Thank you…

I wanted to firstly say a big THANK YOU to everyone for your feedback on ‘Reunited’. It was all extremely positive with some constructive criticism thrown in which I welcome more than anything. Hey, we can always improve on something right? 

My train journeys to work have been boring this week with no story to put together but I’ll be back with another one real soon. I enjoyed the ‘not knowing’ approach throughout. I had no idea week on week where Laura’s story was heading. Nor did I have a chance to edit the story along the way. It was a real challenge!
The past week has been an eventful one on the writing front and Saturday night I will always remember having taken part in a Q&A session with none other than Mark Edwards. A fantastic author offering some great advice.
So I’m now onto chapter 14 and have passed the halfway point. I am still enjoying every second of my story and I feel I’ve really got to know my characters personally. The middle part is the hard part but next comes the ending which I’m really looking forward to.
Now a very personal thank you to all my family and friends who have put up with my constant ‘book talk’ since this journey started. Your support and understanding of this new found love means so much. 

I’ll be back with another update soon and watch this space for another short story from yours truly.
Speak soon
Your author,

    It’s nice to see you’re enjoying the journey. I have to remind myself of that a lot when I’m trying to work on my novel and get some other writing pieces done, that it’s not all about the end goal, but enjoying the process. Good luck and well done so far! P.S, great choice of name for your protagonist 😉
