In my opinion, there has never been a better time to be a writer. There are LOTS more opportunities now than there were when I first started to write IF you are willing to put in the work, learn your trade, persevere and keep on going. Because, well… let’s face it, procrastination is easy and working hard isn’t.
Even though I still wrestle with self-doubt on a daily basis, my message is always about finishing what you start, and never giving up, no matter what.
After all, imagine what I would have missed out on had I not pressed ‘publish’ on December 8 2011 and launched Taunting the Dead...
I'm happier writing fiction. I love writing fiction. And I think the moral of this story is that you have to find your own definition of success.
