Diana Gabaldon's 30th writing anniversary
Today marks 30 years since Diana Gabaldon began writing, "for practice", the novel that would become OUTLANDER. She started writing on March 6, 1988.
Congratulations, Diana!! And we wish you many more happy, productive, and successful years of writing! Thank you so much for creating this amazing story. It really has changed my life, in so many ways.
Here's Diana's story of How It All Began, originally posted on the Compuserve Books and Writers Community (now TheLitforum.com) on the occasion of her 22nd "writing anniversary", in March 2010. I think you'll find it interesting, particularly those of you who've discovered OUTLANDER in the last several years and may not have heard the full story before.
