Your post liked for the last sentence, Edmund, not for the earlier words <g>
Sounds like a good interpretation of my LinkedIn profile.
Thanks for the kind words, Edmund. For me it took finding a method and workflow that worked-- and it took me 55 years to find those. I think I was lazy before 55.
Ah, that is inspirational (or is that "inspiring") because it means I still have a few years before I write myself off completely
Jig, if I had a LinkedIn profile, I would probably add those descriptors to mine...
And, now, almost 4 years later, I've just (self) published the novel I've been working on for 6 years.
This is a stand-alone novel, not part of any series, and a much longer work than the Hard Case books. This is an urban fantasy, meaning it takes place in a contemporary setting but has people brushing up against magic.
I learned a lot writing this novel. It is still moonlighting-- I have time to write, but not time for marketing. But that's okay. I'm an old guy telling stories I would want to read as I have time. Maybe things will change when I retire, but I'm enjoying this.
Coolness! Yet another DL'd book added to the To•Be•Read stack of 0's & 1's <g>
I got mine!
Great news Hook. Despite what I wrote in 2015, I've gone back to trying my (weak) hand at writing again. Working on both a longer piece and also trying to break out a short story from the material in the tried and true style of most first time writers (at least the ones I knew in college). Usually, first timers try autobiographical fiction collections of connected short stories. You read these kinds of pieces in The New Yorker, etc.
Edmund, what you're writing would fall in what genre, broadly speaking? Thriller, mystery, SF, etc?
Separate names with a comma.
