Life really does go backwards at 40

Round 2

I have got through to round 2 and its all down to you, so thank you very much 🙂

For round 2 we were asked to write something that was life changing. so I will apologise in advance for any tears that may be shed, I don’t usually write about sad stuff, I would much rather focus on the happy things in life.

So in advance

The post is up and here is the first few lines,

Bereavement is a very strange thing; some may think it’s life changing and other’s not. For me it was a huge smack in the face and something I don’t think I will ever really come to terms with.

My Mum was your typical Mother and to be honest I wasn’t really close to her until many years later. When I was younger I spent lots of time at the stables or would go to work with my Dad. From quite an early age I figured that my parents were perhaps a bit too tired when they got around to having me and from the age of about 10 I started to become independent and my constant thoughts were of how I couldn’t wait to make my own way and leave home, that’s exactly what I did as soon as I could. As the years went by I would call home, perhaps once a month and would visit infrequently, as I say we weren’t really a close family.

Vote for me please :-)

Hi everyone

As you know a short while ago I took up blogging and I am rather surprised that I have been selected as one of the finalists for The Novelist.   The top prize is a publishing deal…woo hoo, eek, oh my days …haha…help!  😉

Right…. in order to get there I have to go through an X Factor style process subject to a weekly vote…book factor, thank god there is no singing involved as I cannot sing hahaha 🙂

So if you would like to hear more about the randomness of life in general

Then please vote, the book is written in a Sue Townsend style (Adrian Mole) it’s about life, its ups and downs, the funny, sad and daft things that happen along the way
The competition starts,  Friday 16th November and is on Facebook,  iTunes and the web, links below, in the first week 6 will leave so please don’t let me be one of those first to go. You can vote as many tines as you like 😉

Im the one in the hat, Julia Frazzleby…don’t ask that will be explained in the book

If I win then I promise you all a thank you in the book and to be honest the thank you list is masshoosive and is probably going to be longer than the book 😉

PS all names have been changed to protect the innocent, harassed and any possible libel cases 😉

PPS, I have no idea why it’s sponsored by the gay history project either

PPS, Please repost, share or retweet the links and help me on my way
Love Frazz 🙂
