Coming round again

Posted January 4th, 2009 by Rachel

…New Year’s revolutions resolutions, that is. I don’t know what happened to the last year, but it disappeared far too damned quickly for my liking, but here we are anyway, the start of a new year, and it’s that time of year when we make lists of all the things we’re going to do, and [...]

Word of the day: fettle

Posted September 30th, 2008 by Rachel

Okay, so I can’t think of anything new or exciting to post today (I’ve not stabbed myself with any more sharp objects recently ), so I’m introducing a new feature – it’s called “Word of the Day”, and is based on the word of the day on dictionary.com, and today’s word is…“fettle.” fettle \FET-l\, noun: [...]

Words, words, and more words

Posted April 10th, 2008 by Bliss

The topic of the week at one of my favourite web haunts, an online forum (a neat idea to get folks talking, and one Rachel’s considering borrowing for her forum), is whether the very detailed descriptions of the natural environment in a particular piece of literature is needed, whether it’s superfluous, or whether it’s just [...]

Posted April 2nd, 2008 by Bliss

Okay, so “WTF has eBay got to do with the creative process?”, you’re wondering. Good question! What did we do before eBay came along?

Gatecrashers inside my head

Posted March 30th, 2008 by Bliss

My apologies for the recent absence of Rachel, but for now you’re stuck with me, Bliss, on account of Rachel’s brain having taken an unscheduled vacation. It’s a little difficult to tell the difference sometimes… Anyhow, here I am, at long last ready to re-commence work on “Fallen Angel”, and what happens? A couple of [...]

Writing the wrongs

Posted March 7th, 2008 by Bliss

It’s taken some time, but I’ve finally figured out where the problem is, or rather, where the problems are, with Fallen Angel. It’s fifteen years since the inception of Fallen Angel – fifteen years! I can hardly believe it sometimes. Fifteen years and I’m still only up to Chapter 7 and currently on re-draft #4. [...]

People live inside my head

Posted February 17th, 2008 by Rachel

People live inside my head. No, seriously, they do! Come back! Don’t back away from the keyboard as though I’m some crazy woman! (though I probably am) For as long as I can remember I’ve had the urge to write. When I was nine, my headteacher at junior school, Mr Keating, had an accident. He [...]
