Life without someone loved

10 Aug

It’s not long gone midnight here.

Which means I’m now officially living the first day since the past of my oldest sister to cancer.

Our ten is now nine.
And I’m still not sure how to process this.

I don’t know what’s going to happen with the writing challenge this week.
Or for the rest of the year from this point onwards, in fact.

I’ll cross that bridge when we reach it on Wednesday.

Somewhere an extra star is shining tonight.

Ray Bradbury Challenge, Week 32.

6 Aug

Just finished this weeks story, from a reddit writing prompt.

Wrote fairly easily, considering the personal stuff I’m going through at the moment.
I was determined that nothing would stop me writing this week. It’s important to me and those concerned would understand that I feel this way.

1267 words in just over an hour.
I’m unsure about the ending but I’ll leave it a few days and see how it looks with a re-read then.

Still on track to complete the resolution.
The further into this year I get, the more I don’t want to fail.

Tough Week

4 Aug

Having one because there was some bad personal news in regard to a family member.

I’m having a hard time processing this, it’s a lot to take onboard in a short time so excuse me if I appear a bit weird at the moment.

I’ve had a chance to talk to someone (virtually) to unload and feel a bit better but it’s not the kind of news you get every day. I don’t want to give a lot of details (actually I don’t really want to give any, it’s my business – not yours) so I won’t be saying much in depth.

Bear with me. I’m coping with heavy shit.
I’m not sure if I’ll be doing a Bradbury Challenge story or not this week.
We’ll see what life has in store for me first.
