The earliest I remember ever writing something that stirred emotions was way back in my sixth grad when I wrote an essay,part of a test and my English teacher made me re-write it. He was convinced I'd plagiarized the essay. Can you believe that!!!!
For the record - I hadn't!
I don't really remember what the essay was about,but I can imagine how riveting my story must have been.
I tried serious writing in high school,actually wrote a couple random articles, but ridicule from classmates tore me down. I actually got to the mid of two books! But didn't complete...
By this time, I'd become hooked on suspense thrillers from Sidney Sheldon (his "Doomsday Conspiracy," will be my all time favorite), Steve Martini, Robert Ludlum, John Grisham (I looooved his-"The Partner"), Jeff Abbott, Robert Ludlum ("The Borne Series") of course among others. But, it was after completing college that I decided to really get down to it.
I really must thank a former hostelmate - Kioko, for my first drafts of Ionshaker that I began writting in 2007. When I secretly started writing the story, he read the first draft chapters despite the many typos, inconistencies and a lot more. But all the same he was thrilled. I can't explain the effect of his addiction to my story had on me. And soon he spread the word around and many friends also read it.
I finished the story, but getting a publisher......... was another bad, bad, bad nightmare Just ask any writer, they'll tell you...
Anyway , I'm happy that Ionshaker isn now out as an ebook(for now) and I hope it will be received well so that a paperback version can follow soon. And if you'll like the ebook, please tell others.
My experience so far has been that, writing is like a drug, you start with a page, then a chapter, then a book, then without knowing you're on the next. As a matter of fact am almost done with my second thriller TERROR ALERT.
