Her Voice Pt 1 — Lifesfinewhine

Every night I was tormented by her voice telling me to find him. And I had tried- for weeks I had been searching for evidence that I could use against him. The man who had hurt her, the man who eventually took her life. “Please,” she begged. “What more do you want me to do?” […]Her [...]

A Classic Love Story

A Classic Love Story



I was not the kind of person anyone looks at twice. I don’t mean that in a quirky, average looking, clumsy hipster in a cheesy romance movie that no one notices until they do kind of way. I also don’t mean it in a self-deprecating way. I don’t mean it in any particular way because it’s simply a fact. I’ve always been just average. I got average grades in school, I have an average job with average pay, I have always and will always look just average, my family is average, my parents have average jobs and average lives, my friends are average with average jobs, my fashion sense is average. I just am AVERAGE. I’m not the girl that men chase halfway across the world hoping to make her fall in love with them, I’m not the girl everyone stares at when I walk into the room and…

Her- A Short Story

This was one of the first short stories I wrote and thought I would reblog it today.


I usually write blogging advice but as you probably know if you read yesterdays post I accidentally burnt my fingers and hand while cooking so I can’t type a lot right now and my blogging advice posts are quite detailed so they tend to be much longer. So, instead of writing a blogging advice post I decided to do something that I have wanted to do for a while now which is write a short story. I will save the blogging advice post for later on in the week when my hand/fingers are a bit more healed. I really hope you enjoy this post and if you do enjoy it please let me know in the comments below. It’s been a while since I’ve written a short story so I am very nervous about sharing this but I hope you enjoy it. I was inspired by Shweta Suresh who always…

New Word #16: Words Recently Learned

Really enjoyed learning some new words from this post and decided to share it with you guys so we can learn them together 😁

Haoyan Do

sprightly: lively; full of energy. I learned this word from Pooja here. It also shows up in William Wordsworth’s poem, “Along the margin of a bay:/Ten thousand saw I at a glance,/Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.”

bugbear: a cause of obsessive fear, irritation, or loathing. I learned this word from Pooja here.

calisthenics: gymnastic exercises to achieve bodily fitness and grace of movement. I learned this word from Heterodox Buddhist here.

sitch: a situation or state of affairs, usually a bad situation. I learned this word from Bonnyword Manor here. This word is not to be confused with snitch, which means to secretly tell someone in authority that someone else has done something bad, often in order to cause trouble.

plink: a short, sharp, metallic or ringing sound.
tendril: A slender threadlike appendage of a climbing plant. I learned…

Author Me (Jude Itakali) 14/05/2021

Hi everyone. It’s just under three days to the live release of my new book; CROSSROADS (Winds of love) on Amazon.

In this post, I’ll be sharing clips from the Pre-order blog promotion tour. The blogs and websites that hosted and promoted this book are amazing so I hope you read on and explore them.

I’ve written and placed some poetry within this post, which is close to a few themes that are found in the book.

The ocean rages and the falls cascade
Thrills rise, then plummet to impetuous depths
And I think of you
Where once there was love
Now pain remains

If you have been following my blog for a while you probably know that I really admire Jude’s blog and I am a huge fan of his writing. I was so happy to hear that he had put out…
