Missing Child Portrait 51 by johnpaulthornton

Another ‘Missing Child Portrait’ from :iconjohnpaulthornton:, painted from the picture on a milk carton – a shocking image in itself on the most mundane of ...

I feel like writing a journal, so here one is. Now I just need to work out what to say. Extreme tiredness. Bad back. Hatred of the school run. A little niceness from neighbours. Pancakes for Pancake Day. Maybe I should give up self-hate for Lent. We'll see how that goes. Not that I'm Christian. We've been having spring weather here, but I hardly dare mention that for fear of jinxing it.

I've set up a facebook page for my photography. Come over and like it and share it, pretty please :-) I want to work on getting watermarks on more of my images that are already uploaded, submitting to stock sites. I've opted into the pay-for-download option, so my photos can be downloaded for 100. I feel bad about that in a way, but I'm tired of having things stolen and making nothing for what I do.

In other news - a recent internet-outtage meant that I got to spend a lot of time writing. Three chapters or so of a short story which is becoming a novella. More of my current novel. A poem which I may or may not upload. A fairy story for submission.

Speak to me. Tell me what's going on in your life.

A final question. Has anyone out there reading this been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome? Would you mind sharing (in a note?) what diagnosis has meant for you - i.e., are you better off or worse off with a diagnosis? Thank you :heart:
