing up the others. Please note all work is largely unedited, which I’ll never get around to! She was taking her god damn time. Tight skirt, hairContinue reading “Joe”
