Don’t be deceived by the title, this blog isn’t about birds. It’s about books, tea, and complaining. It’s also about writing, because there’s nothing quite like escaping into a world that you’ve created for yourself. So I suppose it’s about escapism, too.
Or, the value of a good listener. “Just don’t worry about it.” Well, thank you. That’s very helpful. My anxiety is cured! “Everything will be fine.” How? How will it be fine? How do you know? “Calm down.” Now, when has telling someone to calm down ever worked? Anxiety is more and more common, especiallyContinue reading “About A Heron”
Oh yes, we love to read. As children, books were portals to unimaginable worlds. As adults, books mean relaxation, escapism, nostalgia, you name it. As long as people have been writing books and making up stories, other people have been dying to read them. I loved books so much that I couldn’t imagine that anyoneContinue reading “Reading The Right Book”

Of course, I knew what I was supposed to be doing, but it was just so much more alluring to sit and imagine that things were different. Sometimes IContinue reading “Making Castles Out Of Thin Air”
It’s taken me a little longer to read this book, mainly because I’m now back at work. I read the first half in bits and pieces, whenever I could, then the last half all at once, during a free afternoon. This is the second installment in the Alice series, picking up exactly where we leftContinue reading “Because You Must Live, Alice”
Fanfiction isn’t exactly a new idea. Self inserts have been around since Jane Eyre and Elizabeth Bennet, and anyone who says they haven’t read a book/watched a film and thought: I would have ended that differently; well, they’re liars. But the whole idea behind fanfiction is somewhat controversial. Why? Now, of course there’s the obviousContinue reading “Are You Sure You Want To Write That??”
