Plenty of time to die

It feels like we have all been waiting for Daniel Craig’s last Bond film for a long time. There’s a reason for that. We have. Tonight, I’m off to see No Time To Die, as MGM intended, by sneaking a meal deal and possibly a coffee into the cinema with me and propping my knees…… Continue reading Plenty of time to die

Respect your elders

Yesterday, I spent some time with the cool older relatives of my partner. It reminded me of conversations I would have with my grandparents (god rest their souls). It left a slightly melancholy feeling with me that I wanted to explore a little by celebrating my grandparents. My nan passed away when I was too…… Continue reading Respect your elders

A day at the races.

Even before we had passed through the less-than-stringent security checks at the gate, I had a feeling our day out was not going to be as expected up until that moment. I don’t know if it was in the stumbling walks of those patrons ahead of us (at 2pm) or the general air that it…… Continue reading A day at the races.

An update

I’ve failed to post anything to my blog in over a month. There’s a very good reason for this. I’ve been obsessing over something else. Some writing. A bigger THING than anything I’ve done before. Depending on the edit, it’s between 134k and 136k. For the longest time, I’ve had a goal in mind for…… Continue reading An update

Am I still writing?

Last week, a friend asked if I was still writing and where they could read more of what I’ve been doing. While I love that people are aware of my passion for writing and know that it’s what I want to be doing more than anything else in the world, I’m not currently in a…… Continue reading Am I still writing?

Failing Camp NaNoWriMo

At the start of April, I was bragging about the work I was undertaking, intent on writing 90,000 words in a month. I updated my blog about it every day and then I went radio silent for three weeks. I can’t completely cover the reasons for this. All I can say is that something else…… Continue reading Failing Camp NaNoWriMo

Camp NaNoWriMo – Day 12

In my usual way, I am being far too harsh on myself. Today I hit the 30k mark but I know I’m five thousand words behind where I expected to be. If I had kept the marker at 50,000, as is the goal for anyone else doing the National Novel Writing Month challenges then I…… Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo – Day 12

Camp NaNoWriMo – Day Eight

I’ve recovered from the position I left myself in yesterday, which is an incredible personal achievement considering how busy I’ve been all day. I don’t know how much of Chapter Seven will remain because even as I was putting it together it felt like filler but it’s all working towards something. At the end of…… Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo – Day Eight
