Pinterest – A Novel By A Private English Tutor
For the pair of you that have spent the last week on tenterhooks, wondering how my novel Seeing Unseen will develop on Pinterest, the wait is over. Please click on the link to see the latest instalment: Seeing Unseen on Pinterest.
For those of you out there that aren’t too bothered that I’ve sweated over a steaming pen for the past eighteen months, here’s my thought of the day that I have pondered whilst penning those 80,000 words:
“Bunyan spent a year in prison, Coleridge was a drug addict, Poe was an alcoholic, Marlowe was killed by a man he was trying to stab, Pope took a large sum of money to keep a woman’s name out of a vicious satire and then wrote it so that she could be recognized anyway, Chatterton killed himself, Somerset Maugham was so unhappy in his final thirty years that he longed for death . . . do you still want to be a writer?” (Bennett Cerf)
Food for thought indeed, ponders this private English tutor.
