On this week’s Arm Cast: Dead Sexy Podcast, host Armand Rosamilia talks with Jonathan Cosgrove, an Irish writer of dark fiction. As a child, he convinced his mother’s best friend that he’d been born in America, despite the fact she’d visited him in the Irish hospital where he was born. Since then he’s been trying to…
Good morning! It sounds like the birds are singing happily outside today, I’ve ventured out yet but have work later on.
There’s not much for me to report writing wise. Few words have been written, but a short story has been submitted, had notes back and then sent back to the publisher. This is for an anthology I was invited to submit to.
I can’t remember if I mentioned but I did have a rejection a few weeks ago. It was disappointing but the story is one I love and takes place in my Penal Earth universe so I can always put it in a collection of stories from that setting.
Living in this locked down world is both strange and interesting. I changed jobs at the start of April (was in the process of before the lockdown was even spoken of) and am now working in a supermarket. So I’ve been going to work as normal, to a degree. But it’s both interesting and frustrating seeing how some people adhere to guild lines on social distancing and how others blatantly disregard those rules. We haven’t got a full lockdown here in the Uk, and I think more people should appreciate that.
That’s all for this morning. I had more I wanted to write but my brain’s decided to misfile they rest of it!
Stay safe everyone, if we keep our heads we can start getting back to a life without restrictions sooner. I’m not going to say back to normal because I’m honestly not sure that’ll happen. Not for some time anyhow.
Good Morning, folks! This will be a slightly different post to what I normally put up simply because it’s not going to have much about writing in it.
We’re in a state of uncertainty at the moment with the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak. Now, I’ve not been directly affected by it. Aside from some silly memes on social media and a few conversations I’ve not been affected by it. I have loved ones who fall into the high risk category and this concerns me. What happens if we have to go on a lockdown also worries me. There are few people I know who don’t live pay packet to pay packet. What happens to our finances if that happens?
I look at what’s going to happen to the emergency services, which in the UK is already a part of government that is understaffed and overworked. They’ll be pushed even harder and for much longer.
What happens to getting food to people? Will a lockdown allow people to leave to shop? Will the shops have to have police or even military presence to make sure things stay under control. Are they contingencies to ration? (like seriously people, the first sign of an emergency situation and we start hoarding? we did a shop the other day and just did a normal shop and I know other people are doing the same. We don’t need to panic buy, just be sensible) Sorry, I’ll try not to rant any more this post.
It is something that I feel like we as individuals needs to start thinking about. Both rationing of things like food and of money. I don’t need to go out and spend anything today. All I’ll be doing is using a little fuel from my car and thats about it. That said, it could all be over in a few weeks. We might not have to go on lockdown, but I’d like to be hearing from governments what’s going to happen if we have to, and I’d like to hear more about how they’re going to make sure we as a society don’t fall apart in the meantime.
Lots of food for thought at the moment, on the plus side I am getting a few words down and this story I’ve been working on this year is nearing completion of the first draft.
I’ll end this post with yes, it says good morning but I posted in the afternoon. And that I’m not an expert with anything I’ve said today. These were just some thoughts that I’ve been having the last few days.
First-time novelists Mary Hart, Michelle Renee Lane, Sheri Sebastian-Gabriel, Tony Tremblay, and J. Edwin Buja share the joys and terrors of writing, publishing, and promoting their first novels. Then Brian, Mary, Matt and Kelli discuss the origins of their first books, as well. Check out this episode of The Horror Show! The post WRITING…

Good evening, folks! I’m just pulling in with a quick little post. I’m nearing the end of the story I’ve been working on this year. It’s about 26k at the moment and I think I’ve got a couple more thousand words to go but as always, I don’t know. I’m hoping the ending is going to be pretty epic, I know roughly what I want to write but again, as always, I don’t know. The story could go off in its own direction once I get stuck in.
I’m thinking about the next project. I’ve got two older ones that I really want to whip into shape this year. At the moment I don’t have much time to write, but hopefully that’s going to change at some point. I really hope I’ve got a good idea how how to approach these two pieces now. Something I tend to be lazy about doing is reading what I’ve already written and making notes and so on. I’m going to do this when I get stuck into the two projects, and hopefully do it right.
There was another submission call I sat for a smaller published that I’d love to work for but I think I might be pushing my luck to get a story for the anthology done in time. I need to look up the deadline for submissions on that one.
Okay, so this wasn’t as quick a post as I was expecting (it his happens more than I’d like to admit!). Life is busy and I’ve got a lot going on, but I’m still knocking out a few words and have plenty on my mind when it comes to writing.
