Sorry to have been away for a few weeks. My life has just been on a massive fast-forward since my last post - daughter's wedding, charity book, setting up the Young Writer exhibition. The wedding went really well. Daughter looked great. Don't normally cry at weddings but wept buckets at this one - especially when the four children got up and did their family speech - OMG! There wasn't a dry eye in the hotel! Could not have asked for a better day - the weather was great, everyone had a great time, the setting was amazing! Made for a very long weekend but worth every second!
Remember me mentioning the charity book I was going to produce for a colleague to help raise funds for children's charities (I did mention this didn't I?)- well I got the final draft finished and printed it off, bound it all up, presented it to colleague - and suddenly I have orders for around a dozen more, so my printer is going to be very busy over the weekend! Luckily it only runs to eight pages. Nice that everyone likes the story, though! Even nicer knowing I can raise funds for worthy causes without running a marathon (I wouldn't make it to 26 yards, let alone 26 miles!). Plus the story is just plain fun. It was fun to write and it is fun to read! I might even do something similar another time.
Spent a couple of hours at the local library yesterday afternoon setting up the displays of work by the Young Writers for the exhibition. Chuffed to bits with how it looked once I'd finished it. can't wait to show my members tomorrow at the next session.
As for My Writer - well I have yet to read the final proof but should get it done next week so need to get my marketing cap on and think of the best way to Get It Out There.
Oh yes - and just the other day I won an award at The Day Job....
