When I Grow Up I Want to be a Writer - my first guest post.

It has been a bad week at work. It was spilling over into everything else. I was having one of those days – you know – where you start doubting yourself and wonder if your work is utter rubbish. All those questions were there: Why am I doing this? Am I any good? Have I improved my writing skills? Is my editing hopeless?

Then a friend of mine asked my to write a guest post for his blog on Boomerang Blog. He had been impressed with my writing enthusiasm (cool!) and requested I write from the point of view of a new writer trying to break into the industry. Maybe I could inspire other writers just beginning their journey? Wow! My first invitation to write a guest blog! But what do I write? I haven’t done this before. I put pen to paper and wrote.

It is now done and edited. Best of all, he was happy with it – and my editing! (All that reading and research must have paid off.)

You will find my guest post - When I Grow Up I Want to be a Writer – on Boomerang Blog, hosted by  Boomerang Books.

Am I excited? Can I do this? Hell yeah!

A big shout out to George Ivanoff – thank you for asking me to write for you and for your continuing support.

George Ivanoff is an author of Children’s and Young Adult fiction (among many things) and fellow Doctor Who fan. Don’t forget to visit George’s website- Literary Clutter as well.
