And So It Begins…

So, as I stated in my last post I’ve been attending a course studying a MA in Creative Writing since September. I ended up deciding to follow this route as I decided that I wanted to further myself as a writer and learn new things that I could bring to the table both as an…

Who, What, Where, When and Why?

I think when it comes down to it, if you really want something to work out in your life, then you have to put in the legwork and effort into achieving that dream. Some people are luckier than others; having people already in their lives who can help them to reach their end goal, but…

Progress Update: November 6th

Things have been going rather well for me over the past week, making decent progress on a variety of things. Unfortunately, my writing hasn’t been one of them. I’ve been struggling with a serious case of writers block. Now I know it’s not a real thing; a fear of failure is more accurate, but lately…

Good Times Are Coming

Hello, just giving another quick update about how everything is moving along with my writing and a couple of other aspects that have fallen nicely into place. Firstly, tackling the subject of my writing it has been a rather mediocre week to be honest. I’ve made progress but nothing that you could brag about. Progress…

Progress Update 23rd October

This week I’ve managed to finish off the next chapter of Blackwell and make a small start  towards the next. I was hoping that this week was going to be as productive as the last, but unfortunately things didn’t quite go as planned. My mind has been all over the place lately, but I’m trying…

A Productive Week

Just an update on how my week has gone so far. I’ve been putting a lot of work into Blackwell and have managed to crank out 6000 words, which works out about 1000 words a day. I’m pleased with that especially as I have to squeeze in my writing time whenever I’m not at work….

Publishers, Where and How I Went wrong. 

I stated in my ‘I Want To Be A Writer‘ vlog that I have had a bit of a painful time in regards to approaching Publishers and Production companies. There are various reasons for this and I’m going to flesh out a few of them for you below. I’m hoping that this might steer some…

Progress, Projects and Another Trip Away. 

So I’ve had a bit of a hard week regarding finding the motivation to put pen to page or finger to laptop keyboard. I don’t think I could narrow it down to one thing in particular as it’s more of an umbrella of issues that have been hanging over me. That may sound worse than…

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…
