My name is D. Leigh and I am a serial un-finisher.
My ambition, high learning curve and goals are usually subverted by my inability to concentrate and care once a level of proficiency has been reached and the next thing to learn has cropped up. In other words – ooo, shiny!!!
This has lead to good things in some aspects. I have tried everything. I have worked at canning vegetables and making my own jams to fixing engines and writing programs.
The frustration comes as an (sort of) adult. I look back on the novels that I’ve finished the first draft of but never saw through till publication, the toys half sewn, the world half done.
A quarter of my life is over and for the rest of it I think I would like to finish most of the things I start and this is a way of making myself accountable even if only to the blank screen in front of me.
So, Hello World.
