They're just there. For as long as I remember their low murmur has been there in the deep parts of my mind, trickling down the back of my throat so that I can't quite taste them. My hands know what my tongue can't reach. They learned to form the letters like a printing press so … Continue reading The Words
The words are gone. I don't know where they are but I hope that they come back before anyone notices that they are missing. There was a day when they dripped from the trees like dew and you could pick them and taste their sweetness. You could feel them on the breeze and the water … Continue reading The Words Are Gone
Happy New Year! Here's some fireworks just for you. May it be a blessed year for you all and may you be walking closely with God. Well, I was thinking about what to blog this year.

'Go'n Then' and 'Gonnae No Dae That' are probably more appropriate campaign slogans, definitely more understandable for us common folk that have no real idea about what's actually going on. The whole … Continue reading The Third Option
Hi lads! This week's challenge is Pick something that you know absolutely nothing about and use it as the main focus of a piece of writing. I told myself I wouldn't get into this but to be fair, you could easily write this about the Scottish referendum. There has been a lot of talking and … Continue reading Writing Challenge – Week 36
Hi lads! I very nearly forgot you guys today. How remiss of me, I'm terribly sorry.By way of apology, here is this week's writing challenge: Write about the kindest thing anyone has ever done for you. I'd love to read your work so if you're not too shy, please post in the comments. 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
