Thank You

Thank You

I now have three readers who are giving me opinion and feedback. A British writer, an American Naturist and a British Naturist. Their contributions are invaluable on so many levels. I am still receiving input from a young British Naturist whose story is also a great source of literary and personal inspiration.

The more the merrier, so if you would like to get involved, please drop me a line.

Author With A Word Problem

I have one of those words that is just out of reach of my mind and it's driving me nuts! The word describes a residential building that looks commercial/industrial. Specifically, I am trying to find a word to describe a 1970's prefab Children's Home. Any help will be gratefully received.

I would rather have an enemy I understood than a friend I do not.

Editing of the first six chapters of both books is still underway and quite therapeutic. I don't know whether to look for an agent/publisher now or finish them both with a view to an ebook publication. Opinions welcome :-}

It's Good To Be Alive Today!

Sometimes the greatest fear is revealing the truth and sometimes the truth accepted with compassion is the greatest feeling possible.

Personal experience of the day but it may well end up in the book. I hope you all have a day as cathartic as mine has been. All the best to 'E' and the rest of Humanity. JCP

"Is There Anybody Out There?"

Writer looking for constructive criticism, questions and feedback. In the words of Pink Floyd “Is there anybody out there?”

Excerpt From Draft Script

Whooping and laughing they run down the stairs, through the lobby, through the kitchen, past a startled Elizabeth and out to the pool. Once through the gate they jump straight in, Charley shouting.

"Skinny dipping rocks!"

“One day” thinks Elizabeth. “Less than one day and Joseph's got him running round the house in the nude! I thought at least a week. Is that boys or is it Naturism? Boys I think.” Smiling she takes another sip from her Oolong scented tea. “Charley's not wandering around naked all the time and neither is Joseph, but skinny dipping, why not?”

Thank You

I had some inspiring help over the weekend from wonderfully articulate and open member of the Young Naturist movement. Their contribution has already influenced the character development and will probably continue to do so. Your stories will hopefully make these books more relevant, more familiar and more entertaining. Big thank you to 'M', the contributor, someone really worth knowing :-}
