The Name Has Come


And now, the time has come …
As today is the day that @LoonyMoonyLara, me, turns twenty one and yesterday was @AdeleSGray’s birthday too, we decided to make an event out of it, cos no, there was no space for cake today and that’s not great, but life goes on!
In the event of which, it was also time to release the news about our new magazine project!
The Friday Phrases and 200 Word Tuesday’s blogs go hand in hand. They belong together, how could we ever tear them apart, right?
At the same time, what could we do to give them the breath of life they so desperately needed?
The answer lay within a magazine that would forthwith spearhead all that was to come, all the good things in the future and now, all you awesome people, I have the great privilege of spilling the beans and telling you what we are calling it.
So, gather around!
For the amalgamated #FP and #200WT blogs now come together, to create new programs, new community events, and new opportunities … the phoenix rises from the ashes and the muse is reborn to the spirit of all we do.
For the name of the new project is
*lets that sink in for a sec*
And yes, the name of the magazine is Musae Mosaic! The ode to the Muses whom we all worship, and a great mosaic made of the arts to create the magic it is!
This is our offering to you.
This is the second chance for everything we have, that we will fight for and never let go.
This is a place of welcome, where words, passion and imagination exist in a realm that is limitless, in a place that exists only to please you.
And word of honor, we uphold that for hopefully time without end!
Let’s make art together!
Let’s make what we love a madness worth celebrating.
Happy April, and happy days!
Peace! x

Bright Ideas To Share!


Hi, guys!
Ahem. For what it’s worth, Happy Monday! Now it may not be worth a lot, but efforts will be made! It’s taking a mighty effort here, but it all goes toward good things.
Anyway, to the good stuff!
Yesterday was a disaster. I had everything planned. I had it all figured out. I had all the announcements and everything all lined up … and then the internet failed. For the whole day. Now we don’t know why, but as you can imagine, it threw a huge spanner in the works for us, you know? Unfun and uncool, and unfortunately out of our hands.
So we did not release the name of the new magazine and see if you guys freaked out about it just like we did.
And that was a huge pity.
So we made more plans, to try again, and we’ll do it on two lucky days (or so we hope!)
The 4th and 5th of April is @AdeleSGray and my birthday, and let’s not talk about that part too much, cos panic, and panic not nice, BUT that will be the day we sing the new name and the dawn of a new era from the very rooftops!
In the meantime, there is much to be done that we cannot do alone.
As of now, I am preparing this magazine for a big, bright future and I’m doing that on my non-existent tech skills, so much of my time is being taken up.
I am also editing and working on all the promised anthologies so that it can be available to you in the very near future and as such, time is not a luxury I have at the moment for anything other than many sleepless night and highly caffeinated manic attacks of progress.
So you guys, I need you to be my army.
The word won’t spread itself and for the first time in a long time, we have a sustainable answer to all the problems we’ve been facing, but we can’t get everything up and running while also telling everyone we know about what’s coming.
There aren’t enough hours in the day. And as we can’t afford to automate this kind of message, on the scale we need it to be, we are doing it all ourselves.
And that’s where we need your help.
We need you to be our heralds!
We need you to shout it out loud wherever possible, and not only that, but help us amass content to make up for lost time and to celebrate the coming of something good!
If you guys want to share this with us, here’s a few things you can help us do to make a nice big noise about the magazine and share your content for its bright new beginning!
All things can and shall pass into legend and I have a lifetime to do all I can to make that possible for you.
1. Write your #200WT’s! As this program will not be going anywhere, the themes will go up as usual and we invite you to write one, two, five, ten, fifty, a million if you so desire and send it to us the way you always have! They will kept for launch and they’ll be given the Hall of Fame treatment! Word of honor!
2. Ya’ll know many awesome peeps, right? Yeah? Soooo … how about you help the world find out about them too and you seek ‘em out and you interview them? At any length, just talk about creativity and writing and the ways that they make it work for them when the Muse (this word is a nice, juicy clue, folks!) is being a bother, and what they’re writing and how they feel about this project and all that jazz? Sound good? I dare you to do it. In fact, I’ll join you, and anyone who had awesome things to tell me, pitch me at and we’ll get to the good stuff, yeah?
3. Talk to us. Tell us about the most amazing indie books you just read that simply needs a prime time review that you would love to write and that we would be only too happy to provide!
4. Send cake.
5. Got some amazing advice for brave, aspiring writers? Share it. We would just ADORE featuring some of your articles about it, about what you know, and the amazing things you can tell us, so if you’re interested in some guest posting, go ahead in hitting us up! We’d love to feature you! Seriously!

And now if you can think of any more that you’d like to include into this list, we’d love to hear it! And in the meantime, I leave you with this.
I go now to work until the wee hours of every day of this week and more, and make tea and think and work and whatever!
So off with me! *does swishy Dracula cape thing*
Have an awesome week!


The Very Best of All For Love!


And here we are …
We have done it. Redeemed three weeks worth of #FP’s, and had a birthday party in between (yup, another one. I know, right? I don’t know how I can stand all the cake either. The sugar is starting to eat me back.)
Anyway, the night now draws to a close.
The hour grows late and while Gandalf The Gray does not ride to Isengard, I ride ever closer to bed, and pillows and dreams of the Shire, where I desire to be more than anything in this world …
Now. As my eight hours of reprieve comes, I shall leave you with this … the Very Best of All For Love.

Missiles near flying
Which will it be
Is there any love left?

Every time he sung “All for love,” the irony hit him hard. His only hit and
he got no royalties for the song. #FP
