Day 30 – The last day

Day 30 – The last day

So, the last day of the project. Time for me to analyse how it went, and think about what to do next…. Did I achieve my aim? The aim of the project was to write something every day for 30 days (with a few rest days allowed). I’ve done that, and the results are on … Continue reading

Day 29 – The many faces of Vegas

Day 29 – The many faces of Vegas

For some reason today I was chatting about Las Vegas – it reminded me that there’s so much to it, and I was inspired to spend today’s 20 minutes conjuring up a few images of the infamous city in America. Las Vegas means many things to many people. To some it’s a haven of gambling, … Continue reading

Days 25 to 28 – The quiet place

Days 25 to 28 – The quiet place

I’ve been away for a few days without any time to write. This piece is based on a garden I visited while I was away. The garden of the stately home was vast, stretching in all directions. It had carefully manicured gardens with trimmed hedges and precise edges. It had statues at the corners, all … Continue reading

Day 24 – Career change

Day 24 – Career change

I feel like I want to write about work on this blog, but I keep deleting every sentence that I start on the subject as it never seems to say quite the right thing. I’m never sure whether to write about work generally or work as it applies to me, and I keep changing my … Continue reading

Day 23 – Time

Day 23 – Time

At the start of another busy day, when I know I’m not going to have any “spare” time today, I’m wondering about time.  We are all given the same amount of time, yet we don’t all achieve the same with that time, and many of us rush round like headless chickens trying to fit in … Continue reading

Day 22 – The garden

Day 22 – The garden

The tree at the back of the garden stood proudly. It was an oak tree and had been there long before the houses had been built. Its thick trunk and rough bark protected it against the elements. It overlooked the garden and the gardens of neighbouring houses. A squirrel appeared from nowhere, bouncing across the … Continue reading

Day 21 – The shadow

Day 21 – The shadow

There is a shadow in the corner of the room. It’s always looking at me, reminding me of its presence. Sometimes when the sun is shining the shadow seems more friendly, as if it’s enjoying the sun and loosening up a bit. But most of the time it just lurks in the corner, growling like … Continue reading

Day 20 – A rest from writing

Day 20 – A rest from writing

Today a rest. A pause for thought. And a wooden penguin. 🙂 I can’t believe it’s day 20 already! I don’t want to stop doing this, I enjoy it… I’ve got a busy 10 days ahead, so might not post daily even if I write daily. Quite a lot of inspiring places and people to … Continue reading
