Steep Learning Curve

Since I started writing from scratch, and don’t have a Masters in Fine Arts, I have had to learn as I go.  You might think it is easier, but I’m not so sure.  Every time I read something from Writers Digest, or read another authors blog, or research something on grammar, or read one of my books on writing, I learn something new.  It appears it is an ongoing process.  (How could I have thought otherwise?) I love to learn so it is okay, but wow, there is so much to learn.  It is a really steep learning curve I am on.

Today in my authors’ group I found out I am good at descriptions and getting the audience to like my characters, but still lousy on some grammar points and lousy on paragraphs. (They are always too long)

So, something good and something new to work on.  It is a long, busy day writing and repairing mistakes.  Good thing I don’t work anymore.  Can’t imagine how I used to get everything done.  I’m not even doing the laundry this week!

About Sharron

Author, blogger and professional seeker of new adventures. After spending many years in the healthcare field, I am now devoting my energies to writing. I have finished my first book, "Waiting on the Outside" and it will be published shortly. Writing is not an easy task, but if you feel the absolute necessity to write, then you are a writer! I am writing my second book, "The Last Thousand Miles" and I hope to have it out by the end of the year. A little ambitious I think, but if you don't aim for the sky you won't land there.
