Hello and welcome! 🙂


I write here under my pen-name, Montaffera.

I think about things a lot.

I often Google things that I think about.

If left to my own devices, I could probably use up at least three people’s Evernote quotas in an afternoon.

I buy books on lots of subjects, then feel regret when I can’t read them all at once and squash all the information into my already overloaded brain.  If I just read them in the right order, I’d be such a guru…I still like to expound on it all, regardless.

I am the stereotypical crafter: yarn and material stashed away for the comfy apocalypse.  Running around at the last minute, stressed (because I was up to a silly hour obsessing over a plastic eye sitting squint) after procrastinating for a month.

I love looking at magazines (this and this are my favourites just now) checking out the featured bios and blogs that interest me, dreaming about the day I can do something worthwhile with my creativity.

But it’s all just filling time, because what I should be doing is writing.

I need to write every day, or I feel weird.  So I’ve decided to challenge myself to write a daily piece and log it publically, here. 

(I’ll probably ramble about the other stuff, too, but I now have a mission)

At the moment I am challenging myself to write a poem or short story every day, details of which can be found here, then feel free to delve into the archives or category sections of the menu and see what I’ve been up to!

I’d be glad of your company, I’m just going to be making a tea anyway…

P.P.S Gaps in my content calendar have appeared over the summer, but I am on the case.  The content is all here, it just needs to come out of editing!  Things get full on with kids…you know how it goes…
