Hi all and welcome to my blog. I am fairly new to social media and a complete novice at blogging. These are things I am attempting to correct in hope to meet new people and (I won’t lie) hopefully generate a following for my work.
I am an aspiring fantasy author, although currently seeking agent representation for my work I do have high hopes that at some point in the future my work will be available for the public.
It’s an exciting time, my worst enemy at the moment is impatience. I have worked really hard on ensuring the quality of my work, the strength of plot and characters. I am eager to hear something, anything back from the people I have submitted my work to. I have already received two rejections, yet one of them had a positive spins and advised that the work wasn’t quite right for them, but I should keep looking. It was a much nicer rejection than the form letters or no replies I had anticipated. I imagine I will have many more rejections, but it only takes one person to say yes, one person to believe that my work is a good fit for their company. I am optimistic, optimistic but impatient, I really want people to read my work, to hear what they think, good or bad, every opinion.
I plan to keep this blog as a record of my thoughts and progress on my aim of becoming a published author, if you are reading it, I hope you’ll enjoy sharing this journey with me.
