Simply beautiful

As I’m writing a story of love at first sight, I sometimes like to peruse the web for real stories of it.  Sometimes they inspire, sometimes they just warm the heart, others just affirm that I’m on the right track.  I found one that just … this one I felt I ought to share, so here it is.

Proof there is true love at first sight: On their very first date they vowed to marry. 20 years on, their love has survived the most astonishing tests…

As I was searching in my husband’s wallet for some change, I found a small, dog-eared picture of us taken 20 years ago in a photobooth. Ray and I are gazing at each other in the photograph, dizzy with expectation and high on love, joie de vivre written across our fresh, 20-something faces.

I remember that moment as if it were yesterday. We had just agreed to get married and have children; to spend the rest of our lives together, grow old together and, eventually, be buried together.

To record this life-changing moment for posterity, we ran, laughing, into a photobooth in London’s Leicester Square, and smiled widely for the camera.

Getting started

What can I say?  I’m trying to set this up as a blog about the progress of my fiction, but it’s a little slow going.

Current projects:

Now & Forever a four book series following the lives and love at first sight romance of a pair of high school girls.  (more detailed blurb when this gets an official page, probably)

This blog – I need to work out how I mean to organise it and start putting content here.  Mostly involves really wanting to use a computer (not really my cuppa, the electronic little demonic things)
