Updates on the writing life

It’s almost ten o’clock and it’s been raining here since four in the morning.

I’m on my fourth cup of tea this morning as I read Priestess of the White by Trudi Canavan.

The past few weeks have involved a lot of supervision on my part at work given that there are ongoing construction projects in the schools I’ve been visiting here. It’d be awesome to have pupils resume learning in January 2020 and they move from studying in tin houses to permanent brick classrooms with proper ventilation.

One of the biggest highlight of my writing life has been meeting friends, strangers who become family and a host many more as I sell copies of my book. I still struggle with making my writing a bit bigger, however, it’s always a thrill to write something personal on each copy that I sell to people.

friends who support my writing

I am learning that writing, publishing and selling books are three very different processes and whereas I may be comfortable with one or two, getting the experience of all is far much better.

It’s made me more understanding or tolerant of book publishers 🙂

So, here’s to more writing opportunities and experiences in the coming days.

Have a lovely weekend!
