That Blog Life

Temporary Goodbyes – Woeful To FroFull

I am logging out of all social media and my blogsĀ (this one and the other one) for the next couple of weeks. Of course, I’m worried I’ll miss stuff, that I’ll be disconnected from things I love and that might inspire me. I’ll miss moments that mean so much to others that mean something to me. But remember there was life before the internet was accessible in our hands 24/7.

Goodbye Woeful to FroFull, Hello Woeful Writes

You’ll now find all my fiction writing on Woeful WritesĀ because one blog isn’t enough for this gal. Actually, I’m a little overwhelmed with the idea of having to fill 2 blogs with content but hey ho, what else am I doing with my time. When I say “have to” I know I don’t have to but I feel like if I am taking up space on the web I might as well use it. What’s the point of an empty blog? The first few posts are being transplanted from blog posts I’ve already written here but brand new content will…

My 1000 Word Project #6

“Hi.” She didn’t say it in a friendly way but he looked up as he knew that voice. He had yearned to hear that voice again. “Right back atcha.” He smiled hopefully. “I didn’t see you up there.” “If I’d realised that, I wouldn’t have said anything.” She looked away hoping he would now go away. But he felt he needed to plead his case, explain the inexplicable. “Please don’t be like that.” “Like what?” “Like that.” “I’m not being like anything.” They’d had this conversation before. Sierra frustrated him to the point of absolute distraction. He hated that she…

50 Posts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I haven’t quit my blog yet, yay!!! I’ve invested a little money and a lot of time into this blog so to let it go to rack and ruin would be an immense shame. However, I’m still surprised that I’m as enthusiastic as I was when I started researching hosting, registering domain names, writing my first blog post, taking pictures etc. The novelty definitely hasn’t worn off yet of being able to say “Oh yea, I’ve got a blog.” I was daunted, excited and completely naive to what I was actually setting out to do when I started. Sometimes…

Song of the Month

Song Of The Month – April 2017 – Gust Of Wind by Pharrell Williams

LINK TO THE VIDEO I love this song so much. I think it got a bit overshadowed by Happy and Get Lucky but honestly, I think it’s better. I have a habit, when I love a song, to play it on repeat. For hours at a time and this is one of those songs for me. I actually based a whole chapter of one of my stories around this song I like it so much. But if you don’t know this song, you should be ashamed of yourself! Or listen and get to know it… Follow me on YouTube to…

My 1000 Word Project #4

Here we go again! I don’t remember where this week’s idea came from but I really liked it (if I do say so myself). The premise is basically that you have to ruin the biggest day of someone’s life to save the world. I wrote my first 1000 words of this story but I’m not completely happy with them, not because the premise isn’t good, I think it is but because I have a lot of ideas and even after writing this, I keep changing my mind about the direction it’s going. So in short, the idea works for me,…

My 1000 Word Project #3

So I decided this week to try to write a romance story. It’s a hard genre for me to share as I feel like there is an assumption that it must be about me, something that has happened to me and it must be real, well more real than a story about aliens and fairies. I don’t think that you always need to bear bare bear (?) bare your soul with everything that you write but you need to put a part of your soul into everything you write. Maybe that’s why I’ve never felt full satisfaction from my writing…

Hello 2017

I don’t hate everything! I just really like this shirt my sister got me for Christmas and wanted to share. I actually think 2017 will be a good year personally and I hope the global mess that was 2016 will start to resolve itself, I’m not naming any names but it might rhyme with frump and grexit… Nearing the end of 2016 I decided to make some changes in my life. Not massive changes like quitting my job to go travelling and be a free spirit but fairly big ones like shaving all my hair off and starting a blog.…

My 1000 Word Project #2

I felt so positive after sharing my last 1000 words and was completely serious about doing it on a regular basis so here I go again. I was tempted to carry the story on from last time but I just wasn’t quite feeling it so I’ve started again. As you may notice, I have a thing about the more sci-fi, fantasy type story. Who doesn’t love a bit of The Hunger Games as jolly bedtime reading? It does feel a bit rushed to me but it also doesn’t take a long time to write a thousand words. I’ve found giving…

The First 4 Weeks

So 4 weeks ago, I went through with chopping all my hair off and deciding to try to be a better me. I thought I knew what this entailed but it is going to be a much longer journey than I think I could have ever anticipated. This is a lifelong change that confirms to me that your life is a work in progress. Let’s look at the main things I’ve been working on. WRITING I’ve done some writing, not my best work, but I overcame a fear and published it for the world to see, if anyone comes across…
