Writing has always been and probably always will be my favorite hobby. I was making up my own stories long before I could write, and even though I’m more into non-fiction and reflective writing at the moment, I will always write something. No matter how many new hobbies might come and go.
I struggle a lot with being a writer at heart but not daring to be a writer professionally. But I’m the type of writer Thomas Mann describes when he said that a writer is someone for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.
But even though I don’t live from writing, I have done it for so long and read so much about it that I can say that I know a fair amount about it. So here are my shares on the topic.
