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’ […]
