Hello all. What’s this? A blog post? I know, I know, I have been TERRIBLE at posting the past few months. I could go on to list the multitude of excuses that I have stored up, but I am not going to do that. But now I have only my pesky gremlins to deal with… Continue reading Update
Starborn by Lucy Hounsom I will start off the bat, this isn’t going to be a favourable review. As I am not going to be recommending it to anyone, there will be some minor spoilers littered throughout. I have majorly procrastinated over this review because I didn’t enjoy the book. I have a need to… Continue reading Starborn: Review
As I don’t currently make any money from writing, I need to have a day job. I have mentioned before about my previous work history, but when I quit my full-time job I decided that I wanted to pursue acting again. When I was 8 or 9 (I think), I asked my parents if I… Continue reading ‘Lights, camera, action’? More like ‘eat, drink and be merry.’
I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh For the most part, I am strictly a fantasy reader, with the occasional sci-fi thrown in. However, a few weeks ago my twitter feed was bombarded with reviews, comments and promo for I Let You Go. I will admit, I succumbed to the peer pressure and acquired a… Continue reading I Let You Go: Review

Her power grants her the ability to commune with her companion- a wolf called Storm- and connect to the Earth and use its… Continue reading A Whisper of Wolves: Review
All I Know Now by Carrie Hope Fletcher If I were to write my own auto-biography cum advice book, it would end up fairly similar to All I Know Now. Of course some names would change, as would some situations, but the basic essence of the book would be the same.
In Search of Lost Dragons by Elian Black’Mor, Carine-M and Jezequel is a journal style book, with beautiful illustrations and notations about various dragons. It took me aaaaaages to actually download this book due to technical difficulties. Once I finally had it open on the screen in front of me, my first reaction was disappointment: I could… Continue reading In Search of Lost Dragons: Review
When I was 16, my school did short tasters for the new subjects available for study at A-Level. I attended the psychology session and was hooked from that moment on. Previously, I had thought I might study biology at university, but from that one hour sessionI knew that I wanted to be a psychologist. For… Continue reading It’s Never Too Late
I know that the stereotypical image of a writer, like most artists, is the one where they are surrounded by half drunk cups of coffee, pen behind their ear while they look for it, scraps of paper tucked into every book and crevice. Organisation doesn’t seem like it would fit into this image, and it… Continue reading Get Organised!
I have suffered from procrastination for as long as I can remember. The bystander often thinks that root of procrastination is laziness though there are many psychological articles which demonstrate otherwise. I thought I would write about my own experience with it, using the simple analogy of brain gremlins. I am coming at this from… Continue reading Procrastination Gremlins
