Have you heard the million words theory?
I feel a bit like I exist in a strange little bubble just now. I was doing well, plodding along nicely last year, doing exciting things and feeling happy.There was a dark blot looming on the calendar at the end of the year which covered a few months, but it was ok. The event horizon was far away in the future.
For most of last year I did a monthly round up of things that had happened. I won’t be doing that for 2015, but I do plan to summarise my progress every now and then. Here’s what I managed to do last year.
This year I rediscovered something I thought I had lost forever – the joy of acting.
September was a lovely month, with loads of sunshine and happy distractions.
I never wanted this blog to be something that I only update when I’m quiet, but that’s exactly what I’ve done this summer.
June turned out to be a really busy month, mostly taken up by the Edinburgh International Film Festival but also a fair amount of freelance work.
May. A month with bouts of sunshine, of eating (mostly) healthy food, of seeing lots of friends, of undergoing a minor crisis of confidence, and of ultimately hoping that this believing in my own writing lark will pay off one day.
For the first year of bereavement, I’ve found that you expect certain things.
