August Thoughts

August has been a lot like July in terms of creativity. A month to be outside, doing things rather than sitting at a desk writing. One thing I’ve been trying to tackle is the middle plot for my ongoing WIP. You can read more on my update here.

Outside of writing, I’ve been fiddling with more Canva layouts, trying to simplify the IG content I create. I enjoy playing around with visual editing and layouts, but it is a time sink which can tempt me away from doing actual productive tasks. Hopefully by having some new layouts, and putting less pressure on myself, I can get back to a happy balance between writing/content creating.

What have you been up to this month? Any successes for your creative projects?

Temple of Ukla (From the Archives)

“Can you not pray away the rain?” Zivami asked as he paced around the table in the centre of the tent. “That’s not how it works,” Valite replied, adjusting her cloak, “and you know it.” Zivami snorted. “Could at least try,” he said. “You’re lucky the wards are still holding up around here,” Valite said, … More Temple of Ukla (From the Archives)

Winter Evening Thoughts

Somehow it’s already three days into December, and it’s only now I’ve realised I had yet to write a monthly blog update. It’s fitting, really, given how this month has gone. I’ve read a lot more and written a lot more, which has meant my blog break I started in October has extended into November … More Winter Evening Thoughts

Expel (From the Archives)

Nainea held on tightly to her copper badge, curling up around it to stop them taking it off her. The cave floor was cold, still wet with the blood of the guards she had managed to kill. At least the badge still listened to her, it still obeyed her. But now, until she could get … More Expel (From the Archives)

Having Stepped away for a Moment

This month I’ve stepped away from the cycle of blog posts and updates. And actually, it was pretty damn good as a month. Sometimes, you have to recognise there is just not enough time in the day. October has been that month, coupled with the inevitable autumn cold and social gatherings starting to murmur into … More Having Stepped away for a Moment

Things to get excited about

Wheel of Time

I’ve been a fan of the Wheel of Time for many years. It’s still surreal to think that we get a live action TV series, and the first peek photos look incredible! Cannot wait for November to roll around.

MCU is back

Yes, I’m one of those people that will watch the MCU. It’s actually really nice to go to a film and kind of know what you’re expecting, but still be blown away.

The trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and The Eternals are getting me super excited to get back to the cinema!

I’ve also been binging my way through the MCU TV shows, which have been a lot of fun (although slightly ridiculous with the forced romance plotlines – looking at you Loki, we could have just had badass Sylvie without…that ending).

Reading Update

Still making my way through Jade War, but I am super invested in the storyline now. Just need to find some consistent time to read!
