Time Passes

A year ago today, my grandma passed away. It’s also father person’s birthday today, which means I didn’t like to mention this.

As posted on Protagonize on Saturday 27th November. (click link to read original) Hi.

You can check out delorfinde’s profile here: http://www.protagonize.com/author/delorfinde This interview was conducted in November 2010. 1) I think I’m right in saying you’ve written more than anybody else during the time you’ve been on this…
