The author

Lost Sentences is a personal blog written by me, Emma Cragg.

Let’s start with a bit about the stuff I’m interested in outside of my work.

I’m a foody – I love to cook and eat delicious meals.

I’m a sports fanatic – I play, I watch, I listen to almost anything.

I’m an avid reader – mostly fiction, but I’ll give anything a try.

I’m a maker - I love to make things, both physical and digital.

Simple things make me very happy. Things like looking at the moon, a tasty pint of beer, being by the sea or getting my favourite seat in the cinema.

I like to look on the bright side of life.

On the off chance you’re interested in my work, here’s a few of the things I do:

  • coaching with individuals and teams
  • facilitation of workshops and meetings
  • content design, copywriting and editing

The content

Many of the posts on this blog will be short observations about what’s going on in the world around me. You’ll also find quotes from the things I’m reading and maybe, occasionally, a few photos. I like making lists too.

I’ve taken inspiration from Simon Collison’s Stream and Doug Belshaw’s

The title

I have a [bad] habit of regularly not finishing sentences. Someone I used to live with once suggested I keep a record of these lost sentences. I liked the idea and the name has kind of stuck with me through all previous efforts at personal blogging.

The theme

I’ve adapted the Carbontwelve theme for My minimal changes include a new colour scheme and moving blockquotes inline for larger screens.

Elsewhere on the web

There’s more info about my work on my website, where you can also sign up to receive my musings on personal development in the form of a monthly newsletter. You can link to my main social accounts from there too.

You can also find me over on, and less frequently on Mastodon.
