Why authors are just like Olympic athletes

If you are an author, have you ever wondered what you have in common with Olympic athletes?
I’ve never skied in my life. Quite frankly, the weather in the UK is rubbish, and once September arrives, I count down the days until mid to late March when we are promised at least a little bit of sunshine and warmth. I have an extreme dislike of cold weather, but watching the winter Olympics in Vancouver, coupled with enjoying the gorgeous scenery in Sky HD, has inspired me to want to be the next British skeleton champion. The speed, the exhilaration, the excitement, and even the wait as you take your place on the starting line at the sliding centre is just like writing a novel. Our experiences are not much different – both the athlete and the author have desires to be the best at their game and nothing stops them in the quest for that number one position.
