5 Things I Dislike In Writing

Well, here we are, another week, another list. Now, I’ve been pretty positive in my ramblings here up until now. But recently some stuff I’ve come across has made me enter grumpy old man mode, a mode I am all too well-versed in, being grumpy, old and a man. I have been a member of […]

Rejected Story Ideas

When you claim to be a writer, amongst the many questions you get – normally right after “Do you write all day long?!” – is “Where do you get your ideas from?” I’ve discussed this before, but sometimes a person will then follow this up with, “Do you have any ideas that didn’t work?” Curse […]

Review: Six of the Best

This is going to sound terrible. If you read this, it seems like everything I read is wonderful or I only know how to write sycophantic reviews. Well, that’s not the case… Honestly. You see, I had the displeasure some years ago of attending a local wrestling ‘super-show’ and I wrote how bad it was […]

Introducing Lilliana Rose

I thought I’d talk about an author whose work I like, but is also some-one I know personally, and some-one who I think everyone else should get to know, at least through her work. I have been lucky enough to know Lilliana Rose for a few years as a fellow South Australian writer. I first […]

Odds and Sods and Links… oh my!

It’s been a little while since my last post. Sorry, for the three of you that look forward to this. I’ve been busy-ish writing. 20k+ words in a week and a half and no signs yet of stopping. One of the joys of being a “writer” – writer’s diarrhoea. It certainly makes up for three more […]

Hey, look! More links!

A bunch more links to various things, and some comments thereon. Let’s start with the editor of two (count ’em, 2!) anthologies I appear in, and a third coming out some time this year. Kevin G. Bufton has been doing a blog tour to promote his new book Cake (which I will buy when i have some […]

Links! Links! We got links!

I know it’s not too long since the last one (and, please, I am still looking for some feedback on that piece of writing, so take 5 minutes and let me know if I set the tone of the time okay), but a pile of links has come my way. First, the SA Writers’ Centre […]

Write What You Know?

Like many aspiring authors, when I was young and learning I was told to only “write what you know.” The reasoning was, I guess, don’t step outside your comfort zone because your audience will know if you make it up. And like many young authors, this I did, to the point where a lot of early […]

Novel #30

Back to the novels! As you may or not be aware, I am currently studying professional writing at TAFE (sort of Australia’s version of vocational college). When I finish the course, I’ll write about it, but let’s just say it’s going to add another piece of paper to my resume. Anywho, I have one subject […]
