Writing my first novel, a quote.

'Those were the days- the times when life went so quickly it couldn't be captured, where each breath and each experience was so exciting and so new. The days when every aspect was felt so deeply, nerves tingled, hearts fluttered, fights and kisses intermingled but most of all the love she felt for him could not have been denied' (p2) - copyright Eleanor Segall, 2012

In the past few days, various people have told me that I need to and should be writing something. I have always loved writing and so I have commenced a story about a failing marriage and the wifes subsequent depression, with her battle for health becoming a defining part of the book.

I have never really written an actual book before so I suppose this will be an experiment as to whether people will like my writing. Above is a quote from the start of the book, which I have begun writing.

Please tell me what you think?
