The writing, ideas and thoughts of Fiona J Phillips
The Pecking Order
Tom, Dick and Harry use Dick’s shed as a hideaway from their wives’ expectations but Wendy has other ideas for the space. Will she get her way and demolish the shed to make way for her summer house? Will Harry’s Star Wars collection remain safe in the attic? Will Bridget be sent away to live in a nursing home? Spend some time in the shed to find out. This is one of the new murder mystery plays that I wrote this year for my business, Murdering The Text. All three plays were commissioned by customers. Two have been performed so far. The last takes place in late November and has a Christmas theme. With four male characters and five female, you can find this new play on my website now.
I'm a very visual person. What I mean by this is that what I see affects me the greatest out of all my senses - colours, the way things move, the contrasts between light and darkness.

You can also find the board for my novel 'Haven Falling' on there too.
If you're a visual person like me, Pinterest can be a wonderful place to source inspiration for your writing.

Google to find out more.
Whoa! The internet was teeming with entries on bullet
journals – how to start one, how to organise one, where to buy one, and how to
make your bullet journal look adorably stylish. How had I not come across this
If you’re a bullet journal virgin like I was, then let me
explain. A bullet journal is an organisational tool that captures
your to-do-list, diary, thoughts and really anything else you need to capture,
in a written format, i.e. a notebook, not a computer file. How to Bullet Journal from bulletjournal.com
“A notebook?” I hear you say. “Isn’t that, well, old-fashioned
and time-consuming? I can keep all that information on my phone and computer.”
