Hello and

Welcome Photo: a desk, with paper, a pair of glasses, an ink pot and a sprig of greenery are scattered. In the centre are several sheets of brown paper, being written on by a pair of hands. The sheet shows the word Welcome having just been written on it.

Terry Pratchett once said “so much universe, and so little time” and this pretty much encapsulates how I feel about life.  There are so many things I want to see, so many places I want to visit, and so many thoughts I want to weave into stories that I sometimes feel like I’m always playing catch-up.

This blog, Where Kizzia Lives, is the place I share some of those catch-up attempts with anyone who happens along.

The blog tab holds all my posts on here, so you’ll find my latest adventures in crafting, writing, reading, and generally being a human in this currently even stranger than normal world.

As of January 2023 this is a fairly accurate summary of what you’ll mainly find me posting about.

In December 2023 I started a blog series called Working with the Wheel, this being one post for each quarter and cross quarter day talking about how I honour each and offering a small insight into my witchcraft practice. The series started with the Winter Solstice and all of them can be found under the Working with the Wheel category, most recent post first.

The “This Sparks Joy!” series has become a quarterly round up of recommendations for tv shows, films, music and places I’ve visited. This used to include book recommendations but this year I’ve decided to split them out and share reviews of everything I’ve rated 3 stars and above in one post at the end of the month; the first two can be found in January Reads and February Reads.

I am also continuing my The Small Things Spreading Joy monthly round ups and, having had so much fun with my Twelve Tales from the Wildwood, I will be writing a new set of short stories, the series being titled Flashes of Feathers, one story per month over the year.

If you’re here from the Great War Group, or you’re not but you’re interested in the First World War anyway, then my WWI: 52, 52 tab is the one you want. This contains a list, with links, detailing everything I wrote between 2014 and 2018 to commemorate the centenary of the conflict.

One thing I have managed to fit into my currently all-over-the-place schedule is sharing a piece of micro-flash fiction every Monday on twitter (thank you Writer’s HQ, writing group sent by the best sort of deities, for providing the weekly prompts) and I’m collecting them on a page here too.

If, having read the above and some of my posts, you’ve decided you’d like to find me elsewhere on the internet, clicking this link will take you to a helpful list.

And finally, if you’d like a monthly update as to what I’m up to that includes things I haven’t talked about here and a one card tarot draw for the month ahead you can sign up to my Substack.
