Billy Westall

I planned this story for my grandson Adam, who is eleven years of age, to read. As the story has developed I am not sure it will work for someone of his age. Indeed I am not sure which age from zero to one hindred years it will work !

I have been writing each day but I have not been composing anywhere near the number of words needed to achive my 2021 target of 2,740 a day.

Monday 16th November 2020 - 390 words
Tuesday 17th November 2020 - 70 words
Wednesday 18th November 2020 - 328 words
Thursday 19th November 2020 - 491 words
Friday 20th November 2020 – 597 words 
Saturday 21st November 2020 – 1,291 words 
Sunday 22nd November 2020 – 775 words 
Monday 23rd November 2020 – 1,554 words 
Tuesday 24th November 2020 – 1,507 words

There is a reason for my low output. I am building emotion within my reader and so am having to write my own emotions into the story. This is not the genre of writing I originally intended.

That's Adam on the right by the way.

My 4am moment today came today at 5am. The next chapter in the book burst into my head. 

Today I am going to be a busy boy today as I empty my head into the story.

There is, of course, music in the story. It would not be me if that was the case but the music is incidental. This is one of the pieces of music.

I am a bit emotional right now as I listen to the music. I am wondering if the title of the book should be changed to Billy Westall A Vision Of Utopia.
