Hear me out, friend. I promise I'm not turning into a capitalist vampire. I don't know about you, but for the last week or so I haven't been able to do anything online without coming across someone ranting about Black Friday, about how consumerism and capitalism are the marks of the beast, and we should … Continue reading In Defence of Black Friday
In my last post, I said that I hoped to be able to reveal some of my reasons for dropping NaNo early next year. Well, friend, the stars have aligned and I can reveal one of them to you now. Right here, in this very post! This past Monday, after weeks of planning and negotiation, … Continue reading Have I Got News For You!
Another ramble about more stuff: Birthdays, NaNoWriMo, and Silk Flower Goodbye
I had hoped to be further along in my NaNo prep by now, but... October has, yet again, not been a kind month to me. Although I am pleased to say I am now a certified trainer. (Not that kind of trainer.) Sadly, in the space of a week (well, 8 or 9 days), my … Continue reading Oh, For Five Cents

I'm just struggling. And it's impacting on my ability to create, well, anything really - despite the fact that I have hundreds … Continue reading The Truth Is…
I didn't manage to get this week's post (MSUM Part 2) done because I've been battling the plague all week. To make up for it, there'll be two posts next week. Also, if you don't already follow me on Twitter, now's the time. I made it to 1500 Twitter followers yesterday, so I'm running a … Continue reading Quick Announcement
I've been a busy bee lately, but mostly not writing. The weekend before my last post was spent with some of the most important people in my life. These are the people who support me. These are the people who inspire me. These are the people who focus me. I didn't write anything during their … Continue reading Buzz Buzz
