Versatile Blogger Award!


I know it’s a small thing really but it’s given me such a buzz.  Oh heck, I will admit it, I actually made a ‘Squee’ noise when I saw that Carrie Rubin over at The Write Transition had given me the Versatile Blogger Award!  Thanks Carrie!  Loving your blog and just plain old loving you … Continue reading

Sex is Fun!


There, I said it!  Now, Mum, if you are reading this.  Stop now!  Look at the kitty instead! Right, so, as I was saying, sex is fun.  I think in writing that we can get caught up in the hot stuff and forget that good sex is fun too.  We focus on the intensity and … Continue reading

Expect the unexpected?


It’s been an interesting week Chez Moi and I thought I would just do a little recap for my own benefit really.  Several ‘firsts’ have happened both in writing and in ‘real’ life. Firstly, I submitted my work to a competition.  It’s not national or anything but there is a small possibility of publishing (if … Continue reading

My other life


Today I spent time working on my other life.  You know, the one that requires me to step away from the keyboard occasionally and attend meetings and whatnot. I’m Branch Secretary for my local National Childbirth Trust branch.  It’s a new organisation but not a new role.  I was an Admin in my working life … Continue reading

Reading leads to writing


I love to read.  I know that’s probably not surprising.  I am a writer after all, where would I learn my craft if I don’t read.  I have always loved to read. I learned to read at a very young age.  My parents borrowed reading books from my older sisters’ school for me to read. … Continue reading

A little love


Romance is an interesting thing.  It’s different for everyone.  Sure, hearts and flowers is the most known about form of romance but the romance that gets to you is the personal stuff.  It’s the person who writes a little note for you to find at an unexpected because they know it will cheer you up.  It’s … Continue reading

Rewrite, rewrite, rewrite some more


I’m working on a short piece in preparation for sending in for a competition.  Setting aside the mind-numbing what-the-hell-am-I-thinking-and-what-makes-me-think-I-stand-a-chance fear (back in your box with you!).  I’m an in the depths of rewrites. I know the story is good.  I know it’s worthy of submission.  But it needs work.  I’ve already gone through a couple … Continue reading

Mini Musings


There’s nothing me inspiring to me than reading.

Why I write


I know this is a fairly standard post for most writers. I think that there are as many reasons for writing as there are writers. Whether it’s for the hoped for prestige or because we go slightly nuts if we don’t write, I think why we write is as important as what we write. Let … Continue reading
