I'm a slow writer. It probably has something to do with the fact I don't plan my novels so I can happily write a whole book before deciding I don't like the direction it's taking and have to go back to the beginning! One day, maybe, I'll learn how to write the right way. So, … Continue reading Happy birthday, Grace!
I wrote a short story, once, with that title - How to be Happy. I know - pretty shocking for something with 'happy' in the title to come from my pen, but there you go. It's still in draft form, so I may even get back to it at some point. I chose that title … Continue reading How to be Happy
