When I write, I write with a certain level of conviction. Every writer does. I believe what I have to say is unique and a story others want to read. I know what I write isn’t for everyone, just as there are subjects out there that aren’t for me. I firmly believe that if I love what I write at least one other human out there in the world, I, will too.
Of course, doubt will play a part once I’m done. It charges in to knock down my confidence and make me worry that what I wrote is crap. So, I reread my work, and I know it’s not, and I can say that beyond any doubt that I love what I write. I love writing. I even love revising and editing my work. If I didn’t, then I wouldn’t be bothered.
With several finished novels waiting for their turn at revisions and edits, I am currently querying Prophecy Ink out to agents. I have a lot of projects to keep me busy over the winter. Now to get back to revisions…
