I failed at NaNoWriMo 2011, but it isn’t all bad

First things first, happy new year and welcome to 2012! I hope everyone had a pleasant Christmas. This is a bit of belated post, really should have done this in December but I haven’t written anything since November after NaNoWriMo ended. If you don’t know what NaNoWriMo is, well it’s a month you’re meant to […]

Where is that writing niggling feeling gone?

Now I know what it’s like to not be a writer (even a perpetual amateur like me). It’s quite liberating. No agonising over not writing, no overthinking on words and scenes and meanings. Freedom to choose what I spend my time doing. Is this what it’s like all the time for people who don’t write? […]


One of the positive things for me that has come out using Google+, was when I was complaining about my inability to make time to write, between early starts, a full time job and two kids, my wife and myself are pretty exhausted by the time they’re in bed. It was suggested by some1 to […]

It’s quiet in here!

Blame Google+. I do. Putting that side I shall be trying to do some posts over the next few weeks. I’ve set myself a “word count” for each day and I’ve been hitting it more often than not (I post about it on G+ for those interested). But I’ve focused on one big writing and […]


(I wrote this shortly after coming back from my holidays in July. Not sure why I didn’t decide to post it, probably post-holiday blues). Back from holidays and I’m only a few days in work and it feels like an age. So Sunday night (which is actually a few weeks back now), last day before […]

For fun or for success?

I’ve been thinking about this in the back of mind for a few days, but I find myself looking at my projects in two ways. Pet Projects or Products. Related Posts:Forgive me Internet, for I have been lax. It has been over six months since I did any work on TDO Mini Forms…Going on holidays […]

I’d go mad for an iPad with but one change!

Yep. There is one change that would make me buy an iPad. No it’s not implementing Flash. While I can live without Flash, I dislike the motive behind Apple not supporting Flash. And Flash games too, some of them are fun. But no, it’s not the lack of Flash. It’s not that Apple are becoming […]

Crossposted: How nasty do you want your Demons?

I know, I haven’t been blogging. Many excuses that no-one cares about. To fill the void that is this blog, here is a recent post I made on lostheroesrpg.com. Enjoy! I’ve been working my way through the current draft of the setting. I had hoped this would only take a week or two, but it’s […]

Going on holidays tomorrow! :)

So I’m going on holidays tomorrow, for a goodly period of time (but not too long). Can’t wait to get out of here and stop worrying about the recession, work, weather and everything else for a little bit. I’m looking forward to it, not least because it’s time with my family but also because it’s […]

Energy levels down, normal service will resume later

I don’t particularly won’t to post to complain about being sick. I’m not bad or in a dangerous condition, but I’ve been hit by a continual stream of colds, flus and infections this winter. I’m genuinely frustrated by it and it’s been the whole family, not just me. This recent one I got from my […]
