Done In a Jiffy

That seems to be some kind of weird time motto I'm secretly using nowadays. Everything seems to be zipping by - time is strange, warping around me, stealing fifty minutes to write a poem and four minutes waiting for a bus. My brain is always scattered, thinking fast, dividing up ideas into three cozy little… Continue reading Done In a Jiffy

Word Crush Monday: Wright

I'm not quite sure where the days are going. It's almost mid-July, and Christmas is racing up on us again. Today I speed-read through two skinny little eBooks, devouring ten-chapter mysteries and guessing correctly on one of them. The other, I had to consciously switch off my  brain. I also solved a code-breaker puzzle which… Continue reading Word Crush Monday: Wright

Word Crush Monday: Pearl-McPhee

Okay, it's Monday, and I know it's supposed to be an Off-the-Hook day, but I spent a lot of time actually doing the knitting and far less time doing the photos.

I might return to my Friday poetry this week, though -… Continue reading Off the Hook, Round 2

Word Crush Monday: Bach

Skipping a day seems unfeasible now. Perhaps I'll… Continue reading Word Crush Monday: Bach

Word Crush Monday: Schumann

Today I'm plotting up real mischief. I was going to tell Twitter, but I think I'll hold off for another six months because what's mischief without suspense? I plotted, and two nights ago in the early hours I wrote the opening lines of a story and didn't touch pen to paper. Didn't touch fingers to keys.… Continue reading Word Crush Monday: Schumann

word crush monday: chanel

today i spent some time training my brain to improve memory. i've also had a very itchy eye, which is grating on me. i just spent ages wondering why my music wasn't playing and found iTunes being stubborn. no matter - there's good noise again. i've been conjuring up poems, and semi-writing them in my… Continue reading word crush monday: chanel
