Finding Everyday Inspiration: I Hate My Body

Part of WordPress’s writing course Finding Everyday Inspiration. When I plagued my readers with the inquiry what I should write about, Michael from Morpethroad came up with a topic I never considered before: “Your body – how you see it, have used it, have cared for it, how it’s regarded by others.” That’s an appropriate occasion

Developing Your Eye II: Movement (Maybe)

Part of WordPress’s photography course Developing Your Eye II. Today’s task is to capture movement, which is pretty tricky because I live in the middle of nowhere (well, we have a supermarket, so almost in the middle of nowhere).

Finding Everyday Inspiration: Consistency is a Hobgoblin

Part of WordPress’s writing course Finding Everyday Inspiration. Continuing to take clues from my readers, here’s a suggestion by David Bennett (hello and thanks!). The suggestion isn’t a suggestion (wait, read on). But I can easily recast it into one! David originally thought along the lines “anything to get the writing juices going” (I really shouldn’t get so
