Can anyone tell me a blockbuster famous novel they have read with a main character that was either gay or lesbian? Don’t worry, I’ll wait whilst you scratch your head to think… still haven’t thought of one? No. Me neither. Anyone else got an issue with that? Because I really do.

This week, your challenge is to write a piece about death row. It can be from any perspective, and about anything, as long as it is linked to death row.
Here’s mine: [Read more…] about #Writespiration 61 Death Row
This week is all about the list. Write a story about a list. Any list you like, maybe its THE list, her list, or his, or both of theirs, maybe its a good list, or an evil list, or a list of chores. Can’t wait to see what you come up with.
Last week’s writespiration was all about fairy tales and what happened after, happily ever after. I owe you a story for that, I’ve cheated and loosely incorporated last weeks theme with this weeks. [Read more…] about Writespiration #60 The List
I perpetually struggle for time. I missed my writespiration by a day last week, and I am writing this post far too late on Sunday night. Time is a constant problem for me and most working authors I know. Which is why I’m going to tell you about sprint writing.
How do I balance, full-time employment, with being a mum, wife, keeping a house, trying to stay fit and healthy so I don’t have a heart attack, write novels, and keep a blog? Basically, I can’t.
Much as I’ll swear blind I’m superwoman, apparently, I’m not. Go figure.
My delightful off sprung has decided sleeping is for the week. Oh, how I adore his wide-eyed insomnia-riddled brain. We’re zombieing our way through sleepless night after night. Which means I’m flagging more than usual.
Blogs are late or, non-existent and so is my motivation. So my writing BFF Ali and I have been trying something new together. Sprint writing.
If you haven’t tried sprint writing before, what are you even doing with your life?

A few weeks ago I wrote a writespiration based on ‘your first time’ this week I’m flipping it on its head and asking you to write about the last time you did something.
I’m not a quitter. Sure, I’ve tried things, decided I didn’t like them and stopped. But rarely do I start something with the intention of seeing it through to completion and then quit. It’s not in my nature. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t had a few last times. All the last times I’ve experienced were raw with emotion. If I made it far enough to have a last time, then I’d stuck at whatever it was I was doing – which means it’s was in my life for a long time.
I can remember one last time vividly. So rather than a story this week you have an anecdote: [Read more…] about Writespiration #51 The Last Time
