    Writing 101 – The Future

    Hi, Hey. Hello! We have reached the end of yet another month and therefore I have reached the end of another little blog project over here at Keep Going. And it’s a nice simple prompt for the final day. The Future. It’s almost like that word is this that is too scary say. Like saying makes it real. And that in itself is scary. Terrifying really. It’s like one of those things that happens to you without you really realising. It’s this thing that demands to be acknowledged and other people demand to know about it and it’s all very overwhelming sometimes. There was pretty much nothing worse then people…

    Mischief Managed

    Hi, Hey, Hello! My map of choice is the Marauder’s Map in the muggle world. Why I don’t know because I am 90% certain it wouldn’t work (or who would be this reckless with it), but hey ho that’s the beauty of imagination. It was late (ish) when the idea hit me and I have literally no interaction with maps in any way shape or form in life…so I went with JK Rowling’s beautiful (and clever) creation. I thought it was a random scrap of paper that I found on the street and thought I would do my bit for the environment or whatever and put it the bin (so…

    Saved

    Hi, Hey, Hello! It’s incredibly arrogant of me if I say that I found it really hard to ‘mine from my own material’ isn’t it? But it kind of was because reading back my own stuff makes me cringe sometimes, especially the older stuff. I stuck with Disney because I learnt that it was easier for me go back into one of those ones mindsets then to do it with something of my own creation (look I may also have been feeling a bleurgh when I wrote this and Disney is one of my happy places). The first part of this is Emerald, so ya know here be mermaids. As…

    Hope You’re Happy

    To whomever finds this, I hope you’re happy. No, really I do. I hope that you find that thing that calms you down whenever everything feels like it’s getting too much. I hope you have that one song that just gets you for whatever mood you’re in. I hope that you get your preferred hot drink of choice just as it hits the perfect temperature. I hope your favourite TV show is always there to welcome you back with open arms when you need it most. And that your favourite pair of jeans never loses whatever it is that makes them just right. I hope you avoid that downpour of rain by seconds…

    Writing 101 – Recreate a whole day

    Hi, Hey, Hello! It’s the last week of the month and also means that I have one month left at work before I finish for the year. Today’s prompt gave me a whole load of ideas as to what day I could chose, but I went with this one in the end. The only thing that really crossed my mind in my being dragged from a blissfully deep sleep was what the hell is that noise? My ringtone was the answer. My scarcely heard ringtone was loudly echoing throughout my otherwise silent room and aggressively vibrating it’s way across the chest of drawers that it was charging on. I yanked…
