April = cruellest month

I was caught out by one April Fool prank yesterday. I was driving to my Mum and Dad's house, and I put on Radio 2. I honestly thought that the DJ, Ken Bruce, was having some sort of mental breakdown, or possibly a stroke. During one record I was thinking to myself 'they'll play two or three records back to back, and when we come back they'll say he's had to go'. But no, he just continued to ramble and embarrass himself.... I wouldn't like to say how far I had driven down the M40 before I realised it was someone doing a Ken Bruce impersonation. It turned out to be Rob Bryden. It was really good voice control. matildabj and I saw him perform in 'I'm Sorry I haven't a Clue' and I think he has fantastic voice control. He doesn't do a wide range of impersonations, but the ones he does are very impressive. Anyway, you got me Rob, fair and square.

I have been struggling with low mood for about three weeks now in this transitional time. I am not totally out of the woods yet, but I am getting there. I had some good news a couple of days ago - the Jamaican govt have bought a lot of copies of my book (the one I wrote in 2009) - I mean, quite a lot more than 10,000 copies. This was a piece of good news I needed. I am hoping this encourages the publishers to put more writing work my way.

Continuing to ramble on, I know there are all kinds of social media options out there, but I am going to stick to blogging on livejournal. I am hoping that, although it will never be the case again that most of what I want to read online is coming through this interface, that people will continue to come here and interact with me, and also that my lj friends will continue to use it.

ETA - oh, I should say on the last point that I don't emotionally distinguish livejournal and dreamwidth in my mental map, and I mean either or both of them. I am really happy to read friends in both, of course.
