Suffering for my Art – stop laughing!
I know that sounds very pretentious and I am only kidding. But, I have been suffering – still am as you know, and writing is pure agony. The Art bit comes in because I have been writing in spite of it all – I can hear a big moan coming from somewhere!
Actually it is painful sitting for any length of time and typing hurts like hell, but I got sick of not writing and not getting on with things, so believe it or not, I completed my part of my co-written book two weeks ago. I got to write The End. What a sense of achievement and relief.
It is now out of my hands for the time being and I have 3 more to complete – on my own this time – before the year is over. So I shall be spending more time with ‘Ms Birdsong’ as she ‘Investigates’ and with some luck she will solve the crimes soon and I can then move on to completing ‘God’s Waiting Room’.
More information with photographs is available about these two books – in previous postings here, and if you click on About – just under the banner. Lots to read there, and of course under Blog lots more to read there…so click away, have a browse and let me know your thoughts.
I have to complete another book I’ve been working on, ‘It’s A Long Way To Tipperary’ – such an original title I’m sure you’ll agree. Actually it was and is a long way there…no kidding. This book is based on tracing a Family Tree and the eventual meeting of long-lost family (in Tipperary) after 20 years of research – you see where the ‘Long Way’ comes in now…..and it follows their adventures in Tipperary following their epic reunion. Again click under About and you will find information and photographs.
This photo was taken in Tipperary not far from ‘The ancestors’.
Like ‘God’s Waiting Room’ this is a humorous story mostly, though tinged with some sadness at times. I haven’t killed anyone off (for a change) but there is a body in it….one that has problems finding a resting place…but I won’t give the story away here!
In addition to the projects listed above I am still writing Short Stories and Flash Fiction and believe it or not I have 60,000 words of a music related story which I have not touched in almost a year. I think I won’t get into too much mischief with all this on the go. My Grandmother used to say ‘The Devil makes work for idle hands’ – don’t think she can accuse me of that!
