Profile I used to be an avid writer when I was much younger but when teenage angst left me, I seemed to lose the drive although I never lost the love of the written word. Recently, through the enthusiasm of a good friend who also writes, I seem to have got the bug again. I would welcome any advice that helps me on my journey to get back in the saddle.

All The Pretty Colours by Jojovits1 Word Count: 40

For Flash! The colours reminded me of pills and the need for a pill to counteract some effects of a pill...not that I'm on anti depressants - I have wine! :-)

My favourite place. On Sundays my best friend and I would go walking up to Alloway and eat sandwiches and soup on the bridge. Happy times!

For Lynn by Jojovits1 Word Count: 60
4  Comments

My best friend has been a source of love, laughter, support and inspiration for years. One of the strongest and most talented people I know. For all her struggles, she's worked her backside off to come out the other side and still be amazing and strong and compassionate and funny! When we were teenagers I idolised her. She was everything I wanted to be and did everything I wanted to do. She still does. x

Sissi Sea by Jojovits1 Word Count: 61
6  Comments

I've just been to Crete for the umpteenth time. I love it there. My favourite thing is sitting by the sea and watching. Not people watching. Sea watching. This was the only thing I wrote in a fortnight (it was a very lazy holiday) and it needs work. It may need binning! :-) Let me know either way.

Sloth by Jojovits1 Word Count: 69

Sloth is not a sin of doing something bad - rather a sin of not doing something. Sloth is a sin of omitting responsibilities. Sometimes feels like God has retired and left us to it.

Smells like October by Jojovits1 Word Count: 115
9  Comments

October, to me, has a smell. I can recognise it anywhere (and it doesn't need to be October to smell it). It heralds the end of summer and the begining of autumn. It reminds me that Halloween is round the corner. I love the smell and it makes me not miss summer :-)

Summer `83 by Jojovits1 Word Count: 113

I was 13 and a very "angsty" teenager :-)! I remember sitting on a wall in the sun at the end of our road and thinking, "I wish I was 16 and this would all be done". Idiot! :-)

The 45% by Jojovits1 Word Count: 83
4  Comments

Indy ref was a complete awakening for me, politically. I became galvanised by what I believed was right for my family and friends in Scotland. Some family and friends did not have the same view so it was a bit tricky but there you go. I remember getting up at 3.30 to watch the votes come in and getting a hug from my husband before I left for work (crying) at 5, even though he did not agree with me. It was said that it was a once in a lifetime vote. I don't think it will be.

The House of Treasure by Jojovits1 Word Count: 114
4  Comments

Sixteen and studying, my next door neighbour asked me to stand in for her for a couple of days tending an old gentleman who lived in the "big house" down the road. Never knew much about him. The house was like a museum. It fascinated me for years and I never forgot him (also it was a shocking revelation to a sixteen yr old, seeing a 90 yr olds "bits")

The Wardrobe by Jojovits1 Word Count: 119
4  Comments

I was a messy child (hell, I'm a messy adult!). I was forever being told to tidy my wardrobe as it was just a jumble of clothes, toys, books etc. This was one of those council house (storage was always better) jobs that you could climb into and get lost. And I did. Frequently. I went back when we were clearing the house when mum moved to Oz. The wardrobe was full of her clothes now and very neat but my chalked sayings and love hearts were still there, 30-40 yrs on. :-)

I love the sound of the wind. She always comes across to me as some sort of sprite, playful or angry, depending on her mood!

The Wizard by Jojovits1 Word Count: 41

I only remembered this a short while ago. When I was very little, my brother used to tell me that he knew a wizard and that one day he would take me to him. I must have been about seven and he would have been sixteen. Amazing what you'll tell kids to get them to behave!
