How did you know you wanted to be an author? Honestly, there has always been a writer within me. In school, the teachers would ask me to write less because I always wrote a paragraph when a line or two would suffice. So it ‘s been bubbling up inside me. I just decided to let the proverbial œgenie out of the bottle. I started about four years ago writing screenplays. This is my first foray into writing a book. It ‘s been quite a journey.
What is your advice for aspiring authors? Write! That’s my advice. Write and keep writing. The more you write the more experience you will get and the better you will become. Take classes, join groups of fellow writers, read books on writing, read all kinds of books. If you are selecting a specific genre, read books on that genre. Hone your craft. Make up stories. Write what you know. Write what you don ‘t know. Write what you think you know. Write what you think you don ‘t know. Just write. If a title comes to you, write it down. If a name comes to you, write it down. Carry a notebook. Write ideas, thoughts, wishes, desires. Write! I would say that you probably use 3-5% of what you write, if that, for books or screenplays. But I liken writing to Thomas Edison ‘s light bulbs. He made tons of them but only a few worked. Write On!
