THE GRAND PRIZE

A story (and stories) to bring hope to the human soul ??

A new “work/book” Craig is currently writing, as the book “writes itself”…

I don’t know how the story will end, but I do know how it all began… *

“The characters seem to represent the virtues and the resilience of the ‘little’ people, a story (or stories) to which we can all relate. In essence it’s about hope and faith: a tale (and tales) of the unquenchable spirit of tenacity in battling on, no matter what are our circumstances. And then eventually finding a way, a pathway to overcome personal adversity … and to ultimately succeed in glorious triumph.”

“A story (and stories) to bring hope to the human soul.”

“When (and where) love endures, hope inevitably follows”

– the writer

“When (and where) love endures, hope inevitably follows” 

– the writer

“A story (and stories) to bring hope to the human soul.”

A rewarding tale of faith, hope and especially love that is currently being written, but thought I’d put up extracts as I write… anyway.

So ENJOY…

as I attempt to write the book…

“Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all. Then one day standing on the summit of life, breathing in the pure sweet oxygen of achievement, totally satisfied in running the greatest race, the race of life one that ANYONE can run and win.”

The Writing Life

craig-funny

As “the nurse” (who loves reading so much, that I’m amazed the book pages don’t catch fire) says to me (often): “You’re not like other writers (‘real ones’, ‘normal’, intellectual, “arty-farty-airy fairey types”); you’re just driven, passionate, obsessive, impatient and impulsive (totally)… and only write with a purpose…to try to make a small bit of difference in the world.”
