Not a total washout.

Yesterday threatened to be a creative drought, until some lateral thinking headed that notion off at the pass.

When writer's block threatens, one of the suggested options is to write....anything. Don't think, just write. It doesn't have to make sense, but it might just jump start that creativity vibe.

This is a first...

"Ssshhhh! Sshhhh!  It's oh so quiet....It's oh so still! Sshhh, sshhh!"

It has just turned 07.00hrs BST and I'm up before the baby, sorry toddler for once.

Little Miss is still in the land of nod, I've done the bins and nearest and dearest left for work at daft o'clock.  So... here I am, coffee to the right of me, laptop on my knee, fingers poised to create a masterpiece only to find that my Muse has buggered off to the sea-side again!

"And so peaceful until... "

Ahhh ...and there goes Little Miss, normality descends, rapidly.

Poetry Post

This is another excerpt from my forthcoming book  ENCOUNTERS.

Hot Latin Flight

You tempt and tease
me with your eyes,

Pixar under siege?

Following close on the heels of Maureen Vincent-Northam's animated success comes yet another challenger for Pixar's crown.(cough, cough!)

If you enjoy a good murder mystery, you need look no further than the STAC casebooks.

The Accidental Poet...: Writelink launches new writing challenges

The Accidental Poet...: Writelink launches new writing challenges: "Writelink, the on-line writing community, has just launched its latest writing challenges. These challenges are now open to non-members, so ..."

Move over Pixar...

There is a new kid on the block in the field of animation...Maureen Vincent-Northam.

It's good but I don't think Pixar should panic JUST yet., they're safe for now. (lol)...  All joking aside, I would heartily recommend buying this book. It has definitely proved to be a valuable addition to my library.
