on learning and intuition

September 8, 2019

Woke thinking of this poem today so decided to go with it and post. It’s too easy to step away from the path of following intuition; the ego wants to start taking over saying, ‘ok this is a pattern so now you have to post at 6am every day for consistency blah blah blah’ or ‘ok, van photos are what get the most likes here so we’ll stick with that.’ But one of the things I wanted to do with…

First batch of poetry pamphlets ‘The Slow-Time Traveller’ are now stitched, signed & numbered. The hardback envelopes should arrive in the next few days (I forgot to order them 🤦🏻‍♀️) and then these poems will be winging their way to all you lovely people who ordered the pamphlets (including Patreon subscribers). Huge thanks to everyone who’s ordered or subscribed – it’s what keeps a writer going, and also motivated. Instagram follows & likes are nice but they don’t translate into…

the unloved life

August 20, 2019

EVERYTHING YOU DREAM OF IS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF FEAR. What are you waiting for? A regret-filled life is nothing to be proud of. Maybe this poem says that in a dark way. Maybe it should be more inspirational & cheery but honestly, there’s nothing cheery about unfulfilled potential. If other people cannot see your vision it doesn’t mean you’re wrong, it’s that they’re not you. Be brave. Whatever it is just start taking small steps towards it every…

The Slow-Time Traveller is created…

on storytelling & writing plans

July 14, 2019

As we’ve been stationary in Caerwys for the past two weeks working on van maintenance I’ve had time to reflect on the years spent hunting & foraging across landscapes to discover the truth of my heart. And this week I woke with the realisation that I am The Storyteller, grandmother spider, weaving stories; sometimes through poetry, travel or sound, sometimes through performance or food. At the moment I’m experimenting with the short & longform speculative fiction/dystopian narratives. Futureproof is a…

A writer’s life

October 6, 2018

  A day of writing. Set myself the deadline of finishing the first draft of this novel by the end of the year. And I realise there’s no short cuts or quick fixes – it’s just time served behind the keyboard pouring mind, heart & soul onto white pages, trying not to sabotage or second guess anything, but to write from a place of inspiration and truth. Love writing in the van. Always a new outlook from here – coffee…
