A Post of My Own Prose

by Anna Blanch on March 17, 2011

So it’s been a while since i’ve written a post of my own prose. 

did that sound as nerdy to you as it did to me?…let’s try again, shall we?


I’ve been taking one step and then another on my thesis work of late, which often really means writing one word or sentence than another. I’ll write a follow-up post to my ones over the last month lamenting the challenges of the PhD at the moment and how “out of love” I was with it all. Some things have shifted there. And Praise God for that. Still a long way to go, but it’s amazing how writing is such a physical and psychological activity for me. Yep, i’m weird like that….or maybe I’m just still learning about the way I work.


I’ve been over at Transpositions quite a bit of late..apart from Transpositions Tidbits: Aesthetics and the Church, I was really glad to be able to write about just one of the ways in which my research on Nesbit’s poetry might offer some insight into some contemporary movements within the church to be social justice orientated and community focused as we share the love of Christ. So if you want to know what I think   Jesus Needs New PR, Church Marketing Sucks, and Stuff Christians Like have in common with E.Nesbit and, maybe very strangely, Christian Dior, take a look at Victorian Poetry, Social Justice, and New Media Satire of Christian Culture.

Finally, I’ve been posting some of my photography on Flikr and in the albums of Goannatree’s facebook group. This creative outlet has been really wonderful as I think through appreciating the world around me. Here’s a little taste of some of the recent object based images I’ve been working on. I’m really looking forward to more people photos soon – the weather in Scotland is a killer for that…
