No More Excuses

I am not sure if it is laziness, perception, of a time and space measurable phenomena, but it feels like I have gone from documenting the phenomena of my lack of creativity to creatively moaning about it. So, when I haven’t been moaning about my lack of creativity and procrastinating effectively by writing, planning and… Continue reading No More Excuses


M.E. Procrastination and Failure

Some days I feel like I should be saying, in the obligatory UK Big Brother Voice-over Geordie Accent: “day 263 of my writers block and the blank page remains undefeated”. Or perhaps I could open in the Original Series Star Trek style “Captains Log, Star-Date 02-05-5520, still we remain in deep space, no significant features,… Continue reading M.E. Procrastination and Failure

Into the Lions Den

I am struggling creatively, I am not going to hide from that. Even simple technical practice has fallen by the wayside as my motivation has waned considerably in the last month. The clearing of my office and regeneration of my creative space did not ignite a single spark of inspiration, I was relieved, mostly, that… Continue reading Into the Lions Den

Consumption and Creativity

So I am sat here on a sunny Good Friday, Deadmou5 on, and suitably gluten free falafel and a can of cherryade on my desk and I stare around my office which has been cleared if not sorted (a couple of give-away crates)  and looks like a creative space and not a primary school war… Continue reading Consumption and Creativity

Dear Diary: Vlogging, Nipsy Hussle and Breadcrumb Trails

The eagle-eyed will have spotted a set of pictures of Cumbria. A beautiful sunset where I took the full opportunity to take a lot of pictures and experiment with some raw lens effects using a couple of camera phones, although I didn’t have any extra lenses with me because the main purpose was to celebrate… Continue reading Dear Diary: Vlogging, Nipsy Hussle and Breadcrumb Trails

It’s All About Me

One the advantages of having chronic health issues is that it makes me a passive consumer of material (at best), the disadvantage being it renders output next to impossible, which is a bit of an explanatory digression, to explain why I was reading something called “why your blog sucks” in the first place One of… Continue reading It’s All About Me

Thinking Out Loud: Blogosphere

It seems pretty trite and obvious to say its been a while since I posted and rather superfluous and self-serving to witter needlessly about why that has been the case when I have written ad-nauseum about being ill already, see I can bore myself too. Instead I have taken it upon myself to have what… Continue reading Thinking Out Loud: Blogosphere

Poetry Corner: It’s Been a While

A long time ago, in this very place The age before my weary face When the scars were wounds, open and raw And I couldn’t stand the face I saw   When the whisky and tequila reigned down Every look at me was a disdainful frown And to nowhere I was headed fast Kicked, beaten,… Continue reading Poetry Corner: It’s Been a While

Dear Diary: Excuse my tardiness.

Head CT and MRI, Angiogram, treatment for Acute Coronary Syndrome; was that the end of the road? I have no idea, last March my world changed completely, I was losing the battle against depression but December's debacle left me defeated and falling back into the darkness. Physically, day on day, week on week I declined.… Continue reading Dear Diary: Excuse my tardiness.
