Writing goals revisited

I first set myself writing goals in October 2015. In deciding what (if anything) I wanted to save from my archieved website, I re-read them. Some of them made me laugh, others I was pleased to say I'd (finally) placed a tick beside, but ... the most important thing it did was to make me... Continue Reading →

Seven deadly sins

This writing prompt caught my eye as I thought it might be fun to play with. Until the real world rushed that is. One of the most powerful people in the world right now embodies all these sins.
