(Email vs postal subs.) The writers in my head are better than me at this.

I steeled myself and sent off another few bits and pieces to various literary magazines. My printer is broken (my printers always become fucksy real fast, it's a thing) so I only sent to places that accept online subs. Thinking about it though, I rarely post my stories. I entered a couple of big competitions... Continue Reading →

Bit o’ nothing really

I haven't updated here recently. I think I am in a bit of a funk. I only just thought of that word "funk" but it seems to fit perfectly with my mood. Random then:I miss Matt, and I try not to notice just how much because it rips me to pieces. So I think a... Continue Reading →

Update with no cohesion

1) I am saying "fecking Christmas" way too often.2) Saturday (aka the busiest retail day of the year) the computer system at work was down. This meant that all enquiries had to be answered by the whirring of my own brain. It was rather amazing to see how much I did know, my mind must... Continue Reading →

Love/hate rebel

I guess I didn't quite grow out of my teenage rebellious phase. It's my birthday next week, but... Continue Reading →

Random stuff

1 - The Burroughs book that my colleague was holding when he said "Look, it's Matt..."? Turns out it's subtitled "A book of the dead".2 - I am desperately struggling to edit a story I love. I love it but know that it doesn't work as it is. Now I have a new end visual... Continue Reading →


Matt loved William Burroughs. Matt loved cut ups. I don't really understand either. Matt was hugely¬†enthusiastic¬†about Burroughs, and frequently referenced him. Rubbishly I have never read him myself so pretty much all I know is what Matt has shared with me. Matt also used cut ups throughout his life, musically (literally¬†splicing tape), creatively...I'm not sure... Continue Reading →

Rice and words.

This is a curious new site, which claims to donate grains of rice through the United Nations to help end world hunger when you correctly identify words. One's vocab level rises when the words become more difficult, and apparently the revenue to pay for the rice is generated by the sponsors adverts at the bottom... Continue Reading →
