I have been writing ever since I learned Chris Paolini, author of 'Eragon', started writing his first book at 15. If he could do it, so could I!
Thus began my career which has so far resulted in two self-published novels (one of which is admittedly horrible), a handful of contest-winning shorts, a bunch of unpublished stuff which hangs in cyberspace, and – you better believe it – a healthy stack of rejection letters. I do a fair bit of editing on the side and have been a part of several writing and/or critique groups, but am currently only committed to the River Bottom Writers.
I participate in NaNoWriMo every year, win or lose, and recommend 'On Writing' by Stephen King. Best. Book. Ever. Especially if you are a struggling writer feeling like you’re getting nowhere.
