Don’t you just fucking love it when you’re trying to focus on the story you’re writing when suddenly another idea pops into your head and that’s all you can think about? Yeah, me neither. But I’m used to these spontaneous bursts of inspiration so just kinda go with it. My latest idea has a working […]

Who here honestly doesn’t love spam comments? Oh, everyone? Well, I’m doing this anyway. To celebrate the fact I am getting more and more spam comments on my posts, I thought I would actually dignify some with a response. Just the shorter and/or more bizarre ones mind, not the essays or those with a thousand […]

I’m actually feeling properly inspired to write! This doesn’t happen often. I mean, I’ll write poems fairly regularly but I can churn those out pretty quick. It’s the story writing I struggle with. But the one I’m writing now, Whispers, isn’t boring me yet. I’ve published the first two mini chapters on here, and actually […]

Two years? It’s weird to think it’s been two years. In one way it feels like less time than that. Yet at the same time so much has happened since I started on here that it two years just doesn’t seem long enough. Two years it is though. After all the Ups, Downs and Deviations […]

“Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it’s much more serious than that.” – Bill Shankly I never thought I would be one of those football fans. I would look at the images of supporters in the stands following relegation or a heavy defeat, tears rolling down their […]

The story behind my poem, Am I Wrong? Since the beginning of 2017 I have been using Meetup as a means of socialising and such. For those who don’t know, it’s a website/app where people create groups revolving around particular interests, activities, character traits, etc. which others join and everybody meets up and (maybe) makes […]

I don’t swim. I can swim, I just don’t. Some people like to tell me that’s bullshit. “How do you know you can swim, if you never go swimming?” “Just because you swam before, doesn’t mean you still can.” These people tend to be the kind that Eleven from Stranger Things would call ‘mouth-breathers.’ I […]

One of the things I have been working towards this year is my second published work. It consist, rather simply, of all poetry and verse I write throughout 2018. I haven’t set myself any kind of challenge to write every day, so this won’t be one of those¬†poem a day things. But it should offer […]

Questions without answers are frustrating. Answers without questions are… well, I’m not sure what they are. Random statements, I guess. Anyway, I was nominated for one of the various awards here on WordPress, which I declined for reasons you can read (if interested) here. I decided though to partake a little and answer the questions […]

I tend to be regarded as something of a heathen by arty people. I’m not a fan of popular art. I can appreciate the talent of the artist, but I don’t derive any pleasure from looking at their drawings, paintings, sketches, etc.. When asked for my opinion, I will state, simply, “I don’t like it.” […]
