I started this journey a year ago. My daugther was a few weeks old and while she napped, I researched how to become a published author. I already knew that it would not be an easy journey, but finding answers and coming up with a plan helped to ease my anxiety. In the last year, I finished a copyediting certificate and also completed some training in developmental editing. This month I will be participating in Novel Boot Camp hosted by Ellen Brock. In the fall, I will be starting a writing certification program at The Writer’s Studio Online through the Simon Fraser University continuing education school.
It has been a year of learning and discovery. I’ve gained so much insight behind the scenes of publishing and I’m eager to learn more about the craft as well.
