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.

I love Europe. I have lived in several countries on the continent and visited pretty much all of the rest. I speak a few of the languages. My wife has an Italian ID card.

U is for Un-

Uninteresting, unbelievable, unfair.

Reading the first draft of the best debut novel ever written by me, I bumped into all three of these ‘un-s’.

A lot of the novel’s narrative was based on personal experiences and real events. … Read More
