Love All The Books.

The Amateur Writer

 It’s funny that the word “Amateur” derives from the French “Amator” meaning lover.

 I get a heady sense of excitement in bookstores and libraries. It’s the smell of ink and the musky odor of paper. It means I’m in the right place. I am a lover of books. I devour them voraciously. 

  The writing was always there. Dreaming up stories and putting them to paper. Here I am now, an Amateur Writer. The world of writers is a wild jungle, filled with literary agents, publishers, self publishers, editors, competitors, allies  and rules. 

  It’s an isolating work, both writing and navigating this strange literary world. But my brief foray into this world so far has shown me that I am far from alone. I am in incredible company with new twists and turns changing the very landscape around me.
