Playing Gerbil

I was doing a writing exercise purely for fun and came up with a new story (the fun element may be quite obvious in it).

The exercise came from the Write Brain Workbook (*love!*) and had to start with “Sometimes I feel just like a gerbil running around and around on his wheel!”

Here’s the link:

And the next story is up! This is not one I'm that fond of, but it was either this or the cheesey one. Here's a link:

Inky Glory

I started working on the cover for my zine which I’ll publish this summer. I came up with an impromptu title “Inky Glory” and looked it up on google. Apparently it’s original but there’s something about it I don’t like. Feedback, maybe? The alternative would be "White Space". It’s just going to contain stories and flash fiction.

Anyway, I ended up finishing the title page and I’m pretty pleased. The only thing left is the bloody content!

Here it is:

I’m trying out publishing from Windows Live Writer. (It’s got spellcheck!) Nothing else.

PDFs and White Skies

I realised one thing I miss that I didn't know I missed: clean shadows. In this country there are no blue skies and no black shadows. Everything from the sky to the ground is pasty grey.

The sun is out today and I've opened my curtains and laid down on the carpet under the sunbeam. I could almost pretend it's summer.

As an aside, I've got the pdfs mastered. Just the comments left to sort out and then I have no excuses for not getting to work.

Proof of Heaven

So the first story is up! It took enough tinkering to get the web navigation right but there it is, cowering by itself on

Now to figure out the printable version... *crosses fingers*

And so it begins....

My vapor plans are becoming solid. Things are moving forward, the stories shall flow and here will be where I chronicle the (lack of) adventures I may face!

Oh, who am I kidding? This page will probably stay empty until summer, when "things" will once more become entertaining enough to write about, at which time everyone will be, like me, on the beach.

However, when a new story becomes available, I will post so here with a link.

See you in a few weeks!
