Alphabet Challenge

Another Tuesday Group challenge: Write a piece using at least one word starting with each letter of the alphabet. The challenge must not be visible, the words must be used in such a way that the casual reader does not notice they are reading a challenge piece. Clear water stretching out, as far as I … Continue reading Alphabet Challenge

I’m In Trouble

My evil family is picking on me. For no apparent reason. I know I have told you that Gavin is really nice and rarely gets mad. I may have pushed it a little. I may have hundreds of D&D figures. I may have close to 100 sets of D&D dice. I may have over 700 … Continue reading I’m In Trouble

My Daughter Asked My Opinion.

My eldest child asked for a meeting. My husband told me it was about cosplay so I prepared the following speech for her. Cosplay is wrong. Cosplay involves wearing costumes and pretending to be someone else. Pretending is lying and lying along with all other forms of deception is evil. Take, for a prime example, … Continue reading My Daughter Asked My Opinion.

The Difference

Hello folks, another exercise for my writing group; find links between 2 disparate things and then write something comedic. Not an original idea of mine, a long time comedy staple. But after all its important to remember the classics. Guess which two I was writing about: It’s Little Eddie’s first day. The big car drops … Continue reading The Difference

Confusing Critic

Recently my mother said something unexpected, "You should do stand up comedy." My ego soared but then something occurred, "But you don't like my comedy." In fact once, I may have mentioned this before, I read her a monologue that I had written for an open mike thing and she got really grumpy and complained … Continue reading Confusing Critic

I Writied A Thing

Tuesday Writer's club, you know the sad shadow of my time in KSP (cursed be that place), when Alex, Tabby, Charlie and I sit at the dining room table and pretend we can still pretend to learn to write. A really nice guy joins us.  Anyway today we did an exercise in honour of Troglet … Continue reading I Writied A Thing

Worthy Writing

Today I am going to write something profound. A piece so gloriously literary that it will provide the backbone of all future advanced classes on literature. a PIECE SO PRECISE IN ITS INSIGHT THAT NO FUTURE PUBLICATION OR DISCUSSION IN ANY AND ALL AREAS OF PSYCHOLOGY, WELLNESS OR EDUCATION WILL CONTAIN REFERENCE TO THIS WORK … Continue reading Worthy Writing

Day 2

Hi, I've been reading other people's blogs. This was even harder than writing a post. Why? Because I am crazy and was terrified that bad things had happened in my absence. But if I didn't know about it it hadn't really happened and everything will be fine. Hey, get off my back I don't control … Continue reading Day 2

It’s A Puzzle

I will never understand people. Okay so I have in my hermit state developed an interest in puzzles. It is not an obsession, it kind of can’t be because I can’t stay interested for too long before the frustration builds and the reasons are becoming clear. Puzzles were created by people for people. Giant flaw, … Continue reading It’s A Puzzle

I Think I Can Write a Script.

Actually I don't. I joined a Scriptwriting writing group because the guy running it wasn't comfortable with the admin, and he was too important to lose. Once a month and some tips to hand onto my husband (scriptwriting was an early aspiration) and my drama obsessed offspring. But no it was a full on scriptwriting … Continue reading I Think I Can Write a Script.
