When you write a novel, above everything else it takes a lot of time. Or at least it does the way I write. Unfortunately, and I mean that here from a literary point of view, I have a full time job, hobbies and a life outside my iPad (laptop has seen better days so most of my written work now happens on the pad). It just means that that feeling of euphoria when you have finished something, when the task as epic as writing a novel is finally complete, well, that payoff is a long time coming. Of course when it arrives it’s massive. Properly joyous. But it’s the journey; and it’s a journey.
