Never more

Happy Halloween!

If you are reading this, then perhaps you (like me) live in a country where Halloween isn’t a big deal, and there aren’t little children or rebellious teenagers with eggs trick-or-treating and ringing the bell every five minutes to break your concentration.

If that’s the case, rest assured I sympathise. Continue reading


The show must go on

I thought about writing all day today. Once again, I looked forward to getting home and just moving on with the story I’m writing about. I couldn’t wait to get on a bus and write some ideas on one of my notebooks. Like a wave, I can feel the writing high building up inside my head.

So I’m not ashamed to admit that I didn’t write a single syllable yesterday. Not even on here. Continue reading

… and I’m back!

Some more writing done. Ha! Feeling like I’m getting it again. You know you got it again when it’s eight in the evening, and you got home late from work and after works drinks with a colleague you never see, and you haven’t seen your husband all day, and you’re so excited you could kiss your computer screen.
