  • The Ninth Wave

    The Ninth Wave

    There’s the Advert out of the way, and now there is this almost overriding desire to run away. I knew it was coming, but we’re here now, so no avoiding it. It’s time to lean into the life I spent this long working towards and am now not quite sure is wanted any more, because […]

  • Lost and Found

    Lost and Found

    I will look back on this week, in a year’s time, knowing how important it was for everything I became. A body is moving into shape. The requirement to fuel properly has become massively important. I can’t send things away to people and assume automatic failure any more. Most importantly of all, my voice is […]

  • The Other Side

    The Other Side

    I should have some professional news at the end of September. For now, I am forcing myself to rearrange my lifestyle. This is not without its stresses and strains, and the emergent realization that, at almost 56, remaining happy long term really isn’t sustainable. When I menstruated, the depression was magnitudes worse than it is […]

  • Ordinary World

    Ordinary World

    It took me a while to figure something out yesterday. I’ve been doing this for a LONG time now, just writing and commenting and building a body of work. The timing of this is not necessarily opportune or planned either, that must also be stated. You don’t make other people notice or comment. They do […]

  • This is the Sea

    This is the Sea

    Normally, I’d tweet the following. Today, I am going to see who comes, looking. Yesterday, I had my first session with a Mentor. It was, to be fair, exactly as I expected it would be. The pivot I was handed on a piece of work I knew full well wasn’t good enough to succeed has, […]

  • One Week

    One Week

    Not actually gone yet. When he has, there will probably be a beer. What a twat he remains, and I do realize this probably royally fucks my chance of being published in certain places ever again. This is my I do Not Give a Fuck Face.

  • Tusk

    Tusk

    Right now, a lot of what I am doing feels as if I am flailing around in the dark with absolutely no lights. It is hard when everyone else around you appears to be notionally doing better, however untrue this may actually appear to be. I know how all the motivational stuff works, how it’s […]

  • The End is the Beginning is the End

    The End is the Beginning is the End

    The smart amongst you will know this was written after the fact, when I was home, because there was simply not the brain space that existed to properly process at the time. If truth be told, there is still not the space to do that. I’m continuing to break it down and manage the changes […]

  • Yesterday’s Men

    Yesterday’s Men

    Almost Friday. Probably ought to sort out some guerilla marketing…

  • The Test

    The Test

    I had forgotten how good the poems were that I submitted for this Zine. However, that pales into insignificance when placed beside being in the same publication of someone’s work who I totally adore. That’s the moment you can never plan. They are precious. This is significant progress.
