It's a shaky vid, but my desk in the new study is shaping up nicely 😊 (featuring 3 mini @corachacha prints, one @laluisarivera, and a much/loved gift from @showyourbones_shop, plus bonus pic of my parents on their wedding day ❤️) #igauthorlife #writersofig #writersofinstagram #writerslife #todaysoffice #deskie #emeraldwitch
Paging through my flickr faves this week, I found some great faces & places to put in stories. And then I put them together and got excited…
What do you think is going on in these?
I’m going with:
Teen witch uses colour-coded music to romance a friendly thief;
A girl who’s only ever lived in the clouds comes down to earth for the first time (and doesn’t know yet that she can’t get back up);
And the girl upside down in the road really shouldn’t have trusted Smug Uniform Girl, and will have to find one rogue shaman in a town of millions if she ever wants to go home again.
Until recently, I hadn’t followed many portrait photographers, but now I’m on the prowl for more. Let me know if you know of any cool ones. My flickr fave page is here, and you can follow me if you’re a, um, Flickrer too.
Do go visit the photographers via the links above – plenty more goodness where these came from.
Coming up soon: Finding stories in: Pinterest Boards. I’ll share the boards I keep for story-ideas, & maybe reveal a few hidden boards I’ve built for works-in-progress. I know it’s hard to use Pinterest and not just get distracted by pictures of Ian Somerhalder, but it is possible. Just.
Currently (re) reading: I Capture The Castle, Dodie Smith.
Currently writing: trying to get started on the next revision of Colour Novel. ‘Don’t Panic’ is the best writing advice I’ve received this week.
Now playing: Warrior in Woolworths, X-Ray Spex.
If my novel was a Beatles playlist, running order would be She Said She Said; Got To Get You Into My Life; For No One; Tomorrow Never Knows.

Deal is: for every 3k, I get 45 minutes of Boreanaz. Turns out rewards like this work better than ‘3k and then you don’t have to write any more’, to which my me would reply ‘But I’m already not writing! Let’s just stay here doing that!’.
Here’s my non-Boreanaz view, the books in reach of my desk. The ones to remind me how to write when I forget.
