I feel his lips on my neck as he leaves kisses on my… Read More

I’m Writing a Novel!

  I’ve wanted to write a novel for a long time. When I was a child I would write stories on scraps of paper, read them and throw them in the bin never thinking they were good enough. I never told anyone about it either, just a handful of people I know who are close to me. I’m now at a point in my life where I want to revive that childhood dream and actually write a novel and become a published writer. I’ve been writing on this blog since last year… Read More

The Fiction Cafe Book Club

The Fiction Cafe – Book Club In just a year a lot has happened. I may not have achieved the target blog followers I aimed for. I may not have been as active as I wanted to be on my blog. What I have achieved has been amazing! In Jan, I met a lovely lady by chance in a book group on Facebook. We went on to start our own after rude admins didn’t agree with a simple suggestion. In just 8 months we have a group with just under 4’000 members!… Read More

Daily Prompt – Time

  So I was a little stumped for a post and thought I would go to the daily prompt for inspiration for today’s post! When I realised what today’s prompt was, I have to say I was pleased! It actually gives a reason to go over past issues I’ve had when I was growing up and hurtful comments I had while at school!   Angel Eyes I arrive at school on a normal day wondering what today will bring. The morning was the start to a new week and the class were… Read More

8 Times That Take That Will Have You ROFL on Carpool Karaoke!

Carpool Karaoke with Take That and James Corden Comic Relief would not have been complete without James Corden and his Carpool Karaoke. It is now an essential part of Comic relief after last year when James Corden appeared with George Michael and created what it is today. As is, in all James Corden’s sketch videos he ropes celebrities into singing along with him as he transports them to their next appearance which is normally held at the CBS studios in Los Angeles. The show was originally a feature on James’ late night US talk The Late Late Show….

Flash Fiction -The Blind Date

  Candice was late for a lunch date with Drake. She hurried along the busy  London streets to try and catch up the time to arrive before he did. She wanted to arrive before him so she had time to observe at a distance and run in case he was another weird guy like the last one. The air was warm with a touch of heat, enough to make sweat marks on the underside of her pale tunic. She flings her long, dark chestnut hair over her shoulder to cool down her neck from the clamminess.  She… Read More

A New Year!

  I will apologise for the lack of presence on my blog… It’s because NaNoWriMo happened and then Christmas. It’s unfortunate that they fell at the same time and I decided that with so much ‘stuff’ going around in my brain I couldn’t cope with all of them occupying it at the same time. I need a break frankly from the PC. It’s technology that I dislike but in the modern world, it is essential. Well I had a break … of two months and it probably was a lot longer than I… Read More

Happy Thanksgiving!

  Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends over the pond. I’ve woken up today in a happy mood. Whether that is because I slept well or if it’s because I hit 29’000 word count for my novel, I’m not sure. What I am sure about is that I have a lot to be thankful for. When it comes to life we have to be thankful to have our family and friends, a career that makes money to keep a roof over our heads and our health. we are alive so embrace it! Here… Read More

NaNoWriMo | Halfway There!

This month has been a challenge, to say the least. With my novel slowly taking shape and new plot twists are in abundance, I’ve realised how very unprepared I was for this month. The plan I had in place for what I would write was probably a waste of time as all the planning, plots and research I did have been abandoned as my characters have totally changed the route of the story. Where my main character was a good girl, she no longer is. She isn’t the little good girl I… Read More
