A musical interlude – Dartington Hall #atozchallenge

When I was about nine (or possibly ten), my family and I went on holiday to Devon. We camped, hiked and played on the beach. At some point during the fortnight, my parents took us to a concert in the evening and I had my one and only experience of listening live to James Galway […]

A-Z blogging challenge – theme reveal 2018

Welcome to this year’s theme reveal for the A-Z blogging challenge. After the previous year’s cathedrals and abbeys, I decided to continue the theme of historical places of the British Isles. With the success of Downton Abbey and The Crown on TV, it would be easy to pick the stately homes of Chatsworth, Blenheim Palace […]

A-to-Z and the book

I’ve signed up again!  Yes, the A to Z blogging challenge beckons and I’ve succumbed. Already, I’m wondering what I’ve let myself in for and if I really can deliver a post a day when I’ve hardly posted anything for months. Why? Because I’ve been super busy working on my book and finally it is […]

A-Z Blogging Challenge – Theme day!

This will be my third year of doing the A-Z blogging challenge. One letter of the alphabet per day, excluding three Sundays, and each letter will be about…… Abbeys and Cathedrals of the UK Since I managed with castles last year, I thought I would take my other great architectural love and expand on it. […]

The Dam – #flashfiction #fridayfictioneers

Welcome! My contribution to this week’s Friday Fictioneers flash fiction – 100 word story – hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. “Keep going,” Sam yelled. “We’ve got to save the town.” The line of stones shifted, some tumbled into the water. Sam’s gang worked hard to shore up the defences. The deadline was five o’clock. White froth […]

#AtoZchallenge – reflections on a month of blogging

I’ve had a breather and it’s time for a little reflection on the A-Z challenge – the 26 posts on castles I wrote for April’s blogging challenge. This year was my second attempt – I participated last year on the theme of inspiration and with this in mind, I chose what I thought was a […]

A-Z blogging theme reveal

So, my chosen theme for the A to Z blog challenge is…. drum roll… fanfare…. Castles. Was that an anti-climax? It could easily have been cathedrals. I’m not an architect, nor a historian, but I love impressive old buildings. I’m in awe of the manpower and ingenuity that went into building such vast structures at […]

A-Z Challenge, the dilemma

  Now do I?  Again!? It’s tempting. I like challenges and it certainly is a challenge. I would need to plan ahead, as we’re on holiday in April. A theme would be useful to help motivate me. I’m kind of themeless at the moment. There is always the random thought of the day, except, by […]

The edifice

This is my first go at Friday Fictioneers – a 100 word flash fiction challenge based on a photo prompt. So here goes….   Where had it come from? Grey haired Farmer Joe couldn’t explain. He spoke on local radio, broadcasting his confusion at the arrival of the edifice in his hay field. Crowds gathered […]

What next?

After the flurry of blogging activity during April, May is quiet, which suits me as I’ve lots of writing and editing to do.  I’ve added a page listing all my A-Z posts on inspiration. As for this blog, I’ve taken a leaf out of my own theme for A-Z Challenge and having a guest. My […]
