Last week I made the quick train trip home for 3 days in between work. My mum got three days off too so we made plans to do and see as much as possible! On Tuesday we ate breakfast at home and made plans to head over to Beverly, a nearby East Riding of Yorkshire… Continue reading Home Is Where The Art Is: A Three Day Break In My Hometown, Hull.
Its October... that means spooky times. A few months ago I started a blog series/project called 'Speaking Above The Torch'. Now, I'm sending out this to ask for a favour: have a spooky/weird/uncanny/generally odd story? It can either be something that happened to you directly or it can be your aunts ghost story she tells… Continue reading Send me your spooks: Speaking Above The Torch.
Fall Away. The world is floating by once again, in hues of warming orange and yellow. I watch the trees turb, conkers fall, like polished jeweks, hidden treasure in amongs the leaf laden ground. It's quiet now, for that small snapshot in our year. Before the bustle of Christmas. Walk by the river. Be near… Continue reading Writing on Wednesdays #12
Bote: German for Messenger. I woke early one morning, sprung out of sleep by something unknown. My bedroom was freezing cold, like a window had been left open all day and into the night, the cold winter air filling the room like smoke. But, the window was closed and had been all day.

The Odyssey floats like a cloud, breathing out cold gusts every so often, her windows are eyes, looking onto… Continue reading Writing on Wednesdays #10: When I visited My First Birthday.
This week I thought I'd talk a little bit about that other thing I kind of do but am a little terrible at keeping up: writing a novel. Just recently Patrick Ness - one of my favourite writers - tweeted (you should 100% follow him) saying that he never writes more that 1500 words a… Continue reading (A Late) Writing On Wednesdays #9: An Attempted Novelist.
I mentioned in my apology post from Thursday, I have recently moved! After a series of unplanned and unforseen events unfolded 2/3 months ago, myself and my boyfriend, Jordan ended up looking for a place for just the two of us. It was all very stressful at first and we only had a month to… Continue reading Writing on Wednesdays # 8: New House, New Leaf and All That Jazz.
EMMA. For the second installment of this blog post series I spent an afternoon chatting, laughing, catching up and sharing spooky stories with someone who had an equally weird childhood as my own, my friend, Emma. The first post for this series focused on Annie, who's opinions are very different and undecided, Emma, however is,… Continue reading Speaking Above The Torch #2
