And because one is never enough…

Wednesday, March 31st, 2021

I like doing two projects – mainly because sometimes it is hard to focus and swapping back and forth I find can help. So the second project is called The Helix Seeds though I am still a little unsure of the title as it may not be accurate enough. It is a novel or rather […]

Personalising The Writing

Monday, September 21st, 2020

I had a bit of a contradiction moment – get note pads with tear out sheets so there is no pressure for the writing to be coherent or chronological etc… then I thought but I want it to be obvious who’s note book is who’s – so me and the youngest have decorated the pads. […]

Getting Things Rolling

Tuesday, September 15th, 2020

I have tried and failed to really get writing this year – mainly due to various health problems, not least of which was the covid. I have written about this on other blogs and barriers it has popped up but I feel my prose writing has probably taken the biggest hit especially the Punk’s Universe. […]

Slight Failure and Procrastination

Wednesday, November 14th, 2018

To cut a long story short – I ended up with work work to do and kid stuff which ate my writing time in the first part of the month – I am hoping the second half is going to be better – so much for managing a one week victory 🙁 Also for the […]

Nano Begins!!! 2018

Thursday, November 1st, 2018

It is the first of November and I did not manage to stay away for midnight – I was just too tired – to be fair to me I had one full day off in October and I was working late nights so it was unsurprising. But I did wake up at 4:30 am and […]

GothNoWriMo 2018

Monday, October 1st, 2018

As a warm up to the National Novel Writing Month – known affectionally as NaNo I shall be doing another of my little writing traditions – GothNoWriMo. This started out just being horror and gothic fiction but I have co-opted it as a lot of the Punk’s Universe is quiet dark. And of course the […]

Week One of GothNoWriMo 2017

Monday, October 9th, 2017

I broke the 10 k barrier – I wrote over 10, 000 words but I will have less time towards the end of the month and hammered most of the words out whilst being too sick to get out of bed for any length of time! I have no idea how many words I will […]
