What I’m writing – Ready

One of the things I used to get all the time when I spoke about my first draft fetish was “I would love to write a novel. I have this idea…” That’s great. I mean that’s really great. An idea is the starting point for a novel. Without an idea, you’re screwed. You gotta have […]

What I’m writing – Getting back to it

I am NOT doing Camp NaNoWriMo. There. I said it. Not doing it. It does mean I have all this free April-time though. What I’ve learned is that I now have time to go back and revisit some of the stuff I haven’t finished. One of the most prominent pieces I haven’t finished is my […]

What I’m writing – the non-nano

Tomorrow sees the first of a month I would normally be excited about. That’s right – it’s Camp Nano time again. Only this time, they’re going to have to go ahead without me. Earlier this year I volunteered myself to do the 100k in 100 days challenge. I committed myself, despite knowing that my writing […]

What I’m (not) writing – All of the above

I have excuses. A lot of excuses. I’ve been absent from the blog, from other blogs, from my characters and the whole writerly part of my life really. The change in my work life squashed some of the creativity I had for a while and even though it sounds like a really negative thing, it […]

What I’m writing – choose your words carefully

I’ve been left high and dry by the muse who used to provide me with an abundance of ideas. *narrows eyes and raises eyebrow.* This week I have mostly been writing emails. To people at work. About work things. What I didn’t realise before (and perhaps should have considered before my ” Say Yes to […]

What I’m writing – Just write

You’ve sat down at your computer. You’ve done all that finger clicky bullshit people do on the TV when they’re about to do something creative (do you do that? Really? You know it’s not good for you, right?) You’ve got your coffee, cleaned the kitchen, hoovered the whole house, petted the cat until it has […]

What I’m writing – Oh, shiny!

Last week was not productive at all. The past couple of weeks have been like this mainly because things in my real life took a bit of a winding twist due to my “Say Yes to Stupid Shit” mantra. I did manage to spew out exactly 4000 words on Saturday night using my Bluetooth keyboard […]

What I’m writing – Eating custard creams

Maddy is hosting this week, so you’ll need to go over there to link up. If you want to chat about biscuits though, stay here. I am a biscuitoholic. I love them. Packets of them, gobfuls, dunked in sweet tea. I will consume vast amounts if I’m sad, happy, angry, relaxed… I’m not to be […]

What I’m writing – The River of Rejection

I am not an artist. This is about as “arty” as I get and even this is a child’s eye view of the world with added pretention – the stars are my manuscripts, the river is self-explanitory, the stick figure is actually a very close representation of me… I’m working on my Julianne book from […]
