I am writing this with a fuzzy head after watching the Leinster game, which involved a few too many beverages! Writing has been on the slim side this week due to college restarting and an exam on Friday. However I have been writing a diary style project for a new character called Sadie. With no plot or pressure it is a pleasure to just let her unfold.
The story of the week has been the Lance Armstrong interview with Oprah and am stunned by the arrogant narcissism that is part of his make-up and the main element that drove him to make bad choices. A great athlete he is no longer.
I have decided this week to tackle the first draft of my novel ‘A Telltale Heart’ with the benefit of fresh eyes and deeper insight into the characters and story. Time to strip back and start again.
January is long but it holds great promise…
