How I became a writer. Part 10
When someone tells you that you can’t do something, you have two choices. One, you don’t do it and two you prove them wrong and do it anyway.
That is the way this all started. We were working on a story for a series. It was technical with doctors and all and I made a comment that…
“I couldn’t write that…” When my boss replied, “That’s because you are not a writer!”
Well, if I would have had a blood pressure meter hooked up to me, I am sure it would have blown! All because this was the same boss that relied on us for three complete series when he started the company, the same one that I ended back up at years later. He conveniently forgot that small detail.
That weekend I decided that I was going to prove him wrong. I began a story and it ended up as being Scars. It is a drama based on the premise that two long-time childhood friends will be tested on their love for each other. The small twist is that the boy will have an accident and his face will be mangled. The girl will love him unconditionally and he will not believe her.
I began to write. The story unfolded very well and a short while later, working on the evenings and weekends the book was done. Now somewhere in here is where my editor Janet came into the picture. I am not sure if it was this book or the next one, but things began to take on a life of their own as I got more and more into writing.
The main point was, that I had already proved my boss wrong. I proved that I was a writer.
What he didn’t know was that I was going to take this to another level.
The books kept on coming…
