I think I've had literally almost the perfect day. Morning started off with taking my little sister to an event she is going to, which happened with surprisingly little fuss considering I was the 'navigator' (never leave me in charge of a RAC route planner!) Next up, a trip to Beamish with family and then… Continue reading A Day in the Life (June 27th 2016)
Excuse the maudlin title, I'm still upset about the EU Referendum result. Good thing my Twitter is currently locked behind some pretty strong privacy settings or you might just find yourself bogged down in my feelings about that. There's moving out of my student house this week too, on Friday, which feels much longer ago… Continue reading Beginnings and Endings
Without going into masses of details... Exam results and the shakiness of my hands as I sat in my student bedroom with the curtains open staring at a computer screen waiting for the system clock to tick to 11am. Listening to Nickelback as I've got a weird addiction to Rockstar the last few weeks, distractions. Logging on.… Continue reading I Did It!
I've been absent a while, what with visits home and massive dissertation pre-occupation, creative writing socials and the milieu of different things that become massive once exams no longer loom.

In the meantime, let's get my creative head… Continue reading A Day in the Life (June 15th – 16th 2016)
It's very hot here at the moment, sun is shining, which just in a way serves to make me a little frustrated that I'm in Durham where I have no deckchair or sun lounger, rather than somewhere that might have one of those things. Today I found to someone I'd love to have as my dissertation,… Continue reading A Day in the Writing Life (June 6th 2016)
T o m o r r o w i s D i s s e r t a t i o n d a y. EEP. What do you mean, I hear you ask? Well, my uni has a 'dissertations fair' where you get to speak to potential supervisors. It's quite a stressful idea to… Continue reading A Day in the Writing Life (June 5th 2016)
Hello! I've just set up my noticeboard with the scene markers I'll be using to plan my next novel project. I don't usually plan and it's worked out badly once before when I've tried, but I'd like to have a first draft that once I'm done I can easily work out how to make… Continue reading A Day in the Writing Life Sort-Of (June 4th 2016)
Today's picture is a little bit different. It's a picture of my bedroom door back home during the revision period, with self-adhesive Post It notes taking up every inch of available space at reading height. Handwritten, no less. While I won't be dwelling here on the difficulties of university exams, I thought it a good… Continue reading A Day in the Writing Life (June 2nd 2016)
