The Old Pilcrow
The Old Pilcrow is the personal blog of aspiring novelist Aaron Smith. Aaron, who feels incredible awkward talking about himself in the third person, is just starting out as a writer and is struggling with the same issues that many writers have. He doesn't have enough time, is exhausted, distracted, and generally discouraged. But so what, he is confident that he will make it and will work really hard to make that happen. The Old Pilcrow promises to share his story of working towards becoming a bestselling author. Readers will find inspiration from a variety of sources to fuel their creativity, get motivated to continue writing with simple how-tos, learn the specifics of the craft to make them a better writer, get timely information on conference, events, and class to broaden their network, and meet others like them to build a support team. Cause hey, we’re all just learning.
