I’m not leaving this spot until Michelangelo gets here.
Well. That wasn’t quite what I was expecting. Life just threw me a dung-encrusted curve ball. If I had gonads, I’d be that guy rolling round on the ground, screaming in unadulterated misery. What happened has got me all doubled over and I’m not sure I’ll ever be upright again. Methinks this kind of life-changer puts…Read More
Code: Kinda-Bluish. When your creativity ain’t so visual.
Ouch. My eyeballs hurt. And so does my brain. I think one or two of the synapses have extinguished themselves in protest at the amount of peering at computer screens I’ve done over the past few weeks while editing. Or, as I like to call it, trying-to-make-something-I-wrote-less-shit. But me and my first world problem will…Read More
My Main Character’s Heart just pounded, thumped, raced, leaped and fluttered her to Death.

I am going full adult. Hiring professionals. Getting invoiced. Peeps, I’ve been given a DEADLINE. I’ve adulted myself right in the kahunas.Read More
The Importance of training your Opinion-Oodle.
Opinions. There must be one hell of a sale on these little gems because every soggy blighter has one. There are those who like to wield their opinion like a rusty broadsword dipped in rabies-juice and rolled in rainbow sprinkles of bubonic plague. They jab their colourful little swords, digging in deep, laughing at their keyboards, enjoying being…Read More
Judging a Book – Totally Got This Covered
So, did something a little bit wild, a little bit cray-cray last night. Minds out of the gutter people, minds OUT of the gutter. Thankfully the days of that kind of behaviour are ancient history, lost in the shadows of the nineties. Blessedly before the time of camera phones and social media.Read More
