Thought for today:
‘I went for years not finishing anything. Because, of course, when you finish something you can be judged.’
— Erica Jong

This quote is a reminder that the book I started 5 years ago, writing in a cottage in the Highlands, remains unfinished.
If I had known then what I know now, would things have been different?
Day three of seven days of writing, yesterday went well and ended on 1,500 words.
More importantly, I needed some credible but fictional characters (it’s a non-fiction book).
They need to be diverse, reflective of the UK, named, aged, and with a profile (home, work, family).
I needed at least 24 and managed 54 yesterday, so feeling a bit chuffed about that.
Also, my idea rabbits have been breeding, so I have an additional section to add, I realise it was “missing”.
I also needed to source about a dozen quotes that I haven’t used here, thankfully I have a library of quotation books!
