SM Blooding, who said this, lives in Colorado with her pet rock, Rockie.
In her bio it also says, 'She’s survived hurricanes in a tent, and ditches in winter. She’s sometimes crass, often crude, and almost always blunt.'
Note to self: make own bio less dull.
Anyway - about not publishing crap...
I wrote a series of children's stories called Quirky Tales in 2005 or thereabouts.
They were the best I could possibly write. In 2005.
I didn't try to get them published. Two of them were recorded as audio stories, then taken up by and serialised on Fun Kids, the children's digital radio station. They were well-received. And that didn't translate into sales.
Now I AM trying to get them published - as books. They are by no means crap - however, I have developed as a writer, so I'm now making them the best I can possibly write. In 2013.
It's a temptation to look back and to think 'How COULD I have thought these were good enough?'
It's a temptation I'm resisting.
