About

I am a Weegie writer with fibromyalgia and other chronic conditions which make life challenging on a daily basis.

I’ve written since I was a wee lassie who believed her alien parents had left her behind on a scouting mission to earth.

I’ve had stories published in a variety of magazines and online publications and won a few competitions. These days I find writing very difficult, thanks to Fibro Fog. Words elude me. It’s very depressing and sad, but what can I do?

I read a lot, almost exclusively on Kindle now as holding books causes a lot of pain. I always have to be doing something to stop me from dwelling on all the real horror of life, so I like to sew, make clothes for my Blythe dolls, embroider, and crochet. Right now, crochet is my Main Thing and it keeps me sane. Thanks to codeine and lidocaine patches, I am managing to do a little every day. I haven’t drawn, painted, or embroidered in a very long time and I’m not sure I can now.

I hope to share some poetry and flash fiction on this site, maybe rant when things get too much, maybe share any successes. But don’t hold your breath for those.

Thanks for reading and feel free to have a wee nosey.

Yours aye,

Nettie
