I do this thing where I become fixated on a particular outfit or an item of clothing. It could be anything, a little skirt with a particular type of stitching, a top with certain coloured stripes, a jacket with a unique texture... the image will be so clear in my mind, but unfortunately, often the… Continue reading Fashion Fixation / Writing Challenge Day 30
I've finally done it. I've applied for my provisional license. I might be five years late compared to most people, but that's okay. When it arrives in the post, I won't be able to delay learning to drive any longer. Driving lessons have never been a main priority for me.

Apparently, when slums were demolished, only the top layers were erased in many… Continue reading Exposing the Cobbles Beneath & Romanticising the Past / Writing Challenge Day 19
I've been thinking a lot about how at the minute I write mostly about myself. Dolly Alderton mentioned that she has finally decided to stop writing about herself and her life in the podcast I was listening to yesterday (Ctrl Alt Delete by Emma Gannon - would highly recommend). Then a few hours later a… Continue reading Do I write about myself too much? / Writing Challenge Day 18
