  1. Love your work! You should be world renowned !!!!


  2. Your stories intrigue me – lovely writing style. It took a while to get to your about page though – it might be worth making it easier for people to find out who you are. I floundered around for a while getting confused. Glad I stuck it out though πŸ™‚

      Thank you! It makes me so happy that you read my writing! ^__^

      I’ll make my about a category in the main menu. Do you think that will help?


      1. Yes, sounds good. When someone follows me, I always check them out but I want to know in a few seconds what they’re about. Yours confused me because I couldn’t easily find out about you. From your about page you could then add links to lead people around your blog if you wanted. Have a look at a few random blogs and see which ones you ‘get’ instantly and which ones you don’t. Looking forward to reading more of your stuff πŸ™‚

  3. As soon as I read one of your articles I knew you had what it takes to handle a head line….:)

      I’m not sure if this is a compliment or a thinly veiled insult… but I’ll take what I can get! Thanks! ^__^


      1. No it was intended as a compliment………

        In that case please excuse my paranoia :p I have been trying to channel it into short stories but evidently there’s a little left over :p

  4. This is some of the worst writing I have ever read. The Anthony Kiedis piece is embarrassing.

      Hey Simon. Thanks for your valuable literary critique.

      Seeing as we are acquainted on Twitter & WordPress now, why not take a moment to whinge about my Instagram (@skeazel) or go ahead and add me on Facebook (Viv Mitchell).


      1. No thanks. Bye.

  5. Just linked your article on the CEO sleep out in a comment on the Guardian webpage. Story is about the SBS “rich folk sleep out” – more poverty porn. Hope you don’t mind. Regards David

    Good Shit. Keep going!

      πŸ˜€ thank you… I shall!


  7. Well I reckon your writing is all over the place.
    I would suggest try focusing on a particular topic and get that trending before moving on to numerous topics.

      Wow. I’m going to file that under “useless advice”.
