After 34 years as a full-time artist and 6 years teaching art & design at the university level, I stopped all that and began to write. That was 2005. I’ve been writing ever since (10 books).
It was 9 years writing, 2 writing groups, 9 books on how to write, 2 writing workbooks, articles for 3 websites, and more, before I felt ready to self-publish, in June 2018.
My biggest challenge has been: to find literary agent and a traditional publisher.
My biggest reward has been: to see my work in print, and to receive positive feedback from readers of my books.
Most of my writing time is now spent: requesting book reviews. I also teach classes on the Six-Step Path I teach in my book “An End to Stress”.
Advice: Follow your heart; your passion. If it is to write, then write.
I’m most grateful for: my health, my family, my friends, my satisfying life.
Advice to my 18-year old self: Be patient. Give more attention to details.
My favorite thing about being a writer is: like my art (34 years), it is a positive outlet for my creativity and something to share with others.
My least favorite thing about being a writer is: the struggle to gain entry to the traditional world of writing.
My goals for the future: to keep writing, teaching, and living a healthy life.
I love living a creative life because: it feels right for me, always has.
The last book I read was: “How to be your own Literary Agent”.
My favorite book ever is: “The Dao of Now” by Josh Baran .
Outside of writing, my favorite hobby is: camping with my wife, Linda.
The most important thing to do if you want to achieve your goals is: perseverance and hard work.
My 6 books currently in print can be found on Amazon…paperbacks and Kindles. Also, on my website: http://donlubov.com. They cover the following genres: sci-fi, spirituality, memoir, crime/thriller, children’s picture book, an anthology of short prose & poetry.
Readers can find me at my website: http://donlubov.comand I regularly write comments on Quora.
