    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 […]

    19th Nervous Breakdown

    Okay, do what the Tweet says.

  • Easy

    Easy

    Something magical happened at the Gym this morning. For the first time, I saw the person I want to be staring back at me from mirrors that, for a long time, have been massively intimidating. My ankle is still painful, but I jogged on it for nearly 10 minutes without issue, which tells me that […]

    River

    The last few days have been a struggle, but here I am at the end of a day when everything got done, and my authentic voice survives intact. That’s what matters most, in the end, to survive and thrive regardless. There’s a lot to do this week as well, and I need to keep on […]

  • Duet

    Duet

    To prepare myself for going away, I’m writing this on my iPad. The WP app has always been notoriously flaky, and as it took three goes to load this after logging in, it is reassuring to see not much has changed in the five or so years since I did this last. I wrote two […]

  • A new Day at Midnight

    A new Day at Midnight

    It is taking a fair bit of time to adjust to my new routine. A lot has been altered, if truth be told: it is not just writing and creation. Exercise has been given a different focus. That’s been a bit of a game changer. Oh yeah, and after what’s probably been almost a decade, […]

  • Downtown Lights

    Downtown Lights

    Tomorrow, I read a poem in a Book Launch for the first time. It’s not just me, there’s nearly 30 other people involved in this, and my single poem is, as are all the others, about being neurodivergent. I’m still no further forward with a diagnosis with my Doctor, and it has been almost a […]

  • Believe

    Believe

    For the last three weeks I’ve been working on a project which is (almost) put to rest now, there’s just the small matter of subtitling it and checking I’ve not fucked anything up terribly. It’s the next step forward in my poetry journey, too. A proper narrative. Actors, and locations. Big undertaking with only me […]

  • Making Plans for Nigel

    Making Plans for Nigel

    There is a LOT on at the moment and juggling all that I have to do with the time available in which to do so… the stress is manifesting as it always does non my body. There are boils, and skin rashes, and generally this is pushing out bad energy through my skin. Each time […]

  • Waiting for the Great Leap Forwards

    December was simultaneously horrendous and acceptable. I could go into a lot of unnecessary detail, but the basic upshot from it all is that I’ve been the most productive in my entire life as a result. It all comes from making an hour a day free every morning to write and nothing else. The habit […]
