Kay’s Day Today

So, a bittersweet day in O’Connor Towers today, being a whole year since Kay ( my bestie, sister and co-conspirator ) died. A whole year. Some part of me still doesn’t believe it, still can’t quite reconcile the fact that someone with such joie de vivre is no longer here.

She rode a big motorbike and no-one ever realised how tiny she was, because she had this gigantic, massive personality. And a heart of gold. We had plans for when we were old and even odder hags, wheeling each other out dribbling, to whatever the nursing-home equivalent of Wetherspoons will be in the future. I miss her too much for words.

But on the other hand, today was a splendid english summer day, with faint fluffy clouds and the birds singing loudly. I even managed some proof-reading whilst lying supine in the sun. That third novel is getting closer to release by the day now. Readers be warned!

I’ve got gypsy blood. At school, they used to read my ghost stories out to the class and my writing just carried on from there. I live in England, but I dream of moving to Iceland, I think I could do some good writing there. When I was little, I knew that there was something magical about words. I was in awe of the library and the books appeared as infinite as stars, each with a different story or world. I suppose that in some way, these stories of mine are versions of worlds. Except the characters have become quite real to me now; they have their own idiosyncrasies and dispositions and quite frankly, walk around a novel like they own the place. It's like they're letting ME in.

One thought on “Kay’s Day Today”

  1. Sorry to hear about your sister – losing close ones sucks! I’m sure that she’d be very happy to hear of how your writing is going though – especially your competition winning and already having a third book awaiting, so keep your chin up! – J 🙂
