I was meant to be having an internet free day, the husband and baby have gone out and I was going to finally finish THE BOOK.
But, of course, I couldn't help myself and clicked on a few of my favourite blogs. Where I saw a book with such a great title I went straight to Goodreads to find out what it was about. Guess what I found?
Of course it won't be completely my book. I know that. I know that every author brings their own experiences, style etc.
It has enough similarities to make me want to cry though, or throw something, or eat a large tub of ice cream.
I am not going to do any of those things. Although my general tendency is to think the glass is half full (and chipped) I am going to try and be a glass half full, with cute umbrella stuck in a lemon wedge, person today.
See about 20,000 words into The Book I had to decide whether to go Path A or Path B. I choose A, but I could go back and do B now.
Or I could work on the shiny new idea.
Or I could brain storm all the ideas I had on holiday.
Anyway I will not cry, or throw things* and I will NOT stop writing. I shall remember how much I learned writing the book, and how much fun it was, and I shall channel Churchill and Never, Never, Never Give Up!
* I reserve the right to eat that tub of ice cream.
