The one thing I always wanted to do when I grew up was to become a writer. I think it was because I was in love with the magic of books. I didn’t know the first thing about writing (I’ve wanted this long before I started school and learned how to write even the alphabet). I did not really understand how to tell a story. I just knew that I wanted to be able to create that magical place that other writers could take me to.
If you are like me now or then – and want to be able to create that storytelling magic, then this is a website for you.
I have read that there is “no such thing as an aspiring writer” – just like Yoda, they say, “There is no try, do or do not.”
On one hand, they are right. The only thing you really need to do to be a writer is to take up your pen, pencil, or keyboard and begin. Write the alphabet, write your name, write about what you had for breakfast. It’s all writing and it’s all real.
But what if you want more than that? What if you want to write the kind of thing that transports your readers to another time and place? What if you want to be published? or get paid?
If you are trying to answer any of those questions, then this website is for you.
