New York, New York

Posted on July 10th, 2015 @ 09:37 in Uncategorized

Did I say “Paris, forever Paris” down there? As predictably as ever, I have (temporarily?) switched my allegiance to New York after spending the two most amazing weeks there. Here is a kinda short travelogue. No, it really will be short. Ish. More »

Time flies when you’re having fun

Posted on April 27th, 2015 @ 22:11 in Uncategorized

… which is why we’re now nearly a third of the way through this year and there hasn’t been a single blog entry yet. Life’s great though, and I just wanted to note that here for posterity.

But, having just had a look through my 2015 plans from the year end survey, I’ve actually not achieved very much:

Eliminator Race in February (Achilles trouble)
✓ Placebo twice in Feb / March.
Paris Marathon in April. (Achilles trouble)
– Work on swimming (on and off, long break due to 1. shoulder trouble 2. hating it)
– buy road bike (about to!)
– do first triathlon (well, we’ll see…)
Finish novel first draft, hopefully soonish. Then second draft? I hope so! (I have no excuse for this except I… had other stuff to do?)

What I did do tho was:
✓ adopt the best cat in the world (and build him a ladder and shelves and and and…)
✓ do a mindfulness course
✓ work a lot in March
✓ not work very much since
✓ think about moving to a ground floor / bigger flat (due to cat & bike)

And of course it’s not so long until New York (and Paris before that!)

Next update in August! *lmao* (no, there will be travelogues before that of course)

Why writing is like running

Posted on November 29th, 2014 @ 01:50 in Uncategorized

Speak for yourself, you may say at this point. Okay, I am! This is how writing has been like running for me, or more specifically, how NaNoWriMo has been like Couch25K.  More »

So here’s an interesting article: Most People With Addiction Simply Grow Out of It: Why Is This Widely Denied? The author, Maia Szalavitz, is “one of the [America’s] leading neuroscience and addiction journalists” (and also a respected Mefite). More »

Blighters in Brighton

Posted on September 30th, 2014 @ 19:45 in Uncategorized

Okay. Here’s a piece – a few pieces actually – I wrote for Geo-Writing, which was part of the Brighton Digital Festival. It’s a great idea – you get a prompt based on your location (most are in Brighton, but there are world-wide ones too), then write up to 300 words around it. I ended up grabbing a bunch of prompts, going west to east from West Street to the hospital, and writing a continuous story with them. Some prompts worked better than others, but I managed to get them all in. More »
