Finding my Way

July 31, 2019 at 10:56 am

I haven’t posted in a long time and that’s largely down to the fact that Real Life has been full of so many things. However, it’s also due to the fact that I have been going through a rough patch as far as my writing goes. I haven’t had a lot of inspiration (make that none) but have just recently gone over a couple of unpublished manuscripts. Fortunately, I was pleased with what I found there. Now I’ve just got to hope that others will be pleased too.

I am making inroads into getting these manuscripts checked out and get a bit of feedback on them. And even after all these years, it’s a nervous wait. Will anyone like them? Does it matter if they don’t? So many books appeal only to certain people and not the majority. Many manuscripts can find a market somewhere; it’s just a question of the author finding them.

Certainly, we need to make sure they’re as well written as we can get them and that they make sense and avoid the plot hole pitfall, but apart from that, there is a good reason to think that some of our readers will appreciate what we’ve written.

If you’re an author, maybe you can let me know in the comments of an experience you’ve had like this. If you’re a reader, have you ever loved an author that no one else has seemed to like. If so, it would be great to hear from you. 🙂
