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.

Good afternoon folks. A quick little update this afternoon. I wrote 1245 words today. I started off doing some Mando Methods but on the third I got carried away and wrote somewhere in the region of 700 words.
That’s about it for the day, folks. I’ll leave off here with a link to my Amazon page. It’s got all five of the anthologies I’ve been published in there and I’d be grateful for anyone checking them out.
My plans for the next year or so are changing but I’m still getting words down and thinking about what I want to get done.
Good evening, folks! Let’s get straight into it shall we? This month I’ve written 4824 words. I need to step up to try and get to my 500 words a day average but I’ve lost a little writing time each day so I need to compensate and find time to make that up.
The story I’m working on started out as a short story that was about something totally different to where it’s gone, but there are times we have to flow with the story. It makes me think of some TV episodes. The Simpsons especially. They’d start off with an episode where Bart gets obsessed with a yoyo and events lead to Mrs Krabappel confiscates it and gives Bart detention (by the way, I had a school assembly where people came in with Yoyo’s to impress and take our cash when I was at school in the 80’s). This leads to Bart sneaking into Mrs Krabappel’s desk to retrieve the yoyo and he finds a dating column that his teacher had posted. Futurama did this a lot as well. But it’s what I’ve ended up doing with this story in a way. The only difference is I started off with the intention to tell one story but didn’t even get into the meat of that one before I went off in a totally different direction. It’s a direction I’m really happy with and can see things slowly coming together.
It also started off as a short story and is now over 16k words. I’m not sure where it’s going to top out at but as usual, my gut is saying it’ll be about 30k.
Again, tomorrow I’m going to try and write a thousand words. I’m tempted to start working on another story as when I’m jumping to and throw between pieces I seem to get more done, but we’ll see.
My self pimping for today is for the Under The Weather anthology from Burdizzo Books and Back Road Books. This is one of my favourite stories I’ve written. I just let myself go and had a lot of fun with it. The story, The Snow, is about a man who goes to collect his wife from work in a shopping centre as a vicious snow storm hits. When they go to leave things begin to go very wrong.
There are a lot of other amazing stories in this collection to, including one that still freaks me out to this day (try to guess which!), and I’d be super grateful for anyone checking it out. Here’s the link. It’s also the first of my work that’s been made into audio which thrilled me big time.
