In the Newspaper

It's been an odd week filled with fun (meeting up with girlfriends over dinner and drinking, laughing, gossiping and drinking far too much champagne), sadness (saying goodbye to colleagues and other disappointments), hope (applying for job interviews, the sunshine reappearing) and meeting new people (giving out my Red Dust Road copies for World Book Night). I was also included in the Jersey Evening Post (the Jersey newspaper for the 95,000 locals) about my involvement in World Book Night.

So, a mixed week, but every experience, however uncomfortable at the time, is surely either a learning curve, or fodder for future writing... Yes?

I think it's probably both, learning curve first and later when it's all settled down, definitely fodder. I've had one of those weeks too.

Here's to the coming week and hopefully more things to smile about than not.

Thanks, Sue, I think you could be right.

I hope you have a much better week this week, too. x

Jane Lovering said...

That's how you can tell a writer - when her life is disintegrating around her she can be heard muttering 'it'll all go in a book, one day'...
Hope things pick up from here on in!

Deborah Carr said...

Thanks Jane, I'm sure it'll all be fine soon. *makes notes about present emotions to use in future books*

I do agree with Jane, but it's not always such a great comfort at the time. I hope the circle turns in your favour again very soon, Debs. X

A mixed week, indeed, Debs - great to have a bit in the paper!

Always try to remember that some days are golden, some are leaden. Some weeks seems to learn the wrong way. Hope some of your unresolved issues get sorted soon Debs. Clear the deck for happier times. In the meantime, always do the things, like the Book Night, that are important to you.

Deborah Carr (Debs) said...

Faye - thank you, that's sound advice. I'm sure it'll all work out very soon.x

Hope the sadness is soon nothing but a memory and that good times are ahead. World Book Night is such a wonderful thing to be involved in and how exciting to be in the paper :-) x

Mama J said...

That must have been great to see yourself mentioned in the newspaper. Sounds like you've had some good days and the sun definitely helps.

Good luck with the interviews x

Deborah Carr said...

Teresa - thank you, I'm sure everything will soon turn around.x

Mama J - it was a nice surprise and the better weather is certainly welcome.x
