A Computerless Day

I'm sick (again) so you get a Daily Prompt answer (again). Turns out I'm low on iron and there's some random little virus at home in my body. Hurray! Anyway. Once I stopped staring silently at the cursor, I tried to picture life without my computer. Here's a breakdown (no, not that sort) TV. Admittedly, not a big part… Continue reading A Computerless Day

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

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

A Life-Changing Blog

I bet you guys can guess what life-changing magic I'd like to attain from blogging. Regular readers, for sure... even those of you who are new here might have an idea. Go on, have a guess.  (I was going to do some clever thing where I revealed the answer at the end of the post… Continue reading A Life-Changing Blog

Saturday Night, Uneventful

No, not really. Not yet anyway. I've come to the conclusion that Saturday is my worst time for posting something. I just spent about nine minutes browsing the interwebs, three minutes looking at a game I'm playing and... hm, several other minutes quietly hating my blank text box. I considered the ten-minute stream of consciousness and… Continue reading Saturday Night, Uneventful

In the Stream

This is the first night in a while I've not set out to write anything in particular - thanks for nothing, Mr Computer who threw five tantrums and had to be restarted. I figured in the end I'd do a ten-minutes thing and if you guys happen to read it, well that's cool. There was… Continue reading In the Stream

Word Crush Wednesday: Paul Klee

So, this week marks the 'end' of my six-week work assignment. Turns out though, I still have a job next week. Apparently it could become ongoing, so I shall wait and hear. It seems a very open-ended placement, and the people are pleased with how things are working out. This year I've been working more… Continue reading Word Crush Wednesday: Paul Klee

Monday, Monday

It's occurred to me that for all that I've been planning out short stories, I haven't done the writing. Yet. Luckily, the ideas have tapered off a bit, affording me a little more time to breathe and work on them more. I have seven pages on the "One Note" app thing, planning a total of almost… Continue reading Monday, Monday

Blogging 201: Day 1

Hi all! So this is, admittedly, my second post of the day (could in fact have been fourth, but I decided to be sensible and create A Plan) and it's also a bit of a confession: I have done Blogging 201 before. However, I'm not trying to dredge up Ye Olde Bloge Posts. I'm redoing it… Continue reading Blogging 201: Day 1

A Blogger’s Return

So... been a while. I'm still convinced someone is stealing time, because here we are and it's suddenly mid-March. I've been low on inspiration too, run out of poems to post and idle things to say, and then I realized I was basically at the point of posting once per week. Considering my goal is… Continue reading A Blogger’s Return
