Take Six

I've lost count of how many times I was working on rebooting this blog. I was going to start again on Saturday and even drafted the first paragraph, but then I was also laid up with flu all week and I don't think writing was top priority. Not even third priority, really. Have you ever… Continue reading Take Six

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

Over Coffee (29)

If we were having coffee, I'd be telling you about the new story I managed to write this week. I haven't the foggiest idea of how to describe it, but I've secretly sent it off to make its way in the world. Oops. Now I've told you it's less of a secret.

I'm the sort of person who has honed my morning routine to a fine art, every waking-half-hour precisely the same as yesterday. I will literally delete… Continue reading NaNoWriMo: The Perfectionist’s Tale

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

Monday, Disguised

Today is Monday. But! I tell a lie. It is not Monday, but Sunday. You see, I worked my first Sunday-shift, and the mind-tricks have begun. I am deeply used to working Monday-Friday. When I arose today, having first woken at 5:03am, I thought "It's Monday." Logically, I knew it was not. Less logically, I… Continue reading Monday, Disguised
