I’ve had a really productive week. During week days before work I’ve manged about 200 words a day. This weekend I’ve written nearly thousand words. In addition to that I’ve edited two chapters of James Harrington’s latest book and written a blog post. If only every week was like this then I’ll be finished in […]Read more "I’m a writing machine"
I had said I was going to post this today. I had looked at it a few months ago and was happy with it. This is the one I read to my writing group, which got a fairly good reception although I have tweaked it based on the advise I revived.

In the past few weeks I’ve had ideas for another two books not contacted to my original series, thanks brain! Now you might think […]Read more "My brain hurts"

They gave me some very useful, if conflicting advice. My book is finished, sort of. It starts fairly well, it has twists that I hope […]Read more "Not sure which way I should go"
March has been an awful month for me. Mainly because of my job, all my course work was due. This meant no time for writing. I pretty much worked seven days a week which left no time for my blog or my book. To make it worse I got a virus and took three days […]Read more "WELL THAT WASN’T TOO BAD"
