Suzy of Identity Crisis has tagged me to write a meme. I love her and her blog dearly. I have no idea what I'm doing, but (deep breath) here I go.

1. I rarely write anything out on paper, ever. So I have several files of notes, numbers, and messages saved on my computer. My daughters (especially the toungest) call me a geek.

2. This is one of several writing projects. The others include a fictional book and top secret memoirs. I love this one the most as it is the most inspired.

3. I don't listen to music when I write. I love music, but find it distracting. Distraction is not something I need as I have already been led from my seat three times while attempting this post..four...five.

4. The best compliment I ever got was from my husband when he said he liked my writing style. He reads things like Raphael Sabatini, Robert Jordan, and C.S. Lewis. Am I comparing myself to them? Hell no, but he found my writing worthy which was very nice. I myself like to read books where the words seem to be of candy floss. Yes I am a Harry Potter fan.

5. I was inspired to keep this blog soon after Connor's diagnosis. I was feeling awful and was searching "autism" on Google. One link stood out amongst the others, one that was surprising full of humour, despite the title, The Misery of Autism.

I now tag Self Employed Mum that has just embarked on a brave journey.

Funny where the best compliments can come from, isn't it? It means SO much to me when my husband says he likes something I've done, said, cooked, or written!

Why thank you, great pictures at the zoo, love Connor on the elephant. x

Can't imagine what those distractions might be.....
but you do a hell of job with your writing even with them.

Now that's a compliment I would enjoy too. Sadly, mine is not a great reader.
Best wishes

I read your blog - and Maddie's -regularly and admire so much what a great job you both do what with the responsibility of the boys and such. Keep up the writing with the blog as I'm sure it will come in handy to remember things that happened for future use -either in a fiction book or in your "memoirs" too!
