    DAILY WRITING PROMPTS 11 IT’S MY LIFE and, provided it was penned by a decent author, it would probably make for a rather fascinating read. Now, obviously, I don’t know what my future holds, but even if I were to die tomorrow there’s been enough drama, horror, action, romance, fantasy…

    DAILY WRITING PROMPTS 10 ICE CREAM FLAVOURS… Funnily enough, when it comes to ice cream I am very much a vanilla kinda girl. And the funny part of that whole equation is that I am so not vanilla and most certainly not a girl. Now, don’t get me wrong. Ice…

    DAILY WRITING PROMPTS 9 MY GREATEST fear… Now, isn’t that an interesting question to be faced with right now? If I were to be locked into a room with my greatest fear there are only two possible scenarios: 1) The room is full of snakes, spiders and other creepy crawlies.…

    DAILY WRITING PROMPTS 8 THE TEACHER that had the most impact on my life? Hmm… I feel like I need to preface my answer to that question by saying I’ve had quite a few really good teachers in my life. Some of them were my teachers, some of them were…

    DAILY WRITING PROMPTS 6 JONAH, YOU are my favourite person in the whole wide world! I can’t believe it’s been two years since we last cuddled up and told each other secrets. Or played games and laughed at how bad I was at playing LEGO The Hobbit.  When you left to…

  • PAIN IS TEMPORARY

    DAILY WRITING PROMPTS 4 MY FAVOURITE quote, that has become my motto in life, is: “Pain is temporary – losing is forever.” Pretty sure it’s from a ghastly film with snakes on a plane, but that’s not why it resonates with me. Living with chronic pain, I came so close…
