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…

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…
