    Smoking Kills | ‘It’s The Small Thing’ Series

    Welcome to an instalment of my first short story series. ‘It’s The Small Things’ is a short story series featuring the running topic of death. This series shows the importance of decisions in our lives and portrays how one decision (a small thing) can cause our end. This series may be upsetting and/or graphic and may not be suitable for those easily upset.    Lindsay stood outside the club. With arms folded, she stared at Franklin. He brought his lit cigarette to his lips and inhaled deeply. “What does a girl have to do to get a cig around here?” She said, a flirtatious smile spread across her face. “Oh come on, you…

Stripey socks lightly met carpet with every step and masked any noise. “19, 18, 17, 16, 15…” The tiny feet ran across the living room floor. The stripey socks danced around, undecided. “14, 13, 12…” Cody’s eyes…

    In A Jar House | Original Poem By Sophie Lloyd

    Welcome to my first original piece. It is terrifying putting your work out there but I do hope you enjoy. I am aware that there are a few slanted rhymes but it is still a working process. Any suggestions are welcome. I know this is a long one but stick at it, it’s worth it! Well, I think so but I am biased. Hope you enjoy!   Within their home, in a jar house high up on the shelves lived a happy couple content within themselves.   Loving where they were with every jar a friend the community was thriving with jar homes from end to end.   Warren the…

    I like to think of myself as a writer. ‘Think’ being the main word in that. I am not a writer but I suppose it is what I aspire to be. I have always done best in English classes and this is the main reason I chose to study English Language at the University of Huddersfield. Alongside, I chose a Creative Writing course as well. The writer in me. All my life, all I wanted was to be the next Darren Shan (you can read all my love about his books here) and so I have like a million starts to books or half-written ones lying around. My main problem…

I saw this one had been added and reading the synopsis, it looked like the one for me. True story films are ones which I do like.

    Review: Adrift (2018) #JustAThought

    It’s Tuesday and that can only mean one thing… Meerkat Movies!   I LOVE Meerkat Movies because it’s a cheap date night for me and Ginger. Not that we skimp constantly but when it comes to the cinema, it can be quite pricey. Meerkat Movies allows us to have some us time as well as watch films we are dying to see. This particular film was one just for me. As I have previously mentioned in my ‘The Shallows‘ review, I do love films which involve the sea/ocean and sharks. This also scopes across films featuring stranded people at sea. Once again, I don’t know why but they just drag me…
