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


Word Crush Monday: Wright

I'm not quite sure where the days are going. It's almost mid-July, and Christmas is racing up on us again. Today I speed-read through two skinny little eBooks, devouring ten-chapter mysteries and guessing correctly on one of them. The other, I had to consciously switch off my  brain. I also solved a code-breaker puzzle which… Continue reading Word Crush Monday: Wright

Day 186

So. I'm back, only not really because all the things I've been planning have sort of gone by the wayside a little bit.

Day 232

It's a Friday, theoretically, but my weekend began last night so now I have a degree of confusion about which day it is, exactly. I've spent some of the day fixing up my Kobo library because I had 200 books in the Reading queue and that's only a slight exaggeration - now I only have… Continue reading Day 232


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
