I found this 2 hr collection of fantasy music great to write to. It helps me to imagine I am in a film whilst writing

New Year… er same old story?

Sunday, January 1st, 2017

Another year has passed and I still don’t really have anything finished for The Punk’s Universe other than a few flash fictions and short stories (to be fair there is actually quiet a lot of these which can be read on Magenta Monster under the category The Punk’s World). In 2019 I will have been […]

Nano 2016 week 2

Thursday, November 17th, 2016

Well I was doing really well and then the US elections happened and bam!!! No writing. Reasons for this are multiple. a) I ended up writing lots of political poems, essays and so on and then went and performed them and ended up being swept up in the poetry world again. b) It was pretty […]

Week 1 – NaNo 16

Monday, November 7th, 2016

Week 1 is done and as I have been saying to nanoing friends – I’m finding it hard to work out word counts as some is written in long hand, some is dictated on the phone, some is on blogs and some is in files on the laptop. So unlike previous years I am trying […]

How To Still Write

Friday, October 21st, 2016

A bit of a spanner has been thrown into the works I had a head injury last year and have been struggling with various things – went to a specalist at the hospital and they have said I am doing to much and need more rest etc.. to help my brain recover. It’s sustained concentration […]

Snowballing Time

Friday, October 14th, 2016

I thought I would try dividing the book up into sections and then building it up from those sections and hopefully watch the story snowball to completion! So I started by deciding that it is divided into three section then I split those sections into number of chapters and rough length/size of those chapters. I […]

GothNoWriMo 2016

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

I always do a little extra nano challenge – this is GothNoWriMo which is a challenge to write gothic lit in a month. I stretched the meaning of Goth slightly and went with alternative instead. Because I tend to write trilogies or books in 3 parts, I start new series within the Punk’s Universe every […]

Z4 – The Blue Lotus

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016

The Blue Lotus will be the novel I’ll be working on in October for GothNoWriMo which is a kind of unofficial spin off of NaNoWriMo but has a thing where you decided on your own goal between 30-70, 000 words for the month. The Blue Lotus is the forth in the Zombie Quintette series of […]

Nano 2016 – The Plan

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

This is the planning notebook and within it are plans! I started by thinking about which of the many story ideas I should run with – I knew the story would be Punk Universe based as my nano projects always are! But I wasn’t sure what within that universe it would be. Having suffered a […]

Nano Prep

Thursday, September 1st, 2016

It is September and that is the month I attempt to plan my nano in these days – this is mainly because I do a kind of double writing challenge. They started off as separate things but as I have progressed with writing the Punk’s Universe using the writing challenges it has become something a […]
