Random Thought

You have no idea how much I want to be a writer… it’s true that I’ve been published before, but publishing a full scale novel is just something else. I’ve been doing this for more than two years now, and I’ve learnt a lot since then. I love the writers’ and authors’ community, every single writer I’ve had a conversation with had something to give me, some tip or trick to share with me, and I love that about them. There’s no competition (Or at least in my point of view) in this community, because everyone is trying to get published. When I think about it, my mind immediately projects this image of large sums of people floating at sea, and there’s a single boat passing by, so everyone is helping one another to get on that boat. It’s a silly analogy but give me a break, I’m tired.

Now, I’ve been working with horror fiction for a while now, but it got boring so I decided to change voices. I’m not quite sure what that new voice is, but you can read a sample of it in previous posts. I’m still experimenting with different styles and technics in order to find -or create that voice.

I just wanted to share that thought with you, whoever you are. If you’re out there, don’t be afraid to do what you want in your life. Go crazy.
