Hi there and thanks for stopping by.
My name is Stuart Lennon and I am a writer.
If that sounds like an affirmation, there is hope for me yet. It is one.
Up until Wednesday the 18th of February 2015, I was somebody who “wanted to be a writer”.
At around nine o’clock in the morning, I became somebody writing a novel.
There is something righteous about wanting to write a novel. It makes me feel worthy. It seems almost noble to want to write a novel.
Actually doing something about it. That is very discomforting. Suddenly, there is nothing to stop you. After all, at the time of writing at least, there is no government department issuing permits.
You just get on with it. Don’t you?
I will record my experiences as I set out to go from the blank page to the published book. I may pick up a prospective reader or two along the way. I may help a writer taking the same road – or perhaps I will just make someone laugh!
Please feel free to add any comments, or questions. I will try to answer them as best I can.
If you would like to be updated on milestones, please sign up – and I’ll keep you informed.
