Muditha has always been fascinated with the supernatural. So she combined that interest with a very old legend from her native country of Sri Lanka to create a fascinating story. The legend she drew from says that a woman lost a child and her life at birth. Now as a vengeful spirit, that woman haunts anyone who walks alone in the middle of the night. Muditha’s book, The Villa, is developed around this legend. However, with so many competing demands on her life, she may have never completed her manuscript without the help of the ALC.
“I find myself juggling a full-time job, being a wife, mother, home-maker, and finally a writer. Sometimes, when I sit in front of my computer after a tough day, I am exhausted, but I remember reading an article on the ALC on persisting as a writer during times of personal hardship or struggle. This was quite relevant to me because I constantly face challenges as a writer.
In fact, that is one of the most valuable things about the ALC. It is so helpful to receive various pieces of advice from experienced authors on a regular basis. I especially appreciate the marketing advice because this is a struggle for self-published authors.
Life will bring challenges and roadblocks, but it is worth it to persist because once your book is done, you can bask in the immense joy and fulfillment it brings.
