This writing course has stirred up an old familiar longing, to head back into academia. Namely A Creative Writing MA. Having been exposed to new writing and given assignments I am eager for more. I just received feedback for the short piece Home. After a few butterflies I opened the email. It was a pleasant … Continue reading A Masters?
Today I have been working on a piece to send into the course co-ordinator, the theme being home, and what it means. As soon as I got out of my own head the words flowed freely. Home has been intangible for me growing up. Split between houses, are they both home or neither? Can a … Continue reading Home
Poorly poorly day. I've been dopey the past few days but managed to get a bit of writing done. The workshop was excellent on Wednesday, I don't have the brain power to write much about it now. In fact I think it is time for a nap. Should I have even posted anything today? Maybe … Continue reading Teeny Tiny Post
Well it certainly has been an industrious day. Lot's of writing and organising. So much so that my poor little brain has all but ran out of steam. There is only one scene left of my short story to finish before I begin editing; a spot of free writing fleshed out a character in my … Continue reading Busy Writing Day
On Saturday I took my first step back into the writing world with a Micro Writer's retreat from Out on the Page. Just a small group taking time out of the week to get some writing done, all online of course. it was wonderful meeting fellow writers and learning what others are up to. I … Continue reading Spooky Tales
Hi there, I'm bi, or pan, or both? To be perfectly honest I'm still struggling to differentiate the two. I find myself looking up the difference every couple of months just to make sure. There seems to be a bit of confusion around the Bi in Bisexuality, some thinking it stands two genders and excludes … Continue reading Bisexuality Day!
After feeling the worst i had in some time yesterday, today I appear to have turned a corner. I have been remarkably happier and dare I say, productive. I booked myself into a writing course, and spent an hour or so working on my novel. It's just a quick post for today as it's coming … Continue reading Productive?
Today I woke up with and felt rested for the first time since reducing my sertraline dose. Dusting off the ring-fit I even managed a good fifteen minutes of exercise. Two weeks of exhaustion, heightened anxiety, brain fog, headaches, a funny tummy and visual disturbances and I might be coming out the other side. And … Continue reading Pushing Through The Fog
I believe I am on my fifth day of reducing my sertraline dose. The main side effects have been headaches, fatigue nausea and bouts of irritability. All in all not as bad as I thought it would be as the symptoms don't last long. It's worst at night, I suppose because that's the longest time … Continue reading Withdrawal
Writing has not been happening recently, I'm reducing my sertraline (anti-depressant) dose so giving myself a bit of a break for most things. Instead I've been doing a few sketches of my protagonist which has been fun. Creating outfits has helped with character development and world building. I shan't be talking about Me and White … Continue reading Taking It Easy
