If ever you fancied yourself

a writer, remember this –

“You will have only one story. You’ll write your one story many ways. Don’t ever worry about story. You have only one”
                                                                            My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout.

And if you don’t know what that story is, look to your heart –

“Everyone has their love story. Everyone. It may have been a fiasco it may have fizzled out, it may never even have got going, it may have been all in the mind, that doesn’t make it any less real. Sometimes, it makes it more real. Sometimes you see a couple, and they seem bored witless with one another, and you can’t imagine them having anything in common, or why they’re still living together. But it’s not just habit or complacency or convention or anything like that. It’s because once, they had their love story. Every one does. It’s the only story”
                                                                                                 The Only Story by Julian Barnes

  1. Oh I love this! It speaks to me because of course I love a love story but also earlier this week I was fancying writing a book so this is like the Universe talking to me.

    1. I just finished the Julian Barnes book and I could excerpt huge chunks of it that spoke to me. I started to buy it this morning but it is a new book and not in paperback yet. So I treated myself to 2 Elizabeth Strout books and the Jill McCorkle book I love so much. You should take a wing at the Julian Barnes, it’s is short, about 175 pages, but if you love a love story…

      So thinking about writing a book, are you? Do tell!!
