Second, as quietly happy as I am with my writing craft thus far, I just don't see myself as a professional writer yet. Oh sure, I'm confident that I could write circles around some of the 'properly published' authors out there, in the same way many YouTube channels are streets ahead of some television material. But there's no doubting that by traditional means, I'm not quite there yet.
So I found it odd that people would ask me for pointers. Odd, but not unjustified, though. Down the years, I've picked up a mass of experience in writing fiction first hand - primarily how not to write it, but as they say you learn more from your mistakes than your successes.
Here, then, is where I wil collect my thoughts, musings and advice on writing, such as it is. I may pick apart some of my own work as examples and try to explain why I write things as I do, so it might also have a behind-the-scenes quality to it as well.
Every Sunday, I will post a new 'On Writing Blog', and depending on how it goes I might increase that frequency. I hope you enjoy it and please let me know your thoughts or comments!
