A Day In The Life – World Diabetes Day

A Day In The Life – World Diabetes Day

As world Diabetes Day draws to a close, I thought I’d try something a little different. This blog post was actually inspired by a Facebook friend of mine who to raise awareness of the condition, posts updates throughout the day to show people what it is like to manage Type 1 Diabetes. I’m aware that I’m not the most consistant when it comes to posting (you only need to look at the sporadic nature of my blog posts to see that), but I’m trying something a little similar.

I know I seem to be harping on about inspiration a lot lately but I guess it’s just something that’s been on my mind. Like I’ve said in my previous post, inspiration is hard and strikes in the rarest of moments. Maybe I feel lucky. I’ve been struck quite a lot lately which has seriously helped with my writing and I guess I just want to advocate that the truth is out there! No, wait that’s aliens… I mean inspiration. Inspiration is out there. Here are a couple of places where I’ve found inspiration from the stories I’m writing now,
