I’m still on my break from any major blogging but I am noting ideas down so stay tuned for content when I officially return. However, this week I have reached 500 twitter followers! (well 501 as of now) which I am pleased as punch about and just wanted to give a shout out. When setting out … Read more500 Twitter Followers!
I love analogies! I use analogies, similes, and metaphors a lot, mostly in my written projects but occasionally when I talk as well. Explaining situations or a certain topic is something I can find difficult at times and so if I can make a comparison it gets my thoughts across much clearer and easier. These … Read morePost #112 ~ A Steam Locomotive
Dyspraxic Characters (A new page!) This is a follow-up from my last post; dyspraxicfantastic.com/post-111-dyspraxic-characters/ where I went into detail about the characters who are potentially dyspraxic (at least from my perspective). I had the thought that this topic holds great potential that I could tap into for my blog. The current problem is as my blog expands … Read morePost #111b ~ Dyspraxic Characters ~ Extra Thought
Dyspraxic Characters (or really, the lack of Dyspraxic Characters): Dyspraxic characters; where are they? There are certainly many theories of characters that could have Dyspraxia (something I’ve gone into more depth later in this post).

A few posts back I talked about Tillie, the inspirational engine from my childhood. This has spurred me on to do a post about another character from my childhood – Warrior from the TV show Tugs.

Intro A bit on the early side, but Autism Awareness Month is close and I thought to myself I really should do a post about it. I was diagnosed with Asperger’s/Higher Functioning Autism after I started up my Dyspraxia blog and the Dyspraxia label was a part of my childhood. For that reason, I associate … Read morePost #109 ~ Autism Awareness Month
Improved ‘Positives of Dyspraxia’ Chart Dyspraxia does have its positive points. After all, it is one of the reasons why I started this blog in the first place. The positive points are overshadowed by the stigma that comes with the territory of a label. It is these positives and negatives that make us unique people … Read morePost #108 ~ The Positive Attributes
5 Years of Dyspraxia Blogging This month marks the fifth anniversary of DyspraxicFantastic going live; it has been quite the adventure so far. I can’t believe it’s been over half a decade since I started it all off! Hasn’t been a smooth trip in any sense of the word, but each obstacle has made me … Read morePost #107 ~ 5 Years Live!
Inspiration is the main focus here, but this post is going to be very different and unusual from what I usually do. The people who give us inspiration There are people who give us inspiration and help us with difficult times. Sometimes it is people in our own lives – I’ve talked before about the … Read morePost #106 ~ 🚂 Inspiration (“I think I can”)
“The Beast from the East” For once a topical post from me! I hail from the south-western part of the UK and as such we don’t get much snow. As expected, the northern parts of England and beyond get a fair amount of snow. When the southern part gets hit it’s mainly on the moors. … Read morePost #105 ~ Dyspraxia vs. The Forces of Nature (Snow)
