Learning curve

When I first started writing, I set out to write an autiobiography. I gave up work and wrote and wrote and wrote with absolutely no idea of the technical skills I needed to tell a story. After a year, I realised that my writing was getting better and stronger and it seemed every day I was learning something new. At the end of eighteen months, the beginning of the manuscript and the end seemed to have been written by two different authors….I was gutted and thought I was never going to be any good and put the book aside.

Looking back now, I realise how valuable that time was and no matter how many lessons you have in writing, no matter how many webinars or podcasts you watch, or how many writing retreats that you do…nothing beats actually doing and learning, not only about the craft of writing, but just as importantly, you learn about yourself.
