Writing a book …

Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand. -George Orwell


Having experienced the horrible, exhausting struggle of having a baby, I relate, in one respect, to George Orwell’s quote about his experience in writing a book. The hours of pushing and sweating to bring to a new creation to life — be it the human kind or the kind on paper — can be horrific, but well worth every minute of pain.


Life has provided many challenges that have made me stick my neck out even when I didn't want to, Those experiences have made me strong and resilient, and have allowed me to keep moving towards my goals despite any adversity. These are the wonderful qualities of the turtle. Life's challenges have placed me on the thrown as The Turtlequeen.
