2014 has been quite a year. In some ways, it's been a quiet year. It's been all about the small things. Watching my girls grow from babies into toddlers, both developing their own personalities and quirks. Developing ways of keeping an eye on both of them, learning when it's okay, they're busy exploring the world. I've delighted in these moments more than anything. Time with my two gorgeous daughters is precious. And still, I've squeezed in some writing. When they are tackling finger food in the high chair, a journey when I get to be passenger, an evening when I still have energy in reserve. The MS has gone from 3,000 words to about 50,000 and although it's been slow progress, I wouldn't want it any other way. Fortunately my NWS report was very positive, making it worth the additional grey hairs.
2015 is set to be more writing focused. I'm starting a new writing evening group, Southampton Scribes, designed to help find time to write. I also plan to get to 'The End.' I might even be brave enough to submit to agents and publishers. Well, after twins, editors and agents don't seem so scary.
