It’s pretty simple! Writing brings up so many possibilities, were anything and everything is possible. When you write, you are the god. You have total freedom and deep control over the world. You can make things the way you want them to be. You can forge destinies…and destroy them, realise dreams…and break them. There are no limits; there are no constraints, only infinite freedom to express your own will.

The exact point when the story begins to catch fire and comes to life on the page is an exhilarating moment. As the plot gathers pace and begins to ripe the benefit from all the story building that has gone on before it, I find myself becoming a reader as well as the author. Everything suddenly makes sense and it is a feeling that is satisfying, fulfilling and also strange at the same time.

From beginning to end, writing is a journey, an emotional roller coaster that, once completed, leaves you addicted and thirsty for more.

The Book Journey

Ok, so here’s the thing, I have a novel coming it soon. You know, those things that have words written on paper? Actually, this novel is an e-book, so it’s not exactly made out of paper but you get the idea. A long selection of words that when put together present a narrative, typically representing character and action with some degree of realism. That’s the technical term anyway.
