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

how quick time slips by when I’m cleaning; there still doesn’t seem to be enough time for everything…

Matter to Turning Point

12 August, 2015
I do try to announce through this blog whenever I get something published, particularly if it is online and free for my readers to take a look at it. Here is a catch up of the poetry and short stories that have been published since the end of May… As always, feedback is appreciated!
May 2015
I had a speculative poem “Matter” published online at The Original Van Gogh’s Ear. It’s free to read – please let me know what you think of it! Also, “Emerald”, an elfje, appeared at Simply Elfje.
June 2015
Two elfje appeared in June at Simply Elfje: – Hearts and Prostate
July 2015
My unicorn villanelle was published at Abyss & Apex. I had two poems published in Dial 174 #102; “At The Top Of The Hill” and “Birch Branches and Bracken”. And on 31st July, my first piece of flash fiction was published online at Turning Point

Unused Clippings

25 April, 2014
I was shocked on 2nd April 2014 when I opened my journal and discovered I hadn’t written in it since 7th March 2014…
As I explained in I’m back … kind of March was really not a good month at all. No writing to speak of.
But out of this difficult time has emerged a new form of poetry to engage my mind. Once I have perfected it, I will share it with you. For now, let it be enough to say that it is very complex and challenges my brain!
As I had not written anything for nearly 4 weeks, I found myself without clippings for this month. So I thought back to what I remembered most (I still noticed things even though I hadn’t written them down) and recalled the sounds and sights of the birds I had seen.
I also looked back to previous journals and discovered plenty of “unused” clippings that had never seen the light of day. So, maybe I’m cheating a little, but you will have to forgive me if sometimes I post what appears to be an “unseasonal” clipping every now and then. I hadn’t realised how relevant some of these ‘unused’ clippings still are to me. It seems a waste not to use them, so when I do not have enough time to compose a clipping for the day, I will be posting an old, unused one…
Thank you for reading my blog. Every like, follow and comment is truly appreciated.

Wednesday Words – What I Need

13 November, 2013
I’ve just asked myself this question – what do I NEED right now? Immediately I answered, Space in which to write. Really write.
I have been too complicated in my routine. I know I need to make space for a rest day once a quarter as well as find time to reply to letters and emails. And I also need to plan blog posts and send work out every 6 weeks or so. But the rest of the time I just need to buckle down and write. Write Now! (My motto for 2013). I need to stop worrying about how many copies of my book have been sold or how many people have stopped following my blogs.
The important thing is to write. I have space in my head. I can write. If my head gets clogged up with too many ideas, I know I can spend a week or so without words to clear it. I know where I’m going. Stop making excuses, Freya, and do some writing…
