Writing in Fuerteventura

Once again here I am writing in Fuerteventura with a great sense of peace to help me along. My aim is 7000 - 10,000 words a week and sometimes I make it. Other times.... not. I have been ill for a week, I have returned to the UK for my step-daughter's wedding for a week, I have done some appraisals for writers for a week. But I have written almost 40,000 words in 6 weeks, so I'm not complaining.

“Eccentrics, Tess thought. From the Latin ex centro. Away from the centre, resistant to the centralising process that made everyone the same. It wasn’t easy to be eccentric, she concluded. To be brave enough. And she rather thought that she would have liked Edward Westerman.”
Rosanna Ley, The Villa: Escape to Sicily with the Number One Bestseller

“The time was long gone for seeing ghosts from the past, for fantasising about destiny. She had made her decision many years ago – and there was surely no way of ever going back.”
Rosanna Ley, The Lemon Tree Hotel

“Or as an antipasti – to undress the appetite. Hot and satisfying, crisp and succulent. A deep-fried Arab legacy.”
Rosanna Ley, The Villa
