It is. Or it was. 1 October 2020. Yes, yesterday. I forgot. It happens. I'm old enough to not worry about the little things. And what is the theme for this lovely little international day for oldies? The decade of Healthy Ageing (I always have to look up whether to put that 'e' in there), … Continue reading Older Persons Day?
The general consensus to the question about whether to put a trigger warning on a book seems to be 'No' based on the responses to the last post, which got a lot of comments. But that doesn't mean I can get away with not using the overt design features to warn and advise. Starting from … Continue reading Trigger Warnings — Two
There's a lot of stuff around the world that's stopped for this year, but when I found out the TDF was going ahead, I adapted my routine to ensure I got to see at least some of it. Okay, all of it. No sleep, no proper meals, a complete change of schedule. Except the writing, … Continue reading TDF

Hmmm, might have been a while since I posted. The good news is that I've almost finished the editing on the story for submission (oh, last week? Well, this week it will be submitted -- not out of time yet). I'm sure I spend more time editing than doing the first draft (even if the … Continue reading Which Way?
There are so many shows on telly and other tubes about houses, restoration, renovations, and so on, that I don't expect to see some of the things I see. Looking at houses for sale, looking at how people do nice stuff to make their homes attractive, and the things that stick out to me aren't … Continue reading Timber and Decks
It's been on the backburner for a while, and as I have so much trouble staying online for more than half a minute at a time, this is what you get. It's a bit of fun, and one day it may be a real story. This is how my stories start life: Two: Robbers, Roos … Continue reading An Idea
For the re-opening of the shearers I cut my hair. It was long. Now it's not. Mostly. There's that one bit ... Or maybe a few chunks Back there Unseen From this side. Whoops! Maybe I should do something else with it ...
