Is This Funny Or Is It Alcoholism?

Haha! Tyrion Lannister said something witty and we all laughed… but, uh, it’s not really funny. Is it? It’s alcoholism. And that’s not funny. I… I don’t know if I should be laughing or… I feel bad now. I mean. Fair play to good ol’ Tyrion, he’s been through some shit. He’s seen some shit. … Read moreIs This Funny Or Is It Alcoholism?

All the Best Ideas Come Out of the Toilet

So I was thinking about something the other day. I used to do a lot of story planning on the toilet. Plotting. Character building. World building. So much of it used to come to me as I was sitting on the porcelain throne. Some readers have already clicked away by now. Some writers are busy … Read moreAll the Best Ideas Come Out of the Toilet

Is The Walking Dead Sexist?

OK. It’s time for a rant about a popular TV show. No, not Game of Thrones, the other one I rant about.

Writerly Problems: One WIP is Never Enough

Now I like to think I work fairly quickly. I’ve written roughly 2 and a half books this year, 2 of which are on their way soon, and 1 which may never see the light of day if I can’t figure out what to do with it. I’m not a patch on the likes of … Read moreWriterly Problems: One WIP is Never Enough

Waging in on Star Wars – Rey’s Parentage

Having now seen Star Wars The Force Awakens twice, I feel comfortable enough to wage into the internet discussion. This will not be a review. I loved the film and felt it was a true Star Wars film, and I don’t feel the need to review it. Instead I’m going to post a few of … Read moreWaging in on Star Wars – Rey’s Parentage

Modern Epic Fantasy – The (Super) Hero’s Journey

I was playing Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) a while back and our Games Master (GM) looked up from his book and sighed at us. He pointed out that playing D&D basically puts the players in the shoes of super heroes in a fantasy setting. We were monstrous and taking down monsters and he (the GM) … Read moreModern Epic Fantasy – The (Super) Hero’s Journey
