A DEBUT NOVELLA
An act of goodwill is capable of many things.
It might make the corners of one’s lips point up ever so slightly. Or introduce a spring to the dullest of steps. Maybe it could bring two people, or more, closer together.
Sometimes it’s found in the most unusual places, or on a rush hour train to Charlton. It could be in a tube station or on your front doorstep.
But when you’re lucky enough to experience an act of goodwill, one thing is for sure: in some way or another it will change everything, even if you don’t quite realise it at the time.
‘We all like to think of luck as something undeserved. Whether it be good or bad. We ride it, try it, wish it. But I often think luck could be described as something as simple as a feeling.’
