Welcome to my Blog

Hi.  My name is Tom Pollard, the author of Brogan and the Bandit King.  On this blog, I will be sharing my musings primarily on writing, but on various other things as they pop into my head.

A little about me:

Do you know what the difference is between a good writer and a bad one is?  Good writers write, bad ones don’t.

For a long time, I was a bad writer.  It’s not unfair to say that I’ve always had my head in the clouds, imagining all sorts of situations involving characters I had created.  Plenty of ideas, some good and some not, few were made into stories.

It was only a couple of years ago that I decided to start taking my writing seriously and so started work on my first book.  Having wrote it, I published it and left it that, to my mind it would sell what it sold…it didn’t sell much.  It was time to get real, become a good writer.  This is part of the reason for the creation of this blog and an assortment of other things.

So please join me on this tricky journey, as I move towards becoming a full-time writer.
