A few nights ago I had the pleasure of meeting some very interesting and talented people in the writing and film industry.
Being a mother of three it's not often I get the opportunity to go back to my London town and so when invited to
join a meeting there, I jumped at the chance.
Needless to say I had a ball! I was thrilled to be chatting about my YA fantasy series and hearing all about, novels, TV shows and films being created.
I learned that being a writer is not only tough when sitting at the laptop or scribbling over a tattered manuscript but selling your work and showing others how wonderful it is can be just as daunting as the hole in the page.
It was a very valuable experience and I'm very lucky to have met such knowledgeable people that I can learn from.
My advice to any new writers would be, learn from a master.
