An Important Week

I’m not embarrassed to admit a few years ago I was foundering. I really was going through a seemingly never-ending bad patch, where the light at the end of the tunnel was blocked off by bricks. 

It was writing that saved me, first The Single Feather then a return to my first love – journalism, accompanied by study at The Open University. 

It’s hard to believe, but my second degree is nearly finished, just two more modules to do. Impatient to graduate, I’ve decided to study for both at the same time, and this is why I’m writing this post. At the end of this week (on Saturday, to be exact) I begin, what is going to be an intense year. I expect my SM posts to drop considerably, but don’t worry I am ok. I’m also going to try and still submit work to the paper and GFT when I can. If possible, along with this, I will be slowly doing the reading for my NCTJ Diploma, but won’t take any exams until after my degree. 

For someone who at one time didn’t, or couldn’t see a future ahead of me, I’m proud to say I’m dismantling those bricks one by one and as a result, I can see the light.
