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

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

What Is Bringing You Joy Today? – Snow

Old Man Winter clearly heard me yesterday, grumbling that it wasn't fair that the South of the country was getting the snowfall. When I woke up this morning after having had a dream that left me feeling like I hadn't slept at all (I'm having far too many of those sorts these days) he'd left… Continue reading What Is Bringing You Joy Today? – Snow

Some Thoughts On Two Weeks Away From Social Media

It's been two weeks since I signed out of my social media accounts, and, as it was when I was writing my last post about this topic, my phone is on the other side of the room. The only sound it's made today was when my alarm went off this morning. I don't have as… Continue reading Some Thoughts On Two Weeks Away From Social Media

Is It Snowing Where You Are? – Winter Art & Words

I spend much of my days researching into and writing about Winter. I'll be writing about Winter as the seasons shift, and the days become longer and warmer, and then, as we move into the colder months again. I'm already anticipating the diary I'll keep from November, by which time I'll hopefully be in Norway.… Continue reading Is It Snowing Where You Are? – Winter Art & Words

Write Yourself Awake: Wyrd Creative Writing Prompts

How's your writing year going so far? Extremely fucking well I hope! My plan for what writing I'd like to get done this year has been shifted around and re-drafted in the past few days, as I found myself experiencing a stronger pull to the projects I wanted to work on in the second half… Continue reading Write Yourself Awake: Wyrd Creative Writing Prompts

Some Things That Have Been Bringing Me Joy

Something I've really started to pay more attention to this year is the small things that bring me joy. And I thought that sharing a few examples of what's been making me happy these past few days would be a restful - yet still hopefully inspiring - way to wind down this hectic (but positive… Continue reading Some Things That Have Been Bringing Me Joy
