2017 – The Year Of The Offensive

2017 will be the Year of the Offensive. 2016 might have been the year for enduring every challenge I threw my way.  It might have been the year where I spent most of it feeling like I was drowning under challenges for every aspect of my life.   It might have been one of the most [...]

The Mountain

As I reach the end of the year, I find myself in the envious position that nearly everything I set out to do this year has been done.  I’m naturally feeling very pleased with myself, especially given how ambitious those targets were.  I now get to spend December relaxing (i.e. getting bored) working out my [...]

The Year Of Staying Hungry

In many ways this feels like an end of the year update, and in some ways it is.  Let me explain. As regular visitors know, rather than make new year’s resolutions, I give each year a theme.  The first year I did this was after being laid up with Leggeddon and so wanted a Year [...]

2015 – The Year Of Hard Work

2015 was my Year of Hard Work. I had quite a simple philosophy, it would be the year I knuckle down and work my arse off. I’d follow up any opportunity and keep my irons in every available fire, so to speak. Having spent the previous year perfecting my organisation I was confident that I [...]

Year of Hard Work – October Report

So here we are, into the last couple of months of the year and approaching the end of my year of hard work.  I certainly don’t think I underestimated how hard this year would be, but I could never have guessed what a rollercoaster it would be.  And it’s not even over yet. […]

The Year Of Hard Work – September Report

No matter how well you plan or hard you work, there will be times when it all goes a bit wrong.  August was one of those months for me.  Pressure got to me and my work suffered because of it. What causes it doesn’t really matter.  It could be a bad review or a rejection.  [...]

It Lives – The Long Awaited Blog Update

On my ToDo list are about 15 different blog posts to make.  So many that's it's not even funny. So why the radio silence for the last month? It's mostly due to the rewrites.  After falling behind in August and feeling slightly overwhelmed, I knuckled down in September and started trying to get things back [...]

The Year Of Hard Work – July Report

Things have been pretty quiet on the blog in the last month but that’s not because I’ve not been working hard, but because I’ve been focusing on the rewrite. Whereas previous months have a wide number of projects on the go, I’ve cleared my slate to just focus on Black As Knight. Looking back at [...]

Productive Writing Article in BSFA Magazine

With over 350,000 words written so far this year, I'm having quite a productive year.   And as can be seen from some of the success I've enjoyed so far, productive writing doesn't mean bad writing.  I recently did an article for the British Science Fiction Association on productive writing and how to implement it. [...]
