Beginnings 12th January 2010
I’ve just been engaging in a bit of nostalgia and looking back through my blog archives to January 2010, which saw my first posts.
Yes, I know checking the archives is up there with emails, facebook etc as a means of procrastination. WRITE THE NOVEL! But it is interesting to read that first post, and consider how far I’ve come since then.
I was waiting for Unravelling to be published in May 2010. I had decided to do a major rewrite of The Piano Player’s Son. I’d entered two short stories into a Fish competition. All four of those works have now been published, and other short stories and flash fictions too. And so much else has happened as well. We spend so much time looking forward; setting ourselves goals; frustrated with our apparent lack of achievement; expecting more and more. All this is good, but every so often perhaps it’s a positive thing to look back and feel grateful.
You can read that first post here.
And now – Lindsay Stanberry-Flynn get on with that NOVEL!
