The only advice that I have is ‘write’. Really that is all they need to do. Worry about what to do with it once the story is written. You can go back over it later to format the work, edit it and even add things like conversations and descriptions. Write the story you want to write not someone else’s. You may decide to put it away in a drawer and not do anything with it but you will have written your story.
Morning Person? Or Night Person? How do you know?
I am a morning person. If you came to visit early in the morning I would be out walking before I started work. If it was raining I would be at my keyboard, it is the best time for me to think or write. In the evenings I fall asleep if I do anything relaxing. My concentration levels are very low in the evening so don’t tell me anything then because I will have forgotten it by the morning.
Although ostensibly this book is the story of walking in
with it does have some serious messages to give. We thought Ireland , the country and its people were wonderful, this message is clear. It also explores the cultural differences between the French and the English and Irish not only through my own eyes but through those of my French husband. Our relationship changed significantly due to being so intensely in each others company. Rambling is not just as a form of exercise and exploring the countryside but of talking using Free Association. This was a therapeutic technique invented by Freud in order to access unconscious processes for the purpose of therapy. Readers who let their minds wander may find things in their sub conscious that they didn’t know were there. Ireland
