Back Online

Back Online

Cornwall turned out to have very little internet. It also lasted a day longer than I expected, due to a detour to visit family friends that my parents managed to forget to tell me about. I’m finally home, though, after a very long stationary tailback on the M25 that left us all sweltering (our car doesn’t have working air-con anymore), and reacquainting myself with the world of functioning WiFi. Pictures will follow, including the disappointing results of spending a really…

A Host Of Updates (and cat pictures)

A Host Of Updates (and cat pictures)

While I have the energy to be upright and write this post (which I’ve saved up by spending all day in bed, not intentionally), I figured I’d give you a few important updates. First, I shifted my blog to its new host at the weekend, which means it might break. Both my hosts (old and new) seem convinced they’re hosting the site, and I guess we won’t know for sure which one’s supporting it until the old hosting runs out,…

NEW NOVEL!

NEW NOVEL!

Okay, so this is exciting for me. I’m writing something new. Like, totally new. And I did that a month or so ago but that was nothing like as cool as that, and also fizzled out after just three chapters because I didn’t get around to writing it. But this is going to be different. (And I will go back to that one when I have finished. I promise.) What’s this one about? Well. Am I allowed to give you pictorial clues? I’ll…

I Am Good At Procrastinating

I Am Good At Procrastinating

I really am. It’s evident just by looking at my ‘sent emails’ folder – you can tell when I was supposed to be doing something else, as they increase in frequency. Tumblr knows me very well, and it wasn’t until I was supposed to be revising for mock exams that I watched “A Very Potter Musical” after two years of resisting my friends’ efforts to persuade me. In fact, if you look at my conversation with our dear Charley from…

To Those At Rest

To Those At Rest

Warning – this will be a remarkably morbid post considering that it’s New Year’s Eve. I also hope that none of the families of the graves I photographed will mind. I left my house with the intention to walk until I got lost and/or inspired, and then to get unlost but hopefully not uninspired. I managed the lost part quite quickly, and even worked out a basic synopsis in my head (which, as you might know, is what I was…

Coincidentally Confusing

Coincidentally Confusing

As you may know if you follow me on Twitter, I’ve been right up to my ears in editing recently – to the point where I edited a further 4.5k on Christmas Day, something I never thought I would do. However, I’m actually working on a complete rewrite, and right near the end I had a brand-new scene in which I invented an incredibly awesome creature. The book is based around Celtic stuff, and the sidhe (fairies, to the uninitiated),…

Sailing ‘Bye’ (with pictures of the Doctor)

Sailing ‘Bye’ (with pictures of the Doctor)

Right now, I’m on a boat somewhere on the Norfolk Broads. I’m with an organisation called Scripture Union. By now, I’m probably longing for a proper toilet, some firm ground and food that I don’t have to worry about. It’s always an adventure for me, on holiday – will I find some food I can actually eat? I’ll also probably be learning a lot about sailing, and what you can’t do on a boat (ballet). And I’ll have had my…

Feather Pen Friday: I just finished a novel

Feather Pen Friday: I just finished a novel

Well, the title says it all really, but I did just finish a novel. It still doesn’t have a title (might do a John Green and just not give it a title ’til it’s due to come out) but it’s finished. I started writing it 17th June, so I finished it in just under a month. It’s around 81,000 words, and it’s a first draft – it needs a lot of work. I was taking part in Camp NaNoWriMo, a…
