I am chuffed to little mint balls to be able to announce that I have had a short story published over here at Literally Stories. Honestly, these guys absolutely rock, unlike many sites, they respond quickly and, more importantly, they actually give excellent constructive criticism, especially Hugh, (who’s lovely). 

Song Lyric Sunday

Good morning all you lovely people! How have you been? I hope that life is taking good care of you. How about some music to kick off your Sunday? It’s time once again for Helen Vahdati’s Song Lyric Sunday which is brought to us by Jim Adams who has kindly taken on the job of providing us with a new prompt each week.


Morning Everyone :O) How’s your week going so far? I hope that you are having more good than bad, more ease than struggle and that it’s not raining (unless you happen to love the rain of course). You may or may not have noticed that I have been around less over the last few days, not because I don’t love being here (which I do) but because I have finally gotten around to starting a novel.  I have been playing with the idea for a few months but I am now 10,000+ words in and the ideas just keep on flowing.

Song Lyric Sunday

Happy Sunday guys, hope that you’re all having a great weekend so far! It doesn’t seem possible that another week has passed but here we are again with Song Lyric Sunday which is brought to us by Jim Adams; do pop over and say hi. If you love music and connecting with other bloggers why not play along, it’s great fun :O)

Fandango’s Provocative Question

Never one to back away from cerebral challenges I’ve decided to have a go at answering it; obviously my answer will be entirely subjective ;O) 

It’s Not Like in the Movies…

Have you ever thought about why we get so much pleasure from watching movies? Or reading books come to that? It’s a question that comes up so often at the start of relationships isn’t it? What’s your favourite movie or your favourite book? Why do they hold such significance for us?

Tell your story

Steve at Msich Chronicles has passed me, as well as the incomparable Tom and Naturally Calamity Jane, the baton in the Tell the Story challenge. It’s quite simple, look at a picture and tell its story. I welcome this challenge, it may be just what…

Get Out!

It’s grey, not pink, that’s a bit of a shock 

But now that it’s out let’s see what we’ve got 

Too many, too much, I’ll make a big pile 

Sifting through this could take quite a long while 

I read this just now and had to reblog it for the poignant beauty of the poem but also for the courage that it took to write. Lorraine is a great and versatile poet and I know that she’s going through a hard time at the moment so, if you like her work, please pop over and tell her so, I know it would mean a lot to her. x

And so now I am alone In the eerie silence of a life gone wrong Shall I unpack my case Such as it is? All that I have is my body Wracked with pain But it is mine No one can steal it from me Like you stole my soul I sit here in the […]


Song Lyric Sunday

How did we get to the end of another week so quickly? I have no idea but here we are again and it’s time for Song Lyric Sunday, our chance to discover new music and and find new blogging friends. Brought to us by Jim Adams (do pop over and say hello, he’d love to see you), this week’s theme is River/Stream/Creek/Brook. If you’d like to play along and I do hope you will because it’s fun, here are some rules for you:
