My Story 
The writing is all. 

Becoming an author does not happen by chance. It takes hustle, determination, and plenty of sleepless nights slaving away at your computer. But if you are willing to do the (really hard!) work, your dream of publishing a book can come true. How exactly?

Once upon a time, a long time ago; when I was a child - I am still a child in fact, but that is another story entirely. 

 

I was introduced to a fascinating book of wisdom literature, mystery, wonder, poetry and song, romance, crime, adventure and more…

 

Yes it was all there, in one book, naturally this very quickly became my favourite book and still is, it was in reading this book that my Dream of being a writer was born, it was simple. For me, it was about two things: having the liberty to carry out the process of writing, and to enjoy that; and writing something that others may read and enjoy.

The process was, I think, the most essential element of the dream.

 

Once I could find my chill I was certain I would have it all. (At this point I was still unsure of what all was)

“Every few weeks I would shut myself up in a room, put on my writing music (Wu- tang & Papoose were my favourite) and fall into a vortex, writing away at my stories with all my heart and soul, for till that was finished I could find no peace.” 

To myself I would say - 

 

 ‘I’ve got the key to my summer office in the park, but whether I can unlock the door remains to be seen.’

I did unlock the door. I write full time now, often from my summer office in the park and I love every minute that I spend on my books. I live every day the dream of being a writer, my dream of being a writer. Everything else is but chance, not design – we cannot regulate sales, financial success or even building a readership – But we can have it all if for you

The writing is all.

THE END?
