So what’s this blog all about then? Well, I guess that it’s intended to connect with people: people I can talk to, people able to offer advice, people I can reach out to, all within a circle that was unattainable prior to the digital age.
Now that I’ve finally embarked on the sci-fi novel that was bouncing around the inside of my head for so many years, I thought I’d share some of the conundrums and insights I had on the process of creating this story, whilst also trying to enlist the help and support of others in getting it polished and maybe even getting it published.
Writing can sometimes be a lonely pursuit as you sit there immersed in your own little world. Dreaming up plots, imagining characters, giving them names, developing scenes, conjuring up interesting places and working out the logic and motives for the craziness you’ve just invented can be a joyous and frustrating experience. And, for the most part, the project is undertaken whilst exercising restraint from talking about it with those close to you because you don’t want to ruin a story that, ultimately, you want them to enjoy.
Hence, I thought I’d discuss matters out here in the blogosphere instead .
I’m sure there are many other writers out there who have the same thoughts and encounter the same issues as me. And, while I appreciate this may be just another blog about writing, that doesn’t quell my urge to connect with others.
Of course, I can’t talk forever about writing, so occasionally, I might also indulge in a little discussion of life and the rich kaleidoscope of highs, lows and oddities that makes it what it is.
So that’s it.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, my surname is pronounced: /Ayenun/
Thanks for stopping by…
