The pesky art of being an author

So I’ve been writing blogs post for a while now. They’re all about the things that keep me and my writing going. There’s blogs about my writing and creative process, and about working towards being publish. There’s tales about my delicious dykiness and luscious lesbianity and how that fits in with the world of books and writing. And there’s posts about the things that keep me grounded and inspired: my bike (Truelove), my fecund garden, and my darling cat who sits next to me when I write (she’s a sweetie, well, when she isn’t biting me because my typing fingers annoy her). They’re all here, along with some stories for you to read.

Vamping and doing it again

A wee story for the lockdown: Locked Down with Lindsay

So, it goes like this- there’s a global pandemic and a third of the world’s population is under some form of lockdown or social restriction; schools are shut down, people are queuing for food, hospitals are overflowing. If I’d written this as a plot premise last September it would have been just another piece if… Continue reading A wee story for the lockdown: Locked Down with Lindsay

Unlearning Structure

Recently I’ve been working on un-learning. As we make our way through life we come across these little patches of wild nonsense that have grown from words other people have sown in our heads and hearts. So, every now and then I take the time to have a good clear-out, to look at the seedlings,… Continue reading Unlearning Structure
