I have been interviewing published novelists and we are benefiting from the lessons they have learned. Yet, there was a time, when they were on the outside looking in. They were unpublished writers with a dream. They worked and labored to reach the exhilarating moment when their precious baby is accepted by a publisher.
Katt Anderson tells us what it means to her to pursue her dream of being a published novelist. I appreciate her thoughts and insight. She is a friend and I wish her the best! I hope you enjoy her meditations.
My Writing Journey
by Katt Anderson
My writing journey has taken many turns and a few dead ends. Becoming rich and famous was never my goal. If I can bring just a little money in to help us in our retirement, that’s enough for me. Let me share with you what it’s like to write.
The bug first bit me while working at a newspaper. They allowed me to write a small weekly column with my family’s favorite recipes. I would have a little blurb about the recipe and then list the ingredients. I loved the little blurb I wrote. I was hooked.
