DSC_0359I started writing at primary school – a little while back –  and now write for pleasure.

This is my writing blog, about current work, writing, reading, listening, and some random findings from “wandering”.

In these pages you will find excerpts from The Page and other work in progress, and a roll of writers’ and photographers’ blogs I follow (which may not be up-to-date!).

Your comments are welcome, and please feel free to reblog any of my posts (a mention of the source is always appreciated!).

Please note that this is now an awards-free blog: this is not misplaced arrogance – I am grateful for the awards received in the past – but a reflection on time, and my wish to concentrate on writing.

  1. Sorry to intrude on your holiday from writing and blogging, but I hope you don’t mind if I tagged you for the Lucky 7 Random Editing game (since I do like what I have read so far of your work). I am normally the last person on earth to endorse chain letters, but this one got me thinking (and made me feel forever humble, or do I mean humiliated?) Here are the rules on my blog:
    Please don’t feel pressured to take part, it’s just a way of saying that I appreciate your writing and your thoughts, and connecting with you online. Have a lovely Easter, hopefully better weather!


  2. Thank you for visiting my blog and liking, What If, Mint Juleps and Little Green Men, and Help, I’m a Writer I’m looking forward to exploring more of your blog 🙂


  3. LOL you came back – what a glutton for punishment 🙂
    All joking aside, I do appreciate it though that you read and liked my last seven posts – four of which are part of a series…not necessarily in order though.


  4. I can’t find where to comment on your erotica blog…. But I am glad I found it and you.. I love your pen name and wish I could think of one that would allow me to write extreme erotica…

    Thanks for visiting my blog…


  5. Bonjour Monsieur Dupuis! 🙂 C’est nettement meiux que Hercule Poirot(poireau=leek!)… 🙂
    Je connais un Marc Dupuis, I’m serious.

    Amitiés toulousaines ensoleillées, merci pour les haltes @playground & tons of inspiration! Cheers, Mélanie


    1. Thanks dear reader, if you read this page you will notice that I have given a polite notice on awards. But I am honoured and appreciate your visit.


      1. The acceptance process can be so time-consuming that I’m always reluctant to impose it upon those I find most worthy of nominations. I’m actually relieved when nominees respond as you have (and appreciate your candor).


  6. Hi Sisyphus albeit a pen name.

    I also write under a pseudonym and like you reject blog awards for the same reason, a drain on resources.

    You have an interesting site and I will take time to read a little more of your work. I particular liked your 5 sentence fiction, a tough order to achieve and include an iota of conflict.



  7. Just happened to run into your blog. You have got a beautiful space running here. Loved some of your write-ups. Its very subtle. I can see from the amazing quality of your writing that I shall very much enjoy your blog-space here.


  8. Greetings!

    Thanks for the follow! How have you been and how’s your blog doing?
    I created a blogger tips group to connect with all my long last WordPress blogger friends, and to help all of us to learn from each other. I would love for you to share your knowledge in the group and connect with other bloggers. Here’s the link:
