Writing

“Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.”
—George Orwell

Well, whatever the demons  its time they were exorcised. On this page I’ll occasionally blog about my experiences of trying to write my first novel.

Following long conversations with my wonderful coach I was set the task of writing for one hour every day.  I succeeded some, but not all, of the days since. Its a discipline and, much like the gym, once I’ve started I don’t want to stop. The very next day I can think of a million things I’d rather do and create any number of hurdles to keep me away from my desk. Luckily I have enough demons to drive me on. Looking forward to seeing how my characters take shape. All support and encouragement will be most welcome.
