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

We Of The Craft Are All Crazy – Things From The Pages Of My Notebook

It's been a little while since I've done one of these - you can read the first one here if you like - and I was going through my notes today anyway, so I thought I'd share with you some choice pickings. If anything peaks your interest and has you reaching for your own notebook,… Continue reading We Of The Craft Are All Crazy – Things From The Pages Of My Notebook

Fire Found Me – I Blogged For 31 Days

I set myself a challenge at the beginning of January - to blog every single day of the month. And I did. I completed the challenge. Sitting here, writing to you, and telling you about my accomplishment feels fucking brilliant. There were a few days where it was rough going, but mostly, it was a… Continue reading Fire Found Me – I Blogged For 31 Days

Writing In The Dark – Horror Writing Prompts

It has been a while, a really long while, since I've read something that's creeped me out. I think the last thing was Algernon Blackwood's novella The Wendigo...and we're going back ages now. I thrive on scaring myself half to death, so being unable to find satisfyingly scary stories - or poems - has produced… Continue reading Writing In The Dark – Horror Writing Prompts

Do It Scared – Things From The Pages Of My Notebook

I was struggling to think of what to write about today. I usually plan my blog post the night before, but last night, none of my ideas could hold their ground. (I always struggle with life on a Saturday night, knowing Sunday is mere hours away...Sunday and I have a bittersweet relationship.) It was the… Continue reading Do It Scared – Things From The Pages Of My Notebook

I’m Taking A Social Media Sabbatical

I was on Instagram last night when I was struck with the thought 'you need to spend some time away from this, some time away from Instagram and Facebook, some time away from social media.' I haven't been spending that much time on these platforms recently, not since deciding a few weeks ago that I… Continue reading I’m Taking A Social Media Sabbatical
