#WeekendCoffeeShare 9th April 2016

If we were having coffee together I’d already be distracted, trying to lay my hands on the pieces of paper with the first half of this post on. I’d tell you how I’ve enjoyed the sheer ‘ordinariness’ reading similar posts of Irene Waters as she updates followers with household exploits, puppy training and writing updates. #WeekendCoffeeShare is hosted by Diana over at Part Time Monster – I like the easy, chatty way of it, so I’d started a few notes at the beginning of the week – almost a diary, but as we’re having coffee in public, Continue reading “#WeekendCoffeeShare 9th April 2016”

What does your Bio need, apart from a Whiff of Cheese?!

I’ve been stalling writing a bio for the Carrot Ranch Congress of Rough Writers for weeks and weeks – a couple of posts on what makes me a writer were very useful Continue reading “What does your Bio need, apart from a Whiff of Cheese?!”

Well, wouldn’t you know it. Just when I stop compiling responses to bite size prompts, I get the most humbling and honest, soul-bearing collection of responses from strong and courageous survivors (along with a trapped testicle from Geoff, which is – well – uncatagorizable! But I think he too, survived..) Continue reading “Bite Size Memoir “Bad Hair Day””

Jinks and Japes

We’ve had all sorts of responses to this weeks prompt of “Jinks and Japes” and many reminders of the different perspectives and experiences we’ve each had growing up. Geoff had me on a fruitless search of my local high street, for Garibaldis – to both remind myself of a squashed fly biscuit and inform you guys over the pond! Continue reading “Jinks and Japes”
