But the truth of being a writer is that it’s a lifelong venture. No matter who you are or how well you write, it’s imperative you live in ‘learning mode’, studying your craft by reading classics, by writing everything and anything, and by attending workshops or holding your own. To do less is to risk creating stale, poorly understood, almost unreadable copy.
Now, after you've committed words to paper - okay, words to keyboard because today you must, must, must, have a digital copy - you take your work and submit it to an editor or an agent. No one reads print manuscripts anymore.
Can dreams determine who we want to be or do they tell us who we are?
