Bah Bye Writing 101: Day 20 – The Future

Writing 101 – Day 20 (Friday 2nd October 2015) – The future Okay so I skipped out on half the Writing 101 prompts in this series because I’m a bad and lazy person. It did get me writing on the reg though so I can’t say it’s been a waste of time, and it has had me snarking a lot with Jill (seriously, some of the … Read More Bah Bye Writing 101: Day 20 – The Future

Writing 101: Day 10 – Update Your Readers

Writing 101 – Day 10 (Friday 18th September 2015) – Update your readers over a cup of coffee I was going to write a long thing about how boring my life is in comparison to my friends’ who all go on dates, have scandals and generally live the dream any which way they fucking like (in the good way) and then I stopped myself. I … Read More Writing 101: Day 10 – Update Your Readers

Writing 101: Day 9 – Reinvent the Letter Format

Writing 101 – Day 9 (Thursday 17th September 2015) – Reinvent the letter format I’m reinventing nothing this morning. But I will do the assignment. Dear Neighbour, I’m sorry you saw me naked. Actually. No. You’re welcome. Love from 1A Heeeeeeee!

Writing 101: Day 8 – In Lieu of Today’s Assignment

I couldn’t be arsed with today’s Writing 101 assignment (something about expanding on comments). I stayed off work because I felt shitty and all I really wanted to do was watch Monsters University and loll about in my pants, wishing there was someone around to douse me in sympathy. So sorry about that. Instead I give you this image: How true is it though? … Read More Writing 101: Day 8 – In Lieu of Today’s Assignment

Writing 101: Day 7 – Hook ’em with a Quote

Writing 101 – Day 7 (Tuesday 15th September 2015) – Hook ’em with a quote Today’s assignment is pretty cool. Big fan of the written quote. But what to use and why? That is the question. My first instinct was to use this one: “Comparison is the death of joy.” ~ Mark Twain I like this quote because it’s so true, and I drop it … Read More Writing 101: Day 7 – Hook ’em with a Quote

Writing 101: Day 6 – The Space to Write

Writing 101 – Day 6 (Monday 14th September 2015) – The space to write I have terrible writing habits. There’s no cute corner desk with Cath Kidston stationery and a pretty flamingo shaped lamp to cast me in the best possible light, I’m afraid. I write on my lap with my laptop while I’m watching TV, and I usually have a cup of tea resting … Read More Writing 101: Day 6 – The Space to Write

Writing 101: Day 5 – Let Social Media Inspire You

Writing 101 – Day 5 (Friday 11th September 2015) – Let social media inspire you  I’m not doing today’s assignment because frankly, I haven’t the time nor the inclination. It’s a bad attitude to have perhaps, but *shrug*. I’ve chosen instead to post a picture of some local graffiti that I love, that I have shared on social media. There is a tenuous link there somewhere and … Read More Writing 101: Day 5 – Let Social Media Inspire You

Writing 101: Day 4 – A Story in a Single Image

Writing 101 – Day 4 (Thursday 10th September 2015) – A story in a single image Don’t tell me what to do, WordPress! Kidding. Obviously WordPress has been given free reign to boss me around as it sees fit for the next four weeks. However, I didn’t like any of the pictures showcased in the assignment so I chose my own. What of it? I … Read More Writing 101: Day 4 – A Story in a Single Image

Writing 101: Day 3 – One Word Inspiration

Writing 101 – Day 3 (Wednesday 9th September 2015) – One word inspiration Today I am so loosely basing my post on this Writing 101 assignment that you could almost say I haven’t really done it at all. But I’m hoping it will all come together in the end. Anyway, as so often is my defense, this is my blog and I’ll go off on a … Read More Writing 101: Day 3 – One Word Inspiration

Writing 101: Days 1 & 2 – I Write Because… and Write a List

I decided to sign up for Writing 101 because Jillian mentioned she would be doing it and I’m a dreadful copy cat. I must admit that I thought I’d already done this series of prompts before and not handled it very well time wise, but looking back and into my own archive, it looks as though that was Writing 201 (Poetry addition). So this … Read More Writing 101: Days 1 & 2 – I Write Because… and Write a List
