    Getting Better

    Remember I said this place used to be the daily practice and now it isn’t? Well here I am, three days after my last post. I had a poetry ‘gig’ yesterday that went very well indeed, which will turn into a regular occurrence. A virtual ‘open mic’ is exactly what reality demands at present, and […]

  • Mirrorball


    There will be a moment, not long from now, when I rationalise my personal timeline. That’s nothing to do with social media followers either: this is the task of writing down notable moments in my existence to check the voracity of events. The stuff I can remember is VERY clear, almost technicolour in its brilliance. […]

  • Go Up

    Go Up

    I’m quite excited this morning. A Kickstarter which I backed nearly two years ago will arrive (according to UPS) on Friday. This piece of equipment delivers the end to a story which began on my birthday in 2018. No, really, the date on the video below is October 23rd, 2018. It is a story about […]

  • Don’t Believe the Hype

    Don’t Believe the Hype

    My husband is a very, VERY keen cyclist. That means, in our house at any one time, there are SQUILLIONS of water bottles: some vintage, some too big to fit into bottle cages, some promotional and all prone to getting very mouldy if not cleaned properly. The best ones, undoubtedly, are minimal in their design […]

  • Here’s the Thing

    Here’s the Thing

    I absolutely HATE learning that I’ve not been shortlisted for The Thing, or indeed I’ve not made it past the first stage by getting the email that tells me who has won The Thing. When I am in charge, there will be communication at every stage of the process. I will attempt to provide coherent […]

  • Enough is Enough

    Enough is Enough

    I might be tired, emotionally shredded and ache, but today I am enough. — ๐Ÿ—ฟ Sarah's Poems ๐Ÿ“ 100% Passion Guaranteed ๐Ÿ—ฟ (@MoveablePress) March 23, 2019 This week has not been kind. I slept without my Fitbit last night because sometimes, you don’t wanna know. A 9.30 PT should, I hope, kick-start a day of […]

  • You’re Not Alone

    You’re Not Alone

    These are the lies your mind tells you in order to hold you back from true greatness. Today, that fight is very real indeed. — ๐ŸŒŠ Sarah's Year of the Chat ๐ŸŒŠ (@AlternativeChat) January 31, 2018 Once upon a time, I would have sat and felt sorry for myself today. There would have been moping […]

  • The Message

    The Message

    Right then, Universe, you and I need to have a chat. I entirely grasp that being a selfish, arrogant fucktrumpet is a bad thing. There is no issue understanding that you need to be accommodating and empathetic when engaging in Social media discourse. However, sometimes it needs to be stated, for the record, that you […]

  • Words


    It’s been some time since a movie stopped me in my tracks, but last night (as our kids were with their Gran and Grandad) Mr Alt and I ‘rented’ Arrival. It’s probably the best six quid I’ve spent on a film for quite some time, and although it was almost frustratingly slow to start, on […]

  • Fairytale


    I was reading in the week that someone in my Twitter feed was celebrating the advantages of Discord as a networking tool. If you’re not aware, this is the programme designed for gamers which urges you to ditch Skype and TeamSpeak (both used as popular means of establishing voice communication in Warcraft, amongst other titles) […]
