Something still star like…

In an effort to cope with the absolute terror/anticipation/crush/hope I feel at releasing another novel, I’m posting a hundred things that make me happy. My world (and my writing) has shifted off balance recently and I want to focus on those things that help me feel something is still shining, something is still star like and brilliant (something that will help me trust the words will come back).
One thing a day or maybe two. I don’t know, I have a sort of love hate thing with rules. Mostly I’ll post on facebook but I’ll post them here in threes so I have a record 🙂 (and 3 is the magic number after all:P)

Anyway this photograph is #1

Sunshine at sea, wind blowing through the flags on one of the boats we lived on (I don’t know which one). Looking at it makes me feel happy, makes me feel free…



“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.” Martha Graham


Seeing the perfect person to play one of your characters when (:P) they make your story into a movie.

My characters are always completely themselves in my head so I don’t often see someone and think YES! YOU! but if This is Not a Love Story was made into a movie I’d want Tom Odell (as he looks here-it’s probably his expression more than anything) to play Julian 🙂

About sukifleet

Suki Fleet currently lives in the heart of England. Her childhood was quite unconventional and she spent some time living on a boat and travelling at sea with her family. Since she was very small she has always dreamed of writing for a living, but though she has written original fiction online for years and encouraged many new writers to keep going and follow their author dreams, it is only recently she got the courage to make her own dream a reality and actually send something off to a publisher. By day she runs her own business selling fabric (her second love) and juggling family commitments, by night she weaves the stories that the characters in her head dictate. These stories often start with pain or longing but always end with love.
