Here Be Dragons

I was planning out a cool post for today, but I seem to have lost the train of thought. You'd think after the first year of delving into writing, I would remember to make notes, but I'm still catching up on that habit. I was going to do a lot more with the weekend, but… Continue reading Here Be Dragons

December Plans

It's almost December, you guys. This thought doesn't freak me out as much as I thought it would, so I'm making a bit of a plan regarding my NaNoWriMo. This time, I'm going to spend the next few months working on it. Every year prior to this one, I've written it and then left it… Continue reading December Plans

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

Day 22

I've been caught up with job-hunting, and have not had much of a chance to be on here. I've been seeking admin-type work, and am sending out applications to places. Actually, one was less admin and more writing, so yeah, I applied for that. It's a media type, not fiction, but it still looks good.… Continue reading Day 22

Culture Shock

So... Today is December 28, and I'm at a bit of a loose end. The other night I was browsing around online, looking for word inspiration, and I came across an advertising banner. You know the kind, they advertise online games or some company or tell you that you've won all the money in the… Continue reading Culture Shock

Making Plans

"We should do something to commemorate your birthday. It's coming up soon, isn't it?""Well, it is, but you know I'm not big on celebration." She frowns at him, digs her nail into the table and leaves a small scar that blends in with the grainy design of the wood."Eighteen is important. You'll be a legal adult.""Fine.… Continue reading Making Plans

The Wanderer

I'm actually not a traveller, so I'm answering this based on my personality.I could never be someone who roams aimlessly. I'd like to be, but I need maps. I need checklists with headings and subheadings, and I need itineraries. Pretend you dropped me off in France. I would go to the first wi-fi area I could… Continue reading The Wanderer

The Future, In Just Six Words

For Mum and Dad. Love you. This is, in six words, the dedication I'll inscribe in my first novel when publishing. I would've made it longer, but today's prompt says six words. (I've never understood how an author can put in the barest dedication: one author, I've seen will literally just say For K.) Thus… Continue reading The Future, In Just Six Words
