I had so many plans, and yet... The tonsillitis refused to clear properly, I returned to work after my sick-line and finished my antibiotics. It was too much, I wasn't ready. Then I was off again. Then back again, and just as I started to think I knew what I was doing the confusion returned, … Continue reading Persistent
I write a lot. I have nearly two Masters degrees, one in Creative Writing, and yet, I absolutely loathe needing to write Covering Letters for jobs. But, given that I am a writer, I thought it might be worthwhile to discuss the relationship between the jobs world and writing. What is a Covering Letter?

So it's almost the end of August but Scotland hasn't realised that it's technically still summer... Back to the ice age for us, sadly. I'm sitting here trying to do work and read but keep getting distracted by recipes and studyspo on Pinterest. Alas, there's always tomorrow. Did I mention I'm cold?

The unemployment rate is ridiculously high in Glasgow... apparently nothing's changed in the last five years, even despite the massive increase in … Continue reading When real life hits
