Okay, so I disappeared for a while. Sorry about that. Between exams and moving back home for the summer and job hunting and NaNo guilt, blogging fell to the back of my agenda. But now I am back and have a few free moments to blog. Yay! First, my final update for NaNoWriMo 2013. All … Continue reading Winners, Losers and that Post-NaNo Feel.

It is set fifteen or so years after the events of Queen of Hearts. Also JOIN US here!!!! Read Part 1 before you forge too far ahead! … Continue reading Reminiscence, Part 2.

Terrible name, I know. And I apologise. If anyone can think of something catchier, let me know. I had a thought. Now that my main WIP is finished (sort of) and with uni, I find I have less time to write for myself than I would like, I've turned my focus to short stories.
