Writing this novel has given me a special freedom from the normal things we do on a day to day basis. Apart from the obvious tedium of typing, it is relaxing to allow my thoughts and ideas to roam about, doing whatever they like, not bound by the rigid walls of the business world. There are times at night after writing, I dream the scenes and the live the adventure. I have enjoyed the journey of writing the original draft and constantly learning as I went through the editing and rewriting process. The most rewarding aspect of the whole process is to be able to improve the story and the give the characters their own personality.
