It is not that easy.
You have an idea.
You sit down and take a piece of paper.
You take a biro or a pencil (I remember all the remarks the American writer John Steinbeck made on his pencils, making an effort in getting the right ones).
You write page after page.
Your re-write page after page.
And finally the end is near.
The next step is on the way: how to get a publisher?
This is what the South African writer Alex van Tonder talks about.
