Sadness

Sadness

When you feel like a mess

Always crying

Even when someone just says ‘Hi’

You feel like running away

Nothing making you stay

You can’t see the end of the road

You just feel like an ugly toad

Then someone comes along and ask if you’re okay

That’s all the person has to say

Then all your problems disappear

As well as all your fear.

Night Night

Night night

Tonight you take flight

To a place they call heaven

The angels and waitin’

For you to arrive

For you they smile

 

Night night

The ends in sight

Of the life youre living

Believe me people will be grieving

For a world without you by my side

Is a world where I can no longer smile

 

Night night

With you out of my life

My heart seem to suffer

My voice seems to stutter

My eyes fill with tears

As we all say ‘cheers’

 

Night night

I will stop holding tight

Close your eyes and sleep

Please ignore me weep

With a grin and a sigh

I say my final goodbye

Huntley Fitzpatrick Interview (29-8-2016)

A week ago a sent Huntley Fitzpatrick an email asking if she could answer a few questions for me as I love her book as thankfully very quickly she said yes.
1)Why did you start writing?
I honestly can’t remember a time in my

life when I didn’t write. There just always seemed to me so many stories to tell.
2) Have you ever had a problem with writing a book?
Every book presents its

problems. Sometimes it’s a cool challenge, and sometimes it’s a brick wall you just have to break on through.
3) Do you have a special space where you write your stories?
My office is in my bedroom, which is a little bit difficult, since there’s no door and it has French windows that open to our backyard, so there’s always soccer

practice for my son going on, or kids in the pool or someone calling up the

stairs to say they can’t find their shoes. I love that I write in the midst of my life, but it can be a challenge to focus.
4) Do you get inspired by the public, family or your own imagination for

characters and situations in you books?
All of the above. I try not to use,

directly, real people. But of course the situations I’m involved in and part

of, the children I know and knew, the person I was and am all play a part.
5) How do you come up with characters name?
It depends. My second daughter

named the heroine in my first book.I gave her a description and she came up

with the name. Sometimes, I just picture a person and the name comes to me.

I thought “Jase” was a name I’d completely invented and then I started

seeing it everywhere.
6) Do you know anyone like your characters in any of your books?
My son Johnny was the basis for George Garrett in My Life Next Door. My beloved godson Luke is the foundation for Emory, in WHAT I THOUGHT WAS TRUE. Mostly, I try to stay away from real people. Jase was inspired by a few good guys I knew. But once you start writing a character, they pretty much forge their own path.
7) If you could choose between a series of TV shows or a film to adapt your

books into which would it be?
It’s so hard to imagine either happening. My husband thinks a TV show that showed all three books happening at the same time would be perfect-he used to work in TV, so I bow to his greater knowledge in this case.
8) Has it always been you dream to be an author?
Always. Always.
9) Do you record ideas for books via Len and paper, voice recorder, memory

or your phone ?
I do pen and paper. My memory is unreliable-always too many

things going on. So I never go anywhere without a pen and paper. In a pinch,

though, I’ve been known to rely on lipstick and an ATM receipt.
10) Which of your characters do you think is most like yourself ?
I’m sure this is true of every author, but there are pieces of me in every single

character. I guess, if I had to say, I’m a combination of Samantha and Tim.
11) Would you regard the three books you have written so far (hopefully

there will be more) as a series or as three separate books?
I would say three separate, although the first and the third are deeply connected.
I would like to say a massive thank you to Huntley Fitzpatrick for by far being the quickest to reply to my emails and also for some very interesting answers as I am now going to try and find all the connections between her first and last book. I really hope we see some more books by Huntley on the shelves soon and I can’t wait to read them when they are.

life

Life can be an odd thing with people coming in and out of it each effecting you in different ways. I sometimes wonder if what they teach me i stat everyone leaves eventually just ilk someday you will leave someone .

Every time someone comes into your life enjoy it and be happy as you never know this could be the person you spend all of your life talking with and laughing at their rubbish jokes. Sometimes people come into your life simply to leave it and then eventually you will forget them.

I am about to embark on the brilliant GCSEs and in 6 weeks I won’t see many of my friends as they go off to other colleges and 6th forms whilst I stay with the others. I will be saying goodbye to people who have effected my life for around three years and next september more people will come into it. I don’t think they will replace those who have left but they will simply be different you can never replace people like for like and if you can then maybe they weren’t that important in the place.

Recently one of my friends from Australia contacted me and we have reconnected and i haven’t laughed at memories so much in such short time before and I know that he hasn’t been replaced and he won’t replace someone. My life has involved a lot of coming and going and moving and leaving so i have made friends quickly and lost them just as fast. I understand that not everyone is in your life to stay forever and someone who is your best friend or the most important person to you know may not be in 10 years. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t cherish those in you rife at the moment as in the future they may make a reappearance and you’ll want amazing memories to look back at instead of regrets.

Panic attacks 

I had a panic attack today. 

I have been having problems these last two weeks with sleeping as I keep having nightmares. I worry that good isn’t foot enough and am angry with myself if I get anything less than 100% in a test or don’t work hard enough. 

I’ve been putting all this pressure on myself to be perfect when I should have been looking to be happy. I’ve made myself sick and sleep deprived and today I cracked but sadly I cracked at school inform of my English class and again in maths. My class mates now know I’m cracked and that I’m breaking. Everyone is being so nice but I don’t want their pity I just want them to see me as normal. 

Sadly normal and perfection are conceptualised ideas and are not obtainable so for now I’m just having to patch up the cracks. As Deadpool once said “if you can’t fix it with tape your not using enough tape” 

I really hope to hear from you guys about so please comment or email me.
