it’s like having a lover – this novel

Yes it is, and it follows a similar trajectory. Unfortunately so many non-writers cannot keep that commitment. They flirt, tease and even fall in love, but they won’t say those frightening words – I’m yours.
They fall in love and enjoy the heady times when there is discovery, excitement and joy. But like all relationships, the middle is the hardest. There is no obvious path, no clear cut road to a conclusion or even a resolution. And so that fair weather writer, rips through fifty, eighty, one hundred pages, then walks away from a beauty, only because another luscious, luring plot has beckoned from across the keyboard.
But the real writer knows how tough it is in the middle, where the commitment forces hard choices – where friends are put off by the need to be with a love, a passion and the choice.
Of course there will be time to play, chat and party, but writing a book is so much like taking a lover – it’s not all fun and games, it always requires giving of yourself, sometimes till it hurts… others.
