Status Update 13th October 2021

Good evening folks, how are we all doing tonight?

I’ve got a lot I want to get through tonight, so let’s get cracking!

The anthology K is for Kidnap came out featuring my story ‘Mother is God’ and is available in ebook and paperback. Please hit the link and check it out!

Love this cover!

The fantastic Leah Solmaz is working on an adaptation of one of my short stories! (squeeeeee!!!!!) Please go and check out Leah’s Instagram page, where you can see the intro!!! I’m super excited about this. Not only because something I’ve written is being adapted into a short animated movie, but also because its working with Leah who is a fantastic human being and damn talented as well. If you haven’t watched Theosight please check it out, I’ll add it to this post.

I have started on reading through and making notes based on the editors read of ‘Is that a zombie?’ I started then got hit with a head cold that knocked me off my feet. I focused my energy on work and matters away from writing. I’m going to get back on track with it by the weekend.

I’ve had a beta reader look at some of my longer pieces and got some excellent feedback, including that one wasn’t as polished as the other, so I need to go back and put my editing head back on to look it over.

Something I’m going to do in the next day or so is sit down and get my bearings on the different projects again. I’ve got a few which are at different stages and I’m just going to write them all down and figure where they all are.

On top of all of that we’ve got NaNoWriMo just around the corner…..

I am struggling to get back in the flow, much more then I thought I would. But it’s there, and I know NaNo will give me a massive boost and help get the words wrangled.

Good Morning 3rd of November 2020

Good morning, folks! I hope we’re all well today? I am not even close to being awake yet, but I’ve got an hour before I host an online NaNo write-in, so plenty of time for tea and something to eat, which should have me ready and firing for two hours of writing.

I’m also planning on editing today as well as maybe a little work on Penal Earth. Something I’ve tried at times is to get my head around is treating writing like a job. I think I’m beginning to understand it more now and with doing less hours I’ve got to learn to maximise my time and get the work down. I’m thinking about setting myself hours to write, ie: five hours a week, and depending on my day job hours I’ll increase or decrease it. When I say five hours I don’t mean sitting on my bed writing while watching a movie or something, I mean at my desk and working without anything to drag my attention away, with the exception of music. Today is a good example, I’ve got something on at about 1pm so I’ll be wrapping up for the day about then. Then a couple of hours chilling out before Stefan from Stefan’s Daily Gaming comes over for, you guessed it, gaming. Due to the lockdown we’re getting in England from Thursday we had to move this forward a couple of days and thankfully we can game and maintain social distancing.

Last week I was interviewed by the fantastic Leah Solmaz over at at site, and I’ve recently watched the pilot for her series Theosight. I’ve put the pilot below because not only is Leah very cool but this was very good. It’s intriguing, funny, and has heart to it. The characters were portrayed greatly and it was nice seeing a protagonist acting like I think most of us would if this happened to us, and I’m a sucker for this type of humour as well. There’s not been much that has made me laugh aloud like this did. So please check it out, they’re trying to get attention on it for financing a series and all the views on YouTube will help, if you dig it then share it on social media. It all helps and if the rest of the rest of the people involved are as nice, creative, and passionate as Leah Solmaz then it’s going to be something very special.

Right folks, it’s time for me to be getting some breakfast. I hope everyone has a good day!
