As I stare at this pile of books (you’re only seeing a fraction), I have to repeat one mantra: You are doing this in the name of creative writing. Okay, sure. I’m aggrandising this a bit.

This site has been around for a few years now, and I keep promising to post more. Clearly, that hasn’t been working. So I took my break time today to really hash out a plan for this blog. Seriously.

It’s amazing how much more of her I can see in it, whereas before it seemed Ambrosius and all his manic antics stole the show.… Continue reading A Little Creative Experiment
