The Way I See It… (Hate)

Find all additions to this series by clicking here! This is a term heard often, more so even than love, which is itself overused. It’s a word that rolls off the tongue with seemingly little thought or care of the potential power in it. If Dumbledore was right in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows … Continue reading The Way I See It… (Hate)

Thirty-Five and Counting

So, here I am again. Another year older and wiser. By the time this auto-posts, I should be hungover and getting myself ready for round two of my celebratory birthday drinking sessions. There seems to be this fear people hold in reserve when it comes to growing older. They fear the aging process because age … Continue reading Thirty-Five and Counting

Living the Dream Part 25 (Here We Go Again!)

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear! What have I done? Someone should put me on a procrastination ban!Whilst sat at work, I was passively thinking about my novel, Seas of Vengeance, and, out of absolutely nowhere, thought to myself, “Hey, I think this story arc would work better than the existing one”. On my lunch … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 25 (Here We Go Again!)

Morning (Poem/SOC)

A vibration accompanies a beautiful piano riff. OFF!!! The sound of chirpy twats; Reflections of that big, yellow bastard peeking through the curtains. Time to get up and dressed. My hopes of sleeping forever are again thwarted. Quick! Get dressed. Downstairs to break my fast. I envisage a better life as I await the ping … Continue reading Morning (Poem/SOC)

Living the Dream Part 24 (Crutch)

For the first time in what feels like absolutely ages, I’m doing a LtD post about writing! *Faints* One thing that bugs me while I’m tapping away at my keys is always being conscious of shoehorning myself into a trap of word repetition. I absolutely hate it! If two consecutive sentences start with the same … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 24 (Crutch)

“You can talk to me”

This is another of my mental health awareness themed posts and focuses on the support offered by friends and loved ones to those who are going through times of mental unrest. Over the months, since I came clean about my mental health problems, the phrase for which this post is titled has been uttered and/or … Continue reading “You can talk to me”

Living the Dream Part 23 (Worthless)

My latest offering in this series isn’t a very positive one. The prospect of worthlessness is very much a fact I’m having to face far more than I wish I had to. In recent times, my depression appears to have deepened. It’s deepened to a level I really hoped it wouldn’t. I don’t mean to … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 23 (Worthless)

Thank F**k That’s Over…

This review of 2018 is more a way of me taking stock of everything than telling all my readers about it. It’s a way of trying to make sense of what has been a pretty chaotic time. Where to start? At the beginning I suppose. The first couple of months of 2018 went like most … Continue reading Thank F**k That’s Over…

Living the Dream Part 22 (Doubt)

My schedule is all over the place right now thanks to a hectic Mental Health Awareness Month and a couple of hastily prepared posts in light of recent events. Not to worry though. Things are starting to ease their way back to something resembling normal now. Welcome to another edition of the series centred around … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 22 (Doubt)

Give Up (Poem)

If the shoe simply doesn’t fit… Try on another pair. If they don’t care about you… Tell me, why should you care? If you’re swimming against the current… Maybe you can’t resist. If it’s dragging you downstream… Perhaps you should desist. If the odds are strong against… It’s not always wise to fight. If you … Continue reading Give Up (Poem)
