Word of the Week – Accomplish

Looking forwards as we start a new week and a new month, my chosen Word of the Week "Accomplish" is an exhortation to set goals and strive to achieve something. To set oneself a challenge, to determine a course. It is wise, in setting goals, to accept that we can still accomplish something even if… Continue reading Word of the Week – Accomplish

Prescience

Not a quote of the week, but a word of the week: Prescience (noun) - foreknowledge/foresight I've been working hard on my knitting through the week and I am getting very close to completing the knitting part.

Stories for a spring sky

The days are most definitely getting longer here in Norfolk and we are having our fair share of bright days, although accompanied by most cyclists' least favourite conditions - wet and windy. All in all it is behaving pretty much exactly as you'd expect for a British March. It is the weather that makes me… Continue reading Stories for a spring sky

Landscapes, wheatfields

Last Saturday was my second trip to the Castle Writers' group at Norwich Castle Museum and this time we covered the topic of landscape and how the setting can act like another character within your writing. This is a concept that I will have to work on because logic dictates that the landscape needs people… Continue reading Landscapes, wheatfields

Irresistible textures, unreachable stars

This week I have been looking through old notebooks; for what is the point of making notes if you don't go back every so often and read them? Two looming items have prompted this trawl: I need to get a new notebook sorted out because I'm down to the final five pages in the book… Continue reading Irresistible textures, unreachable stars

Inspiration and a Sopwith Camel

It has been a funny old week, with me veering wildly between a total lack of inspiration and an outpouring of inspiration that didn't know where to stop. Not the kind of week where I have been able to get things under control; and when I say "things" I mean my head. There is a… Continue reading Inspiration and a Sopwith Camel

Quote of the Week – Shakespeare

Start the year with Shakespeare, of course, and words from "The Tempest" which have blown into my mind this January morning. Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits, and Are melted into air, into thin air; And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers,… Continue reading Quote of the Week – Shakespeare
