After more than thirty years in management positions in corporate America, I retired to pursue writing novels. My first book, “The Coach House,” will be released soon. Its sequel, “Daughters,” is expected to be released in late spring. A third novel, “Lee’s Triumph,” is currently in the works.
Like many first-time writers, I thought I knew everything there was to know about writing. What’s to know after all? You concoct a good story, you put pen to paper (or more likely, fingers to keys) and then you tell it. Well, it didn’t take me long to find out how little I really did know. Since then, I’ve learned so much.
Each blog post is on a different topic of effective writing, advice I wish I had received before I got started. These basic articles are intended for first-time writers, in particular first-time novelists. There is no shortage of more in-depth advice on the Internet, in books and in classrooms.
If I can help just one person through the process, it will make me very happy.
