Almost halfway there

It's a hot and sunny day in Manchester. It's just over a year since I first visited, with the feeling that I was about to spend a lot of my time here. My current lease ends in three weeks' time, and I'll be in Warwickshire for the summer, but I'll be back to finish up... Continue Reading →

Writing books is hard shock

So, November 1st I embarked on NaNoWriMo 2015, which is a challenge to write a novel - beginning, middle and end - of at least 50,000 words between November 1-30. It's only the 25th, but I'm calling it a day at roughly 22,000 words. And yet, I would say that this month has been a semi-success.

Wrapping up 2013

Hello again. Sorry the blog went quiet without warning. You know how it is, once you stop doing something, it becomes harder to start it up again. Plus, an awful lot of life seemed to be happening for a while there, so I didn't really feel like doing much of anything. Still, cusp of a... Continue Reading →

Blogging will be a thing again, and some reviews

Blogging has again become sporadic and erratic. Fear not¬†Putting on a Show¬†will return, as will #fridayflash, but travelling and other factors have caused some skip weeks. You're probably owed an explanation of what else I've been up to creatively apart from Nando's, but sadly the answer to that is not much. Rehearsing a musical somewhere... Continue Reading →

New ventures

Tl;dr - making creative things in Leicester. Get involved. Over three years of living in Leicester, I met a load of talented people, who just give away their time either through generosity or because they don't quite realise how special they are. Also, I made friends with these people. The other thing that happened is... Continue Reading →

Posterity

I'm averaging a post a post a month since this blog started in March 2012. That's regular, right? Some updates: Come June I will be free of uni work, come July I will have graduated, and the adult world beckons. Erp. Submitted various things I had hanging around to various places, will be on the... Continue Reading →

Train rolling into the station

Exciting times over here. The plays I'm directing are opening in exactly one week from now, and closing two days afterwards. The technical rehearsal is in three days, and there are all sorts of meetings and rehearsals and props and costume is getting sorted out... My actors are working super hard, the crew seem prepared...

Summer

Summer has been spent mainly reading sci-fi for my dissertation. Not much writing has got done. Even my grammar is slipping, as the previous sentence shows. However, I've got a few updates and notes for you: I have finally started the play I've been threatening since the inception of this blog, which will most likely... Continue Reading →

Blogging

I've neglected this blog fiercely, I know. Keeping a personal record has never been a strength. I am improving the site as whole, though, to give a better impression of my work. Some poems are already up there, and over this week I'm going to put up all my short plays and some older work... Continue Reading →
