People Of The Sea Ice – My Upcoming Book

I would like to introduce you to the cover of my upcoming poetry collection, People of the Sea Ice. The image is c.1900s-1910s and was photographed by Whitney's Photographic Studio (established in 1904). This collection is the culmination of many months of hard work. It's been the most challenging collection to write to date, as… Continue reading People Of The Sea Ice – My Upcoming Book

Go Not Near Her She Is Of Witching Way – Things From The Pages Of My Notebook

For weeks and weeks and weeks, I’ve been hounding myself to go back through my notebooks and copy out everything significant. I finally got around to doing it today but only managed to plough through three of five. I’m going to make an attempt (so no promises!) to try and do a ‘Things From The Pages… Continue reading Go Not Near Her She Is Of Witching Way – Things From The Pages Of My Notebook

Just So You Know, Some Wyrd Stuff Is Going On

I had planned for this post to be a good ol' ramble about how social media is treating me since I returned the other day, but I'm saving it for another time. A: because I want to go a full week before reporting on the pitfalls and positives of being back. And B: because I… Continue reading Just So You Know, Some Wyrd Stuff Is Going On

Hushed By The Kerbside – A Poem

The other day, I found a rabbit that had been killed by a car. I needed to write about it. Please forgive the formatting...Wordpress is being an arse and not formatting it how I had it laid out in the original document. *Sigh.* Hushed By The Kirbside Rabbit, what happened to your beautiful eye? The… Continue reading Hushed By The Kerbside – A Poem

Reading In The Dark – The Books I Read In February

February feels like it happened a thousand years ago. I was supposed to get this post up last week, while my memory of February's reading journey had yet to be dimmed by my currently shoddy memory. But writing it was taking energy I didn't have to give, so it's been sat in my drafts until… Continue reading Reading In The Dark – The Books I Read In February

Carry The Fire – Some Quotes For Those Who Write

I am in a peculiar and uncomfortable headspace at the moment and it's making writing poetry difficult. A few weeks ago, after a particularly rough writing day where I produced a poem that better identifies as drivel, I found myself overwhelmed by and then trapped with the idea that every poem I'd write from then… Continue reading Carry The Fire – Some Quotes For Those Who Write

Scribd – It Was Too Good To Be True

I was supposed to be writing about Winter today, but as it turns out, I have to interrupt my posting schedule with something that's really pissed me off. I feel I must tell you about it right now because I want to ensure you don't find yourself in the same depressing-as-fuck situation as me. You… Continue reading Scribd – It Was Too Good To Be True

In These Last Days Of Winter – On Freezing To Death

I've been morbidly fascinated with hypothermia for ages. I even learned how to do SFX makeup which makes me look as though I have frostbite. My fascination has been mounting these past few days, as I've been racing through short stories where the protagonists are faced with death by cold, researching into the stages of… Continue reading In These Last Days Of Winter – On Freezing To Death

In These Last Days Of Winter – The Law Of Life By Jack London

Before I sat down to write this post, I glanced out of my window and saw a teenage girl flouncing past in a crop top, capri leggings and fluffy flip flops. Winter still has a few days left to its name, but in that teen's world, it would seem Spring arrived yesterday. With it being… Continue reading In These Last Days Of Winter – The Law Of Life By Jack London

It’s Been A Strange Day – Sunday Musings

It's been a strange day. The whole weekend has been odd, actually. I've been kind of floating around, feeling all out of sorts, and I haven't been able to put my finger on exactly why I'm feeling this way. I don't know if it's because we're approaching the end of winter, or because my poetry… Continue reading It’s Been A Strange Day – Sunday Musings
