I am a nearly forty year old mum of two. At some point over the last fourteen years I seem to have forgotten that I am a real person too; with my own interests and ambitions. Recently things came to a head when I applied for a new job. I was unsuccessful this time but I got the chance to look at my life and realised that maybe instead of trying to get fulfilment from my job I should try to get it somewhere else.
This blog is the attempt to do just that. I have always enjoyed reading and have a long standing ambition to write a novel. Hopefully reading other peoples books will help me do just that. After all, the most common piece of advice given to budding authors is to read. A lot!
Update 26th March 2016:
Well, I am now over the fortieth birthday barrier and things have changed slightly since I wrote the above. I have a different job now which I enjoy more and have managed to keep in touch with some of the colleagues from the previous job. I still read whenever I get the opportunity, alongside studying for accountancy exams which hopefully will allow me to eventually get a higher paid job, and I still have multiple ideas that zip into my head and make me think “that would be a good idea for a book”. Perhaps at some point I will stop procrastinating and get on and write one of them to full length.
