Chapter Two -Arm wrestling with a novel, and life.

2017-07-06 17.24.23

I am reduced to drinking espresso, they are quicker to make. I am learning what it is to squeeze the necessary tasks of life into what I really want to be doing, ALL the TIME. I didn’t imagine that my head would be crammed and attention arrested so entirely with this book writing process. I have asked my husband to please let me know when I am abandoning him. My children are learning how to resolve their own conflict (badly).

I have spent a week plotting – from dialogue to denouements, I have developed character arcs and researched endlessly.

This chapter by chapter posting is unorthodox when you have absolutely no idea what will happen next yourself!

    Ha! I know exactly the feeling! My wife will talk to me and my head is with someone else, fortunately fictional. She literally has to grab my cheek and shake me to attention. The kids don’t care anyway.

  2. What an exciting new adventure! I find that staying in my pyjamas all day also saves time 😊


    1. Haha, yes that’s true, one day drove the kids to school and got out to chat to another mum forgetting that I was wearing them! Some days I get to the evening and ask myself “What’s that smell?” only to realise I had forgotten to shower.
