Pen Name

It’s difficult to describe the feeling of intense excitement I feel when I think about writing for a living. (But surely I need to be able to describe it if I want to write for a living so here goes.) I get a real proper bubbly feeling in my stomach which spreads up to my face into a smile and makes me light-headed and almost delirious. Seriously, it does!

I am getting closer and closer to revisiting the novel I half-wrote back in 2011. I think about it a lot. And I chose my pen-name today. Kate-Beth Heywood. It’s more memorable than my full name.. and every second authorĀ seems to be called Kate.

So why am I resting on my laurels? Note to self. Get off your arse you lazy cow and just f*cking do it!!!
