IMAGINATION IS EVERYTHING
How to create without writing; and fall asleep faster!
Imagination is everything for a writer. Finding the time to sit down and write amongst the noise of an assiduous career and a family (both of which are prosperous and enjoyable for me) isn’t easy. I work on my stories when I can, but there’s much a writer can do when they’re not writing to also create.
It’s the power of the imagination that can be used when you’re not writing.
When there’s never an abundance of time for a writer to be able to write, the ability to hone your skills and use the imagination as the key to the next story you wish to write can be everything. Doing it is simple; it’s simply a matter of timing.
I have a brief update on the novel I've been slowly working on in recent years, as well as my previously completed novel that I'm looking to self-publish. As a result of some significant life changes, and my career in the legal industry becoming incredibly more intense as a result of a big case the firm is involved in, much of my creative writing has taken a necessary backseat over the course of the last 18 months.
As this gloriously unusual English summer draws to a close - a summer of an American work conference; a few days away in the Cotswolds; a city break to Paris last week; and a relaxing R+R holiday in the Canary Islands next week - I will hopefully be afforded more time to focus on my current novel soon. That being said, the start of the 2018/19 rugby season is fast approaching, and I have yet another week away in America in October for work to look forward to. Despite the many reasons I've been unable to focus more on my writing, I have some provisionally positive news.
