In writing, there are always new goals to strive toward. There are also always new ways to feel less than.
I’m not a real writer if I’m only writing for work. I’m not a real writer if I’m writing genre fiction, or if I’m writing flash fiction. I’m not a real writer if I’m unpublished. I’m not a real writer if I don’t have a book.
Luv’d #THIS…! !!!

I’m sure there was a time when I thought there was a process you needed to have in place before you could write. A distinct location or a certain amount of time.

Game Over (Español)
En el fondo de la calle se perdía el sonido de sus pasos. No le quedaba mucho tiempo para alcanzar su objetivo y, lo peor, de ello dependía su muerte. Quien me lee pensará que estoy loco: ¿puede alguien correr sabiendo que perderá la vida?
Pues sí, lo deseaba desde que supo que, todo aquel que hubiese muerto ese día, sería recompensado. Pensaba en eso cuando decidió correr con todas las fuerzas que le quedaban. Corrió tanto y tan veloz, que ni siquiera escuchó las campanas que anunciaban la medianoche, y con ello, el inicio del nuevo día. Su carrera lo ensordeció hasta el punto que no sentía que lo llamaban por el nombre gritándole que no valía la pena. Algunos corrieron a su lado, otros intentaron cortarle el camino tratando de disuadirlo, pero saltaba desenfrenado sin ver aquel cartel que, delante de él, anunciaba “Game…

Coven of the Wolfa“The chief duties of the ancient Priesthood were first, to find out the points of contact or unity between man and higher existences than himself; next, to discover the laws of man’s being, and teach him to adjust his actions to the will of those higher existences; and finally, to invoke or solicit their aid for man in the performance of his earthly mission.”

Unearthing the Gift
RWS Tarot Centennial Edition
I’m here with a fall recap/check-in. I did not get to write in the blog for September’s Walking With Mary Journey. But I did share about it over on my Instagram account. Halfway through, or maybe towards the beginning, I had a pretty bad cold that left me needing to rest a lot in order to recuperate. During the following weeks, reading about other’s journeys with Mary and Hettienne’s guidance over on her blog helped me continue the journey.
Only in stopping
can I see the blades turning
above the strip farms.
I blink out the frequency,
one eye shuttered and released.
On Saturday 31 August, I’ll be leading a walk along the Stainforth and Keadby canal to the eastern edge of South Yorkshire, taking in the rich, varied landscape between Thorne and the Humberhead Peatlands, and the 22 turbine wind farm that rises from this flat terrain. Along the way, I’ll be reading poems informed by these complex, layered environments, and discussing the history and ecology of Thorne Moors (and the role of the autodidact and eco-warrior William Bunting in securing its future).
Invisible MirrorsI will be hosting the fourth Art, Ecology and Science Fiction talk at SVA on Saturday November 23rd from 6 – 9 pm. Our guest will be the writer, publisher and musician Mark Pilkington, founder and editor of Strange Attractor press and the author of Mirage Men (2010). Mark will present an historical overview of psychotronic devices: “the radiant collision point of witchcraft, art and technology”.Mark’s talk will be followed by a performance by Luminous Foundation, his collaboration with Urthona‘s Niel Mortimer. £5 on the door (or £8 for a joint ticket for the talk and performance).

I first learned to knit when I was around 6 or 7, taught by my ever-patient Mum and Gran. As the years have gone by, I have enjoyed learning different techniques and styles, but I recently realised that I had never given much thought to the history of the craft that I love so much! As an ex history student, I had to do something about this, so I spent a little time learning about how knitting has developed through the ages and I thought that I would share my findings here.
Experiential Pagan: Ahnesti
I know many Republicans. Well, I knew many Republicans. They stopped talking to me about anything somewhere in the Obama years. They lost their shit in conversations where I asked whether there was no way to stop so many crazies from shooting people in schools and churches. One person stood in MY house and proclaimed the latest shooting (back then) as a “convenient false flag for Obama to come take our guns.” Note, please – nobody came and took her guns.
I hear so much crazy alarmism – and no not from my side. I hear all kinds of outrage about “respecting the office of the Presidency” from people who drew pictures of Obama with a noose, for pity’s sake? What the fuck, GOP, ok? Just what the fuck?

Writing can involve periods of feast or famine when it comes
to output, and many writers can find themselves in situations where they have
largely ceased to write and create.
During such times, it can take a lot for a writer to get back on the
wagon and start moving forward again.
