If nothing else, writing a novel last holidays was great motivation, because now whenever I sit down to do an assignment I go, “I wrote a novel in just over two months, I can write this 2000 word essay in two days.”

Q and A



Goddamnit Sami.

(Kidding I love you.)

(Now I’m wondering how much of this will actually make sense out of context. Let’s see!)

FIRST — the first two sentences of my current project


She blinked several times in the darkness, letting her eyes focus. 

LAST — the most recently written two sentences of my current project

"Tell me about Charlie." 

And she did. 

(I can basically guarantee that that will be changed when I finally get around to editing the last chapter or two because those two were so rushed.)

NEXT — the next line. meaning i will finish the sentence I’m on and write a new one, which you’ll get.

I don’t think I can really do this one, given I have, essentially, finished it and I only need to edit it. 

Prompt: losing trust — you post a prompt, and i’ll write three sentences based on that prompt, set in the same time/setting as my current project

(Okay, so, this is technically something that happened in the novel that I’m twisting/elaborating upon for this prompt, but I don’t know how else to go about writing it if I don’t incorporate the plot line.) 

She had never been quick to open up, and even with him, it had taken her time. He had given her time, and she had let herself believe that it meant that he would stay, that she had found someone in this town who she could trust. Out of everyone she had met, she had chosen him, and now, heart in her throat, she could only wonder how she had made such a terrible mistake. 

THE END — i’ll make up an ending, or post the ending if i’ve written it

(Here, have the last section, it’s not even a hundred words long. Again, this is something I’ll probably change when I get around to editing. I haven’t touched this chapter at all since I wrote it and I’m realising now that I really do not like the way this is written.)

She sat on the steps outside the front door the following morning, watching the sun rise and cast its warm glow over the town. She was the first to wake up, but she was followed shortly after by Beth, who had stayed overnight and was to drive home today. The older girl sat down on the steps beside her, and they sat in silence for a good while before Beth spoke.

"Tell me about Charlie."

And she did.

BEFORE THE BEGINNING — three sentences (or more) about something that happened before the plot of my current project.

(I’m using this as an excuse to write a scene that I wanted to put in there but it never quite fit. And I’m writing it in present tense because, had I fit it in, it would have been a flashback and all my flashbacks are in present tense. For the record.)

The darkness is surrounding her, pulling her down. Her body aches, but it feels far away, as do the sounds she is aware of somewhere in the back of her mind. Someone is saying her name, but it sounds far away, and she feels like she’s sinking underwater. The further she sinks, the further away the voice sounds, and the pain becomes less real. She wants to let the darkness drown her, to lose grip on the pain and let it all drift away, but the voice sounds gentle and kind, beckoning to her from somewhere beyond the empty darkness. It is speaking to her, words that she cannot understand, broken up by the familiar sound of her name. She latches onto the voice, and she lets it pull her to the surface.

Where there was darkness, suddenly there is so much light. It’s too bright, and she squeezes her eyes shut against it, but she doesn’t fall back into the darkness. Everything is suddenly real - the pain in her body, pressure against her skin, the sounds of voices and footsteps, and a constant beep, beep, beep. She forces her eyes open, forces herself to focus in the light, on white walls and white coats and expressions of concern and relief. 

Hospital, she realises. She is in a hospital. 

"You’re all right," says a voice, different to before, and she follows the sound to its source - a man in a white coat by her side. "You’re all right, Kimberly. You were in an accident, but you’re going to be okay." 

Accident. Lights, screaming, screeching, pain. 

"Dad," she croaks, and she sees the expression on the man’s face change. 

"I’m sorry," he says, and she hears nothing after that but the sound of her heart, pounding loudly in her ears, and the shaky breaths that turn into sobs. 

POV — something that’s already happened, retold from another character’s perspective.

(…Just for the hell of it, let’s go with the last scene of the novel that I posted before.)

