Over Coffee (54)

If we were having coffee, I'd be pondering various things. It's almost November, so I'm in the middle of November prep. I know, it used to be called NaNoPrep, but I've scheduled in a lot of work for the month, so it needed to be reclaimed. Writing work, I mean. So far I've managed to… Continue reading Over Coffee (54)

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

Back on Track, Part 5

I feel like I've done this a lot this year, made attempts to reboot this blog from the ashes. Flash Fiction August is ended not with a bang, but with a whimper - the other night I was struggling to get past 300 words on a piece that I wanted to be 1,000. There's been… Continue reading Back on Track, Part 5

Word Crush Monday: Degas

It's been a decent sort of a day today. That project-plan I mentioned the other day is picking up steam: I'll tell you about it properly over coffee this weekend. It's a lot of fun, and I'm very happy with certain details - not to mention it's going to be a new experience. Quote of… Continue reading Word Crush Monday: Degas

Over Coffee (36)

If we were having coffee, I'd be lingering over a large plain black coffee. I don't know why, I've been drinking sad mochas all week and it's annoying. They're supposedly raspberry flavoured, but are turning out to be as raspberry-ish as this bag of Doritos. I'm early, I miscalculated the bus timetables and got here a… Continue reading Over Coffee (36)

Over Coffee (8)

If we were having coffee, it'd be an after-dinner lark. You had dinner early, and I had dinner late. I didn't have the time today for a proper meet-up, because I worked an eight-hour shift. I've worked Monday - Saturday this week, so please excuse the yawning. I'm honestly not bored. I also might leave… Continue reading Over Coffee (8)

Over Coffee (6)

If we were having coffee, I'd be drinking herbal tea. Something fruity, with a touch of honey. I'm off coffee right now. I'd tell you about the long workweek I've deliberately had. I've put in overtime for no apparent reason; also, I'm apologizing in advance that I can't stay long. I'm working tomorrow as well, taking… Continue reading Over Coffee (6)
