It has been an emotionally heavy few weeks for me. But I am now hoping I’m on the right track.

I have always had this problem of when an idea hits, I get so involved it that it takes up a lot of my time. It doesn’t help that the a lot of ideas tend to hit me and ultimately I find it difficult to finish a project.

When thinking about my first full length novel and what it should be, several things occurred to me.

– It would have to be a novel I knew in and out. Back to front.
– Characters I knew so well that they were like family.
– Something that when I finished, it would be like the beginning of an awesome journey.

So I decided that I should work on the novel that has been in my head for fourteen years.

A novel so close to my heart that I think about it every single day with fondness and dream about the day it’s finished and the pride I will feel.

So that’s exactly what I am doing. I’m writing that novel.

Wish me luck.
