I’ve always wanted to write a book. When I was in High School I did a lot of writing, and even won some awards for my short stories, and had a couple of short plays produced. But in more recent times, my writing has been mostly for business.
Recently, I have started writing again. I have a pile of short stories as well as at least 2 books that are in the process of being written. I’m loving writing again, just for the sake of writing.
One of my favourite places to write is in my brother’s cafe. I take my laptop and set up for the day. I make sure I have money for lunch and numerous cups of tea or chai or juice and they are happy for me to site there.
Now, I have no idea when these books will be published, or even if they will. But for now, I’m just enjoying writing again. I’m even giving myself permission to write just for the pure enjoyment of it, instead of feeling guilty for writing, especially when I spend a whole day in the cafe!!
Just wait, one day you may be able to say “I knew her when…”
