So today I have the amazing Siobhan Kinkade with us to talk about writing. So let's see what she has to say.
That doesn’t mean what you think it means. I’m not talking about using books to escape from real life, as I am always wont to do. No, in this case, it means the literary part of being a writer tends to escape whenever it has a chance. There’s a reason for this madness, I promise.
Anyone who says that writing fiction for publication is always fun is full of hooey. Either that person is demented, or she's not doing something right. To be a writer, you have to REALLY love your work. You have accept that sometimes it’s awful, and further you have to understand that the rewards are worth the war.
