Stolen love: Writer loses her life..

She had received repeated warnings over a very long time, that she had to leave Manhattan before it would be too late to do so. In the stark bright morning light, she takes a sip from her "Buck Special blend" coffee as she gazes over the headlines: “Writer loses her life's work in a fire.”...

A Veritable Young Enid Blyton

.Writer Sue Blake watched as her life’s work literally went up in the flames, which were gutting her Manhattan apartment.

As she watched the firemen damp down the last few defiant embers, her entire life was contained within the walls of that apartment, her very first award winning essay in junior school, :”This young girl is a veritable young Enid Blyton in the making.” wrote her school Principal, miss. Peggy Sutton on the top right hand corner of her yellowed notebook page.

A Phoenix Named Cozy Bay

That single document was the forerunner of dozens of best selling novels, one of each occupying it’s own pride of place on the custom built mahogany shelves, now reduced to dark gray ashes, faintly glowing against the rays of the rising sun of a new day.

This devastating fire, had been the final seal on what she had known and longed for, for many years, not the fire, but that which she had been putting off for so long, making the move, finally, to her private little get away, the sleepy hamlet Cozy Bay on the west coast.

The title of her new adventure will be A Phoenix Named Cozy Bay...

Is this too predictable, boring even? I’d like to know, your veritable comments as ever, will be greatly appreciated.

May her soul rest in peace!!! Sometimes works are more important than lives, they grow the name into immortality.

It is heart-rending to lose life's work borne out of our burning passion. It will be too late to pick up the pieces - siva

Honestly, I'm not sure there is enough here for me to understand what all you want to convey. But it's a potentially great start.

Is this an intro to your upcoming book or what? It's not clear to me.
If so, I wish you good luck.

1st November 2016 (#) Hi , Thank you for being on my readers list. I have been searching for about 2 years for a write for cash site which works as easily as wikinut and pays like Bubblews did in their heyday! One of our wikinutters, passed this information on to me of a brand new cash writing site which is similar to Bubblews and it pays its writers for original work. I joined and find their pay system very rewarding.
If you could use a few extra dollars like I do, and would like more details please join here:

or here:

Kindest regards,

Andre' (Tranquilpen)
PS: Many wikinut and Bubblews writing community are already there!
