One long term goal crossed off 😃

Hi everyone, I started writing a book back in 2018 inspired by my family history . Some truth and a lot of my imagination . When I had my stroke August 2021 I cried a lot thinking that I would never be able to complete it . Well I have ! And it’s being proof read now .
I ll let you know when it’s on Amazon​:joy::joy:
Having a goal that’s nothing to do with my arm or leg as helped so much . writing and any Hobby old or new are so important I think in order to switch off from stroke symptoms
Best wishes to you all :kissing_heart:

Good to hear that you are on the creative road ChristineC. I too am a ‘writer’ but apart from local publishing, I have yet to break into the serious end of writing. I have written most of my life, but not yet had to courage to reach out to an agent or a publisher. Good on you for getting there. I wish you the best for your new venture.

Thankyou for your replies and best wishes. I’ve sent my manuscript to a publisher now .and off to start my next book now haha . So important to have an interest in something after stroke to take your mind off it . I joined an online writing forum and chatted to people who were all writing a novel . Their encouragement like this forum helped me enormously .
Hope you’re all doing well xx

Hope you’re on the best seller list & the booker prize before the end of next year. (before the end of this year seems more optimistic)

Well done
Simon

Hi Christine 2, Just out of interest which ‘online forum’ have you joined? I have tried many times to get a writers group going, but never been that succesful. I was in an online many years ago but it seemed a very closed shop at the time. I haven’t done any writing at all since my stroke in Oct, concentration not so good! Can’t wait to get back to it though!

Hi there the website is called Now Novel members are from all around the world . They have webinars and opportunities to have your work critiqued and for you to critique other members work too . Friendly people who certainly encouraged me to keep going even after my stroke . Good luck to you and hope you get back to your writing soon
Best wishes
