Twelth Night

Saturday, December 19th, 2009

As part of my research I watched a film of Shakespeares Twelth Night – I struggled following the language but due to studying it at school sort of knew what the over all story line was. The film itself was done fantastically! And I was actually highly impressed with it! This is one of the […]

Urine as Hair Dye

Friday, December 18th, 2009

I was thinking that the Punks hair isn’t actually going to be a natural red but that it would go that colour if bleached – a sort of strawberry blonde as it were – so then I thought how is she going to work dying her hair in the middle of Tudor England – its […]

Reading History

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

Whilst writing the Snow Crash post I started to wonder why I hadn’t found any cyber-punk to read until I was in my mid 20’s. I think the answer to this is partly I learned to read at the age of 12 and yes I know that’s really late but that’s when I learnt to […]

What’s My Story About?

Sunday, December 13th, 2009

From discuessing my novel when I should have been writing at the write-ins I discovered that my story is a Coming of Age story – first of the main character a.k.a. The Punk, secondly of the civalisation and the ‘human’ races and then of Life in the universe. This was a shock to me as […]

The Punk in Pink has expanded to a series and not a small narrow focus one at that – so I have found myself with several areas I need to research! These are relivent to the novel The Punk in Pink do to it controlling the over all arch of the story which shapes the […]

King Henry and his Six Wives

Friday, December 11th, 2009

This old 70’s film was abit tricky to follow initially as I found it hard to work out who was King but I soon got into the swing of it! King Henry on his death bed remembers his life including his wives. It made me feel sorry for Henry and his wives – but especially […]
