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?

September Wrap Up

September has come and gone in the blink of an eye. For me, September has been a month of trying to get back into doing normal things, following August throwing me off my pattern. Exercise, self-care and writing have all slowly come back into my day to day routine. It’s still very much a work … More September Wrap Up

Halcyon (From the Archives)

  Xeen remembered those days, before all this. Before the power started going.  Before the food began running out. Before before. A time when he would run in the street with his friends, scales glinting in the suns double glare. When he would be accepted into the world. When he was part of the community. … More Halcyon (From the Archives)

We’re not going that way

“Why not?” “Why not?!” Favian’s voice rose another octave, “because I don’t want to die, Renglat. I like all my limbs on me, not in the mouth of some gods forsaken creature.” Renglat sighed. The Bard was trying at times, but when it came to decisions like this, he was almost insufferable. “The alternative,” Renglat … More We’re not going that way

Summer’s End

August is always a month of re-set. Even though I am long past the educational systems’ September-September year, there always is this sensation of starting a new cycle at the end of August. In some ways, it’s a farewell to the height of summer and looking onwards into winter, and for me, it’s also a … More Summer’s End

Control (From the Archives)

  Zeleth held the Orb in his hands, gently brushing his thumbs across the clear glass surface. Inside, the green light of the Uneltro followed his thumb like a pup would follow its master’s hand. It seemed so strange, something this small could hold so much power. A knock at the door. “Leave me,” Zeleth … More Control (From the Archives)

Restraint (From the Archives)

“You have to be calm!” Fretr yelled over the sounds of the storm. Above, lighting cracked overhead in the dark heavy clouds. Henni could feel the rain start hitting her cheek.  She was the storm. She could feel its power thundering through her veins, taking her mind away from the ground and upwards into the … More Restraint (From the Archives)

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!
