I’ve blogged sporadically for a few years now, but with the publication of my first novel fast approaching, I thought it appropriate to reintroduce myself.
My name is Roderick T. Macdonald. I am 46. The age surprises me often. Time kept slippin’ away, and here I am, in the future. I am a writer. I have always been a writer, though I have not always been prepared to boldly say so. I write fantasy fiction.
Going forward, I’m going to share with you my experience as a self-publishing author, how I came to fantasy as my favoured genre, how I deal with this writing life, and what I plan to do next.
I am not an expert. I do not claim to be an authority. These will be my perspectives, and reflections on the lessons I have learned. Mistakes have been made in the past, and doubtless more will be made in the future, but as long as I am moving forward, I shall try to be content.
None of us who write are truly alone in our efforts, though often it seems so, wrestling the words in our heads. Join me, if you will, on this journey – companions make the miles pass more easily.
