These are what novels are based on, real life events, and letters of love found in an attic in an old 1940′s suitcase. I’m pleased to say I kept all these letters. The paper is noticeably finer than that of paper today. I have enough material here to keep me going for the next 100 years or more.
Yes and I’m so darn excited about it. What a buzz it is working with a small film crew on a book trailer for “Things I Did When No One Was Watching.” So be sure to “watch this space” in the coming weeks as the excitment builds up.

The Glass Prison
I longed to be out, smelling of perfume, and dressed in high heels with my long hair flowing in the dusk of an evening gazing into the eyes of a lover over an intimate candlelit dinner followed by a walk on the beach. Oh what a fabulous imagination I had when the mundane set in. I took myself off to all kinds of places in my head.
If push came to shove, would I spend time with a lonely reminiscing woman who was in her last stages of life, listening to her tiresome and repetitive stories or would I jump in my car, and speed away to meet my lover who insisted on seeing me on a dark moonlit evening. My conscience already had the answer. Of course I would stay and listen to such ramblings. Here I was I after coming back from Melbourne where my mother and I were homeless and living in our little old car where we had ended up renting a condemned house, no money in the bank it was hand to mouth while doing a job I hated to the core and no support.
Don’t Want To Be Misunderstood? Don’t Be Great, according to Peter James Sinclair of “Motivational Memo” and I certainly have to agree with him. Are you seeking an upgraded version of you. Lets see what Peter says!
Think you need a great imagination to be a writer? not necessarily. However what you do need is courage to shovel all of your secret thoughts “out,” and be prepared for the “action” to take place. Never dumb yourself down.
What genre sells? Good question. I don’t really think anyone has the real answer to this one, and it’s certainly NOT one genre is popular with the world, but what I do know is this… people love being shocked & terrified They love to be made to “feel” something or moved by a story or novel.
You can write about anything you like and make it a moving experience, where it grips the reader. Take the novel “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Yes I read it, and my opinion of the story seemed like “Mills & Boon” with sex.
Perhaps they felt the book was so poorly written that they had to make a movie out of it just to give it an extra push. Seriously one of my favourite movies is “Gone With the Wind,” not because of my age. The story had depth and precision, not to mention the beautiful costumes of the time, and it made the imagination work.
Anyhow, I’m not giving away all of my secrets of passion just yet because I would like your feedback.
* Have you
* Ever wanted to be a writer
* Need the Courage to start
* Worried about bad grammar & spelling
* Worried about what people will think if you write about your secret passions
Once you’ve read my book “Things I Did When No one was watching,” you’ll find the courage to begin your journey as a writer. Emotions don’t usually go anywhere, no one ever see’s them, they’re invisible. I use my emotions to create they are a tool of the trade. Allow them flow freely.
New trailer to the movie “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
I love honest feedback so go on don’t leave me to talk to myself here…
