Which book is my greatest achievement?

Considered in the light of relative difficulty to complete, there’s no contest.

‘A Taste of Life and Love in Australia’ wins, hands down!

Was it because I went into it,  somewhat overwhelmed having already finished the first, ’25 Stories of Life and Love in Australia’?

I’d scarcely had time to adjust to the idea that I was an author, by virtue of having written and published a book, yet I’d plunged headlong into a second!

Looking back, I vividly remember the struggle to keep going, to finish the job! The last ten pages or so seemed like the summit of Mt Everest! And somehow, I managed it: it was a fait accompli!

Incidentally, ‘A Taste…..’ is my personal favourite of all the Short Story books, since I confess to liking ‘The Girl Next Door’ and ‘A Song for Elle’ more than almost any other in the series. Thank goodness I didn’t give up!
