Idea Monkeys, Hard At Work

This was going to be a Faux Landlords. I blame the headache; I've had a monster headache today. I'm rather wrecking my blog schedule lately, but I did withdraw my most recent NaNoWriMo effort to begin work on it. Cleanup, new scenery, that kind of thing. I'm still indecisive as to what I should call… Continue reading Idea Monkeys, Hard At Work


it's another of those days where there's nothing new to write, or say. the year is coming to a close and it's getting oddly more difficult to do an honest piece of creative writing, not just the same sort of prompts and challenges that are often pulled together. three more days of this: of not… Continue reading wonderings

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

Absence From Writing

For Day 9 of Writing 101 I've thrown all caution to the wind, chucked the schedule out the window and torn up my imaginary guidelines. I decided to simply do this thing out of order, partially for my own amusement when I come back and have to reassess which ones I haven't done. Also, I… Continue reading Absence From Writing

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

Crafty Monday

I promise, the crafty doesn't mean I'm up to nefarious deeds. It just means I'm making headway on my crochet. On Saturday, I purchased a crochet kit. This kit includes a "sewing needle", so dull you could not injure yourself on it; a poorly-done instructions list and a ball of lovely silver-shimmery purple wool. Oh, and a… Continue reading Crafty Monday

Driven Forward

So, I'm going to answer the daily prompt, but first we start with the umbrella answer. This is my general answer, the one that encompasses a hundred little details, and then I'm going to hit some of the highlights for you. My... motivation, shall we say, for getting up every day is life. I'll treat this… Continue reading Driven Forward

Karmic Dealings

Ooh, fun. Karma. It's not really something I believe in, but for the sake of argument amusement let's say it's Scientifically Real and I totally believe in it. Actually, I do believe in it, as defined by today's prompt. Your words and actions will influence what will happen to you in the future - as far as I… Continue reading Karmic Dealings

They’re Just Numbers… Aren’t They?

So today I had a letter from the elves at Inland Revenue.I suspected that they were going to ask for money, the better to start chipping away at my loan. Of course, they didn't. As I said to my parents, the actual objective was to terrify me into next week remind me what I owe.And… Continue reading They’re Just Numbers… Aren’t They?

On Acceptance Speeches

I don't buy saving the best for last. Nope. If it's a meal, I'm going to start with the best food I like, before it goes cold. And in an acceptance speech wherein I thank people, I'm going to start with the most important people and proceed from there. My reasoning is this: my speech is going… Continue reading On Acceptance Speeches
