When going through adversity I am not thinking Material unless it's wholly internal and personal (emotional) which is completely Fair Use. Everyone goes through difficult times and over the past few weeks I've been having my share. The support of friends and my daughter has been stupendous and now, suddenly, it's all turning around. The weight of worry is lightening by the day. Topped yesterday by a meeting with the agent I pitched to at the London Book Fair Litfactor.
I have been around long enough to know it might not come to anything in the end but her ideas and thoughts on my writing and on my future career as an author, and for one book in particular, are amazing. Meantime a new press and publicity person is starting soon at my publishing company who isn't only going to bring fresh enthusiasm and ideas but all of her corporate marketing skills. The time I have been spending on that will be turned to writing. Hurrah & result all round. So it's back to a 1,000 words a day for me. Preferably before noon.
