Being authentic requires that you be in touch with yourself. Ask yourself who you are (That is, how how do you define yourself?). What makes you happy? What are your passions (beyond writing, of course!)? Does your writing reflect who you are and what you feel most strongly about?
My name is Rob Bignell. I’m an affordable, professional editor who runs Inventing Reality Editing Service, which meets the manuscript needs of writers both new and published. I also offer a variety of self-publishing services. During the past decade, I’ve helped more than 300 novelists and nonfiction authors obtain their publishing dreams at reasonable prices. I’m also the author of the 7 Minutes a Day… writing guidebooks, four nonfiction hiking guidebook series, and the literary novel Windmill. Several of my short stories in the literary and science fiction genres also have been published.
