I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?

  The woman looked down at the ruins for a long time,   as the stone crooned its endless song.   ‘The journeys end,’ she thought…   ‘but not over.’   And she settled down in the rough grass to … Continue reading

Tourmaline Visions (17)

   The raven took wing before knowing why, he felt the call catch and tug as he moved along and inside the barriers of air and earth. The copper tang in the wind,  ruffling through his feathers,  a distinct change from the … Continue reading

  The thief shut his eyes tight and clutched his cape, pulling it tight across his chest. The urchin looked at him calmly and beckoned with one  sapling arm. ‘Come farther into the forest. We need to speak without the … Continue reading

  “The road goes ever on…” She had read that in a book somewhere and never thought much about it. Until now. Now all she could do was think, while plodding steadily on. How are we all tangled together in … Continue reading
