I Wanna Tell You A Story

I was thinking about starting a new story serial for here. There, I've said it, so I guess I have to do it now. My finger did, for a moment, hover over the delete key for that sentence above, but I resisted. It appears the Borg were wrong, though I won't...

Why do you write?

What makes you want to write? This morning, the Ripl app, which I use for little videos for Instagram and Twitter, offered a Monday Motivation prompt, something it does each week. When I loaded it, however, and went to edit the Mark Twain quote it gave as a default, I...

Rebirth

I was wondering how to start this post today. I've been told that I have a unique take on chapter openings. They have a habit of seeming to wonder away on a tangent, taking the scenic route before slipping back down a side alley and tempting you to follow. A friend of...

#NaNoWriMo

November is a month that I've feared for a long time. So many of my amazing writer friends sign up to this strange thing called Nanowrimo and lose themselves for a month. I thought about doing it myself, often. Then I realised how silly I was being and...

Tapping IT

When I first moved into horror, both in my reading and my writing, there was one author I aspired to. I loved (love) Clive Barker, Dean Koontz and many more, but the writer I read the most, and wished to be, was Stephen King. I read all his books,...

The Superheroes of Brazil

I spoke, in my last post, about the writing workshop I'd given at a local school (Ormiston South Parade Academy) and how much I enjoyed it. Well, today, I had the chance to visit the school again and talk to first year pupils in Miss Huddleston's Brazil...

Imaginings of Italy

Writing is a wonderful thing. Reading is up there along with it too. Since I've been able to hold a pen, I've written.  Since I've been able to figure out that those letters thrown across the page were actually words and meant something, I've read. I truly believe...

The robots are rebelling! Run for the...! Oh wait. No, it's fine. I think. OK. Try again. The robots are uprising, but not in reality - as far as I know. But, over on Wattpad's Tap app platform, there's a new story series! If you swipe for the story...

And the Meek Shall Swim… 

I'm writing "And the Meek Shall Swim" on Wattpad. It's the sequel to my Little Mermaid retelling. I was going to leave the story where it ended but the response has been so amazing, I had to carry it on. Thanks to comments such as "savage and beautiful," I...
