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”
The Hidden Shame of Housework + Photo Prompt & Poem!
So this is what my bathroom looked like last week: And (thankfully) this is what it looks like now! This is definitely a rather extreme example, since we were redecorating, which kind of explains the mess, but still, it didn’t stop me from feeling pretty rubbish about it! It got me thinking about something that’sContinue reading “The Hidden Shame of Housework + Photo Prompt & Poem!”
Monthly Movies (March!) + Poem & Photo Prompt!
So after taking a break from movies in February, (I think it was Baby Geniuses that ruined my appetite) I managed to get back into the zone in March, and I achieved the goal of 1 movie almost each day! I think this month overall had a lot more enjoyable movies than January did, I’dContinue reading “Monthly Movies (March!) + Poem & Photo Prompt!”
The Kindness of Kombat + Poem & Photo Prompt!
So in the past few weeks I’ve fallen in love with a new game. It’s probably one of the most brutal and violent games of all time, the kind of game that’s been banned by many concerned parents that don’t want their kids to grow up to be monsters! However, as I’ve been playing, I’veContinue reading “The Kindness of Kombat + Poem & Photo Prompt!”
The Trouble With Titles + Poem & Photo Prompt!
So after getting a bit burned out recently, I’ve been easing myself back in to writing and doing my projects. I’m not back to 100% productivity yet, (maybe about 70%!) But I do have a good excuse this time. At the start of the week, my washing machine kindly decided to stop working, leaving meContinue reading “The Trouble With Titles + Poem & Photo Prompt!”
Battling the Burnout + Poem & Photo Prompt!
So for the past week or so, my husband and I have been feeling pretty ill. It wasn’t the Corona, which I’m very grateful for, but whatever kind of virus it was really knocked us both out. Because I spent most of the week lying down with a migraine, moaning about feeling rubbish and generallyContinue reading “Battling the Burnout + Poem & Photo Prompt!”
