What I’ve been writing

Tuesday The Big Time

Wednesday Pollie Ticks
A poem about people being fed up with politics as usual.
Cindy had never heard terms like “neurodivergent” or “sensory overload” she just knew she hated the beach.
Friday Top Ten Uses for a Human
Princess Cat explains why humans are useful to cats.
In chapter four of my work in progress, The Venomous Void, Wendy learns a new skill and receives an important message.
What I’ve enjoyed reading
- Kara Sue Achterberg’s charming story of establishing a little free library, and her love of reading.
- Lady Jabberwocky wrapped up her month on mystery writing.
- A science story which justifies my caffeine consumption. Drinking coffee can protect kidneys.
- After Io, novel by Elliot Wink, available on Kindle. Find the author on Twitter @WinkAuthor. It’s a space adventure (you might have guessed by the title) which caught my interest with the first couple of paragraphs. Three injured women are trapped on a disabled spacecraft and are not receiving replies to their distress calls.
- And I’m still working my way through all of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books.
- Not so much reading, but I love Andrea, Children’s Book Illustrator’s work. She’s been a bit inactive on her blog for a little while, so it was great to see The Scream (shark version.)
- Rhyan Scorpio-Rhys’ story Garota Exilada 1 is a fascinating start to what I expect will be a great story.
- Sarah Cooper’s article (Twitter @sarahmcooper) on Ten Incredible Lost Treasures of the World
- And I’m about 13 books in on my reading of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books and still loving it. I wish I’d discovered them earlier.
