Day fifteen: Midway question! Tell us about a writer you admire, whether professional or not?
This is actually a hard question. Because honestly there are a lot of writers that I admire out there and I would never be able to pick just one. Even if I divided it among professional or not the list would be endless.
Instead of picking one writer I am going to do a shout out to all writers great and small. Writing is such a unique life style. It’s gruesome and awe-inspiring, happy and sad, hard and easy, solitary and communal. You will have a rollercoaster ride of ups, downs and side-to-sides. Every one of you amaze me whether you are a pre-teen writing dreadful poetry or a best selling author, you blow my mind.
To stick with this craft is a journey. One that you are constantly learning and teaching yourself about because no only do you need to know the grammar and spelling and all of those lovely mechanics of writing but if you plan on proceeding to that glorious stage of “published” you are also going to have to do a lot of research on agents, querying, publishers, and the actual industry you are trying to be a part of.
So this is my hats off to all of you! Keep at it. There will be times when its hard and you’ll question yourself and your ability (or at least I have been there myself) but, I know for me, it will always be that wonderful world to live through and hopefully get to that top of the rung!
