Damien just contacted me to say that he had posted my Guest Blog entry on his blog, Postcards From the Funny Farm!! Take a look and don't forget to leave a comment! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
How do you get inspired? What sort of things make you want to sit down and create something, or write?
For me, inspiration comes from family history, news stories, watching creation, and history in general.
Ok, speaking of news stories! There's one that I've been following that is finally coming to a peak today. Brenda Martin is a Canadian woman being held in a Mexican prison for apparently helping a crook with his dealings. She worked for Alyn Waage as his chef for 10 or 11 months and is being accused of helping to swindle investors out of millions of dollars. She claims to be innocent and has been imprisoned for two years unjustly.
Brenda's judgment has been promised to come today. There is no actual guarantee that it will, the judge has told Brenda personally that he hopes to deliver a verdict this afternoon. He isn't actually obligated to give one until the end of May though.
For some reason I'm excited to see the result of this trial. Brenda seems genuine to me and it's crazy how she's been held in prison for over two years now...with no proof that she even committed the crime.
I'll be posting the outcome of this afternoon's trial as soon as I find out.
