The First Post...

I decided that I couldn't really blog about my book, so I would just blog about writing. The ambition to become something that is a minefield of variables; your life’s work… Dependent on how someone feels on any given day – or maybe they just don’t particularly like the genre I’m writing in. 

Then, if that wasn’t enough, we have to add human nature into the equation.  I write romance and it lands on an editor’s desk.  Normally, this editor is swanning around the office in a state of utter bliss, but last night she discovered erotic text messages on her husband’s phone – I’m sure you get my point. 

For the record, I don't write romance, I write horror.  Why?  Who the Hell knows.  I don't believe we choose what we write; it chooses us.

But back to wanting to become a writer...  I’d have had it just as easy if I'd woken up one morning, rolled over and thought to myself “I want to be an astronaut”.
