Interview with Daniel Hall of Selling Electrons Magazine
My own story of how I came to writing
My own story is that my earliest ideas of what I want to do from age 5 on were to, own my own business, work with TV and film, make products and write books. I have now done all of these things. The hardest one was writing books. I am dyslexic. For me writing was just about impossible. I could barely put a sentence together for most of my life. If I don’t get a word out correctly the first time it is gone. I was the kid in class that built the projects to get out of the writing assignment. All through high school and college I struggle to write anything. I changed my major in my senior year second semester just so I wouldn’t have to write a thesis.
When I worked in the corporate world different managers would help me out with memos and writing. I didn’t learn to write until in was in my early 50s. I then started blogging and just forced myself to put words down, I was just determined to write stuff. Around that time I just happen to take an internet marketing course that made you write out a business plan in small little chunks. I did that, combined with my blogging and when the course was done some kind of switch happened in my head and I could write. And I haven’t stopped since. It just pours out. It is all non fiction, how to kind of stuff but never stops. I
now love to write. It went from torture to joy. I plan writing assignments for when I fly on planes. I take off days and go and write. It is such a joy to be able to put words down. I wish I had some fiction stories in my head, but i don’t, but I am ok with what I write. You never know how it is going to work out. Never give up.
