This morning I woke up with the opening paragraph of my autobiography in my head! This is really strange because this is a story that is so real, action packed, tight and interesting I don’t have to make anything up. But I probably will because the story I prefer to tell is one that will have a commercial interest.
If I am blessed it will be optioned as a film with well known names vying for key roles in it. But this is not my motivation for starting to write it now.
That motiation has come because of my daughter Finola, although as I write this she doesn’t know it yet! I have thought about giving her a background into parts of my life I have never written or spoken about before. That’s when the idea of the book project came up.
Rate & Style
I will try to write around five pages a day but if I complete just two that would be good enough for me. I’m not writing this under pressure of a deadline, or to any particular style.
It’s great to have this freedom because I will write something that I hope others will enjoy as much as I want to enjoy writing it.
I hope to show a stylised version of life through my eyes and how my experiences have made me how I am today.
So far the opening line goes:- “Around 13km north of Kingston lies Lawrence Tavern…” You’ll have to wait for the finished thing to read the rest! How many advanced copies will you be ordering? 😉
