,Sometimes things break down, or go wrong, and often these can be fixed. But knowing when to quit is also an important skill. It’s important to assess the problem, see if you can work out what is wrong, and then decide if it is worth the time and effort, or cost, to fix it. The … Continue reading Knowing when to quit.
I think I’ve fixed the plug in problem! About a week ago, I moved some widgets about, and replaced a couple. I deactivated some, deleted some. You get the idea. I was tinkering! Then, every time I tried a blog post the screen would go blank. The post uploaded, but Yoast wasn’t working, Jetpack stats … Continue reading Fixed the plug in problem
There’s something not quite right behind the scenes, I think there might be a problem with the blog part of the site. I have no idea what I might have done, but I think I broke it. So, in the interests of diagnostics, I have backed everything up and this is a short blog post … Continue reading I think I broke it
This year, having said a few years ago that I wouldn’t do NaNoWriMo ever again… Here I am, typing at ungodly hours, describing a spaceship, an unexpected planet and landing, and I’m just a little bit ahead of schedule. This is a NaNoWriMo 2018 progress update. So, today I thought I would share a little … Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018 Progress Update
Progress up to today on Spaceship – The Last of Humanity! So far I’m 36% complete for NaNoWriMo 2018. 19 Days remain until the deadline. OK, so I’ve not been brilliant at updating progress. You see, when I first started doing NaNoWriMo, back in 2005, I was a stay at home Mum, running a small … Continue reading Spaceship – The Last of Humanity – Progress Update
A snippet for you… NaNoWriMo 2018 is just about on target. It’s been a bit of a struggle to stay on target so far. Balancing family responsibilities, home life, and work, has been a challenge. But the story is growing, slowly. The ship was old, everyone on board had been born in space. Once sleek … Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018 – On Target
I wasn’t going to do NaNoWriMo this year. Having taken several years off after 8 consecutive winning years, I felt my NaNo time was over. But last week, on November 1st, I started writing. I hadn’t realised how much I miss this. NaNoWriMo 2018, a new beginning. Spaceship – The Last of Humanity isn’t the … Continue reading Spaceship – The Last of Humanity NaNoWriMo 2018
This has been popping up on Facebook again recently. I’m not sure of the provenance or accuracy of the image. On the surface it’s sexist tripe and to be ridiculed. But actually, if you look deeper it’s sound advice. No, wait, hear me out. Take the blatant historical attitude towards women out, and pretend it’s … Continue reading Sexist tripe, or sound advice?
I am debating possibly expanding. No not my waistline, although that seems to be happening all by itself… But that’s another thing. After a facebook conversation and some thought, I wonder if you might be interested in some of my images as prints. I’m thinking around A4, or similar in size, with a card mount. … Continue reading Would you buy prints?
In life, things change all the time, and how we deal with that is so important. Change can be unsettling, but it can also be vibrant and exhilarating. It also often involves making a mess. Right now, we are stripping the wallpaper from the dining room, and it’s making a mess. It’s ugly, feels cold, … Continue reading Making a mess
