I Will Sell You My Soul

I Will Sell You My Soul

For those who happened not to notice my sneaky self-promotion at the bottom of my last post, and who don’t follow me on any other social media network, I have an announcement to make. Even though everyone else knows already, so it’s not even news. My second publication is coming this month, and it’s a poetry collection. This is what it looks like: Isn’t it gorgeous? Okay, I can’t say that, because I designed it and I’m supposed to love…

December (Retrospect and Reminiscing #12)

December (Retrospect and Reminiscing #12)

December. This is, the last one! And I’m writing it before December has technically finished, but hey, how much am I likely to do tomorrow? Very little, is the answer. I’m currently fighting my third draft of The Quiet Ones instead of doing the mountain of homework that needs to be done this week, so tomorrow’s going to be fairly busy. I’m not sure if it’s my facial expression or what, but for some reason I really remind myself of…

August (Retrospect and Reminiscing #8)

August (Retrospect and Reminiscing #8)

August was a supremely atypical month for me, really. It involved lots of reading, exam results, very little writing, lots of TV, lots of travel, some kissing, far too much plotting, and Charley. Let’s go through those things in approximately that order. This wonderful picture of Charley and me is my favourite thing because I don’t look too much shorter than her – primarily because I’m standing on the curb and she’s not. I’d recently acquired that waistcoat and had…

January (Retrospect And Reminiscing #1)

January (Retrospect And Reminiscing #1)

I decided to start my year-review (“Retrospect And Reminiscing”, if you hadn’t guessed that already) a day earlier than originally intended because I realised that I’m due to write a post for the TCWT chain on the 24th and therefore didn’t otherwise have twelve days in which to write about the year. January won’t retrospectively alter itself before tomorrow, though, so I think we’re safe. It’s going to be impossible to find a photo of me from every month of…

Why I Am A Proper Author…

Why I Am A Proper Author…

… and how I forgot to tell you until almost a week later. Seriously. Aside from a flippant note at the bottom of my TCWT post, I was so wrapped up dealing with the blog drama that went down last week that it completely slipped my mind to tell you that St Mallory’s Forever! has been released. I know. Debut author. Should be fairly mental about it, shouldn’t I? Well, I had other things on my mind come Thursday, and it’s…

A Burst Of Light (TCWT)

A Burst Of Light (TCWT)

Had you read that one book you might also have known How the world can be changed in just one burst of light And what was right seems wrong, and what was wrong seems right… Okay, I’m paraphrasing Les Mis. Always a good start to a post, right? (Do not feel free to disagree.) Given that I’m hosting this months Teens Can Write Too! blog chain, it’s just as well I checked last night to see whether my post date…

I Would Say I’m Weird But I’m Not

I Would Say I’m Weird But I’m Not

I often complain to those who know me well that my sister is very scathing and dismissive of a lot of what I do on the internet and frequently makes comments about my blog right when I’m not really in the right mood to answer her politely or even coherently, and so I’m taking quite a risk writing this as there’s about an 80% chance she’ll read it. However, some of what she says does have substance to it. Often she’s…

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…

Feather Pen Friday: Dun?

Feather Pen Friday: Dun?

Okay, so I think I’ve been reading the NaNoisms forum too much because I originally intended to call this post ‘Done?’. However I like the new version and have left it be. Well, a couple of days ago I finished the third book in my trilogy. It’s called Returning (the book, not the trilogy), although I’m probably going to change that name, and it’s finished. Hooray. Unfortunately, I began it while the second one was still a first draft –…

Why I Am A Proper Author (or will be)

Why I Am A Proper Author (or will be)

Many of you know that I guest-post over on ‘Mark Williams International’. In fact all of you should know, because I put a link up here every time I post, blah blah blah, if you don’t go read them you’re not loyal etcetera. Mark’s a bestselling e-book author, so that was quite exciting for me. But that’s not even the beginning of it, because recently I had an email that almost caused me to jump up and down in excitement….
