I must share with you something that is SO Australian, it hurts. And by hurts, I mean it's the best thing ever. First, watch this:
It also gave me something to write about this morning. There isn't much really to report. I've started reading the next book for Nights at the Round Table (The Day of the Triffids), and I'm enjoying it very much so far. It makes a good change from Battlefield Earth. Granted, most things would make a welcome change from that!
Today is the first day writing The Third Prince full time. So... yay?
Also, it's Bell Let's Talk Day today. You can read more about it here. It's a day designed to help end the stigma of mental health issues, and help those who need it with access and research. It's a good cause.
I was depressed for much of my childhood and more of my adulthood that I like to admit, and that depression manifested in self-harm and suicidal ideation. I, thankfully, made it out (mostly. There are relapses). A lot of people don't. A lot of people don't have the support that I had. It's hard enough dealing with the illness without having to deal with all the baggage surrounding it.
Please, if you're in a rough place, talk to someone. Here is a good place to start.
You can pull through this night. Dawn will come. I promise.
Now I'm going to watch that interview again to cheer myself up.
