Getting There…..

8 Jan

There’s nothing like reaching a goal to put a smile on one’s face.

Today, I finished the first revision of my soon-to-be published book: and, as each milestone is reached, a sense of intense satisfaction overtakes me.

Doubtless, many activities in countless fields of endeavour are capable of producing such good feelings.  Be it literature, music, art, sport or anything else: what beats reaching the goal, and being happy with the result?

I have dabbled in many things: in fact, all of the above: but somehow writing seems to capture my greatest sense of purpose and meaning.  For me, nothing beats the glow of delight in holding a brand new title in my hands.

Part of the pleasure in this lies in the fact that it’s the end product of collaboration between myself and Ron, my husband. His role as editor and cover designer are vital to the quality of  finished project: and, with customary talent, he performs these tasks admirably.

The title is still top secret: but, hopefully by February, all will be revealed.

Watch this space.
