The website is now up and running and developing nicely. I can't wait until I have the cover of "Harcourt's Mountain" in there. And then "The Device Hunter"! I will be posting my blogs on my Facebook page as well as here. So no-one will miss out.
Isn't it odd how we discover that spark that explodes our dreams from hope into reality? Sometimes we know what we want to do as kids and when we grow up it happens. Hurrah! Bells, whistles, dancing girls, annoying paparazzi.
But that seldom happens.
The rest of us chase these dreams from job to job, pushing as hard as we can to make those dreams reality. Until something happens. We either snap and give up in despair, or we realize that it wasn't external forces but rather internal ones keeping us earth bound.
"Making movies" was always my dream. Until I started writing my first novel. It was then I realized that it wasn't so much making movies as telling stories that I always wanted to do.
Outside of my full time job, when I'm writing, my life makes sense. I get up and go to bed at reasonable and regular hours, I get exercise, and lose weight, I eat better - even managing those elusive three meals a day and eight glasses of water that escape me at other times. My happiness level soars. I feel most alive when I'm writing, my stress levels disappear. I find myself smiling a lot more. Of course, there's also the complete obsession with the book. Very little exists beyond the universe and the characters on the page. But who cares! HERE'S TO WRITING!
