What is a Janerism?

So here's a question - what is a Janerism?

I'm not entirely sure. I'm somewhat confused. But apparently it's something I do a lot.

Now this description has been assigned to me by author, Karen Wyld, from my writer's group on Google +.

I'm slightly worried because the term reminds me of a Malapropism. Now if you've not heard of the term Malapropism before -basically it's derived from this mad old bag who was in Richard Sheridan's 1775 comedy The Rivals.

Again, I'm slightly worried.

Now, because I am a discreet and subtle person, there's not many pictures of me on the net. But I have this awful feeling that people think I look like this:
Well the hat's not far off the truth. On a cold day and with a hangover.

Or maybe they think I look like this:
Well she's a cheery looking lady. In a sort of weird stalker way.

Or maybe even this:

Hmm...maybe we're getting closer to the truth here.

Okay, I want to be entirely honest with you folks. Because that's the way I am. And currently there's the big rush of people doing selfies for breast cancer. So I figure it's time I gave you an up to date photo of me. So here I am:

As I said, I am nothing but scrupulously honest.


  1. Ah, so that's what you look like! I'd have guessed the one with the axe, myself...

  2. You're right, Martin. Maybe a little more gleeful though. Think Jack Nicholson in The Shining!


I am always delighted to receive comments!
