I do have days when the words plod onto the page one agonizing keystroke at a time. But I find that if I push through this, suddenly inspiration strikes and the words fly from my fingertips. I also aim to write the first draft very quickly--over a number of weeks, rather than months--so I don't have time to over think the story.(less)

The Making of Christina by Meredith Jaffe
"3.5 stars rounded up to 4.

Despite misgivings about some uneven writing (I don't want to read the line 'she loved him with every fibre of her being' outside of a Mills & Boon publication), once I hit the half way point, I did sit glued to the s..." Read more of this review »

"A solo mother, a young daughter and a rich older man. This book is very well-written but the subject matter stops me from saying I enjoyed reading it. I would give it 4.5 stars if I could."
