     At almost 2am, I have been hit by a flash of inspiration.  I’ve then gone ahead and written a scene filled with wonderful characters set within the most perfect setting.  Something I am incredibly pleased about; a character that I have been writing about for a few years but have not had the right project to put her into, will fit absolutely beautifully into this newly born novel!  Finally, she… Read More

     I am sitting at my desk and looking with delight at the glass window of the book case part of this old bureau that I write at.  Through the glass, on the shelves within, are colours and designs, on the spines of books, so familiar to me.  There are names that brought me great joy in my childhood.  I recognise familiar titles that bring a huge smile to my face,… Read More

I am back for more!  I was quite pleased with my portrait of Barak Obama, which you will find in an earlier article here.  My next subject is legendary actress of the golden age of Hollywood, Bette Davis.  What greater icon of the silver screen, perhaps, than this incredible actress who could cause men to fall in love with her or who would strike fear into any heart with one look from… Read More

    As the end of August approaches, I decided that I needed to invest in a wall planner.  The academic year wall planners are available now and what better time for me to start to chart my literary activities.  I believe that I will manage these better if I can see them on the wall chart, rather than leafing through pages of my diary.     The planner is going to… Read More
