This is a piece of free-writing I did a little while ago. Spark word: bell. Time: 10 minutes. “So,” the cloaked figure whispered, “this is where they found her. Bloodless and naked, except for a necktie around her-” “Dong!” “-around her neck,” continued the cloaked figure, irritably. “No one knows-” “Dong! Dong-dong!” “-why she was placed here…” He looked pleadingly up to heaven as there was more violent donging. “Oh, for pity’s sake!” he snapped. […]

By the way, I have been featured as a guest blogger on http://www.diaryofanocd.wordpress.com. Find me here: http://diaryofanocd.wordpress.com/guest-blogging/maria-this-is-my-ocd-tell-me-yours/ My dad gave me a lift to work. “I’m sorry,” I said, as I closed the door. “What for?” asked dad, doing driverly things. “I’m not sure. Being a bit late? Making you go ever so slightly out of your way? I don’t know, but I’m sorry.” “That’s all right,” said dad as he drove along. Silence. “I’m […]

Warning: long.   It was Thursday and I was meeting a friend for lunch. Like me, she is partial to mugs and notebooks, so we skipped into Tottenham Court Road Paperchase. Lovely! Mugs, notebooks, ribbons, pom-poms – everything a girl could want! We looked at pretty things, we looked at useless things. We looked at pretty useless things. Then we looked at this: We both have OCD. Normally, I can make a joke about it. […]

Ciao a tutti! Come stai? As you can probably tell, I have come back from another one of my exciting jaunts to climates foreign, this time: Sardegna, Italia! In other words, I have been to Sardine Isle, aka Sardinia. Interestingly, Sardinia is not actually named after the fish. And I ate no sardine out there. Tru fakt. What I did do in Sardinia was drink plenty of the local vino. I (accidentally) went on a […]
