The Necessary Nuisance of Naming

So I’ve been feeling a bit better about writing in the past few days. I think making a post about creative drought did me a favour, I got all those nagging feelings vented out and admitted what needed to change. Since then, I’ve been more relaxed, and I can feel sprinkles of inspiration coming back.Continue reading “The Necessary Nuisance of Naming”

Embracing Ennui

So today marks exactly 4 months since I started writing my book idea. Each month on the 16th, I like to have a little check in (no-pressure!) to see how much I’ve got done. Last time in October, I was really happy with my progress, having reached over 10,000 words. This time, although I saidContinue reading “Embracing Ennui”

A Lidl Bit of Inspiration

So yesterday, (Monday) is our weekly shopping day. Where I live, the weather has been ridiculous, two bridges were swept away in a nearby town just a short while ago. Thankfully we haven’t been flooded here, but the rain has been torrential, and it still was that morning. Needless to say I was not excitedContinue reading “A Lidl Bit of Inspiration”

A Rewarding Ramble (Writing Report)

The 4th of the month is a special day for me and my husband every time it comes around, for many reasons. Mostly, because it’s our dating anniversary. But also, it’s the one day a month that we get a takeaway. In this month though, November, there was even more to celebrate than usual. So,Continue reading “A Rewarding Ramble (Writing Report)”

Halloween Horror Films – Ranked & Reviewed

So for Halloween this October, my husband and I tried to find a lot of new horror films that I hadn’t seen before. I was a bit nervous of being scared but I enjoyed them a lot more than I thought I would. This isn’t the type of thing I usually post but there wasn’tContinue reading “Halloween Horror Films – Ranked & Reviewed”

Slender Man (2018) – So Bad It’s Bad

SPOILERS BELOW: Before watching this film I’d heard a lot of bad things about it, and I’m here to tell you that they’re all true. As a lover of all things awful though I knew I owed it to myself to give it a watch. I’m glad I did, because while as a horror movie,Continue reading “Slender Man (2018) – So Bad It’s Bad”

First Ever Poem Attempt for National Poetry Day!

Technically when I post this, National Poetry Day will have been yesterday, but I only found out that there was such a thing a few hours ago. To be honest, I know absolutely nothing about the rules of poetry, it’s not something I’ve ever tried, so I didn’t really know where to begin. It wasContinue reading “First Ever Poem Attempt for National Poetry Day!”

Changed by a Chicken

This Monday afternoon, as my husband brought home the shopping and placed the whole, raw chicken that I’d asked for in front of me, I felt a shiver coming on. Cutting up? Butchering? There really isn’t a nice way to describe the fowl process of seperating the bird into parts, it’s by far the worstContinue reading “Changed by a Chicken”
