Today I hit a middle milestone and I have to be honest here and say that I would prefer to hit it in better shape. Just last week I was declared clinically severely obese ( I carry all my weight about my middle), I am in the throws of menopause (a bit early not not unusually so), our life here is still on a temporary standing, and I still haven't cracked the getting published thing. However being the person I am I have to say that despite the above I am in good health as is the the whole family (thank God), we are not broke, I love my husband and children and they love me. So basically life is good in fact very good.
On the writing front I know that it will probably be at minimum book five or six that will break me through. Does this discourage me? A bit if I am honest but it won't stop me. Even if i never reach publication I will continue to write and hopefully to grow in my writing.
And with that thought I am back into A Cornish House trying to release the emotion that I know Maddie has but I have withheld from her..........do you deny your character anything?
