Old Blogs Recovered

I wanted to write a story where the main character could be seen as either male or female depending on the wishes or viewpoint of the reader. It seemed an interesting experiment to me to see the reactions of the readers. I’m not sure it worked as the first two people who read the book assumed without question, and didn’t notice the fact that I […]

Well I really thought I’d got the hang of it – but no!

I was doing well. I’d worked out how to do a blog. I’d even worked out how to amend pages on my website. At least I thought so but looking at it, it’s not how I thought I’d left it at all. Then I thought I was spending too long on my phone and I tried to have a break. A period of really feeling […]

Landscapes Near Bath

Some people are people people. I have come to the realisation that I am a place person. I love places as much as I probably should love people. I tried to explain on twitter the other day how much I loved the landscapes near Bath. Trying to find my tweet on there again I searched for Solsbury Hill and realised by looking at all the […]

The iron age ramparts

I was walking in a forest the other day, down an obscure path when I spotted what looked like unmistakable signs of an enclosure of mud in a long rectangular shape – not big enough to be a fort but definitely something. Not really at the top of a hill either but just halfway up a hill. I was trying to get closer to see […]

Web page Developments

Everyday I seem to learn something new about my blog. I’m keeping well away from the technical bits at the moment. Hopefully there’ll be time for that one day. I’ve managed to enter a new page onto my website and I decided to quote extracts from Reviews of Herai. Not all of them made it to Amazon with a combination of the £50.00 spend rule […]

Recommended Books

Someone on twitter asked whether anyone had any Book recommendations to stimulate the mind. I replied with my own book “Herai” because it may not be great but I’m reasonably sure it’s stimulating – it makes you think. Then I felt guilty about my narrow focus of mind and and I replied, without any evidence of appreciation (not even a like) so I don’t feel […]

Successful Authors To Do list (Further Blog Meanderings)

So the pen option at the end seems to let me change the title page – eventually, it is not a simple process. And the + sign sign and blogs and some other messing around gets me to draft blogs so I no longer have to publish half- finished blogs. I’m sure all of you ‘invisible readers’ are greatly relieved. Just need to sort out […]

More Bloggy Trauma

I pressed ‘+’ and ‘post’ and it seemed to bring me here. It’s a major step forward for me and I’ve written it down so I might remember it next time. Next I’m going to investigate the three dots above to see if there’s a share option there. Not being able to share does seem to be a major downfall in this whole process. No […]

Learning to Use my Blog

Somehow I pressed on a button and I ended up here writing a blog, with no plan. I’m flying by the seat of my pants. I’ve got to write now because I’m here and may never get here again.🤣 Then, I left it for a second and instead of the blog was on a page about a man walking down Oxford Street wearing only a […]
