Writing For Writing’s Sake

I’ve wrote about 300 words tonight and even as each was typed I could feel the scene slowly spiralling out of control; digressing and waffling are the words that come to mind but the positive is that I have written more of the story tonight.

My choo choo train of thought is just wanting me to play around a bit more with the feel of the story hence the waffling I have typed up.  The important thing here is that it’s OK to do!

Riddle Me This


Cecil needs your help!


My first is in flea but not in fly

My second is in town but not in tonne – why?

Because my third is in warning but not in waning

Said the fourth ant who’s not into complaining

Instead, he likes the fifth dish but has no dosh

So he saw the sixth horse, which was far from posh

The ant gathered his thoughts which were all jumbled together

“am I going to be able to make sense of all these letters?”


Can you help poor Cecil out?

First Day Of The Summer Holidays

And all is going well in the house,

Not a creature is stirring but my youngest is playing with a toy mouse.

My eldest is glued to the TV screen,

It’s a glum day today so no need for sun cream.

The cats are asleep and coffee is keeping me awake,

No need to rush around until tea time when I will cook steak.
