InCoWriMo

As my long-term followers will know, I’ve taken part in NaNoWriMo and NaBloPoMo several times over the past few years. Some years I have more success than others, of course, but I still have a great time doing them as part of Motivember.

Knowing this about me, a friend of mine recently pointed out Continue reading

Review: Island Ghosts

Tags

, , , ,

She had voluminous cumulus hair, a small, ruddy, grey floating fleck of a nose. The contours of her aquiline face were etched in the darker curves of the cloud. There was a pink edge to her cloudy, swaying form that was slightly painful to look at. She was fading, her essence bleeding away into the sky, slipping from material reality, dissolving into another state. And then she was gone. Just clouds.

Bain, David (2013-11-16). Island Ghosts: A Will Castleton Adventure (Kindle Locations 170-174). . Kindle Edition.

David Bain’s Island Ghosts (on Goodreads, on Amazon) is a short story of just 3000 words that is just part of a series of books. I’ve had it in my Kindle library for a while, and just happened to choose it to meet the “takes place on an island” criteria for a reading challenge I am doing. Continue reading

Busy Little Bee

Just a quick post today to let you know we now have our very own dedicated Facebook page! You can find it over here.

I’m keeping so busy trying to get ahead on posts for the other blogs of this “blogging empire” (as my dad dubbed it!) that I seem to have neglected this one. I just checked my schedule and realised I was meant to post something here and hadn’t prepare anything. Hence the announcement of the Facebook page. I figure it’s better than nothing!

In my last post I teased about being more successful in blogging this year than at first seems to be the case. I told you to watch this space for more information, so here it is! Continue reading

Fresh Start

SampsonTwo weeks into the new year and I haven’t posted anything here yet! In fact it has been quite a while since I last posted. I planned to take a short break after Motivember before getting right back in to blogging. Obviously things didn’t go exactly as I’d intended. Continue reading

Motivember 2015: Summing Up

Tags

, , ,

In some ways it hardly seems worth summing up again when I did a summary of sorts yesterday. But I traditionally end Motivember with a post in which I discuss how the month as a whole went so… Here we go.

Week 4 – Motivember 2015

Well would you look at that, I’m still alive! Apologies for disappearing for the last few days. As I previously mentioned I’ve been unwell, and then it seems everything got away from me! In any case we have now come to the end of the final full week of Motivember 2015 and it’s time to see how this week has gone.

Feeling Icky

It's All Too MuchI’m ill today. Not sure what the problem is… It feels like it may be the beginnings of flu but I’m not certain. I really hope it isn’t.

In any case I am lacking the energy to write a proper blog post so I am falling back to my old standard of posting a cat picture. (Even though it feels wrong to do so, because I need my cat pictures for when I post on Katzenworld!)

The picture seemed an appropriate choice. Lola looks how I feel! Continue reading

Week 3 – Motivember 2015

We’ve now reached the final few hours of Motivember’s third week. It’s been a long and tiring one, and I’m kind of glad it’s over. Whilst the week has been productive, it hasn’t exactly been in the manner I was hoping…
