I’ve been asked to share my experience of becoming a first-time published author. A number of thoughts ran through my head which is typical me. It’s a kaleidoscope up there. But as far as my feelings go I’d have to say that it all still seems a little surreal.
Every now and then I reassess my life and ask myself two questions: What if you already had everything you wanted or needed in life? What would you do? Those two questions have helped me to steer my life path many times.
At this point what would I do?
Exactly what I am doing right now. Reading. Writing. Enjoying the process that creating stories has to offer. I truly love stories, myths, and magical lore. Something about reading or writing tales lights up my mind and heart. I love it! So even though my feelings still have to catch up with reality my thoughts are already home.
As I’ve said before in my last Savvy Saturday interview, if you have a tale to tell-do it! Write that story. Don’t listen to others who put down your dream. They don’t know what you have going on in your heart and mind. And if it’s not writing that inspires you then ask yourself the two questions. Follow that path. Go for it!
About the Author
Kay Latour resides in Ottawa, Canada’s capital city, with her Techie Wizard husband and two built-in-alarm-system Chihuahua’s. She is a self proclaimed geek and bookworm. She loves fantasy, paranormal and science fiction stories in book, TV or movie form. She patiently waits for the return of the science fiction series FIREFLY. Brown coats forever!
Early on she found out that her elementary school library contained amazing books like Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Hans Christian Anderson’s Fairy Tales and Greek myths. The stories within spoke of goblins, witches, fairies, deities, giants and all manner of magical folk! Incredible! It struck a spark in her brain and stoked her imagination. From that time on she gravitated to any type of fantasy, mythology, science fiction or paranormal book she could get her hands on.
Now that Kay’s two children have reached ‘the age of reason’ she has time to write her own stories.
