Covers for my novels – let’s take a break

Oh, the editing process. How I love and loath it all at once. It's like trying to glue worms together into a pretty neat line but their slippery skin keeps shrugging off all the glue. On good days, it's like shooting rainbows from a cat-cannon. It's fun, except for the part where it drives you… Continue reading Covers for my novels – let’s take a break

Moar Filming a Short Film

I slept well last night. Even if the rain has made me ill. After hiking across half of Southampton to reach a graveyard and back, I have learnt how wonderfully nasty passers-by can be. If people believe that walking their shitting and pissing dog around a cemetery is perfectly fine (or letting their children drive… Continue reading Moar Filming a Short Film

Well, I've personally found this week to be an up hill (mountain) struggle. I had such a mental break down at one point that I was actually convinced… Continue reading #NaNoWriMo Day 17, Dwarves deserve love too, y’know, and the stabbing finally happened

It’s like Rule 34 of the internet, but replace ‘pr0n’ with ‘fan-fiction’

Rule 34: if it exists, there's porn of it; or so says the laws of 4Chan and, for the most part, it is bizarrely true. It can be in any format - pictures, artwork, literature etc. but I'll talk more about this in a minute. Hello. I can be a massive fanfreak, and when I… Continue reading It’s like Rule 34 of the internet, but replace ‘pr0n’ with ‘fan-fiction’
