Episode 113 – Coming Back to Writing

On this episode of Diving into Writing, Mariëlle and Lucinda talk about their writing journeys and how they kept coming back to it over the years.

Here are some of the topics that came up:

  • How Lucinda always knew she was going to write but didn’t actually start writing until she was in her early forties. It took her another year before she started taking her writing seriously.
  • Mariëlle started writing much younger but kept it a secret until she was twenty-eight. Only after learning about indie publishing did she start to take her writing utterly seriously. 
  • Mariëlle learning about Lucinda’s published fan fiction and why that excites her to no end.
