Going back to my inability to actually put something into the post box. (The Wicked Witch) This time I actually managed to do it. I wrote a poem as a thank you to my best friend. She reads all of my novel extracts and she tells me if things don’t work. She listens to my problems. If she didn’t live so far away she’d probably tell my if I looked like crap too!
Spooky is my SATC type of girlfriend.
What I mean by that is I connect with Spooky, and I always have. She knows me just as well as I know yourself. I tell her anything, and everything, and it doesn’t matter if I don’t speak to her for a week a month or a year (or even 7 years in our case). All it takes is for one email, or a text message, or a telephone call and it’s as though I spoken to her just last night.
When I wrote Spooky I just thought about want I wanted to say to her, bought a birthday card with a simple “Happy Birthday” and wrote the poem in the card.
