Pussy Galore’s Younger Sister …

Posted March 31, 2018 and visited 128 times, 10 so far today

Yes, that’s right, Bargains Galore! Oh ho ho ho, that was in aid of give a crap joke a home week. Once again, through the wonders of modern science I am speaking to you in my absence, this is getting to be a habit. Sorry about that, but what better day for me to post than on April Fool’s […]

Real Life is underrated. Using mundane events to fuel your writing mojo.

Posted March 24, 2018 and visited 216 times, 16 so far today

I’m not here this week, so by the wonders of technology, I am going to post to my blog and give a talk at the same time. So without more ado, here’s a piece outlining my theories about pimping your world to add realism to your writing. _______________________________________________ Pimp your world! Real life can feel like an unwelcome […]

Toboggan update, a war story and McMini versus Alexa.

Posted March 17, 2018 and visited 353 times, 21 so far today

It’s been a busy week this week. McMini is due to go on a school trip which involves two nights away. I have therefore been spending most of the week with a list of required clothing working out which items we have and buying the ones we don’t have. Pretty much all of them. In order to try and […]

Posted February 24, 2018 and visited 538 times, 14 so far today

Yep there’s a match made in heaven and here’s another how-not-to post from the queen of fuck ups at Spigot Towers. Today’s topics are Drain Rodding, financial prudence and how to alienate just under five thousand potential new members of your mailing list in one fell swoop. Mmmm… bet you can’t wait. OK on we go.

What do you see when you look at me?

Posted February 3, 2018 and visited 854 times, 23 so far today

You see a bad mother. Church, if you want to do it, can be a bit of a conundrum with small people. McMini being a bit older now and more susceptible to boredom, it is not so easy to persuade him to come to the Sunday service. Furthermore, when he does, it’s probably no longer appropriate for a young gentleman […]

Calm in a crisis; elementary burglary for dunderheads …

Posted January 27, 2018 and visited 678 times, 15 so far today

One of the strange things people tell me often is that I am calm in a crisis. Positively the ice woman, apparently, in my capacity for quick thinking action. Want to know a secret about that? It’s bollocks. Well not wholly bollocks but mostly. Amazingly, I am actually extremely cool-headed in a crisis, I can make calm decisions in the heat […]

It’s an anthology of fantastic short stories with one dodgy one from me to lower the tone. Phnark. Christmas Lites is a charity anthology to […]

To Infinity and Beyond! Plans for 2018. #NewYearsResolution

Posted January 6, 2018 and visited 1202 times, 21 so far today

Heaven knows how many weeks ago it was now, far back in the mists of time, anyway; before Christmas, I posted about my efforts to bludgeon people into reading my stuff over the course of 2017. Basically, I discovered that I had a much higher rate of read-through on my perma free book than I thought and that I should maybe […]
