So, the last time I blogged was on August 6th. THAT SEEMS FOREVER AGO. Those were the days of summer + heatwaves + going to shops purely coz they have air con. I don’t normally take breaks on this blog, and if I’m honest, this one was entirely unplanned. Time ran away with me over… Continue reading On summer + sadness
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Last year, I had three goals, and I achieved two of them, which I’m PRETTY darn pleased about. (Although, IMO you can never read too many books). This year my goals are a little more specific. 1 // Get a Tattoo So, this is the goal that I didn’t get to in… Continue reading 2018 Goals

So, I have an agent. I still can’t quite believe I’m writing that sentence, and that it’s true. Here’s a rambling blog post on how that happened. August 2016: I wrote the first draft of an article for the absolutely amazing website, Disability in Kidlit, about the importance of representation and hypermobility–a disability that I… Continue reading The Incredibly Unbelievable Story of How I got my Agent.
BOOOKS: I read a total of 17 books, which is 12 more than my target this month. I read three graphic novels this month; The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Volume 1: Squirrel Power, Nimona and Lumberjanes, Vol. 5: Band Together. They were brill, and made my work breaks 1000% times better. Next I picked up Alice Jones: The Impossible… Continue reading So Long, May | Wrap Up
There’s not much else to say other than I have typed ‘THE END’. Here’s what that looked like: That’s my main goal done and dusted! I also participated in Camp NaNoWriMo in April, and I LOVED the fact that you can mark hours rather than word counts–it helped me so much! NEXT GOAL: celebrate. With chocolate… Continue reading Stage 4: DRAFT COMPLETE!!
This month, I’ve decided to change things up a little with my April wrap up. I kind of want to wrap up my entire month–from reading to writing to everything in-between. Books before Looks: This month I read a grand total of: 11 books, which is 6 more then my goal. I read Lumberjanes, Vol.… Continue reading How you doing, April? | Wrap Up
Around a year ago today I published this post. It was all about the 25 things I wanted to do before 25, and written just before I turned 23. Well, in a couple of days, I turn 24 (which means, I’m an proper, PROPER adult now, right?), so I thought I’d do a little update. Here’s… Continue reading Update: 25 things before 25.
This post is a little late this month, because I have been spending all of my spare time writing. I started it New Years Day. In January, I wrote half a book. In February, I stalled slightly. I was really happy with everything I’d written so far, but I couldn’t quite work out the ending.… Continue reading Stage 3: Draft 1.5 | Writing
In January, I wrote half a book. Which is a pretty big achievement, for me. I’m normally a slow, messy drafter, but this book just seems to be pouring out of me. I have a sort of plan RE how it’s all going to end (but that could change, at any time.) It’s a first draft… Continue reading Stage 2: Draft 1 | Writing
