We write differently. We all have our own processes, things that work for us and things that don't. Some are more chaotic than others. Being a chaotic writer is a challenge all in itself. As someone who doesn't do much outlining, its easy to feel like your way of writing isn't legitimate, that you aren't… Continue reading The Most Chaotic Pantser In The World
It's okay, nobody panic, I'm not going anywhere. But I've noticed in the last couple weeks that I'm feeling a bit... thin on the ground for ideas when it comes to blogging. Earlier in the year, I frequently had a dozen or so blog posts queued up and ready to go. Now, sometimes I'm rushing… Continue reading A Blogging Announcement
Apparently, if you like to watch football (soccer, to you Transatlantic people), you have 'a team.' A club you'll support no matter what. A club you buy merch for, cheer when they win crucial games, and cry when they get relegated. So, what team do I support? Well, I support Portsmouth. I spent a year… Continue reading What Football Team Do I Support?
*Okay, so, not really. It contains potato, which was only brought to Britain in the 1580s. But pottage was still being eaten by that point, so I'm sure somebody made something similar, at some point? I did it because I wanted to cheat. See, traditional pottage (so-called because it was cooked in a pot) was… Continue reading I Made Medieval Pottage!*
Yes, I thought you should be the first to know. I have a personal assistant*. After all, this writer life is very difficult. There are too many things to keep track of - and after I kept agreeing to new projects, I knew I needed to become more organised, because otherwise, I was going to… Continue reading I Have A PA!
If you've seen me online at all, you've probably guessed that I'm a fan of emojis. You are correct. I use them often, maybe too much, and some times in twos, threes or more. I'm sure some people roll their eyes at this. If they do, I wonder if they're missing something. Emojis are very… Continue reading What I Think About Emojis
I've got the house to myself this week (the fam are on holiday), so I've taken the opportunity to try cooking some new foods! I've taken some recipes friends have given me and had a go at cooking them, without googling pictures beforehand to see what they should look like. A fun challenge! And I… Continue reading Cooking Corn Fritters And Frikadeller!
I've been trying to make a personal coat of arms (or achievement, as it's properly known) for a long time now. First thing's first: in the UK and many other countries, you can't just go ahead and design your own coat of arms. To officially acquire one, you have to have one presented to you… Continue reading Make Yourself a Coat of Arms
Yeah, so I had a crush. That sh*t can throw you. I thought I'd write about this a little bit. Because when crushes appear in the media, 99% of the time it's a teenage crush: maybe their first love interest, and usually there's no real conflict involved. Yes, maybe they have another love interest, or… Continue reading On Having A Crush
This is quite a personal blog post. If you don't want to read it, that's fine, and if you bail half-way through, I won't mind. But it's something I really need to talk about. I recently discovered that 'sex positivity' exists. When I googled it, it was like a light turned on in my head,… Continue reading Sex Positivity (Possibly Sensitive)
