An Emotional Rollercoaster of rejoicing and…. feeling pensive (or should that be ‘pensieve?’)

Drama and Music, Writing0 Comment on An Emotional Rollercoaster of rejoicing and…. feeling pensive (or should that be ‘pensieve?’)

I wasn’t going to write a new post tonight – given my nervousness from the day – but now I’ve calmed down, I’m ready to supply my thoughts. This morning, I had an interview for an ABA Tutor (Applied Behaviour Analysis) in an autistic primary and secondary school, and throughout the afternoon, I was certain […]

Don’t be bashful about bright, bonkers colours! Bring them to your style…. with a smile! :)

Style0 Comment on Don’t be bashful about bright, bonkers colours! Bring them to your style…. with a smile! :)

Adding colour to your wardrobe is often quite tricky. Maybe there have been a few raised eyebrows, so you’re unsure if it’s right for you, or perhaps you just feel that you won’t do any of the clothes justice. Ignore the negativity. Embrace brightness. It’s not a bad thing. It brings the confidence you need […]

Doodles, My Novel0 Comment on Mini profiles on characters! (First up, Will Worthington)

Each week, I am going to be showing you glimpses of the characters from my upper middle grade novel, ‘Will Worthington and The Black Rainbow.’ It’s been a nearly-eleven year road to publication, but, I will get there. In the meantime? It’s all about my protagonist. 13-year-old Will Worthington lost his parents in a ski […]

Want to fit in with the locals of Emmerdale Village? Don’t turn away, here’s some lingo today!

Drama and Music2 Comments on Want to fit in with the locals of Emmerdale Village? Don’t turn away, here’s some lingo today!

Through watching ‘Emmerdale’ clips for over six hours, (sad as that is) I’ve come to learn that there are various ways of saying things around the village. After all, you have to spruce up your language if you want to shop at David’s, have a coffee at Bob and Brenda’s, or enjoy a lazy afternoon […]

When The Ducks Have Skillets, Apologies, ‘Shillets’…. and other Wacky Windows into My Lucid World!

Writing0 Comment on When The Ducks Have Skillets, Apologies, ‘Shillets’…. and other Wacky Windows into My Lucid World!

I haven’t been lucid properly for a while. It was only after I had been talking about the subject recently that things have gradually started happening again. Boy, am I over the moon. The way I always describe lucidity? It’s like going to the movies, without buying a ticket, and you’re the star. Fun Fact: […]

Writing0 Comment on The Magic of Lucid Dreaming: How To Control Your Dreams, And Make The Most Of Them….

Introduction Ever wanted to meet God, ride on a Hippogriff’s back, run with Robin Hood or ask William Shakespeare what he thinks about modern poetry? Well, believe it or not there is a way and that is something I am going to discuss tonight. Firstly, it is very rare to be a natural Lucid dreamer (achieve […]

The Poetry Files Begins With… ‘Fairytale’

Writing0 Comment on The Poetry Files Begins With… ‘Fairytale’

Unexpected. Expected. Always there. Walking dream in daylight, kissing my shoulders, pulling me close. Dancing spirits, cocooned hearts. At night, I’m a playful shadow, lost in the moonlit maze. This time, it doesn’t matter. I’m happy to be here. With you. I’ll hide around, jump-scare, lie under this canopy of stars. We’ll laugh and dance […]

Harry Potter: The final spell, and how, with one wave of his wand, the boy wizard transfigured my life (Written 2010)

Writing0 Comment on Harry Potter: The final spell, and how, with one wave of his wand, the boy wizard transfigured my life (Written 2010)

Unlike most, I used to despise the mere mention of Harry Potter. Hard to imagine now, but back when I knew nothing about it, I was filled with disgust and revulsion towards the boy wizard. In the school corridors, if anyone whispered the name, I shuddered! Thinking about this now, I can’t believe I actually […]

My Bad Boy of Emmerdale: Why do I love Robert Sugden?

Drama and Music, Writing0 Comment on My Bad Boy of Emmerdale: Why do I love Robert Sugden?

Robert Sugden…. The Schemer. The Manipulator. The Accidental-Killer. A guy with no limits, and sometimes (it appears) no conscience. He’s been beaten up, shot, threatened, and even left for dead, after his step son deliberately tried to poison him with carbon monoxide…. That handsome face has been punched so many times it’s hard to keep […]
