Learning How to Write

We all have to learn from somewhere right? Truthfully in my every day non author job, I don’t write as much as I want to. I have a technical writing background which enables me to write documentation so that the average user is able to navigate something technical, but when I started writing fiction when the pandemic started, I realized I didn’t know how to write fiction. Not from a grammatical standpoint, not even from a chapter standpoint. I didn’t know where to stop. Truthfully I still don’t. I thank the gods every day for editors, for people who know more than me, for books that tell me to slow my roll.

So I wrote a book during the pandemic, and people thought it was cute. Someone thought it was nice enough to be published, but not without a lot of heavy duty spit shine. So that’s where I am at now. I am in the process of reverse engineering this book so that it is professional, that I am not out here looking like I don’t know how to write at all. The truth of the matter is, I know how to write. I wrote so well that a bunch of people enjoyed my words and have demanded more. I just want it to be the best product I can give them. There is nothing wrong with that, is there?
