A long overdue rest….

My dear readers, 

Apart from the odd breaks every now and again due to time constraints and work commitments (and one moving period) I’ve not had a real holiday for over a year!

I know you’ll miss the mid weeks teaser and the following chapters but seeing that our happy couple is in a happy place right now I thought it a good place to break for a much needed rest.

hol

I shall see you when I get back, and hopefully by tomorrow let you know how long I’ll be. I will not abandon our story, so never fear, I will be back!

Love you all for your wonderful support and inspiring love for our favourite (literary) couple!

Happy day,

Monique xx

😉

Enjoy your holiday!!! You certainly deserve it!!! Once you publish this story, you will be able to take a nice looong holiday 😉

    I know this is very deserved as your writing indicates the great care and time placed in it, however, I would be a complete liar if I didn’t say I am also selfishly sad. I only recently started reading this blog and have since completed it twice. I am now trying to hold off for a new piece of the puzzle each week. I have explained it as waiting for a series each week like Spartacus or Boardwalk Empire. You just want to know what will happen next week to continue the lives of some great characters and storyline. Have a great holiday and I will be awaiting more of the tale upon your return.

      Ah Tracie, I’m flattered. Thank you for your kind words. Just like you I also enjoy seeing where the story has gone… I write off the top of my head. I know where I want to end and I do have certain scenes that I know I want to include but generally I wing it. Then I still need to tackle the rewrite… I’ve only managed chapter 1 and I’d like to do at least the first 20! 😉 Have you also read all the one shot stories?

Just curious….. do you already have a story outline or in your mind if how the story will go or end? 'Cause I mean it woman, you are TA-LEN-TED! I couldn't even squeeze more intensity to that.
    LOVE LOVE LOVE, Have fun 🙂

      LOL! Love the comment.Thank you very much. Yes I know where I want to end and there are some scenes that I want to include but mostly I write off he top of my head. Sometimes I start a chapter with a certain direction in mind and then it turns out to be an entirely different thing at the end 😉 For me it’s a very organic process.

    Hi Monique, Yes friend you do need to take a break!!!! I cannot imagine that a break would refresh you to the point that you come back writing even juicier stuff about our own…C & A!!!! That’s because you are at your best now & I thank you for that!!!!
    But I know everyone needs a break and my gosh, I’m happy you’re taking one!!!!! You’ll be dearly missed, but I just know when you’re back, you’ll make it worth the wait!!!! Refresh you brain cells and come back with a clear mind and rested,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
