Look Up

We're behind, which for those of you on Social media will be no surprise. My second computer, pretty much essential for remote work and gaming, has become nothing more than an expensive paperweight. It has forced a fairly significant rethink not only of working space but of the next few weeks, and it is with … Continue reading Look Up

Stones in the Road

This should have been published on Friday, and although it's sitting in the blog with that date, I'll be honest, it was posted on the night of the 11th. I managed a week, with accountability, and then reality crashed the party. Thursday and Friday became a blur. I took a previously-scheduled and much needed Mental … Continue reading Stones in the Road

NaNoWriMo Update : Day Seven

It's a week since we started and, not gonna lie, it's been a total nightmare. The novel's pretty much writing itself. Nobody is on fire yet. The plot's solid, THERE ARE JOKES but also some important philosophical posturing. That's not the problem. It's the rest of my life that's the issue. https://twitter.com/ChuckWendig/status/1060203700906614784 I'm literally drowning in … Continue reading NaNoWriMo Update : Day Seven

Not a Job

I have a confession to make, well several actually. The main one is to do with my mistaken belief that writing certain combinations of fiction at once is actually doable, and there won't be any clutter or overspill in my brain.

Remember when I said everything was ready for NaNoWriMo tomorrow? Well, it really was for weeks and weeks and then suddenly BOOM out of left field came a moment of pure random. https://twitter.com/AlternativeChat/status/1057234458477318144 Previously, there was a poll: https://twitter.com/AlternativeChat/status/1056982865064407040 ...and then there was some shonky organisation yesterday. https://twitter.com/AlternativeChat/status/1057217762307792896 https://twitter.com/AlternativeChat/status/1057210660147335169 Well, it's now all up there … Continue reading Oops I did It Again

In Pursuit of Happiness

Yup, it's that time again. November is (checks calendar) NEXT WEEK and so, we need a graphic for the upcoming 'write a novel in a month' journey and some definitive idea of what the fuck is going on. Fortunately, both of these things are well in hand. If you don't know what NaNoWriMo is, here's … Continue reading In Pursuit of Happiness
