Thwarted ambition?

“There. That’s all done.” I leaned back and eased the ache out of my back.


My third “Cause for Concern’ novel was finished at last. This was the one that was going to shoot me to the top of bestsellers lists around the world, cement my name in literary history and make me the fortune my talents so richly deserved…"


I woke with a stiff neck. Where I had laid my head I now sported an imprint of my laptop keyboard on my left cheek.


The blank page on the screen confirmed me as a hopeless dreamer yet again.

The End
