Living without 'The Mitchells'

12 Nov 09. It has now been about a month that I have been living without a television. I only had 4 and a half channels to choose from anyway, as my digibox sat in its box, awaiting a decent arial. It isn't just the adverts that constantly brainwash you into buying products, but television itself, telling you, demanding you, to watch more of it. Have now cancelled my tv license and am enjoying the quiet nights. I have enough stress in my life - I certainly don't need the Mitchells in my life right now, nor the Beales, nor the Butchers, or any of them from Corrie. And maybe if I work hard enough, I might actually have a life ! At least my thoughts are starting to feel my own.
16 Nov. Everyone I have spoken to thinks I must be insane to be living without a television. I have never felt more sane in my whole life !!! What's more, I am back inside my own life.

Strong visions

30 Oct 09. My tv has busted so I am going without one. I am receiving strong visions for my 'orwellian trilogy' - alot of scary stuff - although it's all closely related to reality.

'Jane Air is set to put the frighteners on her readers with her Orwellian trilogy' available 2015.

My biggest CYBER - relationship of them all...

I have lately been thinking about the whole nature of cyber-relationships and what live chat rooms are all about. I now realize that I hardly have any time leftover for relationships as I'm far too busy with my biggest cyber-relationship of them all -


I have been cyber-relating all along - everywhere I to go now, my
publicity is strong...

Life takes over...

6th August. Am supposed to be writing my heartbreak diary blog but as my creative and publicity levels are high at the moment I am taking advantage of them.

My poetry will be connected with this year's 'Cleethorpes in Bloom' - will keep you posted on this nearer the time.

Had a publication today by Forward Press. 'The Christmas Binge' will be included in the anthology 'The Chessboard Of Life', to be published on 31 October 2009.

I have also been spending time in nature, when the weather permits me. Have written a new nature poem today, posted at my local media blog spot and over at My Telegraph, in the creative writing section and, of course, a posting of it here...

Stepping Through Cyberspace

Stepping Though Cyberspace
Cyberspace is all I need - Jane Air

Friday, 3 July 2009


Delays in the collection include the weather - the sun invites me out and I end up spending too much time outdoors.
I daydream too much. It will come as no surprize that most of my daydreams involve my cyberspace existence.

3 July 09. Whenever I get a letter in the post addressed to 'Miss Air', I know that it is likely to be a publication. Forward Press will be publishing 'A Gothic Take On The Landscape' this September.

'Alice in Wonderland' illustated take on the economy...

The Never Ending Tea Party...
Finally, this one is ready to go !

Background notes :

I redid the jam tarts using a deeper, richer red to make sure that the jam tarts were really really jammy. Hope you will agree with me that they are indeed, really jammy jam tarts.
The title for this poem has changed since I first wrote this poem. I feel that this new title has a more overall relevance and isn't just intended for the tea parties that the senior bankers have been having at the taxpayer's expense, but also our MP's.

MP's expenses - Bottle Bar Nine extract

Seeing that the issue of MP's expenses is the hot media topic for today, I have decided to offer an extract from In the past, I have worked at both the Conservative and the Labour party conferences doing bar and catering related work.

...I am put on a makeshift bottle bar
Near the function marquee
But in there
The booze is free
So no-one comes to me

It is a relatively quiet
Opening night
But my next few shifts
Are a different story...

My bottle bar is shifted
To a busy location
In a corridor bend
Between Mountbatten bar
And the library

My takings are low
In the early evening
Come 3 am
When everyone is battling
To get to the main bar
I become an absolute

They still gasp at the jacked up
Prices of my bottled beer
‘And I want a receipt with that please dear!’
Don’t they all !
Someone even wanted my entire till roll...

Gonewiththewinds - A rewrite

Although I will be keeping this ebook available for those of you who come across it, I do in fact, have plans for a rewrite once I have the time, energy and funds to do so. The focus of the new ebook will be on the break-up drama and the ecological poetry will be moved to another website. I am hoping to make the drama even grittier and more tense.

My Red Shoes

My Red Shoes
9 March 09
After reading that some people who have published themselves through print-on-demand companies don’t manage to sell any copies at all, I am now feeling very nervous. It has wrenched my head from out of the clouds and given me a reality-check-shock.

As usual I have all my eggs in just one basket and am now starting to wonder whether blindly pursuing my dream is leading me down the path to my own financial ruin. I just hope my Dorothy red shoes are enough to save me.

Drowned Rat

Drowned Rat
Someone has described me today as being a 'drowned rat' with my constant crisis of confidence. My wavering lack of confidence mirrors the lack of confidence in the economy at the moment, and every time we think the tide is finally turning upwards, it pulls back down again to even deeper lows.
I have no kitchen sink today as my kitchen is in the process of being renovated so I have to use my bathroom to do my washing up. When I say bathroom, I mean a badly built shed attached to my house with an ancient bath suite dumped in it. I even take my jewellery out of there when there is a strong wind about, like last night, just in case the whole thing gets blown over, Wizard of Oz style.

Back on track

It's 26 Feb. Sorry about my last blog - abit of a crisis of confidence and writer's block. Am back on track today - have absorbed myself in my last two economy poems. I have been advised to scrap these last two and just get the collection out but that doesn't feel right to me. It takes me a while to digest what is going on in the economy - that is all.
Royal Bank of Scotland shares have shot up today on announcing a £ 24 billion pound loss - it's strange what an upside down, topsy turvy world the markets seem to live in.

Under Pressure

It's the 23rd Feb. I'm so annoyed with myself. I'm under so much pressure to get my collection out that I feel I have to rush my last poems - which I hate doing ! I wish I understood the economy - instead I am listening and feeling all the undercurrents - the angry comments at media websites - of everyone's suffering and vented anger . I wish I could capture it all - then it would truely be national. Instead, I can't give my best because of being pushed into such a tight financial corner - being squeezed and stressed out all the time - worrying seems to take up quite a big portion of my brain. Oh hell !

'Squeezed like a lemon'

'Squeezed like a lemon'
( from my astrological transit guide )
I am becoming a writing machine. I no longer have the luxury of gloomy feelings or self-doubt. The credit crunch has well and truly crunched me and I am now writing for my life. I can't wait to return to writing blossom-smelling poetry - away from all this hell on earth and stuff of nightmares economic poetry.

Mind you, the poem I am currently working on ( meant to be two final poems but due to being 'squeezed like a lemon' by the crunch, it could well be just one ) is proving quite fun to write. Quite a nasty edge to it in fact - a few satirical knife twists - as if the credit crunch has actually gotten inside my head. And IF Lloyds is nationalized, then I have a killer line ready and waiting - to add to the end of the poem.
