How could a hand, a hand that is mine, Have achieved such a feat as this? Impossible – yet here is the head, cut and quite dead, Here is the head in my fist. ~ How could a thought, a thought so grotesque, Get into my dreary old head? Absurd – yet here is the … Continue reading Murder Me (2006)
22 September 2020 “Procrastination is just fear.” This is something my creative writing teacher (Tracy) said in one of the videos I watched today. I think it’s partly true, but I think that laziness also has something to do with procrastination. Fear and laziness… a killer combo if ever there was one.

21 September 2020 I wrote a short story last night. I only planned to start it today, but I was sitting watching Criminal: UK (it’s good, you should try it) when all of a sudden the first line popped into my head and I couldn’t ignore it.

It’s probably going to be difficult not to edit what I write (thanks OCD) but I’m going to take Tracy’s advice and just allow my … Continue reading “Morning” Pages
