    Oh BD, so tough, so sorry. Is truth ever self indulgent? It may be deeply personal, raw and uncomfortable. Being there for the people you love is a wonderful thing, but there are always other demands. including your own wellbeing - don't ignore ...

      Caducean Whisks The parents? The teacher? The range? FFS. She's going to have to live with that for the rest of her life. And the teacher, sadly, hasn't had so long.

    I've been told you know about all things murder. A victim that gets killed buy a bullet would they get the weapon profile or the finger prints back first? Also can you get fingers prints or DNA from skin or does it have to be clothes?

    BD, you're not the first to use this place to pour out your woes, and you won't be the last. The love and support you get here is why, as far as I'm concerned, this is the finest place on the internet.

    Guys this - your replies - are so good. I can't say how much I appreciate it, particularly since none of you know me in the conventional, offline way, and that makes it all the more touching. I had a good chat to her tonight. Most of what I said, ...

    I've just finished my first MS, I've never done anything like that before but I enjoyed writing it so much that I'm going to start on my second. Creating a story and getting it down on paper was one of the most rewarding things that I have done. If ...

    Ah Hell. Who can say? If there is such a thing as immortality then Kirsty has it. I know of many who remember her, all of them think highly of her and many that will keep her memory alive. I don't think I have ever heard a negative word. If it ...

    I wonder if that kid grew into the young man my daughter once met. One of Kirsty's better known songs is a bitter-sweet piece called 'Soho Square', and there is now a bench in Soho Square bearing a plaque in memoriam to her. Every year on her ...

    I once walked into a chip shop that had framed pictures of Elvis behind the counter. The Proprietor was wareing an apron and sporting an impressive DA hair cut. Can you gess what record was playing on the radio ?

    Yeah, that's her. The kid got away with a couple of broken ribs and probably a lifetime of guilt. She was great and a hero too. There is a Mexican supermarket magnate that could die of cancer and make me vaguely happy.

    You think good books are written in order to win huge advances and one-a-year prizes? Maybe so. I think not. I think the desire to excel in competition, whether for prizes or for money, is likely to produce a mediocre and predictable novel on a ...

    I remember hearing of her death. I heard that she saw the danger and shielded one of her kids from the boat and died for it. What-ever her music, she was an instinctive hero. My favorite lines of her work remind me of my first wife, Bex and ...
