I Ate’nt Dead

Hello everybody! It’s been… almost three years? Seriously? I haven’t updated this blog in THREE YEARS?

Oops!

So where the hell have I been? Long story short: having difficulties. Since the last update, I got a Distinction for my MA (which was nice) and had a bit of a breakdown (which was less so). I’m now diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and ADHD on top of being autistic, which has been helpful and stressful in equal measures, and my writing has been on the back burner.

But no more! New decade, new me! Or rather, new decade, returning to the old me who actually wrote things from time to time!

01a. Overwhelmed

I don’t have a dedicated update schedule for this blog – or, indeed, any idea of what I want to use it for other than promoting stuff I’ve written – but I will definitely be trying to create more interesting content for you in the future.

Thank you for your support! It’s great to be back!

~ Penny

“Personal is Political”: Out Now

“One of the first things we discover in these groups is that personal problems are political problems. There are no personal solutions at this time. There is only collective action for a collective solution.” ~ Carol Hanisch, 169

Here we have a collection of prose and poetry that aims to help you frame your personal ideals and problems into a global, politicised context.

Here we have three young writers who want to be taken seriously.

Here we want to start something.

Personal Is Political is an anthology collecting pieces by Liam Whear, Penny Gotch and Susan Wright, from Canterbury Christ Church University, on environmentalism, feminism, mental health, body image, identity, and more.

Artwork from Molly Penford.

Stay safe, and stay aware.

BUY IT NOW IN PAPERBACK OR ON KINDLE.

“Personal is Political” Trailer

You might have noticed that there was neither a Sunday Scribbling nor a Monday Musing post this week.

And I’m afraid there won’t be a Word Count Wednesday either.

I’m snowed under with university work and unfortunately, I just don’t have the time to write anything.

But I don’t want to leave you with nothing, so I’m going to share with you the trailer for my upcoming collaborative anthology, “Personal is Political”.

Stay safe, and stay aware.
