Love to Write - Jo Tempest

Love to Write

I am writing the seventh book in my ‘Bad Girls’ series…..Early Female Writers, and I am loving it, BUT I so empathize with my girls.

There they are trying to write masterpieces amidst having numerous love affairs, having a hoard of babies and travelling around Europe with men who just do not understand!

Here I am in a foreign country, battling with all the differences, regular power cuts, water off for days, organising my move back to England, cleaning out the wood-burner, washing clothes, and Laurel and Hardy…my two lovely cats!!

I love them dearly but in they come demanding food, cuddles, be dried when it rains…I forgot to tell you, it is winter here so days of endless rain….and it goes on and on, the endless demand for my time. I just want to WRİTE!!!!!

It’s a Catch 22 situation: to be wealthy enough to have someone clean and cook for you, you have to have written books that earn you lots of money. I am trying to do that, as it would be wonderful to be able to just sit at my laptop, do my research uninterrupted and produce a masterpiece, while a lovely lady is feeding me and making sure my house is clean.

Oh well, I can dream, but in the meantime I will slave away at both my chores and my laptop and I WİLL finish this book. I have to say it has been one of my favourite to write and it will be out later this year…..Eventually!!
