Back to square one!

With no such things as TV, computer games, and the like, board games — snakes and ladders, ludo etc — were popular when I was young. With some games, a throw of the dice would take you back to square one — again and again and again! Know the feeling?

Things did not work out with Cinnamon Teal. They have a few problems to work out and I need to get my book in print after all the hold-ups this novel has been through. So I will go to the printer who did a good job of the last book I published.

Now back to polishing Designed For Love. But right at this moment I feel — why bother with any of it? I guess I hate to give up on anything — be it a problem to solve or a job to finish!

    There ya go! And what else are ya gonna do with your time–play board games?

    Don’t give up. Designed For Love is a beautiful story. I feel like I’ve met all the characters personally and others should get the chance. (And wait while they meet the grand children) Keep at it Gladys. I’m following your every move…how else can I learn. You’re my inspiration.

  4. Andy O'Hara Says:

    In addition to being the excellent writer you are, you have a drive I admire and wish I could muster myself. Maybe I could get you to ghost my novel for me!

  5. Gladys Hobson Says:

    Thank you, Andy. As generous as ever.
    I would love to ghost your novel but don’t have the language — ya here?
    What a lark!

  6. Diane West Says:

    oh…to follow you two wonderful writers, Andy and Gladys. I have a lot to learn, but I’m trying (very trying, I might hear you say) and you both give me inspiration. I need someone, with very big boots ,to give me a big kick up the backside and get me moving. If I only get half way to writing something as good as you both, I will be truly happy!
