One long term goal crossed off 😃

Hi everyone, I started writing a book back in 2018 inspired by my family history . Some truth and a lot of my imagination . When I had my stroke August 2021 I cried a lot thinking that I would never be able to complete it . Well I have ! And it’s being proof read now .
I ll let you know when it’s on Amazon​:joy::joy:
Having a goal that’s nothing to do with my arm or leg as helped so much . writing and any Hobby old or new are so important I think in order to switch off from stroke symptoms
Best wishes to you all :kissing_heart:

Thankyou for your replies and best wishes. I’ve sent my manuscript to a publisher now .and off to start my next book now haha . So important to have an interest in something after stroke to take your mind off it . I joined an online writing forum and chatted to people who were all writing a novel . Their encouragement like this forum helped me enormously .
Hope you’re all doing well xx

Hope you’re on the best seller list & the booker prize before the end of next year. (before the end of this year seems more optimistic)

Well done
