I have recently been reading some posts on various blogs, eloquently worded, and clearly poured directly from the soul. Some touching, some inspiring, some just beautiful.
As a person so shallow that I’m almost two-dimensional, (in fact I’ve seen baking trays with more depth,) I would consider it very unlikely that such heart-felt outpourings into blog world would ever emanate from my keyboard. However, I have always considered myself to be a bit nifty at putting a coherent sentence together, as and when required, to suit any need. Seems I was wrong.
My mother’s best friend, whom I have known nearly all my life, has been battling cancer for about five years now. Yesterday my mum told me that there was no more treatment that could help her, only palliative care. And words failed me.
I should send a card, but I don’t know what to write. I should go round and take flowers, but I don’t know what to say. How do you say the right thing when there are no words?

Hello fellow Mensans!
I am guessing that the professional Writers SIG has plopped onto your doormats, and you’ve tuned in to see what that slightly mad, ‘professional reject’ is all about. Well, welcome to you, and thank you for paying me a visit. All visitors are extremely welcome, as indeed are all comments, good or bad…preferably good.
If you cast your eyes to the bar at the top you will find a place just for you, and if you have a cheeky little peep at that page you will find all the resources and snippets of info that I’ve gleaned from my publishing journey, which I have put on here to save space in the SIG.
(If you are not a member of the Professional Writers group, you are still welcome to check out the info on this page…it’s there for anyone really.)
You can choose to subscribe (it’s free) which will send you an email each time I update this site, or not, it’s up to you. If you want information that is not already on here send me a comment and I’ll try to find it for you, and of course if you wish to share your own experiences I would love to hear from you.
Love and hugs all round xxx
