Signs…

Does anyone else believe in signs that the universe is telling you, you need to do something. I think this goes a bit along the lines of people come in and out your life for a reason and things happen for a reason….

When I was coming to the end of my last insurance module and I was thinking that I want to write again, the book man at work delivered a creative writing book! Though I looked at it and it was for kids, the creative writing group had also come up that I was attending.o

So fast forwarding a bit I recently learned that the care taker at Alex and Melanie’s school used to be a police officer, today I also learned that someone I know through scouting is also a police officer. So hang on a minute I could ask them for help on / in my story..?

Then I was talking to a girl about blogging when I was doing the chocolate research (which I’m still doing)

Today I went to an event at Mansfield library and heard three female authors talk about their books as in part of the “Killer Women” event. I am prudently a bit like hang on there are signs that I should continue with writing because maybe it was meant to be!?

Sitting there listening to these amazing women today, one of them Mel talked about children and the phycology around their behavior and I am sat thinking I wish I could learn about that. Erin Kelly talked about going along to rape cases to research for her latest book “he said she said” and I kinda wish I could research stuff but I generally have no idea where to start. Do I pluck up the courage to ask the two police officers I accidentally know, I don’t know how I can research the MI5 angle but still.

I also have another batch of authors I am interested in pursuing which doesn’t help my list of books I want to read.

There just seems to suddenly be all these signs, and though I am feeling regret (maybe not the right word) that I wish I could of studied child behavior or be a research assistant on a big study. There seems to be signs in my life that I should continue writing and though I didn’t get approached yesterday for this pitch thing, it’s only the beginning and maybe this is all worth something!?
