Some of you may have noticed that I have been strangely quiet over the past few weeks, this is very unlike me who usually has something to say. Unfortunately my Grandad passed away a couple of weeks ago and I have been feeling less than social to say the least. Now however I have decided that it is time to move on and channel my grief into a more productive avenue. My writing has fallen to the wayside while I allowed myself to wallow but now it is time to pick myself up and carry on. I have just reached a chapter of my new novel which should be fun to write and also give me a chance to vent some of my pent up emotions that I have been struggling with for the past few weeks. Writing is once again proving to be an effective outlet for the turmoil inside of me, further distilling in me the sense that I have found my calling.
