What it takes to become an author

Unless you somehow missed it, I recently published my debut novel. For those who asked about how I did it, and as a sort of learning exercise, I recently wrote an article for Lifehacker about what it takes to become an author. You can read it in full here: www.lifehacker.com.au/2015/12/the-complete-guide-to-writing-your-first-novel/

While the article contains a lot of information, about what I learned and the best ways to do things, the essence is simple:

Perseverance.

Writing a novel is (mostly) a matter of just sticking to it until it’s done.

I do believe that within every book-lover is a story waiting to come out. What’s yours?
