So, it's been 2 years since I last posted to my blog. I fell off the writer bandwagon... With work and "real life" commitments (motherhood being the biggest one), the only way I felt I could juggle everything was to stifle my creativity. I have kept a notebook and written down the occasional story idea, and I keep a journal, but to dedicate any part of my day to creative writing just seemed like a luxury I couldn't afford. Maybe I still can't... yet... but I'm going to try to keep writing.

The first question in the book: "What can happen in a second?"
In one second, a seagull can fly by, night can turn to day, an orchestra can crescendo to a forte. A friend can give a hug, or I can give my son a kiss. I can savour a piece of chocolate, or finish creating a masterpiece.
