"This is the year I stick around," Jane mused to herself. It was a promise she made herself every year around Christmas, though never the same date around Christmas and almost never on the day itself. Despite feeling the need of routine to prove her point, the rest of her existence had become utterly detached … Continue reading #25yearsonearth: Jane (Cracked Pins/The Lifters) Short
(For those on my Instagram, you might see me posting a lot of digitally 'rejuvenated' images at the moment as I approach the big 25, along with quotes or references to old stories I've written that I'm fond of. Despite being a favourite character of sorts, this fella never had a proper story, so I … Continue reading “Pandapa”, the Sock Panda: #25yearsonearth

The last in this list has since been converted from a written to musically backed poem (a song, if you're being generous), which you can hear on the Soundcloud link below to my Dude … Continue reading Poem Bank 15/12/17
I've had a couple of visiopoems banked on my device which need to be exhibited for reading pleasure, but also to make room on said device. These have been available on my Instagram for a while but I do keep meaning to put them here for sake of equity! Enjoy. More writing coming soon. x

Geoff was sure this was the end. He was now being stolen away with a rogue team of robotics, which had been a delirious and unaware decision, having only just come into consciousness. Behind them, no doubt, was a team of expert robotic assassins. He was their bartering chip, though somehow he thought his value … Continue reading Nanowrimo ‘17: Race (to the end…)
