Still writing


It has been a while since I’ve posted anything on either of my blogs. Life catches you in it’s whirlpool sometimes and it can be hard to break free from what needs to be done in order to do what you want to do. I am still writing. I have recently updated my WIP, Esstiiet …

Life, death and everything in between


    I love autumn. It is my favourite time of year, with the myriad of colours, fresh breeze and crunching of leaves underfoot. It is a time of change. And a lot of things always seem to change at this time of year, not just in nature but in life as well. With people …

Step off, dream


Last night I was bombarded with a whole host of weird dreams.  They weren’t nightmares, per say. Nor were they those surreal-what-the-hell-is-happening, am-I-going-to-die type dreams.  They were unsettling and strange.  And they woke me up – several times. The first one I don’t even remember now but it woke me up enough to make me …

Out with the old, in with the new


  So, I have been going through my old writings, those bits of scrap paper and half – filled books with random ramblings on them.  If you’re a writer, you’ll know what I am referring to.  I thought I would post some on my writing blog so I started with Packing Boxes, which I wrote …

Filling the Self-esteem bucket
