2014: Year of Doing Stuff

Most people look at me with shock, horror and sometimes, (very rarely) awe, when I tell them that last year I worked full time and did two full time uni degrees with a child. Whether they can’t fathom doing it themselves or I truly am mad I don’t know. I tried to explain it to…

Roxy’s Status

It has been exactly six months since I have had time to work on my story about Roxy, the uptight and controlling broad who’s having the day from hell. The week from hell really. It’s all going pretty shit for her. I wouldn’t want to have to live through what I’m forcing her to go…

Renewed Vigour

I have conquered the semester of doom! Final results aren’t in yet though, however in typical style they probably won’t be in for at least two months after they are supposed to, and then they’ll change their minds and remark it anyway. This semester is widely known as the make or break you semester in…

The Upper Limits of Human Endurance

Following on from my post yesterday where I bemoan everything that’s difficult in my life, I would like to take the opportunity to bemoan something else that was difficult in my life that I kicked in the teeth. I like to describe myself as a ‘jack of all trades, master of none’. I’m good at…

BOOM!

That’s either the sound of me falling to the floor in a heap or shooting myself in the head – depends on the time of month as to which option I prefer 😉 I have written hundreds of thousands of words for my university assignments. I have received feedback that was so poorly written I…

2012!

Greetings and salutations to you, the precious few who still actually read this 🙂 I have dusted off the old WIP and am now sitting at tens of thousands of words. I’ve handwritten the entire story in note form, which has actually been quite beneficial. It’s not something I usually do and it’s probably the…

NaNoWriMo

Since I’m failing spectacularly at long-term goals at the moment, what with my several thousand short-term goals that I’m working on, I’ve decided to give NaNoWriMo a go. Why? A conversation with an old friend in Melbourne this weekend just gone. She abused me for not finishing any of my WIPs. Then my husband jumped…

A Dance With Dragons

I managed to acquire a copy of A Dance With Dragons by George R R Martin (aka, my hero) on July 12, the very day it was released. In fact, as I arrived at the bookstore, they were in the process of unpacking and sorting their preorders. I gleefully posted a picture of myself with…

Ooops!

I have failed in my attempts to keep to my words per day goal for the last week. I’ve fallen behind in my university studies too, but my husband has taken our daughter to work with him today so I can fix that part. Therefore, I’m offering myself up for corporal punishment – you decide…
