My absence from blog land over the past few weeks is not because of a lack of interest, but because I have been side tracked, to fulfill one of my lifelong ambitions to have a book published. I have written a lot over the years, but some how events have always conspired against me, so nothing was ever finished. Maybe it was just that I did not have enough motivation - I am over that hurdle now.
What I have come to appreciate is that writing is hard work. It takes a combination of dedication, inspiration and motivation. What I have also found is that what seems good today sounds trite tomorrow, so it is a case of edit, edit and re-edit.
If I was only working on one book it would probably be much simpler, but I have been working on five. A novel, a short story and three children's books. When the inspiration strikes, I just go with the flow.
