Writing Necessitates Learning

If there is one thing I've learned since becoming an author, it's that I'm always learning something new.

For one, just the very nature of writing necessitates learning, whether it's researching a certain topic, location, or human nature for a new book, or re-learning all the things I was taught in English about punctuation and grammar.

Another thing I've learned, and am continuing to learn, is how to be a better author; how to (and how not to) market a book, how to write and edit more efficiently, how to organize my time better so that I can devote more time to writing, etc.

And lastly, I must say I have learned so much from other authors, which includes reading the posts on this blog. I can't tell you how many times I have struggled with some problem or another in my writing and have found answers, suggestions, and solutions, when I need them most. What a wonderful thing it is to learn from others who have experience and wisdom in areas that I lack.

Thank you!
