Letter to a Habit

For Day Eight of Writing 101: the letter. Dearest Creativity I have yet to decide if you're my best habit or the worst. You have this awesome habit of hanging around me, and I think you're the reason behind 99% of why I question things. What if is my favourite one, I'm sure you know.… Continue reading Letter to a Habit

The Travelling Writer

For Day 6 of Writing 101. I am not a fussy person about where I write. I have been able to write in a noisy cafe, where there are a couple dozen other people all talking and with the cafe noises - you know, cutlery and coffee machines and what-have-you. I wish I was the person… Continue reading The Travelling Writer

Ensnared By A Quote

Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. I don't really have a wonderful quote-finding story to give you guys. I just kind of wandered over to Goodreads, not really knowing they had a quotes section, and scanned through. (I really should make better use of that… Continue reading Ensnared By A Quote

in a crowded room

in response to Writing 101, Day 4 we're all in a hurry. we have places to be; tracks to follow (not make) and not much time. look around, if you feel like it. play a game - count the iGadgets. hint: you can spy them by the earphones. do you see all the gadgetry here?… Continue reading in a crowded room

As If It Were A Secret

Checking in for Day 3 of Writing 101: Single word prompt. I'm picking secret. I like secrets. Not the deep dark life-threatening kind, or the Pretty Little Liars kind. What I like about secrets is how they're hidden - I know. Hideously obvious. It's their nature though, the way you can make anything like a secret. Or you… Continue reading As If It Were A Secret

Wishful Thinking

Disclaimer: This post, for Writing 101, is fiction. Promise. Lucy wasn't one for wishful thinking, but right now she found herself wishing for quite a few things: I wish I'd had a more substantial breakfast, was the first on the list. It might have fortified her for such a situation as this, though on second thought it… Continue reading Wishful Thinking

Reasons to Write

Okay, I'm setting the timer for fifteen minutes. Then, it's back to NaNoWriMo. I've probably answered this question at least once before, but I think it bears repeating - especially as I've since come up with my latest and possibly most honest answer. I write because it means taking my place in the world. Essentially,… Continue reading Reasons to Write

The 400 Words

I don’t know what to write, really. I feel like I’ve covered a lot of the usual topics by now. I could go on a bit more about exams and all that, but I did that the other day.Free-writing is not my thing. Last time I did this someone commented on how organized my thoughts… Continue reading The 400 Words

Fears and Loathings

I'm not usually one to be afraid. Actually, when I read the challenge I was hard-pressed to think of something I fear.I have a lot of dislikes, but disliking something isn't the same as fearing it - or even being paranoid. I have a long dislike of vegetable peelers, for instance, and there's a reason… Continue reading Fears and Loathings

To Whom It May Concern

Dear Mr FlaubertFirstly, may I say that Madame Bovary is one of my favoured novels. The ending, in particular, is enough to get it a spot on my Top 5 Novels list. (If I had one, which I don't. Not an official one anyway.)However, I have a thread of resentment for you. You see, quite recently I… Continue reading To Whom It May Concern
