The Little Furry Muse Speaks

The significant human (SH) is ‘tired’. It’s her own fault – she will insist on staying up all day when there are sunny spots to be napped in. All it means is that she oversleeps for my first breakfast, and I have to wake her. I don’t want to wake her, but what can I […]

It’s short story week, so jump straight across to read The Pie of Hate, or read on for a little background on the story. Either way – enjoy! “A sous chef makes a pie. Inside is hatred.” So went the prompt from the Magic Realism Bot, a twitter account that posts random, disjointed ideas that […]

I won, I won! I’d like to thank the little furry muse, chocolate, tea – wait. Sorry, no. Not that sort of award. Although I’m pretty chuffed anyway. The lovely A.S.Akkalon nominated me for a Sunshine Blogger Award (isn’t it cool? And shiny??), and I’m both enormously flattered and a little intimidated, because I feel […]

This week’s short story is a dive into the back story of the BBN – we’re re-joining Kate this time, to see how she’s managing after A Problem of Cats and The Thing in the Drain. She’s now dealing with A Commotion in a Bedroom, or, rather, someone else is trying to make sure she doesn’t find […]

In not very long, I will have a birthday, and I will be 39. I actually wrote a whole blog post about this, musing not just on how the hell I made it this far (honestly, in some ways I’m surprised), but also on how society, as represented by TV, movies, and an uncomfortable proportion […]

It being short story week, please feel free to head straight over to read The Invisible Boy. It’s a BBN story, specifically about the boy Patrick, so you may want to read Saving The Rat and Slipping Through the Cracks first, if you haven’t already. Enjoy! It’s been an interesting sort of week. In the […]

Short story day! We’re heading into some BBN (Big Bad Novel) back story today – read on for a little more about this, or jump straight on over to read The Watchers. I put aside the BBN (Big Bad Novel, if you haven’t been around to discover my lazy dependence on acronyms)  in September, with […]

It’s short story week, and that means you can ignore all this completely and get straight into the good stuff here. Otherwise, read on for a little background. I sometimes joke that twitter is my muse. I may have come rather late to it (I went to set an account up last February, and found I’d […]

The last month has been one of those months, not just for me, but for quite a few people I know. In fact, I think it’d be fair to say it’s been one of those years for lots of people. It always is, in one way or another, isn’t it? And there are things we […]

It’s short story week once again, so here’s a link directly to this week’s story. Otherwise read on below for a bit of a ramble on how the story came about, and what turtles have to do with anything… Last month, some friends invited me to go turtle-nest guarding with them. Obviously I said yes, […]
