Flash Fiction Friday – Going Up

I wasn’t sure what to write tonight, so I asked the bot in my Discord server for a prompt and got the following: “As the elevator door is about to close, you lock eyes with someone on the other side – someone from the past.” Somehow this resulted in a weirdly introspective piece, looking back and forward at the same Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Going Up

Twice Fortnightly – Basically Last Week of School

I was not particularly happy with my progress last week. I did get a few things done, but not as much as I would’ve liked. Here’s what I did: Wrote for 8h. 2/3 of my goal. I am not pleased. I wrote a short piece for Flash Fiction Friday! It was a little spur of the moment piece, but I Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Basically Last Week of School

Flash Fiction Friday – Different, Familiar

Evenin’ guys! Check me out, I remembered to post this on Friday this week. Tonight, I went to the house warming party of my next door neighbor, who happen to have moved into the apartment of the parents of someone I was best friends with basically up until I hit my teens. So since I couldn’t think of anything else Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Different, Familiar

Twice Fortnightly – Happy Easter!

It’s Easter week! Hope ya’ll are doing good. I’m having a chill week this week, since apart from a brief thing on Wednesday I’m on vacation from work. I’m trying to focus on my thesis to feel like I’m getting some proper progress on that. It’s going pretty well, so far. We’ll see. Writing wise, since my last Twice Fortnightly Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Happy Easter!

Word Cloud of Going Home!

Hey guys, look what I made!   It’s a word cloud made with the full text of Going Home. I’m going to print and laminate it and put it up somewhere in my flat. I sort of want to do this with all my future books. I think it’s just a fun way to sort of commemorate the occasion! Just wanted to Continue reading Word Cloud of Going Home!

Twice Fortnightly – Slow Grind

As you may have noticed, it is Tuesday. Yesterday I was in such an off mood, I spent the whole day watching Orphan Black and then slumped directly into bed after an evening visit at my parents’ place. Bleh! So I’m blogging today instead. The week has been all right but slow. For some reason, I often get a really Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Slow Grind

The Liebster Award! I nominate… You!

I was recently nominated for the Liebster Award by Paola Crespo, one of my writing Tweeps! Thank you, Paola! So what’s the Liebster Award? Well, it’s more of a sort of blog hop that you pass along to up-and-coming bloggers who perhaps don’t have a lot of followers yet. The rules are as follows: 1. Thank the blogger who nominated Continue reading The Liebster Award! I nominate… You!

A Single Word – ThinkKit Prompt #30

Today’s ThinkKit prompt, the second to last of the year, is to try and find a word with which to sum up your year. Well, I’ve got a word for you: milestones. This year, I published my first book. My boyfriend moved here from Canada. I finally finished a course that’s been tormenting me for a couple of years. And I Continue reading A Single Word – ThinkKit Prompt #30

A Dash of Thanks – ThinkKit Prompt #25

I was planning to make this a double post,  ThinkKit prompt #24 and #25. #25 was to share a photo of a tradition from the past year. I was planning to take a photo of our Christmas Day board game session earlier today but I totally forgot, so I’ll have to stick to #24, which is to talk about what one Continue reading A Dash of Thanks – ThinkKit Prompt #25

Alla-Kazam! – ThinkKit Prompt #7

Today’s ThinkKit prompt encourages bloggers to think of one thing they would magically change in 2015 if they could. I always find those sorts of questions tricky. They make me feel like a contestant in one of those beauty pageants, where they’re supposed to say what they wish for and they all say “World Peace”. Because how can you not, right?
