The writing journey begins

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.
