Yeah, I thought I’d throw a new word at you tonight. Go on, admit you looked it up. Ha! No shame remember, no shame on my blog whatsoever. Moving along….
I’m very grateful for the recent attention my lil ole blog has been getting lately. Not only that, my assertive writing style has found a nice welcoming crowd. You see, I’m not a sugar coater, never have been. I guess you can say I don’t have it in me. My approach to writing is the same way, it’s forward and very direct.
With this next story I’m writing, I’m going to throw some serious plots at you, things you would never see coming. My characters are no joke and they have an incredible story to tell. These are actual events that took place within my own family. I’ll go ahead and tell you now to thicken up that skin of yours because my second novel is not for the faint of heart. I’ve had readers tell me my first novel had them in all sorts of emotions. Take those emotions you felt and multiply it times two!
I’ve learned from the mistakes I made with my first novel, so my approach and offering of my second upcoming novel is going to be much different. I probably won’t seek out a literary agent with my second novel because I was told my first novel was too bold to market. I refused to “water it down.” This one pales in comparison so I know I’ll definitely hear the same sentiments echoed again LOL. Ahhh, but that’s okay. I’m alright with that. Eventually you’ll see why.
I’ll leave you with this, if you are pursuing your dream or passion, go about it the right way. Don’t compromise, don’t sell yourself short and don’t hurt people or sabotage people just to get what you want. Be patient, be grateful and be humble throughout the whole process because once you have received your reward, you’ll be much more appreciative of it.
Write on you writer warrior! Until next time…see you in about another week! Keep writing!
