Don’t call it a comeback

Because that would be far too premature! It's been about 18 months since I've posted anything to this blog, and maybe a year since I feel like I've written anything meaningful. But there's still the constant buzz in my head of ideas, I'm just a bit crap at bothering to write them down anywhere!   … Continue reading Don’t call it a comeback

Z is for: Zomg it’s finished!

I'm cheating a little bit with this last one. I have a couple of ideas for how to do Z but everything I've had a go with so far hasn't worked or made me want to write more than two lines. That's it, a full month of updates looking at elements of the Old Crown. … Continue reading Z is for: Zomg it’s finished!

A-z month almost finished

Coming into the home stretch with my A-z month, and I've really enjoyed it. I've had most of the letter planned out since the start of the month, but changed a few of them as I got to them - if I'm not in the mood to write o  a certain topic, I have too … Continue reading A-z month almost finished

End of Week 1 of A-Z, what next?

Ok, so there's only been two posts, but I'm counting it as week one! I hope you're enjoying this little look into the world of the Old Crown setting that I've been working on. I've written a couple of days ahead now and I'm really happy with how they've turned out so far. I've managed … Continue reading End of Week 1 of A-Z, what next?

New look blog

Felt like changing things up a bit. I might try a few new looks or I might just stick with this one. All feedback welcome.

A – Z… April?

Ok, so I found out about the A-Z April thing a couple of weeks too late. How do I remedy this situation? Easy: I just have to do it in May! So, starting on May 1st and hopefully running every day through the month except Sundays, I shall be throwing up SOMETHING onto the blog, … Continue reading A – Z… April?

Writing 101, Day Three: Committing to a writing practice

I'm not entirely sure how to go about following the instructions here. According to Writing 101, I need to write about the three most important songs in my life. But of course, now I'm told to write about them, I can't even think of three important songs, never mind the most important. If I write … Continue reading Writing 101, Day Three: Committing to a writing practice

Writing 101, Day Two: Setting description

The rain tumbled down from the dark grey clouds, lightning flashing and thunder rolling. It poured from the eaves of the buildings in Queenstown, and poured from the thatched rooves as it did the beards and cowls of the people forced to walk the streets. On days like today, when the sun barely lightened the … Continue reading Writing 101, Day Two: Setting description

Writing 101, Day One: 20 minutes of freewriting

His eye jolted open at the sound of a distant screaming. His arms and legs were cold, his clothes and hair stuck to him with water. Saltwater and gritty sand covered his lips. He didn't know where he was. Razir had fallen asleep in his room at the inn, exhausted, fresh into port. He didn't … Continue reading Writing 101, Day One: 20 minutes of freewriting

Writing courses, Linux courses

I've decided to sign up to the Writing 201 course over at the Daily Post. It's focussed mostly on editing from what I can see, but there's some workshopping in there too. I'm debating working my way through Writing 101 as well, starting this weekend. I should be packing for the move, but I'm sure … Continue reading Writing courses, Linux courses
