Writing Tips

Dear Aspiring Author

It has been quite some time since I have written a draft in WordPress. Some of you may recall, I disappeared right as the world was shutting down from COVID. Around the same time, I had my son and I’ve been pretty consumed by him ever since. I have been writing more lately, finally, and I hope to have more to share with you soon. Today, as a way to reintroduce myself, I’d love to share an interview I did with Penable which was featured in their Hall of Fame.

In this interview I was asked: “What advice would you give to any aspiring author?”

In short my answer was this: Have Patience . . . Have patience with your story and your characters. You cannot rush your writing because you are so eager to publish that you regret not allowing your writing to mature and improve. Have patience with yourself. You’re not going to hit your word count every day. Have patience waiting to hear back from publishers (mostly because we don’t have a choice on that one).

It was a fun experience and if you’re interested, you can read the full interview here: https://penable.net/2020/08/08/interview-with-special-author-kayla-ann/
