Charlotte Coleman.

Ten years ago today, Charlotte Coleman died.

I just wanted to mark that in some way. Eventually I think I'll resurrect the old homepage I built - I still have all the files somewhere, although it'll need a bit of an overhaul. Apart from anything else, I actually want to get a proper domain name and paid hosting, which is going to involve money. And I want to make it something she deserves, which at the moment I don't really have the time for. I remember when I first heard of her death, and it hurt like hell - probably more so than my breakup from my first wife, which to a certain extent I'd almost started to get over by then. In hindsight, my reaction to Charlotte's death was to spiral even further into depression, which wasn't a good thing.

But then, bottom line is, I miss her. I didn't know her particularly well, except as a fan, but we'd met several times and exchanged a few letters, and she was a really important part of my life. I wish I'd made more of an effort to keep in touch with her.

Charlotte Coleman, 3rd April 1968 - 14th November 2001. RIP.
