Traveling on Christmas Eve

It’s probably the first time I’m traveling on Christmas Eve. Or, at least, the first time I’m traveling alone. I’m going to Birmingham from London Euston and it baffled me to see how many people were in the train station, traveling so close to Christmas Day. Especially since yesterday, during my journey to work, the…

Writing Prompt: Looking Within

I used to write a lot of stories a long time ago. And both my writing and language skills (as in, the amount of beautiful and interesting words I’d use on a daily basis) were far more complex than they are now. So I’d like to make  a list of writing prompts that I find on…

Word of the Week – Sundry

The Word of the Week is sundry Sundry. sundry. Just because I have never heard of it before. Yes, yes, I know, I probably should have. I’ve heard it from the Geek and Sundry youtube channel.
