YouTube: Memories/Love/Haircuts/Two Readings


Made a video. There are two readings of pieces taken from the second volume of A Journal for Damned Lovers, as well as talk about my current writing process. I ramble for a bit as well and talk about cutting-edge topics like spiders and haircuts and stuff. It’s a tight twenty minutes as well, so easily digestible while having a bath, or a trip to the toilet if you’re mildly constipated. Hope you give it a watch and enjoy it. Oh yeah, the pieces I read are Harvest Moon and Catnip Girl.

  1. Enjoyed this visit SK . I’ve reserved the next few hours to pick up where I left off on this fantastic book…Damned…paged 27, I dogged eared it because I’m not disciplined enough to use bookmarks. I love dog eared books though. x 🙂

      • In the throes of mild constipation, I have been known to have a soak in the bath…but, I am neither bunged-up or in pain, muscularly (made-up word). My eldest stopped having long soaks in the bath after she decided that she felt unclean, as if she were in a bath full of water and dead skin…and I had to admit that she had a point. I do hope I haven’t spoiled it for you now too.

      • Quite a few people have told me they don’t enjoy baths because they don’t like the idea of sitting in muck, but I think as long as you keep yourself reasonably clean, you’ll be okay. If you only have a bath every month, then yeah, you might have a problem on your hands 😉 x

  2. Yes! I’ve watched it now. This is my favourite (vlog) now. I’m delighted that you spoke about mundane. I do love mundane because it’s real. Sometimes it’s more real than the stuff that goes around it, you know…like the stuff that other people want to read about. I love that you get that too. Coincidentally, there was a spider on my kitchen roof earlier today and I stood and looked at it for about 5 minutes, before deciding to just leave it alone. It was gone when I got in from work. It might have scaled the stairs and be in my bedroom now, but I’m not sure I care. It was biggish.

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed it 🙂
      The mundane is far more real than glitz and glamour, isn’t it? More grounded by far.
      In a strange way, I do like spiders. I’m like a human version of one myself. Quite antisocial and misunderstood. But still, why can’t they just stick to the garden shed instead of coming indoors and causing trouble? x

      • I’m fascinated by them, but irrationally scared of them. Four of us once sat discussing WHO should do something about Gigantor when he crawled under one of the sofas. It was ridiculous. We were rigid with cowardice.
