You may have noticed that The Buzzin’ Bee has undergone a visual transformation. Do not be alarmed, and do not attempt to adjust your screen!
The new version of the site contains all the same content as its previous incarnation, but features a new, mobile-friendly design, allowing it to look just as good on your phone or iPad as on your computer. Take a look around and familiarise yourself with the new layout, and be sure to check out The Hive for information and some links to other websites that are important to me and may be of interest to you.
The About section has also been updated with a host of new information, including detailed instructions on commenting with the DISQUS system and downloading stories to your iPad or other tablet device.

“Destiny’s Child” has been writing itself in my head for several years.
What the Muse provided is not what I had first dreamed.
Extracts were submitted in March 2016 for peer group review to friends in the Creative Writing class at the Centre for Lifelong Learning at Strathclyde University.
Arising from this process I re-structured the opening chapter to make it more accessible, I hope.
Thank you, each and all.
Thanks also to our tutor David Pettigrew for his excellent suggestions.
And yet again, a million thanks to my friend Kareth Paterson for her edits.
“Death to CONJUNCTIONS!”

If you previously read “Car Share Club” you will know it contains DARK MATERIAL.
I was browsing through The Buzzin’ Bee files, chanced upon the old version and spotted some anomalies.
This new version corrects these, I hope, and I think that this new layout with chapters may prove more readable.
Sorry, but the DARK MATERIAL is still there. It was what my Muse provided.

Ah, well, at last, something completely different.
Over the past few months I have been snagged again by BBC Scotland’s “Scotland 2016” each evening, Mondays to Thursdays. This current affairs show is followed immediately by BBC UK’s “Newsnight” programme.
This viewing has been running in its groove, on and off, or a few years and has become a habit, if not yet another addiction.
Generally the reports do not make for happy viewing.
As has been said, what goes in, must. . .regurgitate?
Maybe I will revert to my old ways and drift back to La La Land there to watch old films, that comfy place where I already know the Happy Ending.
In the meantime.... Try “Then and Now”
