    Wow… I know I’ve been away for so long, many catch up posts will follow, but just for now: This wonderful present arrived from America this afternoon, the note reads; “She’s small, pale and beautifully formed, she’s got class, looks stunning in red and sounds amazing when you turn her on… The record player ain’t bad either…” Oh he’s a clever, clever man! Even if it’s a wash out at least my summer will sound good… Xx

    "Forgive me father
    for I have sinned
    the crumbs from your table
    are never enough
    And temptation
    tastes of milk and honey
    Oh give us this day
    our daily bread
    and a handful of silver
    to forgive our trespasses
    a salted benediction
    to save our souls
    before we are just ashes
    and dust."

    - The Sin Eater Siobhan Rodgers 2011 (via the-wordgirl)

    He’s the shadow lingering on the edge of your nightmare. He’s the teenage dream you conjured some lonely midnight. You knew really, they’re the same thing. His heart is darker than that wool coat he hides it behind, a demon named all wrong, all cool and easy charm and a closed fist. His eyes are…

    Practicing characterisation over on The Word Girl, using my old loves as inspiration, I’m hoping no one is offended and I get some feedback on my writing, please if you have a minute, hop on over and leave me a note? Thank you Xx

    The Word Girl

    At night I don’t sleep, I write, pouring ink onto paper with my heart; stories, poetry and ideas, snippets of beautiful things, a comfort, a distraction from the dark. Each morning my fingers are covered in ink, as blue as the dawn, and is that the mark of a writer? My mother says I was born to this; before I knew the alphabet, before there was school and exercise books full of copied letters, I was writing, covering pages in tiny ooooooooo’s, broken like words on an inked page, telling my parents with all the exasperation a toddler can muster that I was writing a story, as if they were in my way or costing me time. And so these twenty something years later I write, words now, magical, strange, distracting words; my comfort blanket, my saviour; for a word, after a word, after a word is power…. *

    I’ve been careful with my words, locking them in drawers and only giving them to those I trusted with my life or more, but I’ve needed feedback, constructive and insightful and so I’ve started a new blog "The Word Girl" (because yes, I need four…) in the place of a writing group I had been planning to attend and which fell though, so dear Internet, please be my writing group? Read and comment, prompt me, push me, send me links, please? S Xx
