Find, Verb.

Today’s post is the second in a series, inspired by a Writing 101 prompt. If you’d like to read the first post of the series, click here. In part one of this series I explored some of the different meanings of the noun “loss”. Today I’m going to explore the verb “find” in a similar…

Home Sweet Home

The prompt I am taking inspiration from today asks me to write about the home I lived in when I was twelve, and to pay particular attention to sentence lengths whilst doing so. When I moved to Bath to go to university it was the first time I’d lived anywhere that wasn’t my childhood home.…

Catty Conversations

The prompt I am working on today (from Writing 101) is to compare and contrast two things. The special twist on this is to write it as a dialogue. I decided to write it as a conversation between our cats, because that seemed like a fun thing to do. “They like me more, of course.” Lola…
