It's often said that everyone has a novel inside them.
At Blogfest back in November last year, I attended a fantastic session called "Cracking yarns and tall tales: how to tell a better story". Among others, on the panel was Lionel Schriver, one of my favourite authors. I looked at them all in awe and wondered what it's like to be able to call yourself a writer. The most important thing that I learned from the session was that in order to be a writer, you need to write, constantly. Most of what you write will never be read, but you need to keep writing in order to be able to produce the content that will be.
