    I am so excited for you beauty! YOU may not think you are inspirational, but I can guarantee to someone you are! And you have inspired a lot of people with this blog and will inspire people with your book. The thing about writing a book is you can make it whatever you want it to be because YOU are the director of the pen and page. By just writing, you are already over coming the hard part. Keep at it beauty! <3

      I’m going to remember this comment, everytime I write! It’s been such a learning curve and I have gone back and forth between wanting to write, and then thinking, is this pointless? I will keep at it because I’m desperate for the book to be finished. I think it will actually inspire me knowing I’ve completed that goal. Thank you gorgeous! xx

    That first line is incredible. Its very different, intriguing and I was clinging on to know how the story unfolds. I’ve considered writing a book, and then found millions of reasons why not.. Hmm!

      Thank you! I was exactly the same. I’ve constantly told myself that I’m not ready or it won’t be good enough. But I’m just writing it now with the mindset that it’s for me, and whether a copy is bought or not, is irrelevant. I’ll probably share more on my book, as I get closer to finishing. 🙂

    This is beautiful and I’m so happy you’re doing this, I loved that excerpt. I’m currently writing a YA fiction novel and it’s the first time I feel I’m actually getting somewhere with it, I’ve started stories before but always lost hope with them after a while. Not this time! xxx

      Thank you hun! I’m so glad to hear that. I am terrible at fiction because I struggle with creating characters and ideas. I’ll be interested to see how you develop your story and when it’s completed. xxx

      You’re the sweetest! I have been super hesitant because I thought – how do I sell a book on me? But I’m going to try to find an angle and make it a worthwhile story. I might share more extracts futher along. x

    Ah thats great Laura, good for you. All the best with it my lovely xx. Its very well documented on my blog that I am a frustrated author lol. I have been writing a book for 20 years on and off. I have write a lot of chapters, but always end up re-working them. It will get out one day. its a fictional book x. I have also always had a huge love of poetry. I have a couple of note books full of them, and, on the encouragement of my writing course tutor a few years back, am looking to publish a book of poems. Its exciting, I am totally vulnerable in my poetry, but as my Mum said when I turned 45 in April, its time Kerry. Its time!

      Thank you Kerry! I remember reading a post of yours where you said your mum has motivated you to finish the book. I have a lot of admiration for you writing fiction. I’m not the best at creating characters or stories.
      I love poetry as well and I hope I can publish some too. I find poetry can be the most rawest or most personal form of writing. xx
