Last week I set myself a few targets for things I wanted to get done over the course of this week: Think of a title for Boiling Seas 2Start cutting words from Boiling Seas 2Start filling the plot holes left behind by all my editing/my initial writingAnd write a short story for Artemix's Chain Project … Continue reading Lockdown: Tokyo Drift #11 – Productivity Success?
As I considered doing a few weeks ago, I've taken the week off work to get on with some writing... which unfortunately means I actually need to be productive for the next week instead of just lounging about the house and painting Warhammer. Not that I won't be doing some of that anyway, given my … Continue reading Lockdown: Tokyo Drift #11 – Productivity Ahoy..?
Happy Easter, everybody. It's always nice to sit back and celebrate the day that Christ was hatched again from a giant chocolate egg. It's even sunny outside. If you fancy something to do with your eyes while eating copious amounts of chocolate, why not take a look at this short story? It's another one I … Continue reading Short Story: Planetkiller
Clocks went forward. Forgot. Slept less. Spent today writing applications and editing short stories and trying to write more stuff. Insufficient brain for proper blog post. Apologies. Did finish Mankind Divided DLCs again this week though. Good storytelling. Sad there's no more. Actual thoughts will come later. Also did this Turing Challenge thing which was … Continue reading Lockdown: Tokyo Drift #10 – Burned Out
If you've been reading these posts for a while, you'll know that I really like Deus Ex. Specifically the modern games (I own the original and Invisible War, but I just haven't been able to get into them). At the start of this latest lockdown - which seems like forever ago - I replayed Human … Continue reading Lockdown: Tokyo Drift #9 – Side-Stories
I have long been a master of procrastination.* This manifests itself in my writing. Often. I have two finished novels that need significant edits so they're ready to send to agents/publish - and that's not including Untitled Second Boiling Seas Book, or the still-unfinished Salvage Seven. I'm also working on a short story for an … Continue reading Lockdown: Tokyo Drift #8 – Getting My Act Together
Slowly but surely, I've been working my way through the many books I bought/was given around my birthday and Christmas. (As well as Carried Away, which I have almost finished, honest, Ethan). It's been a slow process, because new books keep coming out, people kept giving me more, and the lack of commute for the … Continue reading Lockdown: Tokyo Drift #7 – Rambling About Books
I'd almost forgotten about World Book Day. In fairness it hasn't been quite as relevant to me, a supposedly adult man, since I was at school and it was actually an Event. But walking through the shop the other day and finding a stand of the new books brought it all back in the best … Continue reading Lockdown: Tokyo Drift #6 – World Book Day
In order to take a break from Boiling Seas and editing, I've been writing some shorter pieces. The one I'm currently working on is going to be an entry for the wonderfully named Tales from the Magician's Skull - I haven't written proper sword-and-sorcery for quite a while now, and it's nice to stretch myself … Continue reading Short Story: Vigil
Short one this week, as I have chocolate-eating and old-film-watching obligations with my partner. But as it's that time of year again, I started thinking about writing romances and all that jazz... and the fact that I've never really done so. At least I've never done so and been happy enough with it to actually … Continue reading Lockdown: Tokyo Drift #6 – On Romance
