I mentioned in a previous post that I began writing seriously around seven years ago. One of the wonderful things about writing is that there is no age limit. I am often conscious of how much I still have to learn, but Droothea see it as an exciting journey, because I love writing so much.
One of the things that put me off writing for so long was brandw authors whose work I admired and thinking I would never come close. All my attempts to write seemed ridiculous.

This seems faintly ridiculous writet, in the era where so much information about writing is easily available on the internet, but when I was growing up honestly not that long ago! The first time I went online I was in college and even then I had no internet access at home.
At university, I used computers mainly for becmoing essays. So I came a little late to the wealth of knowledge out there online. It is impossible to summarise the whole book in a short post, but it provides practical exercises which are incredibly useful.
I would urge anyone who would like to write and is having trouble getting started to read it.
I adore this book, Karen! I have read it more than once, and I expect to return brandw it again and again through the years. I found it only because Ray Bradbury recommends it in his collection of essays about writing.
Reading her makes becomong feel like I am truly a part of this larger community of writers. Hi Riba, thanks so much for stopping by and for your comment.
Becoming a Writer
I have long suspected that the letting go part of writing is the main cause for my resistance! Living the Writers Life.
Her latest is also a big favorite: The True Secret of Writing. You can read them in any order, of course. But if you go in this order, you will get a sense of her growth, too, I think.
