I’m Adele Walsh, new to the writing world with grand dreams and aspirations of becoming an Author.
I began writing fiction in grade school but followed a different path until just recently.
A couple of years ago I had an idea, a big shiny story idea for a fantasy series. It gave me goosebumps and made my heart sing. I knew instantly deep down inside it needed to be told, and for the last few years, I have been planning, brainstorming, and developing my story idea.
What I started to realize was although I had the passion for writing and the idea for my story; I didn’t know enough about my craft. I didn’t know the steps needed to publish or market my books once they were written. I also didn’t have a clue how to build a platform to attract my audience.
In order to become the writer I envisioned, I needed to absorb everything I could about the craft of writing. How to write beautiful prose. How to create interesting characters my readers will fall in love with. How to develop themes my audience will relate and connect with, and how to devise plots that will keep them turning the pages.
To garner these skills, I knew I would have to learn all I could and establish a disciplined writing practice. I also knew I needed to be introduced to the world of publishing and marketing. This is where my exploration and education began.
It has been such a wonderful, mind-opening, and dream building experience!
I discovered I want to join the amazing community of Indie Authors more than anything!
It is something that is totally possible and there are so many great resources and mentors from which I can learn. I hope I can inspire you to follow your dreams too!
I hope to share what I learn along the way. Please join me on my journey of discovery!
