If I were a real writer...

Posted on February 2, 2016 at 12:25pm 0 Comments

Your article touched me deeply. I have said to myself many times "if you were a real writer you would be published" and the older I get the louder it sounds.

I spent my younger years raising a family, at times working more than one job or going to college at night. Finally, after a fairly successful career, earned with struggles, I retired and said "this is my time." However family needed me and so my writing became nocturnal and to the wee hours. I got a couple of freelance writing jobs… Continue

Some writers are just into novels. Others such as me dabble in screenwriting, short stories, poetry and political banter. The wider range of writing interest the more media that lures with subliminal, or outright statements, of must haves to be the best ever.

Rules and technicalities can vary according to sources, and unless one has a ton of capacity to assimilate, and a coffer to spend on learning to feel confident, one has to make careful choices. There are invaluable books on all…

Thanks for your support. It's my first time self-publishing though, so there are some glitches in the e-book.

Hi Martha!

Thanks for the friend request! :) It's nice to "meet" you. I'm always seeking guest bloggers for my [REALITY CHECK] blog, so drop me a line if you are interested.

Marta, welcome to the Paranormal and Supernatural Writers group!

If you haven’t had a moment to explore the group yet, I would like to invite you to introduce yourself and the work you are currently slaving over in the “Who Are You, What Are You Writing?” discussion. If you have been honored with publications, feel free to toot your horn in the “Toot Your Horn: Share Your Published Work Here” discussion.

I hope you enjoy our group, and I say “our” because I couldn’t do it without you!

Have a great day!

Hi Marta,

Poetry Critique has been moved to a private group at this link . Membership is required but no one is turned away.

Hi Marta!  I love it that you had the idea to start a First Novelists group!  Did you know there is one, however?  If you did and you still want to start the group, no worries.  But I thought you might want to check this out:

Warm best,

Thank you for your welcome Julia.

I'm not sure how much I can participate right now but I like the site. I have a deadline to complete a revue on my 160 thousand word manuscript. While I revue it I am also creating a time line, genealogy and short summary of every chapter. Want to get most if not all done in a month or so.  

This year I also want to publish a poetry book and maybe a book on short stories; will see.
