7.Ken Scholes- Self Awareness: A Writer's First, Best Tool.

Tonight we spoke with Ken Scholes, author of the Psalms of Isaak Fantasy series from Tor books. Ken's topic for the night was an important one for beginning writers: knowing yourself as a person and as a writer. Knowing what methods work for you to not only thrive personally, but to thrive and succeed in your writing aspirations as well!

We were able to hear from Ken's own experiences that :

  • Working without an outline can (and does) lead to success.
  • Having a strong support network of family, friends and colleagues to encourage, motivate and even pester you can be intergal to your success as an author .
  • Triumph can often spring from personal tragedy.
  • Whether you're a seasoned professional, or a beginning writer- You're always "in the trenches".
And much much more!
