Picture A Day - Day 15
Researching, writing, publishing and promoting a book. I had no idea what all went into it and I find it fascinating. People sometimes write to me asking how to write a novel, and I always tell them there’s so much more than just getting an idea for a story. You have to not only put yourself on the operating table, but each and every one of your characters as well. You have to bleed, go in there. Writing a book isn’t just the physical act of writing, it’s keeping your scalpel razor sharp and cutting away at yourself without flinching. This has been an amazing thing for me.
