Slums of Victory

‘Everyone in the streets were hurrying to and fro; their atmosphere was dark – even the brightest pink was lowered in hue to a brown, there were many clustered around the institutions peeking into the windows at attractions that were deemed horrendously entertaining and without sparing a penny to these poor families they carried along their way hastily to get out of the mess, down the dark, grey roads as if there wasn’t a space on the pavement; however, there was enough space for a gang – they prefered being under horse-foot than under the windows of Victorian London. These were the slums.’

Here’s a little paragraph of description I wrote just to flex my writing creativity a bit (not just for homework!). I look back through all my Pages documents and unfinished novels and it has come to me that I have not written like this, in a narrative, for quite a while! Anyway, this is something I did enjoy reading myself which is an added bonus.

I’m sorry about the lack of content both on my Instagram and blog this past week. I lay down to sleep on Wednesday evening and remembered what I hadn’t done – get a post up. I wrote on my hand in biro and kept telling myself ‘do it, do it!’ and then passed another day and so I came to the conclusion that nothing would be on ordinary schedule [oh well, you probably didn’t miss it XD]. I’ve also not been taking as many photos as daylight is slipping away from us but through this coming weekend I will do as much as I can.

As you might be aware I post on Mondays, Wednesdays (poems) and Fridays at 2:00am (UK time) it’s a bit of a funny time to schedule but that forces me to write in the days before. I’m sorry you only got one [bad] post this week.
