When writing is a first love, where does an author go in between books? For me blogging filled the gap. A chance to depart from the world of fiction to write about the everyday, just where my stories are rooted. I was tempted to stop! I was feeling far too much like Harriet! Inevitable disillusionment for those who know me! Insight to the source of inspiration for those who don’t! It’s life either side of The Big 40! No delete button! So here it is for posterity. In the nest. Watching the others A fledgling waiting for wings. Dreaming a flight of fancy!'
