First Steps, Small Steps

I've just realised it is 18 months since I started this blog.  I re-read my first ever post, which was tentative to say the least.

So many fears; would anyone read it and would that matter? Would it make me vulnerable?
In fact, I have enjoyed blogging, and the best thing about it is the wonderful people I have encountered and met as a result.

In reflecting on my first steps. I came across a site which asked what one small step made a big difference in your writing career.

This is hard to answer because there would an awful lot of small steps.  And some big ones.
I think that indie publishing to Amazon has certainly been the most fun, so far.

What about you?

  1. 18 months and going on well!
    For me, the most important step was getting an agent. She didn't ever manage to sell the book, but it gave me confidence that it was good enough.
    So I'm self publishing it end of July :)
