A World, Changed (March Update)

I spent a long time debating what to title this blog. “A World in Chaos”. “A World in Panic”. “A World gone mad”. But I decided to go with “A World, Changed”. Because yes, the spread of Corvid-19 is creating a situation unprecedented in the modern world. Quarantine. Social Distancing. Shops and spaces closing down.… Continue reading A World, Changed (March Update)

The worlds fall into place so easily, the description is so vivid it just works. And there are other days that you struggle. Other days that you try… Continue reading Monday Inspiration – Ebbs and Flows

I know you're in the middle of the story right now. You're in the… Continue reading Monday Inspiration – You can Finish
