I've been kicking this one around myself.
As someone who writes for a living? Really tough. But you should go for it if you want to! Absolutely. Just remember there's a reason why so many writers are alcoholics. :)
I wrote a novel in one month during National Novel Writing Month. And it was hard, and I'm not even sure it's any good. Sure it has a beginning, a middle and an end, but would anyone want to read it? Would any publisher want to take a chance on it? Doubtful. But, am I glad I tried it? Yes. Would I give it another go? Absolutely. It's like exercise and eating right and saving money - it takes a huge amount of effort, and you have to really stick with it, but if you're prepared for that, go for it!And to echo Willikat, my fellow writer and friend, I do like the wine... ;)
Thanks for the input ladies!!willikat - I don't think I have a problem with alcohol consumption ;) A. - I don't think I've got the skills to polish off a novel. More of a memoir which I may or may not decide to embellish :)
Are you serious! That's so cool. I like to write, but I've never thought I had the vision or tenacity to write a whole book.I want to write my brother's story. Or my mom's story. Or maybe just the story of my whole damn family. But my confidence is lacking.I wish you luck and hope you do it!
