‘If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: READ a lot and WRITE a lot.
There’s no way around these two things that I’m aware of, no shortcut.’
Stephen King is as master at his craft, so I can only take him at his word.
Well, I read a lot. Like, a lot, lot. It’s my happy place. A quiet place where I recharge my battery.
I make no apologies for ignoring you while I read ‘just another chapter’. I am a better person for it, so you’ll just have to put up with my idiosyncrasy.
As I’ve spent the first five decades of my life perfecting one part of the quote—reading a lot. I intend to spend the next years of my life, however many I am blessed with, on the second part—writing a lot.
This is my journey, my struggles and triumphs, in chasing my dream—becoming a successful writer.
I invite you to be part of it.
