Badgered by my own Brain + Photo Prompt & Poem!

So this week I still haven’t been able to get my new idea out of my head. I wondered if I should try and focus on the story I’ve made progress on already, but this new one just won’t leave me alone! (In a good way) I think about it when I go to sleep,Continue reading “Badgered by my own Brain + Photo Prompt & Poem!”

Expressing an Atmosphere + Photo Prompt & Poem!

So last week I experienced a terrible nightmare, that eventually morphed into a new idea for a book. I got really excited about this idea in particular, and I’ve been unable to keep my mind off it ever since. Since I started writing my notes down about it, I’ve got a pretty clear vision forContinue reading “Expressing an Atmosphere + Photo Prompt & Poem!”

From Nightmare, to New Idea! + Photo Prompt & Poem

So last week I had a terrible nightmare for the first time in many months. I rarely dream, so it’s very unusual for me to have a bad dream at all. It was the kind where you can’t wake up, tossing and turning around in fear. It all felt so real, I thought I wasContinue reading “From Nightmare, to New Idea! + Photo Prompt & Poem”

An Unexpected Update + Photo Prompt & Poem!

So a few weeks ago I made a post about my New Year’s resolutions, one of which was to start a YouTube channel. I got started with it, then made a post complaining about how hard it was to use editing software. Then I complained again about doing voiceovers, because of my sore teeth. FinallyContinue reading “An Unexpected Update + Photo Prompt & Poem!”

Back in Time for Burns Day + Photo Prompt & Poem

So I’ve just returned from my birthday/anniversary holiday! It was a very chilled out holiday, as opposed to the kind where you try to cram in as many activities and days out as you can. I always save that for the summer one! I gave myself the week off to relax, but despite that, IContinue reading “Back in Time for Burns Day + Photo Prompt & Poem”

Hurrying Before A Holiday + Poem & Photo Prompt

So this week I kept working on that editing software, which is still a daunting prospect, but it’s getting a little easier.

Navigating Into The New Year + Photo Prompt & Poem

So I took a little week or so off for Christmas since I was so busy, but now I’m back again for a new year! I didn’t get a huge amount of writing done, but then again, I didn’t get a huge amount of anything done over the holidays! I’m not feeling bad about itContinue reading “Navigating Into The New Year + Photo Prompt & Poem”

A Craving for the Countryside + Poem & Photo Prompt

So a few days ago I saw a woman’s photograph online of the Scottish countryside, it was really beautiful, and it gave me such a strong sense of longing and nostalgia that it almost hurt. I began looking through my own pictures of the country areas that I used to go to, and it justContinue reading “A Craving for the Countryside + Poem & Photo Prompt”

A Few Festive Writing Feats!

So this week marks the time of year where it is now acceptable for me to unleash all of my pent up Christmas excitement. The 3 trees are up, the paper chains are hanging, the snowflakes are in the process of ‘falling’ onto my windows, and I am loving it! On top of (or maybeContinue reading “A Few Festive Writing Feats!”

A Real Return to Writing

So this week, I’m very pleased to say that I actually got some proper stuff done! And best of all, I managed not to stress about it, and I succeeded in cutting down my time on the phone. Progress on my current story might not have been huge, but I’m gradually getting back into it.Continue reading “A Real Return to Writing”
