I thought I’d share a couple of articles I’ve been reading lately. Exploring the internet is one of the only things that gets me through my working day if I’m honest – that and my lovely work friends – and these are the ones that have caught my attention this week. Yes, Weekly Digest is back! How Tony Scott Gave ‘True Romance’ Its Happily … Read More Weekly Digest: Five Articles
‘Amazing April’ hasn’t exactly started with a bang. I just haven’t had the adequate oompf to even get it started. I’ve been feeling pretty run down this week and I’ve been going to bed at a ridiculously early hour most nights to try and combat that. Woe is me, huh? This is me being all period-y and needy – nobody needs to hear it. … Read More PRO-crastination
“Everybody does have a book in them, but in most cases that’s where it should stay.” ~ Christopher Hitchens There’s an old adage that suggests that every person has at least one book ‘in them’. I don’t know if this is true but I often think about whether or not I might be someone who does. My gut tells me no, absolutely not, that … Read More Write the Book
Blogging has been sparse since the wonderful #blogtober wrapped up and I don’t really like that, so I’m setting myself some writing goals for the next couple of months. November is half done of course so I’ve been slack as usual but it’s never too late to pull it together. I’ve got plans for #blogmas too, my own take on bloggers fave #vlogmas.
Autumn is my own version of Spring and when the days are bright and crisp, I’m inspired. I thought I’d let you in on one of my favourite ongoing projects and how my partner and I have been working to streamline everything for our brand new season. I’m talking about the podcast I co-host with my friend James – it’s called All Out of … Read More Fall Projects
I’ve got some annual leave this week. While I’ve made a few plans – dinner with a friend, cinema, tattoo on Thursday – let’s not pretend I’m not spending the majority of it on the sofa with The Handmaid’s Tale and various films, while my tea kettle works over time. My intention is to also blog as much as I can because it’s one … Read More Drafts
I’ve started writing for my work blog and the results have been interesting. I’ve had some really genuine and lovely feedback from people I don’t know very well (as well as close colleagues and friends) – and I’ve had more than a couple of moments of pure and utter anxiety about whether I’ve said too much. I never want to hide who I am, … Read More Work Blogging Across the Universe
People can be really huffy about resolutions and I get it when we’re bombarded as soon as Boxing Day is over with spam emails from Weight Watchers and gym groups. But I kind of like them myself. I feel like I’m quite a pro-active kind of chap when I want to be and I respond well to being held accountable, even if it’s just to an old … Read More Goals: Redux
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 (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 (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!
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
