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. ┬áThere 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 is where 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. At the moment there are no regularly scheduled posts (thanks to finding myself living in very interesting times on a personal level as well as *gestures at the world*) but I’m hoping 2023 will bring a little more space for structure as I have a couple of ideas for blog series I’d really like to find the time to write and share.

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, to all the posts I wrote between 2014 and 2018 to commemorate the centenary of the conflict, one post for each month of fighting.

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.
