I may have mentioned (about a million times) that my Grymm & Epic Guide to Blogging is one of the bonuses in the World Changing Writers Workshop, run by Pace and Kyeli and featuring some seriously amazing writers (SARK!

Ali is a lovely, kind and easy-going writer who started off making a full-time income writing paid blogs for sites like Daily Writing Tips. She now coaches writers, writes and sells ebooks on writing (including the awesome Bloggers’ Guide to Freelancing), creates amazing writing e-courses, and is about to self-publish her first novel about what happens when the world of Geekdom becomes very, very real.

Sure! As a teenager, I knew I wanted to be a writer. I worked on a really bad sci-fi novel in my mid-teens, holing up in the school library in my lunch-hours. (I wasn’t the most sociable of kids…)
I’m working on my novel this weekend. It is the most wonderful weekend I’ve spent working in a long time.
I don’t talk about my novels very often, because this is a blog about being an awesome business chick, and when I think of the four unsold novels sitting on my hard drive, I don’t feel so awesome. That’s a lot of hours of writing for no direct benefit.
Or was it?
