Courage to take the journey

In November last year I sat down and wrote a novel. It was inspired by the vague but disquieting feeling of not ‘belonging’. It may be a situation you find yourself in, a new home, a town, a group of people – sometimes it can be as simple as feeling like a particular party you’ve ended up at in the early hours of the morning, is just not your scene.

And sometimes that feeling of not belonging is so overwhelming it causes a radical shift in lifestyle and a re-ordering of priorities. Mostly, this feeling of belonging is tied to how authentically you are living your life [or not] according to your own dreams and ‘true’ self.

I don’t know how this feeling of not belonging affects men, but I do know that women can be very brave and, if the feeling of not belonging is strong enough, they will undertake a journey back to their authentic self, to who they are meant to be…and nothing can stop them.

So with these thoughts in mind, I let my imagination follow the journeys of three women: Liliana, Estelle and Jill. Three women at different ages and stages in their lives, they are, nevertheless, bound by a common journey towards their ‘belonging’ place, back to their authentic self. And they have the courage to make that journey. The result of my writing journey through the feeling landscape of what it means to ‘belong’, is my new novel “Belonging Places”.

It will be out on Amazon early March, but in the meantime, take a look at the book trailer.
