Simple Story Structure

I have quite a few friends who often say to me, ‘I don’t understand how you can come up with the ideas and stories on the fly‘ or ‘I wish I was more creative, I can write well but I can’t come up with my own ideas‘. It is true that coming up with ideas…

Styling and Character Profiling

One habit that I have that catches some people off guard at times, is the amount of work I put into creating the characters for the worlds of my stories. I’m not saying that no one out there does more than I do, because they obviously do, but what I am saying is that I…

Progress, Projects and a Trip Away

As far as my weeks go, this one has been interesting from a work standpoint. Firstly regarding the pilot script for Dolos Blue, I’ve nearly completed it now so I’m very hopeful that it will be finished for the end of next week at the latest. Also, I’ve managed to complete the next chapter of…

Project Two: Blackwell

Last week I went into a little detail about The Wanderer Chronicles. This week  thought I would follow that up with my ‘Work In Progress’ novel, Blackwell. Blackwell follows the struggles of an exiled sorcerer and a vampire lawyer as they strive to stop the ever-growing threat of the paranormal invading our world through the…

There’s No ‘I’ In Team

Following on from my previous post; Networking…It’s Who You Know, I want to go into a little detail about my experiences with working on my own and as part of a team. I’ve always been a team player, from my days at school as part of the rugby team, to my current employment where I work…

Project One: The Wanderer Chronicles

Hello, I said that I was going to try to get this new series underway and here we go! I thought I should probably explain a little about my novel that’s currently touring the publishers as it’s the first in this series of blog posts. The Wanderer Chronicles is my take on the dystopian end…

It’s Been An Okay Week

A bit of a short one this week. I’ve decided to just give you a bit of a status update on me and my projects. It’s been a bit of an up and down week for me in regards to actually producing work. I won’t go into details about what my current job is, but…

Networking… It’s Who You Know

If you see this as a good thing or a bad thing, at the end of the day it isn’t what you know, it’s almost always who you know that can make the biggest difference within your life. Especially from a creative standpoint. For the longest time I’ve struggled with the whole concept of ‘approaching…

My Hopeful Upload Schedule

If I’m going to make a real go of this, then I’m going to have to knuckle down and start putting out some content. I have the ideas ready for the future posts I just need to actually translate them down onto the page. My plan moving forward is to release a new post every…

Hello, Welcome to my Blog!

I’ve been debating whether or not to create a blog for quite some time now. Since the final year of my University course in fact. Four years… time really has flown by! I’ve ventured slightly into the realms of vlogging before, choosing to use it as an outlet to archive my fitness journey. It didn’t…
