For those of you out there who have one day dreamed of being the next J K Rowling or Roald Dahl, you are not alone. There are hundreds of thousands of aspiring writers and authors out there who are also looking for their hard work to one day be rewarded.
I can only speak for myself when I say this but I genuinely do not believe for one second that many are in the writing game for fame and fortune. The majority of us write because we love it. Having the freedom to not only invent a story but to then take it in whichever direction you choose, is priceless. It is a gift that no writer would ever give up.
For me the end result of seeing my book for sale on well known platforms really is what it’s all about. Sitting back and thinking ‘wow. That’s my book’.
Writing also takes me to a place of tranquility. A place where no one else can enter. A mindset so deep it cannot be broken. Having this other world that writers live in is like having a big secret. A fictional secret. A place to escape to that only you understand but equally a place that only you needs to understand.
If you’ve ever thought about writing, give up the thought and just do it. Trust me, you won’t look back.
I’ll be back soon with an update from DCI Morgan! Thank you all so much as always for your incredible support
