My Short Story Is Almost Finished!

Somehow, amongst my full-time job, training for my charity event and my social life, I’ve managed to do a little bit of writing. Though horrendously small, the Cowboy Cafe short story has been extended with the story coming closer to an end. Annoyingly, I have come up with half a dozen more short story ideas…

Birthday Book Haul

I’m 24! Which means I’m still unbearably young and so should get on a write 50 best sellers before I croak it. Right? Well, the plan may be hindered by book hauls. You see, I like reading almost as much as I do writing. I’ve had to really put the books down to write the…

A Listening Whisper – Short Story Teaser

Wow, so I found an old story I wrote for school when I was something like 14. (Had to open it in Open Office because my ruddy Microsoft has expired as usual). So I’ve realised I had started typing it up because the original is a printed copy in my attic.  So here’s a snippet…

My Troubles with NaNoWriMo

Tragedy has struck me already. I am over 20,000 words behind! I started NaNoWriMo (National November Writing Month) on the 1st as with everyone else and was hitting a good 1.5k words a day. It was going so well, until I became swamped with work and neglected it. Something I can’t excuse. So what did…

The First Post!

Hello wordpress! I thought an introductory post is in order and a quick and easy way to dispel the pesky 404 error that keeps appearing. I have written 50/60 thousand words in a story that I’ve decided would be best presented as a series. Each week I will post an entry into the series and…
