The Bureau of Small Observation

Small Observation is a writing project I’ve been doing the last few weeks; little snippets of people I see out and about.

It’s emailed out every weekday morning, and you can sign up at


I’m quite enjoying it. The slew of “30 days of…” exercises has proven to me that I need regular things to keep my brain in a good state, and it’s a bit of a throwback to old projects like The Polaroid Press. Zine-y, but different.

Coupled with my very occasional walking blog, it’s probably the main way I’ll be writing in public for the foreseeable.

I made a stamp for it too. I like having tokens for writing projects; exactly enough clutter to completely remove any pressure to print them.
