In 2010 I started writing a novel. It took me a while to realise that I was writing a novel; at first I thought I was doing an assignment for a Professional Writing and Editing subject at TAFE.
Now it is finished – the novel, not TAFE (TAFE is a different story) – and being typeset for publication. Yikes. It feels like emerging from the sea after four years of swimming with my eyes shut and now it’s time to learn to walk on dry land like a grown up writer.
Step 1: start a blog to get used to the idea of writing in public.
