There is a window opposite my bed, a big one. It's curved and gives m a little more space, although it is already a big room. I can sit and watch the tree, the leaves that fall and change. At the moment it is Autumn and every thing is turning orange and brown. I know… Continue reading The Window – a short story
So, I'm looking at starting on the PhD in only a few weeks. But I am worried about my writing of short stories being a little lax...

I am actually going to study for a Ph.D.! But this means a certain amount of writing that is taken up with research. I want to keep you all abreast of it but do I just create another button, or do I open a new blog...? Is anyone interested in 19th-century asylums?
I have been missing and for that I apologise. Sorry... It was Easter and we went away for a while. Loved that. It was so nice... It was a great few days with us going from Weston Super Mare to Bath. We both needed a recharge and we did that. But before the trip I'd… Continue reading Update
Which is better? Digital or traditional? I do both. In fact, they both take the same amount of time. But which is the better medium? I can't decide... Which is the better for resale? Do people even buy digital drawings? I'm planning a drawing but I can't decide whether to make it digital or traditional...… Continue reading Drawing
Have I mentioned that I'm thinking about going for one? I have a masters in creative writing and I have found a project that I really want to study.
