Roots of Writing: How This All Started for Me

My life as a writer began in April 2014 in the wake of a choice I didn’t want to make and which I’m not so sure was much of a choice anyhow.

Since that day, I have made the near-daily, authentic decision to use words to explore relations and conflicts and internal demons.

Looking back carefully at my seven completed novels, there is a clear theme: loyalty.

Whether to the greater good, to one’s word, to friendship, to professional ethics, to family, to the less fortunate, or to one’s heritage, all seven stories have loyalty woven throughout. And all seven struggle with its inevitable betrayal.

  1. The issue I have is that time spent trying to acquire followers is time not writing. So my M.O. is to use the WordPress app when I’m out walking dogs, and do a keyword search for whatever I’m in the mood to read about. That puts me in touch with new blogs and bloggers. Still, I’m not great about follow-through, commenting, etc. Some people build up 1,000 followers in a few months and I have no idea how! Maybe they can hack WordPress so it displays a higher number? Or they’re amazing?
