The private journey of the author's experiences while writing the Draoithe Saga. Read the often hilarious issues encountered by a newbie indie author as she tried to navigate self-publishing. The unadulterated truth no matter how ridiculous or clueless it made her look. This book was written to give the loyal readers a sense of background while the saga was being written as well as to offer proof that not only can they do it, but others should write their story. If Ophelia Kee could do it, anyone can. Sure she made mistakes, but that’s part of the process. Welcome to the dream...
I’m what’s known in the writing community as a pantser. I don’t plan out how the story should go. I write the scenes that flow through my mind rather than plotting the story along a plot arc.
The fancy term is discovery writing. Pantser comes from the idea that one writes by the seat of his or her pants, on the fly so to speak.
Laugh. I did when I learned there was even a term for it. I started out writing without any knowledge of how it should work. Not the writing, the publishing, or the marketing. I just wanted to tell a story.
I was going to write one book. Well, that didn’t work as I thought. So maybe the background is important?
