No matter if you’ve been writing for twenty years or if you are thinking about starting a book now – this is a question people will ask you, a question you’ll ask yourself again and again. What is a writer? How do I become one? What makes me a writer?
Resonance, when it comes to writing, is the ability to use other works (without plagiarizing) that resonate with your readers to promote your own book. The resonance may come simply from the genre you’re writing in, from the themes in your book, from similarities in names (like the book title) or characters.
