Howdy folks!

Today marks a pretty cool occasion!

Firstly though, I want to talk about Scotchtavia and The Morning After. To this day, they are still the most successful stories I have ever written. I get notifications regularly about people favouriting them. Ten years later.

Seeking Pre-Readers! · 6:28pm June 29th

Howdy folks!

I think the title is fairly self-explanatory.

In short, the way I write has fairly consistently followed the same formula for as long as I've been doing it:

  1. Write story.
  2. Check story for mistakes.
  3. Post story in unpublished view.
  4. Re-check for mistakes.
  5. Publish.
  6. Spot more mistakes.
  7. Time passes.
  8. Re-read story after said time passes.
  9. Spot even more mistakes.

Phew!

Time to let my keyboard cool down for a bit. Having never entered one of the Thousand Word Contests before, I decided 'ah heck, might as well enter in all categories', which as of this morning is what I have done! Huzzah! Also ow, my hands!

A Glimpse Between Communities · 4:53pm May 18th

May the Eighteenth be with you... or something, I'dunno.

The end of May might seem like an innocuous time to most. Yeah, the weather is getting warmer (as long as you're in the right hemisphere), and we're drifting closer to the longest day of the year (I live a stone's throw from Stonehenge, they love solstice there), but for a certain group of individuals, we're ramping up to the most exciting time of the year.

More Accolades and More Thank You's · 6:26pm May 9th

Hey guys!

Once again, the support on 'I Know You're There' has been beyond anything I could have imagined. Not only is it still jostling for places in the highest spots on the Featured Box, having been at the very top for more than three days, but it's also contending for being one of the highest rated stories I've written full-stop.

To which end, I'd like to share some of the cool statistics I've taken note of!

Thank You All! + Life Update · 1:34pm May 6th

*blows cobwebs away*

Check, check, is this thing on?

Phew, so yeah, 2024 is still... a thing that's happening.

Just thought I'd check in here with a little update of just what's up with me and what's going on in my life.

Taking A Break · 7:29pm February 15th

Hey Folks,

Title really summarises it, I'm going on a bit of a breather from writing for a while, really struggling to have enough spoons lately.

The short story is: I was involved in a collision while driving my car.

A Visual Reference · 9:42am January 28th

A thought hath occurred to me!

Quite plainly, sometimes visual descriptors are all well and good. I mean, the big front-and-centre descriptor is there in the title. 'Little Donkey', of course the protagonist is going to be on the small side.

In fact, littering references to just how short she is throughout the story has been rather a delightful effort on my part. But sometimes it's good to have a visual reference out there just to put across how short she is.
