Oh how differently this story could have been…

Very early in my writing process I had outlined Shattered in it’s entirety and probably the half of Fix You and I was facing a dilemma. I had two ways the story could turn. Two ideas that were both very much stuck in my head and that I couldn’t shake off. The outcome of the story depended on this specific scene. I had no idea what to do.

Ahem… Hi there

june-01

This question. I’ve been getting this exact question a lot, A LOT, in the last few weeks. To anyone worried that I had probably died or something, I am very much alive., I haven’t had any accidents, the family is great, I haven’t suffered a dramatic case of heartache, I’m perfectly healthy and contrary to popular belief I’m still here. I’ve been absent. Very absent. I am aware of that, but I swear I have a good  few reasons behind it.

The other question I’ve been getting a lot is… “Are you ever going to finish Fix You?” And to that my lovely readers, the answer is… Continue reading
