I am an ex-home educating mother of two children who are now following their own paths. I have reached fifty and a crossroads in my life. I need to find out what I want, what I enjoy, what I need. Start on a fresh path of my own. I’m a bit scared. I don’t feel ready. But I have made a decision. I will get back into writing. I may even write that novel that’s been stuck in my head for a long while.

I have no idea how blogs work or what I am supposed to do. This is a journey of discovery, experiences and learning. There may be failures, there may be embarrassments. I want there to be creativity, experiment and new-found confidence. This blog will be a record of me writing a novel. Or trying to. I’m not sure what I’ll post, perhaps it won’t just be about writing. It might be about me facing some new challenges.

One day I hope to finish my book.
