Over Coffee (17)

If we were having coffee, it'd be a quiet hour over coffee and idly watching the weather. I've sort of run out of things to talk about, since I have a pile of secret things to not discuss until they're more solid. There's not much new to report on the work front, and the other work front… Continue reading Over Coffee (17)


Over Coffee (12)

If we were having coffee, it'd be a good day for a chai latte. It's been just crisp enough to keep chill in the air but not quite so cold as to need all the layers during the day. I'd tell you a bit about the flash fiction I finished writing last night, already gearing… Continue reading Over Coffee (12)

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.

Question Time

Ugh, I fear I'm slipping back into old habits: posting about the mundane things and bypassing the creative writing which this blog is supposed to centre on. I have, at this point, an overabundance of ideas. A couple of weeks I sat down, phone in hand at tea break, and just typed all these stray… Continue reading Question Time

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
