They do it, not because of some external force, but because they feel compelled to memorialize the thoughts and words floating around inside their head. They write in journals; They write poetry; They write for their children; and sometimes they get to write for the public.
For the longest time I was happy doing the first three things. I’ve written reams of experiences inside my journal(s). I’ve written countless poems (for my wife), and I’ve made up more stories than I can remember for my children.
But I’ve always wanted to write a story to share with everyone else…including you.
Today, I took a step closer to achieving that goal.
If you have been following this blog, you’ll know that for the past year, I’ve been busy writing a thriller (If you didn’t know that, then you can read about it HERE) and that last month, I started sending out query letters, hoping to find a literary agent willing to take a chance on an unknown author. Today, I am happy and proud, to announce that I found one. I have signed a contract with Mike Hoogland of Dystel, Goderich, & Bourret LLC.
(That’s me signing the contract)
I am now one step closer to sharing my novel with all of you—a milestone achieved.
The next steps? Revisions…revisions…revisions….then, getting my book published!
