Freefall

23 March, 2017

Freefall

This Freyan Verse was inspired firstly by the film “Space Cowboys” and secondly by losing one of my close writing friends in 2014. It also describes how alienated I felt during chemotherapy and during recovery from cancer. Click on the link to find out how to read this poem both vertically and horizontally. You can write your own, if you wish!

an odyssey of ashes …

21 March, 2017

A detective story and a yearning for Spring … These were the themes of the poem and short story that were given as my March Rewards for my Patreon supporters.
If you missed out on these rewards, don’t worry! If you pledge your support for me at Patreon before 1st April, you will be able to access the April Rewards.
Once published, my books need to be promoted. This can only be done effectively if I pay established companies to promote my novels etc. Therefore, I am seeking to promote my books on a weekly basis and to do that properly, I need at least $30 per month. Without promotion I cannot sell my work and, as I am currently unemployed, I have no means of funding myself. If I can sell a certain amount of books per month, I can then fulfil my dream of being a full time writer!
In April, my supporters will receive a previously unpublished cinquain/haiku/lantune sequence about journeying through Space and/or a previously unpublished story about a man who no longer has a place to call home …
See you at Patreon soon!

Freya’s Newsletter

20 March, 2017

By now I would have normally emailed the link to the current newsletter to all my subscribers. If you’re wondering why it hasn’t appeared, that’s because I’m having to put my newsletter on hold this year.
The main reason for this is that I am moving house and starting a new enterprise. I didn’t get a chance to get the first episode of the new story out this month due to all the things I’ve had to organise for the move etc. I’m really sorry about this!
My plan is to just rest from the newsletter this year and then commence serialising The Attar of Chervil in 2018. I hope all of you who subscribe are OK with the wait! House moving and setting up new enterprises are time consuming jobs!
An update will be posted at Current Story when I am ready to continue with the newsletter once more. Much love. Freya xxx

Here are the first three verses of my Freyan Verse, Freefall. I’ve put the colours in so you can see where each stanza ends and begins. How would you finish this verse?

Dragonscale Paintings – 20170307

7 March, 2017
I’ve been trying out new things this year – what do you think of this?

I was inspired by Elisa Choi Ang’s workshops over at SkillShare
I find painting like this very therapeutic – it helps me relax mentally and stimulates my creative flow. I can only produce abstract paintings. I have lost the ability to draw properly – an effect of cancer/chemo perhaps?
Why don’t you try Elisa’s workshops? She makes painting accessible to everyone!

aluminium to this is writing

No books published yet, this year! Hopefully more will be released in months to come …
But since November last year, I have had a few poems and articles published.

My poems Fading and Stone Ventricles were published in Agnishatdal Ezine in November and January respectively. Contact the editor if you would like to receive a copy of this magazine!
Spillwords published five of my short form poems in November and December 2016. Check them out at
Darkness
Aluminium
Ninth Wave

In January I had a guest blog at Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo as well as a Shadorma appearing at The Drabble. One of my haiku was published in the first issue of Stardust Haiku and I also featured in an author interview over at Pretty Hot.
An article I wrote about my experiences of cancer appeared in February at BurstOut Magazine. I was interviewed by Sporkette over at Patricia Spork’s Blog and I was also featured at Awesome Gang and This Is Writing. (Please note that this last interview was published while The Rusalka Ritual was reduced in price!)
If you love FREEREADS, I keep a list of all the stories and poetry you can read for free at FREE STUFF!
