Wyrd Words Book Club

Some of you might know about Slice Of The Moon Book Club, the little book club I set up on Instagram a while ago. Well, it's been re-vamped as Wyrd Words Book Club! The literature I'll share will be, typically, wyrd and dark, though there will be a strong focus on nature, as there often… Continue reading Wyrd Words Book Club

On Not Letting My Phone Steal My Reading Time

A little while ago, I got a proper phone. By that, I mean one that hadn’t been handed down to me. By that, I also mean a phone with which I can do all the you’re supposed to be able to do on a phone in 2019. (In case you’re interested in learning about my… Continue reading On Not Letting My Phone Steal My Reading Time

Queen Of Wyrd

2019 so far? Honestly, what the fuck was that? Every month for me has had its nasty troubles, and I find it somewhat remarkable that I’m still here writing to you. (There are some fantastic memes that have helped me through the quagmire of 2019 so I think I’ll do a post just for them… Continue reading Queen Of Wyrd

DIY In The Dark : Deer & Muskrat Bone Jewellery

The bones you see here are deer and muskrat bones, and were sent by my especially kind sister shaman AKA Meghan Wood, my bandmate in Cave Mouth. Before I made them into jewellery, I put them in a 6% hydrogen peroxide bath (I’ve done this before…) for several hours, then rinsed them off and let… Continue reading DIY In The Dark : Deer & Muskrat Bone Jewellery

Getting Dressed In The Dark : Breaking In New Boots

T’other day I bought myself my fourth pair of French Ranger Army Boots in ten years, after being heartily disappointed when a Dr. Marten outlet didn’t have the all-black boots I wanted. Glittery Docs? Yep. Pink and glittery Docs? Yep. All black Docs? Absolutely, definitely not. I guess it was to be, seen as though… Continue reading Getting Dressed In The Dark : Breaking In New Boots

I’m Taking Metal Back

Due to circumstances I don’t want to go into, concerning people I don’t want to talk about – I’ve already put hexes on their heads anyway – I've been doubting my place in the metal scene. I've found it impossible to wear my band shirts, I've found it impossible to listen to my favourite bands,… Continue reading I’m Taking Metal Back

Thinking In The Dark : Blackberries

I gathered in the first of the blackberries today – an impressive handful of six weighty berries were very gently placed in the front pocket of my rucksack. (It’s still a bit early for them to be coming out, so I considered myself very fortunate to have gathered six.) I’ve been thinking about blackberries a… Continue reading Thinking In The Dark : Blackberries

DIY In The Dark : Icicle Earrings

My moods have been cycling so rapidly recently that I don't know which way is up. I have to repeatedly ask what day/date it is and I'm zoning out all the time. Waking up crying has become the norm and I'm being referred to a heart specialist because the medication I've been on for ten… Continue reading DIY In The Dark : Icicle Earrings

Dark Art Of Mermaids & Other Sea Folk

I got to thinking about mermaids the other day when I was reading into sea glass – something for which I’ve developed quite the obsession – and I discovered that, in sailors folklore, sea glass is said to be mermaid’s tears. The tears are supposedly shed as a result of Neptune’s jealous wrath when a… Continue reading Dark Art Of Mermaids & Other Sea Folk
