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

My Kiddie Wink Writied a Thing Too

Remember the exercise I did yesterday. Remember I said Alex did the exercise too. I said Tabby wrote something, but that's still basically irrelevant because she still won't let me read it. Alex is letting me post her work. Too much explainie, read this... I Writied A Thing Then read this : The Fenir laughed as … Continue reading My Kiddie Wink Writied a Thing Too

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

Welcome to Mothers Day part 2

For those of you that are following my blogs daily, ha ha, yesterday's excuse will hopefully be published tomorrow. This is the second part of a something that had an explanation blog first.

Welcome to Mothers Day part 1

Why am I subjecting you to a repeat of this story? This is the first story I wrote as an adult. I found I could write while making notes for a story about Mothers Day while living it (it was intended just to help me ignore the kids). This whimsical little story then became the … Continue reading Welcome to Mothers Day part 1

Hi

Hello, I'm not saying where I've been.   It's depressing, boring and a barrier to me re-starting. Suffice it to say no where, I have been at home. All the pets are fine, except one psychotic fish who hates me,   who is actually quite healthy so that description is inaccurate. I'll try again. All … Continue reading Hi

KSP Exercise – POV

I may have been ignoring my blog but I've still been facilitating at KSP Writers' Centre.  Admittedly mostly Tabby and Alex but I believe technically there are considered people.  And they do pay, actually I pay.  That's right I pay to boss about my own kids.  Actually thinking about it, they listen to me; money … Continue reading KSP Exercise – POV

Anubis, Not the Famous One, the Cuddly One.

As promised pictures of the newest Holt. Thursday we went to Cat Haven (Cat Shelter) to look for a kitten.  I know before I have sworn off rescue pets because of the complicated household make up that the poor animal will have to adjust to.  Some years ago we adopted a beautiful Ragdoll X Freddy … Continue reading Anubis, Not the Famous One, the Cuddly One.

OMG, GTH With Your PDA.

I was in the shower this morning thinking. Now this is unusual, thinking anywhere, even the shower. It was probably because I didn't have my usual audience. My regulars: Orion was mad because I took him out of the shower before I turned on the water. I'm not mean I had to let the hot … Continue reading OMG, GTH With Your PDA.
