Hello, and welcome to a new feature here on A Mad Pursuit! I’ve had such a good response, and so many good conversations, around my aspiring writers series, that I thought I’d reach out writers I know and see how they’d answer a simple question: What would you tell your younger self about writing?
I’m entertaining, perhaps, but my experience is only that: my experience. So I wanted to hear other writers’ experiences to not just give a little flavor, but to show just how varied this journey of writing is.
Emily Lavin Leverett is a writer, editor, and medievalist. She writes fantasy and edits short story collections. Changeling’s Fall and Winter’s Heir, the first two books in her contemporary fantasy series with Sarah Adams, are out now. Her historical urban fantasy, Marie and the Werewolf, about the medieval nun and romance writer Marie de France, will be out soon.
