My Journey to Writing a Novel

My husband's sin by Mary T. Bradford | From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's books

When I began writing short stories and flash fiction, I wondered if I’d ever write a full novel, but I often dismissed the thought. Sitting down to write a book is time-consuming, takes dedication, discipline–and, of course, a great story. My hands were full as a mother to four children and time was scarce, so the short stories and flash fiction pieces suited me perfectly.

Yet the yearning to know if I could do it, write that novel and hold it in my hand, feel the paper, admire the cover, kept tapping me on my shoulder and poking its head beneath my face as I stared at the sheets of paper before me. I wrote longhand, all pen to paper for me then.

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here.
