Many of the professional writers I know in the various branches of non-fiction aspire to write fiction. I certainly do — and I have the completed manuscript of one so-so crime fiction novel to prove it.
Since leaving Apple more than a year ago, I’ve taken a novel-writing seminar. But I haven’t made fiction writing (unlike my personal blogging, professional blogging, and paid writing projects) part of my daily routine. Instead, I took up Trailer Park Yoga — which is another story.
I’ll be giving fiction writing another try in September, I hope. I’ve registered for a semester-long short story writing course.
