Photo of the Week: Musicae

I know, I know, it's a Thursday, and we can't destroy the schedule - but I did warn you that I'm not quite back into mind yet. 😉 Plus, I haven't had much to shoot. But we went into Oxford today, and that city is home to me; and so I get so inspired by … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Musicae

TCWT: By the Examples of Books

It’s time for December’s Teens Can Write, Too! blog chain post (and I almost forgot!). This month’s prompt was: “What works of fiction have taught you by example, and what did they teach you?” In a way, this is a very difficult and very simple question to answer, and I don’t know how much I’m … Continue reading TCWT: By the Examples of Books

Book Blogger Tag

I did a very similar one of these recently, so if you read that, you’ll probably notice repeats, sorry. Nevillegirl tagged me in the Book Blogger tag, so I’m going to answer these questions. 🙂 Thanks! Which book did you recently not finish?

TCWT: WTCB has a Script and Other Ex-Libris Problems

I guess I started my original writing career as a script-writer. In one of those "where do you think you're going to be in ten years? Dream job, something you'd like to do, and the probable alternative" (one wonders if this is a healthy thing to ask eleven-year-olds), I listed 'playwrite' as one job in the … Continue reading TCWT: WTCB has a Script and Other Ex-Libris Problems

From the Log of the Social Sec: Quidditch is Getting Serious

Or: how Quidditch tournaments are actually dangerous I know I talk a lot about how fun Quidditch is, but, like any sport, it’s not without its injuries. Rough game, Quidditch. Brutal, but no one's died in years. Someone will vanish occasionally, but they'll turn up in a month or two! Okay, not that bad, Weaselys, … Continue reading From the Log of the Social Sec: Quidditch is Getting Serious
