I’m thinking about new chapters.
Partly I am thinking about new chapters to be written. I have 2 chapters under my belt so far. My plan is to write a collection of chapters each of which could be a short story on its own. But using the same characters will allow me to later put them together, fill in the gaps and turn them into one longer story.
On another front it is time for new chapters to begin for my family.er
Number one son (Prodigal) is trying to break into the music world on a bigger scale than ever before. His current band New Desert Blues are starting to get radio play time as a new emerging act. In the coming weeks they will be playing a variety of gigs in Europe. Later this week they will be in Bournemouth. Followed by Manchester at the Deaf Institute on 24th & on 27th they will be at Bristol’s Start the Bus, along with Australian Band Cloud Control. Mad dash through the night will next see them playing the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg on 28th.
A day off before they start again, Paris, Brussels and Berlin, again all with Cloud Control . Finishing their stint in Europe in Dortmund where they will share the stage with Birmingham Band Editors. I wish him luck in this new chapter in his life.
Number two son (Statto) has recently moved to a shared house in South London. He has graduated from Uni and is working doing what he loves, working with football statisics. Whilst looking for and applying for his ultimate career. I wish him luck in this new chapter in his life.
Number three son (Pug) has moved to Oxford to start his degree in Philosophy. He will be making new friends, learning a new way of life and laying the foundations for his future. I wish him luck in this new chapter in his life.
Number four son (Skater) is continuing the chapter he began last autumn. He is now in his second year of studying creative media at college.
So our household is once again reduced to 3 plus our cat. My husband’s health is improving. I am no-longer the sole driver in our family. I am managing to spend more time writing.
So all in all we are all starting new chapters.
