Monday was one of the hardest days of my life so far as I said farewell to my grandma, the funeral went off well and the service was lovely. After a day of reflection it is time for me now to press on and concentrate on the future. I stayed at my grans house the night before the funeral and it hit me then that she was really gone, it is the little things, an empty chair, no cup with a tea bag in sat next to the kettle. I am saddened she will never get to read my writing but then again the last few years she would not have been able to anyway plus when she did read it was always Mills Boon romances, not sure what she would have thought of the genres in which I write but she would have been proud nevertheless.
So today after I finish writing this I will head off to the day job but tonight I will focus and spend a couple of hours working on the projects I have going, getting ready for publication in a few months. I also made a step forward in terms of self belief and submitted a flash fiction to a quarterly competition that has a small cash prize. While I really do not expect to actually win it has been a big step forward to me to actually hit the submit button and put more faith in my abilities.
So just a short post today mainly as I seem to have misplaced half my belongings at the minute as I also got it into my head to begin spring cleaning the house so fingers crossed I can find my work clothes lol
