Guess Who's Back

Well hello there internet.  I'm sorry I've been away for so long.  I've had quite a hectic few months, but that's no excuse.  I shouldn't have neglected you.  You were always there for me when I needed you, and when I didn't need you I tossed you away like yesterday's jam.

But if you'll let me explain myself.  Firstly, I got a new job.  I have a 4 week rota, which means that each week I work a different shift pattern.  It does take me a while to get into some sort of routine especially when the routine is ... erm ... routine.  But my routine is all over the place.  I'm sure I will get used to it, eventually.

Secondly, I got a new boyfriend.  We won't spend too much time on this subject as he dumped me after 4 months.  Girls, do you always go after 'bad boys' and then get upset because they treat you badly?  Yep, me too.  So this time I went for a 'nice guy' in the hope that I would be treated better.  How wrong I was.  Just because someone is nice to everyone else, doesn't mean they'll be nice to you.

Thirdly, I had a literary festival to organise.  This was the first Lowestoft Library Literary Festival, and I was chairman of the committee so for about 3 months I was eating, sleeping, breathing festival stuff.  It took place on Saturday 28th September and went down really well.  We had 8 authors (including myself) who read from their work and signed their books.

Terry Tarbox, Rebeccah Giltrow, Jayne-Marie Barker, Suzan Collins, Patricia van Stratum, Ruth Dugdall, Mayor June Ford, Nicola Upson, Ian Robb

Fourthly, I went on holiday.  Admittedly it was only for a week, but it takes some planning and recovering.  But we won't dwell on this as I went with the boyfriend who doesn't want me anymore.

Fifthly, I procrastinate.  I have nothing more to say on that matter!!

Oh, and I forgot - I had an art exhibition to get ready for too!  I haven't been this busy in a long time.

But it's coming towards the end of the year, and even though I'm not one to make resolutions, I am going to sort myself out and focus on my writing.  And I set up this blog to track my journey through the world of writing, so here I revive my blog and everything that goes along with it.  I hope to see you along the way.
