Beautiful People: H’s Cathy

*gasp* What is this, an actual Beautiful People post on my blog in 2016? I know, I’ve been as lax in keeping up with the writing tag as a printer sans ink, partly because I’ve not tackled any new big novels for a while and instead have been trying to focus on the importance of … Continue reading Beautiful People: H’s Cathy

The Lady in Grey

I recently came across an old poem of mine (circa 2011) and, this being a writing blog in heart, thought it worth posting here. Enjoy! Ice-lady of the wood, Smoke for hair and space for eyes, Grown out of contradiction, Taught not to love, only disguise. She whispers words Only witches can see, Burning babies’ … Continue reading The Lady in Grey

Photo of the Week: Panels

Unfortunately, not much on the photo stakes this week, as I haven't had much of a chance around my work to find subjects for photography.

It's kind of creepy. Last month, The Scribblers creative writing society launched … Continue reading My life revolves around backseat driving and half-hearted love letters

Quick Takes Friday About Gaining Dual POV, Generating Poetry and Glueing Rhinestones

Join me and the other Catholic bloggers over at ConversionDiary for our weekly Quick Takes summaries. ~1~ Firstly, in case you missed it, yesterday was my 500th post here, so I did some summing up of the past 2.5 years I’ve been working. I can’t really add anything more to that other than the hope … Continue reading Quick Takes Friday About Gaining Dual POV, Generating Poetry and Glueing Rhinestones

‘The Relationship’

I wrote this poem on Wednesday when this photo I took the same day inspired me. Your sweat and the last refrain of melody and the closing thorn, It pierced my heart before I'd even known How to spell out your amour. In these moments where I curse and scrawl your words over and again, … Continue reading ‘The Relationship’
