The Moments I Know Magic

The Moments I Know Magic

Despite promising myself I’d try to get an earlier night last night, it reached 2am and I was still on my laptop. After chastising myself I got ready for bed, but my mind was too active. I couldn’t sleep. Cambridge is a quiet place. My room at home is quiet, too: it’s at the back of the house, and looks out over the garden. I can hear pigeons and other birds in the silence, but with double-glazed windows, not a…

A Creative Waste Of Time

A Creative Waste Of Time

For those who weren’t aware, which is probably 95% of my blog readers given that I didn’t mention it, I’m currently away on a camp in the north of England. It’s a Christian camp, actually, which basically means a chance to ask all the difficult questions that you can’t get away with in your usual church or youth group environment because after this week you’ll likely never see these people again. In our evening meeting yesterday, we were creating an…

May and June (Retrospect and Reminiscing #5 / #6)

May and June (Retrospect and Reminiscing #5 / #6)

For health reasons I couldn’t blog yesterday, but that’s fine, because not much happened in May, so I’m lumping it together with June and that way it doesn’t matter that I missed a day, right? It’s also because May’s a weird one to write about – half of what happened was exams or personal, neither of which I tend to discuss on my blog. In these recap posts, I’ve tried not to overshare while still giving a fairly complete overview…

Names And Faces

Names And Faces

When I’m writing stories and I introduce a new character, one of the things I find hardest is matching a name to the face that’s in my head. With Bronwyn, for example, I hunted through literally thousands on baby name websites, and it was only after about three weeks of forcing her to use Wyn that it began to fit her at all. I had a lot of trouble with her. She was a difficult character. Some characters, on the…

The Art Exam – Part 2

The Art Exam – Part 2

It’s what you’ve all been waiting for. Checking my blog every day to read it. (You know, if you subscribed you’d never have that problem). It’s Part 2 of ‘The Art Exam’ … Um hi. I should draw :/ I spend more time rubbing out than I do drawing. How depressing is that? I think I’m going to finish this early. Not good. I really want to listen to music. They should let us. I mean, you can’t cheat in…

The Art Exam (Part 1)

The Art Exam (Part 1)

I’m currently on my lunch break in the middle of a five hour art exam. It’s very depressing and I was getting pretty stressed. So, I decided to keep a running commentary of whatever was going through my mind right then on a piece of paper I found in my pocket. It turned out pretty odd, so I decided to share it with you :) Bazinga! I have paper. Outlet for anger and frustration… I have drawn a line. That…
