Well, it’s been a tough week for aliisaacstoryteller! On Monday I was so hopeful…the end was in sight, and I really believed that by the end of the week, I would be writing the last word of ‘Conor Kelly and The Fenian King’. Alas, it was not to be.
I have written and re-written, organised and re-organised the various scenes which comprise the final chapters, but I’m still no nearer that final full stop. Today, I am taking a break…I have to; I’ve been so focused on the writing, I could barely put a school lunch together for my boys, the cupboards were so bare!
It’s a wild and windy day here in Cavan. Going out into the storm to hunt for food for my family is a brave and desperate act. But I’ll do it, and maybe out there, somewhere along the way, I’ll find my inspiration, too. If the Cloak of Concealment doesn’t claim me, that is…
The weekends revolve around fulfilling Carys’s needs, and my boy’s various sporting activities; there’s not much time for writing. But perhaps next week will see that final word hitting the last page.
As Captain Picard of the starship USS Enterprise famously said, “Make it so.”
