Round up of the Week

Round up of the Week

 

World

Thousands of people in Hong Kong marched through the streets in protest at the jailing of three pro-democracy activists last week. The men were initially given non-custodial sentences for their involvement in mass protests in 2014. The court of appeal gave the activists jail terms of between six and eight months on Thursday. Their supporters believe the process was politically motivated. On Sunday, protesters marched to the Court of Final Appeal, where the three men are expected to take their case.

The Paddington to Penzance, Great Western Railway train partially left the track as it departed the station, passengers had to be evacuated but due to the low speed, no injuries were reported.

My World

I’ve had another rollercoaster ride of emotions this week –  unfortunately, I can’t go into specifics here but suffice it to say I triumphed over an extremely stressful situation and have been able to walk away with my head held high. I have also been able to see this as an opportunity to one day use the characterisation and emotions of what happened in a story, I wouldn’t write the actual story as people would probably think it is too far-fetched. lol

My Word

Due to personal circumstances I haven’t been able to write but my editor has sent me back the final proof of “Is This Love?’ and I am working through this now. I have also sent out my second newsletter.
