Taking a leap of faith.

Inspirational Quote: Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.

  • Struggles as a new writer: The idea
  • The research
  • Making the story my own
  • Keeping the flow going
  • Writing through all the distractions around me
  • Writing what you know
  • Getting advice on your work and ideas of where to go with your work
  • Growing your audience
  • Will people be honest with their thoughts and give helpful tips

The Creation Process: Yes, I knew writing a book wouldn’t be easy. Narrowing down the thoughts and ideas, working through the distractions is a job all by its self.

The Original Idea: The idea behind Small Town Facade came to me while researching unsolved murders. Looking for that idea that can make a fascinating story.

Making It My Own: The original place where the murder happened; getting the research just right. Wondering if I can change some of the original details of the setting and still be a reliable storyteller to my readers?

Finding Help: Asking for help when you feel you should know what you’re doing. The resources are limitless to read, but finding an actual person to believe in you and your story doesn’t come cheap when your looking for a mentor to help turn your book into something great.

Do I?….Should I?
