I've taken a break from writing during the past couple of months.
I was trying to fix a novel.
But then I began to wonder if the cracks in the story went too deep, and couldn't be effectively re-crafted.
After a while, I started to get some new story ideas.
During snatched backstage moments at the opera, I've been scribbling them down in a black-bound sketchbook.
I might have a go at putting them together, but there's always the fear that things may never come together creatively.
However, at the weekend, I saw this message in town.
And it gave me courage.
