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.

Well, maybe not the best week of my life in general, but last week was certainly one of the best weeks in terms of writing, or post-writing.

It’s Continue reading Twice Forthnightly – Maybe the best week so far

Today’s ThinkKit prompt is a free choice (Chef’s choice, as the email said) and since I’ve been thinking lately that I should post about my plans for 2015 on the blog I thought I’d make a “two birds, one stone” thing of it.
