#17 How Having a Child is Like Writing a Book – Michael Chapman
For many writers, creating a story, making that narrative that is both structured and unique is like nurturing a child. It is bringing something new into the world.
Authors become attached to their writing just like parents to children. The characters created can seem like close friends, enemies or even a child. Part of a writer’s life, their history and personal experience, goes into crafting their tale. It can be daunting sharing a book with the world, a book that is judged. One that is loved, or hated. Read and re-read, or cast aside and guess what, a book doesn’t even need to be written for mass market, it can truly be something personal.
Desiree Duffy talks with Michael Chapman. Michael is a writer, a father, and he has a wonderful website where he supports fellow writers and authors. Welcome to the show!
