This is not Love

February 14th, 2019

What we have, this burning of spirits and need for each other, this wonderous thing is not love. Love the insipid, love the overly kind and love the blinder. We are not bound by each other.

No what this is is something more than that and never – less – but it is not all pervading or clinging.

We do not drown in each other, we are not smothered.

Instead we are amplified and carried on waves of self discovery mutual and beautiful.

This is not Love, it is something Truer.

Happy New Year 2019

January 7th, 2019

It’s that time of year again when I start to think about my writing schedules and what I want from publication etc… for a start this year instead of waiting for midnight and just starting to sort it all out as the festivities began to die down… I watched a film and went to bed and then didn’t bother the next day or the next and gave myself the space of the 12 days of Christmas just to be. Well that’s not entirely true I had a lot of family around and it was harder work than work but I did not layer on any extra stress where my writing was concerned.

And this I think has been a very good thing :)

I have some large writing projects coming up in 2019 including being a publisher so it is all systems go!

So what do I have planned for the coming year?

1) try traditional publishing for some of my writing

2) sort the blogs out as they are rather out dated in many respects

3) do something for Independent Press Day

4) finish the first wave of the pandora prose boxes and pop them out at events

5) make the second wave of the pandora story boxes

6) find more events for flash fiction and story telling

7) type up and edit stuff written in long hand

8) find a writing group I can just go to and not run

9) make story starters and various other writing exercises available

And last but not least – oh no definitely not least!

10) Launch the Punk Universe website

And that is quiet enough to be getting on with so I shall now disappear to actually do some of it!
