Once upon a time, I dreamt of being a mad scientist when I grew up. After much consideration, I realised that science is quite hard. So I became a mad writer instead, which is much easier. True story.

WordPress Blog · 2:59pm Oct 22nd, 2014

So for anyone who follows me but has not seen the latest chapter or Wild Card: Two of a Kind, here's the general message of my author's note:

I have a WordPress Blog now. Huzzah and all that good celebratory stuff. Essentially it is a collection of my short stories and flash fictions that I am updating every Monday and Friday in an attempt to get better known as a writer. I hope you check it out and enjoy my works.

Song Lyrics Fiasco · 8:42pm Nov 5th, 2013

Apparently there's some butthurt rangers going round reporting fics that have song lyrics in them, which is against the rules or something. So yeah, I'm gonna be doing some editing on the earlier chapters to cut out lyrics and avoid getting my ass sued by people with more money than God.

And that last sentence should pretty much sum up my feelings on this whole matter.

Basically, there will be some changes, try not to get enraged over them. Thanks.

My apologies · 2:50pm Aug 10th, 2013

No update for Wild Card this week I'm afraid. Just not feeling it at the moment. I'll be back when I manage to get out of this funk I'm stuck in at the moment. Honestly, I just want to get this story over and done with, but can't find the inspiration to write anything that doesn't look like complete tripe.

Sigh

See you next week probably.

Wild Card Updates · 8:40pm Jul 19th, 2013

No chapter this week I'm afraid. I'm away on a visit to the university that I'll (hopefully) be going to in a couple of months as part of an induction weekend. Whilst this does mean that I don't have access to my computer (writing this on my Ipod at the moment) and, thus, cannot do any writing or uploading, it does mean that I do have access to a load of alcohol and some very cool people. I've already made friends with a bunch of anime geeks and we're going to go get drunk later and talk

Problems · 2:16pm Jul 4th, 2013

I have encountered a small problem whilst trying to write the next chapter of Wild Card. A small problem known as the Greater Demon of Writer's Block. Seriously, I have been staring at a piece of paper for about two days now, desperately trying to think of what I want to happen in the next chapter and so far all I've got is: 'maybe a battle of some kind?'

Hiatus Announcement · 5:32pm Apr 22nd, 2013

After much deliberation I've decided to put Wild Card on hiatus until my end of year exams are over. I really hate to have to do this but if I want to get into university (which I do) then I need to really focus. Hopefully, once the exam period is over, I'll be able to get back into writing smoothly and with plenty of fresh ideas. I apologize profusely for those of you who might be eagerly looking forward to the finale to Wild Card and I'll promise here and now that I will finish this story.

The Great and Powerful Sage Quill (Kaze1121) strikes again, this time with a wonderful picture of Summer Storm. Our badass little unicorn sparkhead is looking so freakin' awesome in this picture. Stubborn, confident and ready to take on the world.

Big round of applause to Sage Quill guys. I really appreciate the work he has done giving these characters an image

Fanart Mk II · 6:59pm Mar 19th, 2013

Hey there, true believers! *Is sued by Stan Lee for copyright infringement* Wow, tough crowd.

Anyways, got some more fanart for you fine fellows and it...is...awesome! This comes to us from the artistic genius of Sage Quill, also known as Kaze1121 over on Devient Art. It's a really cool piece and I think everyone should give him a "Hell yeah!" for his work.

Wild Card Update · 3:41pm Mar 13th, 2013

The pen strikes the paper once, leaving a black mark behind on the once pristine sheet. After that it moves no more, merely hovers above the white canvas like a seabird hovering above a flat ocean, wondering where all the fish are. The author looks down from on high at what he has created so far, the small blemish on the paper marking out a rune that most speakers of English would recognize as an 'A'. After a few moments he looked up at the audience, the vast collective of intelligences that

Guess what I have now...did you guess fanart? If so then you are absolutely correct! (Although I guess the title made it fairly obvious.)
