Wow! Definitely a contrast to ponder. I wrote one work related book specific to that place of work. It took about 9 months. I would like to try fiction. My wanders a lot, so unsure if it would ever reach the end.
Thank you Alan. I believe your advice is very sound and well heeded :-) I like the analogy with a child. I can see it is like raising child within life.
Interesting. How is it there in the UK this moment? Nice I hope. I just went back to review all those books I started last year - 3. Now, how to choose one . . . only one to begin that quest of 4 - 10 years while continuing exploring writing. hmmm ..
I love writing, I just wish I could do it quicker. As for the weather, the heavens just opened up with hail that looked as neat as bean bag filler, I lost Internet connection for 10 min, but now the sun is shining and I'm back online. Yay
Hooray! Great to have a connection I am sure. As I am awake in the wee hours here in California there is rain dancing outside the window. A blessing for us since we are in a drought. Almost 1" (2.5cm) fell yesterday. The garden will love that.
Ooh Tim. Fancing swapping?
Lesley I have a very dearest friend in Sweden. I feel odd and out of tune when I share with her how sunny the day is as it plummets rain there and so often. Yet, this drought is costing the world with the farmer's plight. Sad really . . .
