Ever since I was a child, I have enjoyed a good story. I have always loved how it can be so easy to disappear into another world with a good book. When I was old enough to write on my own I took my love for stories and started to write my own. I have always had a big imagination and have tried my best to use it to create compelling writing. My novel, Princes and Kings, is my first published work as an author. I have enjoyed the writing process and the chance to share my love for a good story with others and plan to continue to write for many years to come.
During the writing of my novel, I learned how important it is to have a good outline to work from. So, to any aspiring authors, I can not stress enough how much a good outline can make the writing process so much easier in the long run. It helps to organise your thoughts and the plot of your story and it will make you look much more professional as an author. Also, write from the heart. If you write what you know then your passion will come out in your writing. For myself I like things like life, love and history.
Love can come in so many forms. There can be the love of family, friends, a job or life itself. I find that in any good story love for something or someone is what drives the main character to do what they do. I think this is true in life as well. Even to hate we need to love first. Remember to keep reading as well. Through reading, we can find what we like and don’t like and then take that and use it in our writing.
This has been the story of how I became an author and my thoughts on writing. If you like what you have read here, or have any questions, let me know. I would love to hear from you.
