With fears of becoming obsessed I struggle with a sense of emptiness and meaningless when I’m not writing, but then this is the next best thing – writing about the book! I wake at night wondering what the key character will do next and what it was really like for her to be living at that time. What did she think about the future, its unknowns and insecurities? How did she manage to make her way through all of this? What sustained her and what motivated her? From whom and where did she learn her biggest life’s lessons? How did she cope with her deepest sorrows and what did she do with her gifts, talents and privileges? How did she share her joys?
