Come here. 

I know why you’re here. 

You want to know the secret, right? 

You already know about BICHOK–butt in chair, hands on keyboard.  You know about writing at least a little every single day.  You sleep with your trusty Dwight Swain or Jack Bickham manual under your pillow.  You’ve inhaled Bird by Bird until you can recite the chapter about shitty first drafts by memory.

Yet, you search, day after day.  You read blogs, articles and writer’s magazines because you just know there is some big secret to this. 

Well, yeah, there is. 

Wanna hear?

You have to love what your doing.

That’s it.  Sounds simple, but it’s not.   


About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.
