I just wanted to say I'll leave it to your capable imaginations which one was me at eleven o'clock when my brother came home with a bunch of friends -_- Nevertheless it was an alright New Year. Hope you all enjoyed it. And remember it. The past year has been a hard one in a … Continue reading Happy New Year!
I know it's late but I'm just so elated that I've finally finished my last essay for this semester that I'm probably not going to sleep too soon. It is so good to have the work completed and completed on time. Unless you already know the feeling it just can't be explained. The funny thing is that it's even … Continue reading Satisfaction Indeed
Hi lads! Apologies for this unhallowed hour but it's been quite a day. Not sure if that's a good thing or not but hey-ho. This week's challenge (week 40 already!) is: Write a comedy but with an underlying twist of sorrow. Keep it subtle though. That's part of the skill. Ach, you guys know what … Continue reading Writing Challenge – Week 40
Hi guys! This week's writing challenge is Write about planting trees. Happy Writing!

Hi lads! I hope you've had a good week. My brother was just telling me about the most deliciously evil thing he's seen this week and it really cracked me up so I thought I'd share it with you. He was in McDonald's and there were two people in the queue in front of him. … Continue reading Writing Challenge – Week 31
Hi lads! It has been a good week for us here, we've been on holiday - sort of. We had time off work but stayed at home and did stuff. We had two amazing trips to Pitlochry to see some shows, my favourite of which was JM Barrie's The Admirable Crichton (review perhaps to follow). We … Continue reading Writing Challenge – Week 30
I wrote this poem a while ago but I kept it quietly in my notebook because I felt that the words were given to me as comfort in a difficult time rather than pretty lyrics for show. It doesn't have a title because there isn't really one which springs out for it. When We Were Young … Continue reading Down by the Shore
In the early light, the mist begins to clear and I can make out the shapes of their conical hats. Woven baskets, already beginning to fill hang heavy on their hips as they bend and straighten, bend and straighten. Except that the older ones are no longer able to stand as tall as they once … Continue reading The Call
