Admitting to being a writer is no easy thing; people look at you in a funny way, as if they are thinking, “Oh really? How come you haven’t got a proper job?” This is my proper job, I write. I have been ghostwriting blogs for the last couple of years and I’ve just finished writing my first book: Me & Gus on the Roof of the World (you can get in on Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com or your local Amazon site by typing in Danny Breslin). It is the true story of a journey I took from Nepal to China across the Himalayan mountain range and how it all went totally wrong. It tells of my severe altitude sickness, paranoia, organ harvesting Tibetan gangsters, evil mind control experiments and facing a Chinese firing squad. But apart from that it was great!
This blog is the story of the journey from start to finish of the writing process. I hope that what I write here might inspire other new writers and first time novellists and maybe, just maybe, save me from having to get a proper job.
