A lack thereof

Jun 21, 2015 - Life, Writing - 0 Comments - Standard

I hate being as busy as I am. There’s too many things I’m trying to achieve and the one thing I don’t give two shits about, work, is crushing my ability to do any of it. I have not don’t much writing lately as a result. What I have written is shit. Writing is supposed […]

Cake

Apr 05, 2015 - Life, Writing - 0 Comments - Standard

I am eating cake for dinner. Birthday cake. My birthday was a week or so ago, but I reluctantly held the celebration last night. It was fun. Cake is delicious. It provided an unusual opportunity to flog off copies of my books. It’s a strange experience to earn at your own birthday party. Possibly socially […]

Some good friends of mine have just opened up their own online business, Simpsons Sensory & Emotional Relief, selling a number of products that provide help and relief for children with various autism spectrum disorders. There’s some fantastic products and ideas that have been developing lots of great feedback since they’ve started. If you’re reading […]

Tough

Feb 25, 2015 - Life, Viridian, Writing - 0 Comments - Standard

Did I mention work was tough lately. It’s taken all the energy out of me, which means less writing and less updates. Mentally exhausting. Certainly no fun. I wrote a nice little passage for Viridian just then, but I’m still along way behind where I’d like to be. I was talking about writer’s block and […]

Stress

Jan 28, 2015 - Feathers Fall, Life, Writing - 4 Comments - Standard

Work. Real work. The stuff that actually pays. Not something I talk a lot about. But lets talk it for a second. Work is stressful. Hard? Perhaps not. Challenging? People are challenging. My work demands that I sit politely while people try their best to tear my ideas apart. And I’m ok with that. For […]

Steampunk

So I just dropped $350 on a steampunkish styled costume. Well, arguably it’s straight Victorian era. But hey. Close enough. Also, I just dropped $350 on a costume. Ouch :S

Every year, Lifeline do a bookfest where they offload all their donated books for cheap in a massive exhibition hall. This year, I got quite the haul.

Headcolds

Feb 04, 2014 - Life - 0 Comments - Standard

It is so hard to get anything done with a headcold. Can’t work, can’t write, can’t concentrate. Blegh. It’ll be a few days before I probably pick up FF and write again.

Understanding German

Jan 17, 2014 - Life - 0 Comments - Standard

I downloaded an app for my tablet, Duolingo, which is a free language learning tool and game. It’s neat. I picked to learn German because I thought I knew a little bit of German and that would speed things along. Turns out I understand German about as well as I understand women. It’s fun 😀

Comics

Jan 01, 2014 - Life - 0 Comments - Standard

Speaking of drawing. I purchased myself a Galaxy Note 8 tablet recently as a christmas present to myself. One of the things I’ve started using it for is reading comics. Never been a huge comic fan in the past, but with my new found passion for learning to draw cartoons/manga, the artwork has become interesting. […]
