Welcome to Mad Hat Writer.
I’m James, and I’m excited that you’re here because it means you take the art of telling stories and the craft of writing just as seriously as I do. It says that you are always on the lookout for new ideas, new insights, and new approaches on how to write and how to publish.
If you want to become a writer but feel uncertain how to begin, you are not alone.
Writing, and especially fiction writing, can seem like a quite difficult and daunting pursuit, even to those who do it everyday. So if you’re starting from nowhere, it may take some work to convince yourself you can actually write that book you’ve always dreamed of.
Yet, in all honesty, becoming a writer is not a difficult matter. Now, to become a best-selling novelist on the New York Times Bestseller List may be very difficult. Most often, the people who dwell there spent years getting there. These people live in rarefied air to be certain.
But to become a writer or even a published writer is relatively easy. That’s what this blog will focus on. Helping writers of all levels.
The goal here at Mad Hat Writer is designed to provide simple answers to “how do I become a writer”. Here we’ll examine strategies that have worked for most beginning writers and to examine the methods of some great writers.
I’ll be sharing ideas from myself and from other writers about every aspect involved in the writing and publishing process. If you’re only interested in a particular aspect – fine, just read the articles that pertain to that one thing. And – if there is some things that you are interested in but can find in information on it, just let me know and I’ll be glad to try and find the answer for you. Heck, I’m always finding out new things myself, so no topic is too abstract.
Mad Hat Writer isn’t just about conveying information either. Mad Hat Writer is also meant to act as a community for Dreamers and Storytellers where members can share their experiences, ask questions, and discover kinship with fellow writers.
The main thing is to help people start pursuing their writing passions now. Today.
So Here We Go?
