Say what!? Not all authors dream of publication from their first word?Or so they claim.
Susan Mallery didn’t even fathom writing until a college course caught her eye. She is now a New York Times Best Seller. I love her Foot’s Gold series. Some way to start – bumble into something and go. She even admits her first story was awful. See -your not alone. First books aren’t usually good.
What made me start to truly write? Well, my last straw was one more bad book making it to the silver screen – yes Twilight. I’d dabbled for years but never actually thought I could write outside of myself. No, I am not writing of vampires, but if Stephanie Meyer could do it, I figured I could too. (I do love Twilight though, so don’t judge. I am just aware that it is not the best written story.) My high school English teacher always thought I had talent, I just finally moved past my own doubt.
What made you decide to start writing or doing whatever it is you have a passion for? There is always a spark from somewhere.
