What I’ve written this week
Any extra activity leaves me exhausted. Some things are worth the consequences.
A little cottage and a small hobby farm seems like a lovely retirement. It’s a pity about that large predator that comes down from the mountains at night.
In a post climate-change world, everything is underwater, including unexpected monsters.
A poem about koalas, who are losing their habitat, and who need trees.
Thursday: New Year’s Eve
On one night of the year, easy prey comes to the vampire.
Fanta’s found her patch of sunshine again after days of rain.
Saturday: The Garden
In the next chapter of The Venomous Void, Wendy and friends enter the garden, and find what they’re looking for, along with a friend of a friend.
What I’ve been reading
- Alina Lee’s short story The Tired Commuter about a woman who recalls all the pressures from her work while she waits for a train.
- I loved Andrea, Children’s Illistrator’s The Power of a Blanket, an illustration that goes back to childhood, where something as simple as a blanket could be anything you wanted it to be.
- The Chronicles of History took me back to one of my favourite books with Frightening Quotes from Bram Stoker’s Dracula
- And of course I’m continuing my way through Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series which is taking for ever because I keep getting distracted by other things, but which is thoroughly entertaining. I’m up to the twentieth book, so almost half-way. I can recommend them for anyone who hasn’t read them yet.
