Boys a dear! If ever there was a way for life to get in the way of writing plans, moving house would have to be top of the list. This past week, Joseph Robert and I have been heaving heavy loads, scrubbing, reporting repairs and unpacking. This has inevitability put both of our writing commitments on the back burner – for at least a week or so.

A new writers' pad in the making.

A new writers’ pad in the making.

 

Among many things, I can’t wait to get our library out of storage, where our beloved books have been residing in cardboard boxes for the past half a year while my hubby and I relocated from London and got ourselves organised in Belfast. Hopefully, now that we’re settled, we’ll be getting back into open mic poetry events, reading through our backlog of submissions sent for Bindweed Magazine Issue 5 and promoting our own work – keep reading for more updates on my latest poetry collection, Chemotherapy for the Soul coming soon!
