Hello, welcome to my desktop... please browse around to look inside my brain. You can drag windows and icons around just like ‘the real thing’. I made this site look like a Windows Classic desktop because that is where I learned to do everything I know how to do.

Mutual Dislike

Mutual Dislike is a cool zine of short fiction printed in a tabloid newspaper. It's the best newspaper you'll ever read...

At the moment the most important thing I'm making is MUTUAL DISLIKE, a zine of flash-fiction printed inside a tabloid newspaper. Special bonus surprise: it's free. "Fiction is my passion," said Georgia.

ALICE is a story with images and, honestly, I made it as a secret santa gift

MODERN LIVING is one of the first books I made, and it explains how to live a modern life

ABINOX is some long-fiction inpired by this album of 8bit music. Each chapter is named after a track on the album. It's about hedonistic space travellers, I guess. 

PEPSI KING is s series of stories I wrote on a typewriter, all of which fit onto a single side of A4, and followed very similar themes. E.g. there was always a king in it, and usually something happens with pepsi

The SER is a personal anthology of short and flash fiction. It was my first purge of ideas after I decided that writing was a thing I really enjoyed. My writing is much less serious than this now.

GIRL MOTHER FATHER is about a girl who runs away from home and receives weird notes from her ghost mother, and annoying letters from her inept father

I like making random crap sometimes; it has literally no use but it's fun to mess around with or look at for like five minutes. I'm not very good at coding so like, DON'T look at the code and DO expect it to be broken in some way. Sorry etc.
            
STUFF WHERE I HAD TO WRITE CODE:
            
    *Boardgame name generator
    *Phone battery simulator
    *click for fish
    *movie sequel generator
            
I also wrote the code for this very website, so again, sorry if stuff breaks during your dynamic online experience
            
			

Present Day

I'm doing all the writing for a game called Wintercast. I also produce a quarterly zine of fiction which is printed in tabloid newspaper format. For content that is easier to digest, please sign up to my substack; it is hilarious and informative.

I'm a freelance writer. If you want to *do business* you should probably have a look at a slightly more proper CV
			
I do all kinds of cool writing and research: I've produced reports for Turn2us (helping them with their data strategy) and Hattusia (about how to build tech with ethics in mind). I also work with Alix Dunn to make her newsletter really good. 

What I like to write about: everything that is going wrong in the tech industry. See my Substack, Horrific/Terrific, which rates the week in tech on a five-point scale. 

Likes:
+ Computery nostalgia
+ Things that are broken and don’t work properly (reminds us that we suck sometimes, and not everything has to be functional to be acceptable)
+ Dystopia (social media is in charge of you, we’re all going to die at the hands of trans-human police, etc.)

Dislikes:
- Machine recommendations (do not presume to ‘know me’; you are an algorithm)
- Gender reveal cakes
- Healing crystals (it’s fine they’re just pretty rocks but they don’t do healing so please stop it, Gwenyth)

My writing style goes from so casual that it’s almost rude and grammatically incorrect (sorry not sorry), to delightfully playful, and then sometimes I take it to some really opulent places where I use words like ‘unbeknownst’ and ‘agilify’.

Here's like a list of some of the stuff I’ve written:
