many of my friends and certainly my wife and son
would attest to, I have never had a shortage of imagination.
Writing has offered me another form of release for the vast herds
of wildebeest wandering the
Serengeti of my brain. (Hmm not sure that was a good comparison
the Serengeti at times is a vast empty plain )
About three years ago my wonderful partner gave me
Julia Cameron's book "The Artist's Way". I read it and applied
what I think is the most important advice in this book.
Write a minimum of three pages a day in longhand. It could
be three pages of anything and indeed that's what it was until the
idea for a novel came into my head. Since then I have finished a
total of three novels with another in the works. The first will be
released this year with more to follow.
Thankfully retirement from my day job has
allowed me to write to my hearts content. Well almost, after
all there is my music and art.
