a reply to: westcoast You're an inspiration! I remember reading your short story in a writing contest on ATS a while back and thought it was awesome. I appreciate how the internet has freed up artists/writers, etc. to have a venue that is widely accessible to all. I appreciate the information you've shared about self publishing. Happy New Year, Westcoast!

First off congratulations! I know there are a lot of aspiring writers on this site, myself included, so it's wonderful to see success from other members.
I'm curious on your approach to writing. Did you outline the plot first and fill in the gaps? Or did you just start writing in sort of an improvised manner?

Huge congrats to you. As a writer myself i know how difficult it is to see these projects to the end. I'm still trying to finish my novel that I started 4 years ago.
I guess my question is this - how did you fit writing your novel in to the daily trappings of life ie kids, study, work, laundry etc etc!
I'm worried I'll never get mine finished or someone else will come up with a similar idea before I get mine out.
I had a peek at the amazon link. Your book sounds like something I would definitely pick up off the shelf hopefully in a few years time I'll be posting about the publication of my novel!
Peace and well done
