I’m Michael James. Hi.
I’m an emerging writer trying to figure out this whole “writing” thing. Here are answers to the most common questions I get:
Q: Is that your real name?
Q: Are you published?
A: Yes. I put my books out on Amazon, check the side bar. They’re linked everywhere.
Q: What have you written?
A: Two books:
Q: What makes you qualified to dish out advice? You’re as much an amateur as I am!
A: True! I’m not at all qualified to provide advice.
Q: Feels like there should be more to that answer.
A: I’m learning as I go. Writing it in a blog helps me make sense of what I’m learning.
Q: Well, I think I shouldn’t take any advice from you.
A: Totally fine! It’s why I always try to show before / after for all the examples I post. You can decide for yourself if my advice is any good.
Q: What can I find on this blog?
A: Writing advice, rah-rah inspiration, and random snippets of stuff that I’ve written.
Q: How much time do you spend writing?
A: About 20 hours a week. Maybe 1-2 on this blog and the rest working on real writing. Getting better (hopefully), working on book three and so on.
Q: What do you do for real life?
A: A pretty boring job that doesn’t make sense to people not in the industry.
Q: What industry is that?
A: Not writing, so don’t worry too much about it.
Q: Do you think I should get that spot on my arm checked out?
A: I do! It’s been there for a while and even though it’s not growing, better safe than sorry.
Q: How can I request future topics?
A: Leave a comment.
