On the writing process…

“Too many people don’t realize that they have awesome gifts inside of them and one of those might be being able to tell a story. So find a quiet place and sit down and start to write. Everyone has a story to tell. Maybe you can’t write the story because you are letting the fear of bad grammar hold you back. But that’s why you find a great editor to work with. What’s important is to write to the best of your ability. People can help you fix errors later!”
