Thank you and goodbye

In which the author makes farewells and shows gratitude.


To all the people who have visited this page, liked a post, or commented, I would like to say a huge thank you.  It was a very big step for me to post this story, the culmination of four years of writing and editing.  I wanted it to be ‘out there’, and now it is, it’s all done, and I am very proud of it.

It feels like a long time ago that I had a dream about a young lad in a changing room whose story I needed to finish.  I thought it would be a quick few words and I’d know how it ended, but then just as I thought I’d got there, it would become obvious that the end was not in sight, and there was more to write.  And of course characters who were only meant to be on the periphery kept attracting my attention, and before I knew it I’d written not one story but five, and really it hasn’t finished, because life never finishes, but sometimes you have to make an ending of sorts.  So that is what I’ve done.

Goodbye Matt, Dec, Laura, Cal and Julia.  Goodbye to you all, too, fellow WordPressers, and thanks for reading, however much you read and whatever you thought about it.

There won’t be any more posts on Shouldn’t Be Alone, but if you have anything at all you’d like to say, please post a comment and I’ll get back to you, I promise.

By the way, if you’re the person from Hong Kong who keeps looking at chapter 12 – Against the wind – I’d really love to know why! Get in touch and satisfy my curiosity!
