Time to put pen to paper

I have realised that the year has slipped by and the blog posts stopped.

I have moved to a new day job. There hasn’t been much to say. That’s a lie. The year has been quite busy, at times interesting and I just haven’t created time to post.

The prequel is at draft stage. Ready to hit that important desk. It is a back story that takes you from the time of the ‘red terror’ deportations in Estonia to the beginning of the novel ‘Forest Brothers’. I am still hopeful it will move forward to publication in the near future, but alas, no timescales. It’s a shame, as the story does answer a few questions created by Forest Brothers and I think, with a hint of bias, it’s a good story. 🙂

To while away the hours that time allows, I started a sequel. I didn’t have a story to start with, then it became a desire to give Juhan some more exposure. Then some old characters began to knock on the door. then some very old characters and a very feisty new character. Before you knew it… I was away on a new adventure. The story begins around the start of 1945 and I suppose VE day is not too far away. What next?

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
