Hey there. Here’s my blog. Thanks so much for popping by.
I’ve divided it up into rants and raves, stories, poems, younger and now, sounding like radio 2, I’ve added news and travel. It’s aimed at adults, but the link ‘younger’ is where I’ve put stuff for people who aren’t yet adults, or who may technically be adults but have lapsed, or can’t be bothered, or who neither know nor care.
Most of my work isn’t on here. My novels are tucked away on Scrivener, and most of my stories and poetry are in a Word folder labelled ‘hopelessly optimistic’. Consider this blog an amuse-bouche, a sniff and a swirl and a spit, a tester bottle on the shelf of sentences.
I tweet, sometimes. If you like that sort of thing, I’m @WellstoodSophie
And I Instagram, too. I LOVE Instagram. Instagram
And here’s my home-made Website, fresh out of the oven, cooling on a rack by the window.
And here’s a blog I did 10 years ago which someone recently unearthed from some cobwebby corner of the internet. I was practising teeny tiny stories and was obsessed with weather forecasts. The Weather Forecast.
If you’ve happened to stop by and have enjoyed anything – yay. Feel free to let me or other people know.
