As mentioned yesterday, you get a bonus post this week. Another post from Wilmar Luna who shares his answers to some interview questions 🙂 If you missed yesterday’s post from Wilmar, you can find it here
Q01 – When did you decide you wanted to become a writer?
I first began writing stories featuring my friends and I at the age of 12.
Since I was a video game addict, I often imagined my online amigos as thieves, detectives, elite Special Forces commandos, and anything else that would require a team.
I was often the main protagonist and had a tendency to write myself as the guy who got to be with his high school crush. Sounds kind of pathetic now that I think about it. (No, the high school crush was not meant to be. Dodged a bullet with that one.)
Business Plans are a structured description of your idea, how you will manage it, how you will finance the idea, how you see it growing and expanding, the risks involved, how to minimise those risks etc etc.
In this era of self publishing, I have found that many (not all) of the self published books I’ve read haven’t really felt like completed, polished works. I am left asking questions throughout the entire book.

While the idea of just paper and pen may have been the tools needed back in the day for writers, most of us have more requirements now.
So here is my list of writer tools that I find useful. We are all different and so you might not need all of these, but I think at least some of these are good for every writer to have.
