The weekly photo challenge is ‘colour’, and as you can see I chose blue. Initially I was going to write lots of different pages of a story I am working on longhand in different colours and make a gallery of those – but I appear to have misplaced most of my more interesting pen colours. SEND PENS NOW. Or, look at the blue things instead whilst I think of further ridiculous ways to procrastinate.
Some of the bluest books I own.
Blue desk tidy, featuring a blue ruler and some blue pens. Also the weird wicker owl thingy and Totoro.
Reading chair, covered in mostly blue blanket I knitted. The owl is Professor Lindsay.
Blue shoes, containing my blue degree tube and a blue light sabre.
Story I am working on in blue.
In other news, The Life and Times of a Working Barbarian is now live – why not go forth and vote on who you want the hero to be?
