NaBloPoMo: Feeling Sheepy

Today’s post is inspired by a Writing 101 prompt which is to write a longform post about a favourite possession.  When I was about three years old I had to go to the Ear, Nose and Throat hospital to have grommets put in. I don’t know all the technicalities, but basically grommets are teeny tiny…

NaBloPoMo: Do. Or Do Not.

The Writing 101 prompt I am using today is simply 400 words of free-writing. I actually went slightly over the 400 words, with a final count of 414.  I really enjoy writing. I always have and I expect, hope, that I always will. I’ve talked about my love of writing before on the blog. Sometimes…

NaBloPoMo: Arachnophobia

Today’s post is inspired by a Writing 101 prompt that encourages addressing something that scares you or makes you anxious. I hate spiders. Hate them. They are creepy.

Find, Verb.

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.…

If It Tastes Good

Today I’m taking inspiration from another Writing 101 prompt. You might be wondering why I’m telling you that here in the actual blog post rather than in a happy little italicised note at the top like I’ve been doing all the other times. Well, it’s because the twist for today is to write in my…
