I am a mother of two children ready to follow their own paths. I am heading towards fifty and at a crossroads in my life. I need to rediscover myself, find out what I want, what I enjoy, what I need now. Start on a fresh path of my own. I’m scared. I don’t feel ready. But I have made a decision. I will try to write that novel I’ve always wanted to write.

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 finding myself again.

One day I hope to finish my book.
