I have (I think) finally found my writing platform. I have read a lot about the need of one and could never really figure out what to build on and now I know. My platform is based on the premise life demands action.
Whether it is nonfiction, YA, picture book, or a novel making a statement will be the goal. There are many things happening in the world which ticks me the hell off. I, as a citizen in the ‘real’ world can’t change society with a flick of my hand, but my laptop keys can kick butt and change fallacies. I can write people to fulfill my dreams. I can have them do what needs to be done and get away with it. .
And because I think a proven rapist (especially of a child) should be caught and beaten to death on the spot and because I am tired of injustices in the judicial system where it seems sexual predators, pedophiles, and deviants have lenient sentences or get away with their crime I wrote The Fishing Trip. where the good guy is the grey matter. I know its not as easy as black and white, but I bet if redemption fell hard on creeps like that, this sort of crime would end quickly, I'm just sayin'. There are other countries that don't play with this part of society. Today I am starting interviews with the characters from THE FISHING TRIP @ In the Chair .
Come over and get to meet them.
My life demanding action (which must have been festering in my subconscious) caused me to write Beads on a String America's Racially Intertwined History. You can learn all about the reasons behind this enormous feat HERE.These are just a few of my steps unto my platform. I shall be polishing my words, strengthening my platform and building me a bookshelf. Because I shall write the perfect query to the perfect agent and I will need a place to put all my published books.
