  • The Poet

    Sharing this beautiful poem by my friend Aby. ❤❤❤ Make me sing your song, I told the poet He drew three gossamer strings Laid them in front of me And said, Now play. The Poet

  • Sharing Some Winter Cheer!

    Inspiration comes from all kinds of places for me. There isn’t one single source that I can draw from. Seasonal things are inspirational too, like renewing things in spring, relaxing in the summer heat, or enjoying the beautiful colours of autumn. Winter cheer isn’t so different from Christmas cheer for me, but in the spirit […]

  • Little Snowflake!

    Winter’s coming, lol. Had to. It’s been a long few months since I started back at work after the lockdown, and I’m about ready for a nice Christmas. This year things are weird but good and I have two weeks off work to write, play music, and spend time with my parents.  My musical creativity […]

  • Creative Dissociation!

    I can lose myself in writing so much that time vanishes and, suddenly, it’s lunchtime or time to go to my day job. I’ve been very in and out with my writing pages of fun new revisions or crickets on my WIPs depending on the day or week.  After a mostly calm summer, things have […]

  • Death Is Only the Beginning!

    It’s an old Egyptian saying, which makes sense if you believe in an afterlife. Life is fleeting, but an afterlife is infinite. Okay, ideology aside, I’m referring to fantasy or Sci-Fi stories where death is either an evolved state or temporary. It happens with people dying and getting turned into cyborgs, fighting their way back […]

  • New Logo!

    I know I’m a long way off publishing and branding. But it doesn’t hurt to ponder these things as I work up to the whole marketing stuff. I keep dipping into my lapsed graphic design skills and thinking about the general look I want to go for. I’m still deciding, but I have a possible […]

  • Pearlescent

    Pearlescent

    A little poem from my random Bursts of Words collection. I once had a collection of pearls in an iridescent shell. Each one contained a piece of my heart. Some I wore on a necklace when I needed them while others were safe away from the cruel world. They shimmered in the sunlight and brought […]

  • Organised Creativity and Creative Organisation!

    I bought a beautiful planner. I used to buy one at Christmas, but since I started teaching, I’ve bought one in August in time for the new academic year. It got me thinking how there is creativity in organisation.  My computer backgrounds alternate in themes from fantasy images, character inspiration, nature and space. Every time […]

  • Cleansing your Creative Palette!

    I have multiple project disorder where I keep having too many ideas and projects on the go. Sometimes it’s overwhelming, and I struggle to focus on one project at a time. I’ll be working on one project, then suddenly get zapped with ideas for another, and I can’t concentrate with all these clashing ideas.  It’s […]

  • More Inspiration?

    Yes please.  I admit I get overloaded with inspiration. Just the other night I had an awesome dream that prompted a future novel. I didn’t spend too long on it because I didn’t want to distract myself from Out of Ashes. But Fae and Foe (working title) has been on my mind for a while […]
