An Abundance of Anagrams

Review of An Abundance of Katherines I know, I’m a little late on the train for this one, but I finished Green’s An Abundance of Katherines at the weekend and I feel I ought to review it, seeing as it’s a book that has divided Green fans. Granted, I am not a Green fan (unless … Continue reading An Abundance of Anagrams

Jazzy Thursday

For your Thursday, instead of my normal re-blog, here's a Jazz song I heard whilst I was manning the Reading Swing Dance stall at the Fresher's faire the whole of today (and my feet now kill): It's All Right With Me, this version performed by the great Ella Fitzgerald. Her voice is lovely, and those … Continue reading Jazzy Thursday

Lifey-Wimey Things

I apologise for a blatant lack of consistency in my posting. At the moment, I'm in an intermittent stage between levels of everything, an 'in-between life'. Like Hazel. You know, that character in some film of a depression book by John Green that's out in Australia and the US, but not the UK yet... Like John … Continue reading Lifey-Wimey Things

More Creative Quotes

Another 'creative' quote from my manuscript, this time from Aidelle's side of the separation. Of regrets and chilling thoughts of being away from him. (It's larger - and the picture was, sadly, more cumbersome than my previous, horizontal photos - therefore, I have to say, the quote carries less elegance than the other, but I still … Continue reading More Creative Quotes

National Poetry Day :)

Today is National Poetry Day - yay! - and the theme this year is water. Now, I've not been writing much actual poetry recently, just ducking in and out and dabbling, so no water metaphors or ideas here, though I'll think during today about that. Just be happy I'm posting poetry at all 😉 'You Think … Continue reading National Poetry Day 🙂

Dizzy and Lethargic

I had convinced myself it wouldn’t happen: that blink-and-miss instance, of burgundy – and don’t we know burgundy is best! – and striped checkers and everything in which I had once believed, perhaps made a cursive idol. A second blink, and the road became a wave of child-like euphoria, the rushing tarmac in pull towards … Continue reading Dizzy and Lethargic

Photo of the WeeK: Toys

Today’s Photo of the Week focuses on one of my weaker photography points: still life. I find nothing wrong with the concrete and one-toned, but my artistic side is livened by studies like the abstract or the natural. A toy may not blow in the wind, but that exact reason may be why I cannot so … Continue reading Photo of the WeeK: Toys

(TCWT) Character Therapy…But For Whom?

The Teens Can Write, Too! blog-chain prompt this month of July was *clears throat*: “Take any character from one of your books and put them in a therapy session.” For this, something I never know how to approach (I saw a similar prompt some time ago, but I passed on it at that point, not … Continue reading (TCWT) Character Therapy…But For Whom?
