WRITING - NOT A HOBBY, A WAY OF LIFE.

WRITING - NOT A HOBBY, A WAY OF LIFE

 

Hi, my name is Louise, and I have a love of reading, and a love of writing.



Louise E. Rule

I have always had a love of reading and a love of writing, and I have always kept a journal and a diary. I have a need to write down what I need to do, and what I have done throughout the week. It is because of this, and the traumatic events, that I was able to recall all the events that appear in my first book entitled FUTURE CONFRONTED.
The book is about our youngest son Robert Charles Rule, and how he and we coped with the terrifying news that he was suffering from an inoperable brain tumour. He was only twenty, and died just 49 days after being diagnosed.


Robert C. Rule

My reasons for writing Rob's story are many. The main reason is because Rob had shown great fortitude when he first found out that he had a brain tumour and demonstrated great resoluteness and dignity when he found out that he was going to die.
Rob was cremated. We scattered his ashes on Butser Hill on the South Downs in Hampshire, a beautiful and green open space with 360 degree uninterrupted views. It is an exhilarating and magical place to be, and it matches Rob's ideals perfectly.

I needed to tell Rob's story, our story, in the hope that it may encourage those who have suffered the same as our family that it is possible to survive, to carry on; to overcome.
