I’ve been writing.
I currently have a review pending approval and, being superstitious, am touching the wooden table now. I also have written my backstage account of the German Fetish Ball for the Fetishistas here and a “How To” information guide on Flash Fiction (teeny weeny short stories with a beginning, middle, end, and a discernible plot) for the Mookychicks online magazine. I have even included some of my own work! Go and have a look. In fact, go and have a look at the Mookychicks site anyway because it rocks.

I have a lot of respect for the Mookychicks, being an online magazine with more interesting articles than the usual celebrity crap, diets and shock factors most magazines go for. The site specialises in “How To” guides, alternative style features and spotlights on interesting people, as well as running competitions and reviews of recent games, films and books. Columns include “Girl Geek”, “Activism” and “Kitsch Bitsch”.
I’ve found a place the alternative-and-like-minded can hang out. (And talk on the forums).
Someone else has been writing too; A while ago I posted up THIS picture on DeviantArt, and lea-M was inspired to write some poetry. She mailed it to me and I thought the least I could do was put it up here for you all to see!
Slave I am.
Since I was born.
Sold from master to master.
My life has never belonged to me.
For clothes, only padlock and chains.
Hope is there.
For the first time,
my star leaves the floor,
my voice goes through my lips.
Light is hope…
Thankyou muchly, lea-M. You rock.
I also got the two other photos in the set along with more shots from Spain, from John Tisbury. I’m saving some for my website so for now, here’s this set:
I did my own hair and make-up for the shoot, and dunked my head under the tap. Make-up was from Urban Decay, which I looooove! (Shades Zero and Ransom.) I was trying to vary my expressions for each shot without being too extreme, and I love doing different things with my hair. I know it lends itself to the “long and flowing” thing, but I like experimenting. 🙂
