Who said writing is easy?

I thought I would do a little blog update about how my writing is coming along. Well, there is only one word really. SLOW.

Whoever said writing is easy, they're lying. It's hard work but I love it and I still hold on to that hope and dream that one day I WILL be able to do it full time and all of the time. Bye bye regular day job and hellooooooo published author, Sam. For now though, it is still aspiring author, Sam and boring day job:-)

Daniella and Luca are still alive (on paper, I mean!) and coming along nicely. Each month I have been sending a chapter off to the lovely Annie Seaton to be edited and polished up. At the moment we are on chapter four (I think?) And whenever I have a little extra cash, I aim to send her two a month. So, all in all, their complex love story should be finished in the next few months!

My critique partner (the lovely Faith Thomas) and I are aiming to enter a little competition for short stories. Mine is based on a couple called Thana (AKA Ana) and Tom. Ana is a Middle Eastern beauty, and a princess in line for the throne. She falls in love with her London born bodyguard, Tom. Their relationship is forbidden and when they are caught, Tom's life is just about spared and he is sent back to London, whilst Ana is exiled to live with distant relatives. I wont tell you the whole story (though there isn't much, it is only 3000!) just incase it does get pub'd :-)

Then, I also have a vampire story in the pipeline and that one I really am excited about!! Just need to find the time to get going on it. Check out my pinterest boards when you have time, I have a few pics of him on there. A nice blend of Cillian Murphy and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Watch this space!

So, ladies and gents, that is where the story (ies) stand at this moment in time.

'Til next time!

Sam :-)


  1. Glad you're plodding along and you're right. Writing is hard :o) I hope one day I can scrap the day job (and night job too). I'm sure we will be able to soon. I hear wonderful things about Annie, glad you're taking steps to make your book the best it can be. Good luck with the competition x

  2. Keep plodding, it will happen for you. Good luck :oD
