Todays Update 19/7/12

A little over 700 words of fiction tonight in about 90 minutes, Not too¬†bad I think ūüėÄ I set myself a target to hit by the end of the month a week into the start of this month.¬† To hit that target I need to get write 556 words a day.¬† So that’s my little target to hit by the end of the month.¬† I also want to have Fahrenheit 451¬†by Ray Bradbury read but that one seems to be a little more of a challenge as I write in the evening and read after about nine but where I havent slept much lately I’m finding that come ten o’clock sort of time I’m fighting to keep my eyes open let alone absorb great fiction so that may not happen but I’ll give it a bash.¬† With that in mind I am off to bed as I have a five-hour¬†round journey to Oxford and back¬† on Saturday so night all ūüôā

Today’s Update 17/07/12

Still no fiction written but I had a couple little ideas today that I quickly scribbled down and I’m going to have a play with when I’m feeling better, it’s odd how a little dental issue really knocks me off my game.¬† Are you like that?¬† Anyway, I’m going to try some sort of brain storm exercise and see where it takes me.¬† The other idea, well I think I might have to have a little natter (chat)¬†with Owen about that one.¬† I reckon he may like the idea ūüėČ

I’ve been listening to a lot of the Dead Robots Society recently, yes the PC is still not repaired, and I’ve got to say after not be too sure I am now beginning to really love this podcast.¬† If you get a minute go and check the show out @

One thing that I really need to do is get back reading, that like everything else has fallen by the wayside the last few days.¬† I was just getting into Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury so I’d like to get rolling again, but right now I’m getting a tad tired so I’m off to bed ūüôā

Today’s Update 10/7/12

Due to getting in late after shopping with my brother I only managed to write a third of what I did yesterday but that I did in about fifteen minutes so that’s¬†not to bad I guess.¬† I was going to start¬† a paper copy proof read of a story me and Owen are working during my lunch breaks at work but I do not have a completed hard copy of that story so I’ve decided to do a hard copy edit¬†of what will be my NaNoWriMo¬†project this year.¬† I think it’ll be bending the rules slightly to work on something that has had a few drafts written but I’m using what I have already written as a plan for the project and I’m¬†not thinking of it as another draft because there is a lot of changes that will be taking place.¬† This will be my second year doing NaNo and I want to be much better prepared this time around so I’m going to be getting into prepping for it properly early September, and then go though all my notes in late October.¬† Aside from that there’s not much more to say.¬† I’m slowly getting into Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and I’ll have my opinion of Prometheus put up soon but that’s it for now ūüôā

Today’s Update

1058 words written in an hour tonight ūüôā I’ve started the¬†re-write of a story I started a few months ago which I want to re-write and approach from a slightly different angle.¬† I know where I want this one to go but as its me I have not done an outline¬†or anything¬†and will let the plot and characters develop¬†as I write and hopefully I’ll get to the ending that is in my head.¬† I’m not sure what length I’m aiming for with this one at the moment but I think it will be at least 10,000 words but we’ll see.

I am also going to do a hard copy proof read of one of mine and Owen’s projects in the next couple of days¬†before I start on the next draft.¬† There are a lot of little details¬†that need to be added and continuity issues to be smoothed out.¬† For the rest of the night though I am going to dive into Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451.

A Little Update

I’m having a bit of a chill out today as I was at Wireless Festival yesterday and I am more than¬†a little shattered, although it was well worth it ūüôā So I doubt there will be much writing done today but I thought I’d just pop up a little update.

I’ve just started reading Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury which I’m rather looking forward to getting stuck into.¬† I really need to be getting some of the classic Science Fiction read, although saying that I’m sure the late Mr.Bradbury never considered himself a genre writer, but I do need to start reading more of the¬†classics.¬† I’ve got a couple of Phillip K. Dick’s novels which I’m looking forward¬†to reading as well as a Arthur C.Clarke novel so plenty to read.

This week I am determined to get cracking with some fiction again.  As I said in a previous post I am in between projects at the moment but I think I may do what I did with NaNoWriMo and just start writing something.  I did a have good idea how to tweak a character which I hope will give him more depth.

Something that I need to do is re-watch theLord Of The Ringsmovies as Owen does reference them a fair bit in what he writes and it’s been a while since I saw those movies.
