It's a terrible beast - it pulls me around the house performing tasks that really could wait; it sticks me in front of Facebook reading 7 ways get rid of a mobile phone in a horror movie and finding out what animal I was in a previous life. It makes me cups of coffee and feeds me biscuits and has me watching the wind shake the branches outside and wondering if it's worth hanging the washing outside.

And then, when I finally start on my submission, the old enemy makes itself known. It whispers into my ear that I'm not good enough, my story is of no interest and I'm wasting my time. I fight back as best I can but it retaliates with a bombardment of other ideas that might be better.

Will I ever be published in a Stampington magazine? Well, not without submitting something first that's for sure!

I'm thinking of sending a selection of these in. What do you think?


  1. I know how it is with procrastination. Before the internet there was procrastination but now it's Superfast High Speed Procrastination. I'm glad you've gotten your lovely flowers done -- they speak well of spring blooms -- I love the transparency and color.

  2. Do it. As you say yourself you will never get published if you don't. They are so beautiful, magical and ethereal... just like real flowers. <3

  3. these are so completely soft and gorgeous! i love the way you have blended and outlined!!!!!

  4. and here I am reading this and thinking..... damn.......

  5. I like your images, they are quite dreamy, and as you say you will never get published if at first you don't submit them!!


Thank you for your comments - I always love to hear what you think :)
