Reality of being a Writer..

       Being a writer is not always easy especially if you are starting out. There are so many new things to learn about like blogging, using the social networks called twitter, facebook,  learning how to network… The list goes on, and on. Some writers give up because it is so overwhelming, but the truth is the more you practice at it the better you get. Sometimes you stay up late at night wired on voltage, and head full of ideas. Sometimes you really do not feel like writing, and only reading which is okay.

The point to all the late night writing sometimes is publication, and the end result of finishing something. To me that is the ultimate goal with why I am writing getting published, and changing the world with my view. I have already completed a novel, and I am in the stages of editing. It took me 4 years off and on for  the rough draft of it. A lot of revisions I have to go through, and many more to go as of now. I am going to finish editing, and then after that I will type a query letter. The query letter is a letter to a literary agent, or publisher about your novel. You also have to worry about making the agent hooked enough to read. I have a pretty good idea of who I want to query. Research is another part of writing, and finding the agent to send your letter to.
    
      To all aspiring writers out there do not give up the dream of getting published, and having your book end up on the shelves of Barnes and Noble. That is all for now, and I will keep you updated as I try to get published.
