Books, Writing, and Life
Writing has been a part of my life since I was fourteen, well I wrote a song in third grade, but it took me a few more years to really realize that this was my calling, but even now, Twenty One years later, at the age of thirty five, I am finding my voice. I think that this is a process that is constantly taking place, we find out by trial and error what works for us and what does not. I have found a voice as a Christian Mystery Novelist, as well as in historical, in fact I am working on a Holocaust Novel Where is G-D!
First and foremost I want my words to focus on the Lord. I want what I write to bring glory to him! He gave me the gift for words, and I am so thankful for that.
I have been working on my Kindle Sales. Reading as much as I could on building a name for myself, as a Christian Author.
I had a bad experience with my first publisher, but being an author is a learning experience, and you learn from your mistakes.
I am going to chock it up as a learning experience though. I can not sit and dwell on the bad experiences, and the mistakes I made. Living life is part of growing, but it is my faith that sees me through, and my writing helps me express my feelings.
I am going to continue writing, and doing what I am being called to do.
Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those who do not write, compose or paint can manage to escape the madness, melancholia, the panic and fear which is inherent in a human situation.
