Everything feels new, strange, the world of writing and blogging is so foreign, but exciting. There is an overload of information out there on how to write a book, what to do, what not to do and how to do it! I just want to write, but it does not come easy.
I still remember 27 years ago sitting my HSC, pen in hand, heart pounding, pressure building as I had absolutely no idea how to write a short narrative story. No idea where to start, let alone how to end. You may think I winged my way through, but no english: FAIL!
So fast forward now “I am writing a book!” am I crazy? yes! but why not give it a go.
See I have something to say!
The first book I am writing is non-fiction: The true story of my sisters kidnapping 48 years ago, the extraordinary circumstances around her abduction and her abductor. My book does not yet have a title but it has a face! In my attempt to write what happened that day from the newspaper clippings and from the perspective of those that were there. This story needs to be told.
Through this blog, I hope to document my journey as a new writer attempting to write.
