New Release: Where the Weird Things Are Vol. 1

Hi everyone! I’ve had a very stressful couple of months but we’re coming out of that now, and I have an announcement! My short story “Sign Me Up” is featured in Deadset Press’s new anthology, Where The Weird Things Are Volume 1. It features a public servant in a job she hates on a dangerousContinue reading “New Release: Where the Weird Things Are Vol. 1”

The One With the End of the Year Summing Up

I remember saying at the end of 2020 that people were putting a helluva a lot of pressure on 2021 to be ~better~ than 2020. I think it’s pretty safe to say that 2021 did not deliver on that front, and I don’t think anyone is harbouring any of the same illusions about 2022. InContinue reading “The One With the End of the Year Summing Up”

2021 Goals Midpoint Check-in

This was supposed to be my quarterly check-in. I found it in my drafts folder today. Oops! I am usually a stickler for having these types of posts go up on the last day of the period they refer to or the first day of the following period, but here we are. 😂 This yearContinue reading “2021 Goals Midpoint Check-in”

#FlashFiction – “Not the Last”

Today my lovely friends at Swell Publications posted the following writing prompt on their Facebook page: “If you only had one day to live, what would you do with your time? I can’t decide whether to save the world from impending doom or go get froyo.” My story is not so much a “one dayContinue reading “#FlashFiction – “Not the Last””

2020 Writing Goals – October Check-in

At the start of this year, some writer friends and I chose a word as the theme for the coming 12 months. Mine was LEARN. I’ve definitely been learning. And now we’re on the downhill run towards the end of the year. In some ways, it feels like the months have dragged on beyond belief, andContinue reading “2020 Writing Goals – October Check-in”

Snippet er… Sunday? – September 27, 2020

Yes, I’m leaving the graphic up even though it has the wrong day on it. Soon I’ll get back to regular Saturday posts. 😂 I got some lovely responses to my flash fiction on Wednesday, so thank you for that! Apart from flash fiction, I’ve spent the last week getting back into my edits andContinue reading “Snippet er… Sunday? – September 27, 2020”

Snippet Saturday – August 29, 2020

Hi everyone! I know it’s been a month since I last updated here. I thought for a while that I was going to get back to my novel, but then I spent several weeks thinking about that and not having the energy to do anything about it. I had thought if I were only toContinue reading “Snippet Saturday – August 29, 2020”

Snippet Saturday – July 11, 2020

Hello everyone! I hope this week has treated you well. The last few weeks I’ve been stressing about a short story competition. Protip: don’t enter a competition where you have to pay the sign-up fee before you find out the theme. It wasn’t a massive sign-up fee and I could have just let it go,Continue reading “Snippet Saturday – July 11, 2020”
