If you follow my blog, you know I've been a writer for many years.
Every bit of experience counts. Whether it's writing a piece for a club newsletter, trying your hand at reporting your own collecting history, praising common coins or rare coins...research on one topic can lead to other interests, more story ideas, collecting ideas. Keep going, keep up with what's current, and don't hesitate to get out and meet people with the same interests.
The more you learn, it seems, the more there is to learn. New discoveries are being made all the time. Beginners, professionals, everyone in between, has something to offer. Maybe it's an experience, or a point of view. And this doesn't apply only to coins. Whatever your avocation or career may be, experience and hard work lead to good things.
This happened years ago, when I wrote my coin book. And it's happening now. This morning I got word, a publisher has a request for contract on my latest manuscript. Stay tuned!
