A 50th Post Fiasco! + Photo Prompt!

So after I did last week’s post, WordPress notified me that it was actually my 50th one, which just about coincided with the 1 year anniversary of the blog too! Unfortunately, it was a kind of dour post, which is a shame for that kind of milestone. However… I’m here to make up for itContinue reading “A 50th Post Fiasco! + Photo Prompt!”

The Storm After the Calm + Photo Prompt!

So it’s been just over a week now since I finally finished the book, and all the fun and excitement has had a bit of time to die down, leaving behind something more… unexpected. The very next morning after completing the book, I noticed that I had an incredibly bad migraine. At first, I justContinue reading “The Storm After the Calm + Photo Prompt!”

One Year In Writing + Photo Prompt & Poem

So this week, it’ll be just over a year since I really, properly started trying to write a book, instead of just floating the idea around! At the time, I gave myself a goal of 6 weeks to get it finished. Having never written anything before, I had no idea how ridiculous of a goalContinue reading “One Year In Writing + Photo Prompt & Poem”

An Attempt At Art + Photo Prompt & Poem!

So this week I’ve been continuing with my third book idea, but I decided to save the real big progress update till next week, when it’ll be exactly a year since I started writing. Instead, this time I did some fun side-quest stuff, and made some sketches and props for the book! In the majorityContinue reading “An Attempt At Art + Photo Prompt & Poem!”

Third Book Lucky + Poem & Photo Prompt!

Its good to be back! And I’ve certainly been busy! A lot of my time over the past month has been taken up with fixing up my garden and redecorating my bedroom, and I know I’ve been rather neglecting my blog posts. (Which I definitely want to talk about later) But between all the house-yContinue reading “Third Book Lucky + Poem & Photo Prompt!”

The Hidden Challenge of Horror + Poem & Photo Prompt

So last week I had another nightmare. I don’t have them often, but when I do, they’re much more memorable than my usual dreams, which fizzle away as soon as I wake up. Taking book ideas from nightmares seems to be becoming a bit of a habit now, and I’ve already got a big backlogContinue reading “The Hidden Challenge of Horror + Poem & Photo Prompt”

An Unexpected Challenge + Poem & Photo Prompt!

So last week I went into a library for the first time in years. A leaflet stand caught my eye, and all of a sudden, I found myself unable to resist taking on a new challenge. This January, my husband made the New Year’s resolution to try and read 100 books in 2022. He’s beenContinue reading “An Unexpected Challenge + Poem & Photo Prompt!”

The Enthusiasm of Evenings + Poem & Photo Prompt!

So this week, specifically last night, I got the second chapter of my new book finished! I’m up to 7300 words now, which I’m really happy with. Progress for this story is coming a lot quicker and a lot easier than for the first one I started last year. But this time, it’s got aContinue reading “The Enthusiasm of Evenings + Poem & Photo Prompt!”

The Side Effect of Seasons

After a long dry spell, I’ve been grateful for whatever progress I can make lately. Though that meant starting a new book, at least I was getting something done, which felt great! As I’ve been going along though, I started to wonder why this particular story was appealing to me right now, and I’ve comeContinue reading “The Side Effect of Seasons”

Headway in May! + Poem & Photo Prompt

So this week I’ve got a bit of good news. After all the stress about cleaning was over, I finally started to get some proper writing done, and I’m pleased to say that I’ve finished 2000 words of a new book! A few months ago I made a post about whether it was a goodContinue reading “Headway in May! + Poem & Photo Prompt”