The house was quiet when she woke the next morning. It was rare for her to be the first up, but after the events of the past few days, it did not come as a surprise. Beside her, Kimberly lay asleep, chest rising and falling steadily with each breath, and it was good to see her looking so at peace, softening the lines of her face. Beth climbed out of bed as slowly as she could manage, dragging the sheets up to the other girl’s neck before creeping out of the room.

The front door ajar, she realised when she got downstairs, and she could see Emma sitting outside on the porch. She hesitated for a moment, before pushing the door open and stepping outside. Emma glanced at her as she did, but only for a second before returning her gaze to the view of the town. 

It was unusual, to see the young girl so quiet; Beth had only ever known her to be excitable and bright. However, nothing about this situation was usual, and it was impossible to tell if any of them would ever be as they were before ever again. She couldn’t begin to imagine what was going on in the child’s head, processing the impossible events. Perhaps it was hard on her, being so young, but perhaps her age had the opposite effect. Perhaps having a child’s open mind and imagination left her better equipped than any of them to cope. 

"Tell me about Charlie," she said gently, after a few moments of silence, and she did.

(I’ll be perfectly honest, a part of me is tempted to replace the ending and tell it from this perspective. I may have gotten slightly carried away with this.) 

Thank you!

Q and A

Doctor who!



  • Favourite Female: DONNA. 
  • Favourite Male: Probably Nine. Though there are a lot of males to choose from.
  • 3 Other Favourite Characters: Craig Owens. Rose Tyler. Ten. 
  • 3 OTPs: Rose/ALL THE DOCTORS. River/Eleven. Jenny/Vastra.
  • Notp: Amy/Nine. 
  • Funniest character: Um. Nine? Probably Nine. Although all of them are pretty funny.
  • Prettiest character: Clara Oswin Oswald. 
  • Most Annoying Character: I know there were points where Amy started to annoy me, but I don’t know if I’d classify her as the most annoying character. However, I can’t think of anyone else off the top of my head. 
  • Most badass character: River Song. 
  • Character I’d like as my BFF: Either Donna or Rose. 
  • Female Character I’d Marry: Clara. She is sweet, even though I sort of feel like she hasn’t been given a lot of character development at all other than in her association with the Doctor. 
  • Male Character I’d Marry: Ten. 
  • Character I hate/dislike/least like: I can’t think of any non-major characters at the moment, so I’m going to say out of the companions, and that would be Amy (simply because everyone else gets listed before her, sorry Amy). 

Thank you!

do you ever have those moments where you’re catching your friend up on a series and they make a random guess on something that’s going to happen and it’s actually 100% right and you just sit there like

I am in my second year of university and I am still terrified of public speaking. Great.

Q and A

Because a bit of self love and positivity makes everything a bit better :) Once you get this you must say 5 nice things about yourself publicly and then send it to your 10 favourite dragons. Thinking good things about yourself can be hard, but it'll make you feel good, so give it a go! Have fun


You are lovely.

Exceptionally lovely.

Overwhelmingly lovely.

(And I would send this back to you, but I imagine you don’t want to receive it again, so just know that you are one of my favourite people.)

  1. I am empathetic. 
  2. I am a good listener. 
  3. I have been told that I’ve helped people (e.g. by talking them through a tough time). 
  4. I’m reasonably organised. 
  5. I’m happy more often than not. 

You’re so very lovely.

On the one hand, I feel ready for the exam tomorrow. 

On the other hand, I felt ready for the exam yesterday and then came out of it terrified that I’d failed so I don’t know anymore.

Using a new website to watch TV online how about I just run a couple of different virus scans and e-mail all my important documents to myself just to be safe.

  1. meetmeintheskywithdiamondsanswered: project free tv or watchseries :)
  2. battledanceagainsthanson answered:project free tv! just google it - it has everything!
  3. bayobayo answered: well, you can try watching them at cokeandpopcorn.ch…Shhhhhh

I tried project free tv and it just seemed to have a lot of pop-ups so I’m not sure I trust that one. 

Also tried cokeandpopcorn but I couldn’t seem to get it working? And there were pop-ups too but less so than project free tv.
