Forest Brothers – the novel is coming very soon! Estonia, midges and all…

Last leg of the final edit of the story and there is a quiet delight at how far I have progressed with it. The mission now is to complete the latest edit and watch out for the many things you assume are there – punctuation marks are so easily missed over. Also, in Estonian speech, I have elected to omit the use of the words ‘a’ and ‘the’, to reflect the different structure of the language. Trying to get my brain to recognise this and not add them is quite tricky at times!

After this, I need to read it again from start to finish to ensure it is flowing, there are no continuity breaks and that the characters personalities are showing and not schizophrenic!

More soon! Possibly another interview!

Stuck in a limbo and desperate to do something meaningful, what to do? That is where writing began for me. A creative way of expressing myself and a chance to harness my wondering imagination. I close my eyes and I'm there. Wish I'd picked 'there' as a warm sunny day on a sandy beach, with the waves gently lapping on the shore...but I have to let the story load in my mind, then watch it unfold, wherever it may be. Currently I'm in an Estonian forest being bitten by midges
