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 […]

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 […]

My Novel, Writing0 Comment on The Positivity Post, filled with Potter, Pitches, and Present-unpacking!

It is the yearly ‘Golden Egg’ ball on the 31st January… and I have just entered the pitch competition. Last time, I didn’t get through. This time will probably be the same, but – as with anything you care about – the point is that I try. I’m not going to post it here, unless […]

Drama and Music, My Novel, Writing0 Comment on Reflections and Resolutions, the Rachel E. Brooker Way!

Forgive the lateness of this post, but I was ill yesterday with a terrible headache; and even stopped watching my ‘Emmerdale’ clips because of it. That’s when you know I feel bad! Anyway, here are my reflections on 2019…. It was a year of self-discovery, really. I quit my barista job, deciding that the next […]

New Year 2020 means….. a new room! Naturally…..

Writing0 Comment on New Year 2020 means….. a new room! Naturally…..

I don’t know about you, but when I hit the 31st December, it’s like my mind automatically goes, “Soon, or now, you must fix your room again, properly. I’m talking the whole works, cleaning, dusting, culling, you name it.” Now? It’s the 2nd of January, and I’ve already managed to finish about 5 percent of […]

September 2007 ….. Day One in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Euphoria, that’s all I remember feeling. Pure euphoria.  Six oc’lock me and Mum rose from our beds, and then half an hour later- There I was, sat in a car on my way to filming Harry Potter.  The clouds were grey and dull, […]
