WIP – Traveller’s Stop

Working on a little map for my D&D players, I decided that everyone might want to take advantage. So I’m going to make it available for everyone. When I’m done with it, that is. In the meantime, you’ll just have to be happy with this little snapshot of the map. In case you’re wondering, I’m […]

NaNoWriMo Madness

As I write this, it’s 2 days and 3,587 words into the crazy time that is National Novel Writing Month! And yes, I am scheduling this post because I know very well I may not be able to find the time to write an update later in the week. Today, I wrote on the bus […]

Inspiration from outer space

Those of you who follow me on Facebook and Instagram may have seen this wonderful image pop up in their feed a couple of weeks ago. Our universe can create the most colourful of displays and I’m glad that we have the technology needed to catch the spectacle…I’m far from the best of poets but […]

New Year – New Writing Space

 The last few years have been hectic for sure…  Three and a half years ago, I started a new full-time job. It came with a lot of training and learning, even more travelling and awesome new friends. That time also saw all three of my children start secondary school. I’ve been studying part-time to get […]
