A Busy Month

Sandra Lindsey/ September 3, 2017/ My life/ 0 comments

Not very busy recently with the ‘getting words on page’ part of writing, alas, though I’ve been plotting, making notes, and reading around for the two projects I want/need to get on with this Autumn. First up is a short story for Manifold Press’s No Holds Bard anthology. I decided quite a while ago that this would be set in Antarctica,

Consequences

Sandra Lindsey/ April 13, 2017/ My life/ 0 comments

No, not the party game. I’ve been thinking this week about consequences of choices we make. I’m still trying to figure out a coherent way of expressing these thoughts, but hey, I’m a story teller, so I figure I’ll use borrow some tools from fiction-writing. First, the inciting incident: My Grandad died last week. Context: He was 89, but his

Here & There

Sandra Lindsey/ March 28, 2017/ My life/ 0 comments

So back when I wrote my post about 10 things I brought back from Eroticon? I should have included a stinking cold on the list… It wasn’t too bad initially, just a bit of a sniffle that developed into mild con-crud… I’d booked the week off work anyway, seeing as my birthday was on the Tuesday – but then it

Recap & reflections

Sandra Lindsey/ January 2, 2017/ My life/ 0 comments

So, with the hangover dealt with, and the Bank Holiday sliding from ‘afternoon’ to ‘evening’, I figured I’d jot down some of the thoughts I’ve had… 2016, in the Lindsey household, has been somewhat of a rollercoaster. Ignoring politics (because I just don’t want to go there… more later). This time last year our main income was from self-employment –

Grief, helicopters, & an unexpected trans story

Sandra Lindsey/ October 14, 2016/ My life/ 0 comments

Been a bit of a weird week for me. One of my friends from work died unexpectedly (but thankfully not violently) last weekend. I found out from Facebook around 5am on Monday morning (hadn’t been able to sleep, so resorted to checking the internet). Needless to say, none of us at day-job have been feeling particularly 100% this week, and

Getting old, going to town, and learning magic!

Sandra Lindsey/ March 13, 2016/ My life/ 0 comments

I’ve had this last week off from my day-job. Not something I often do, taking a full week off, but I had enough days of annual leave left (our year runs Apr-Mar so nearly at an end), and it was my birthday last Monday so I thought “Why not?” I had several things in mind which I wanted to achieve

Out & About rather a lot this month

Sandra Lindsey/ October 9, 2015/ My life

On the verge of a Weekend of Geekery – we’re off to a model railway exhibition at a vintage vehicle museum tomorrow, and on Sunday we’ll be at RAF Museum Hendon (where the Sunderland is! I’ve been wanting to go there since I first decided to feature on Sunderland flying boats during my research for Under Leaden Skies, 3 years

Adventures in the North-East

Sandra Lindsey/ September 22, 2015/ My life

(of England, that is!) Had a grand old time on our weekend away: Friday we went to Locomotion, part of the National Railway Museum. Didn’t have a lot of time there, but there were a couple of engines in steam and we found out they have a celebration of the Deltics coming up (Husband’s favourite engine) so there may be

It’s raining and I love it!

Sandra Lindsey/ August 23, 2015/ My life

It’s the middle of August and here in Mid Wales it is absolutely peeing it down. Many people dislike, and complain about, rain in summer time, and for some people I can understand their dislike: crops can be ruined, having a devastating effect on farmers’ incomes, and people whose business relies on passing tourist trade can be equally devastated by

#toodamntired

Sandra Lindsey/ August 21, 2015/ My life

So many good things been whizzing round my head since my trip to Bristol for Eroticon, and so many more to look forward to when I return there in a few weeks’ time for UK Meet, but right now? I just can’t quite get up any energy let alone show how bouncy & excited I’m feeling… Had ‘Write Club’ (not
