The Opportunity

Neil looked at the squat white tubs of nutrition powder, stacked in the corner of the garage like decapitated Lego heads. He sucked down the last of his power shake and paced to help him think. Christine called his name from the kitchen. 'Be right there.' he said. Tommy hadn't returned his calls. David crossed … Continue reading The Opportunity

Lawful Evil is going well, as I've self-diagnosed that writing takes my mind off my discomfort more ably than any medicine. There are always the two pages done in the morning, which is my main writing time, but I find myself returning to it later on in the day.

It also allowed me to expand on some observations about the protagonist's mother, who is the antagonist of the 'internal' plot so … Continue reading Two Pages (09/09/16)

So today felt lighter and I got some of my swagger back as I've moved past the slump and onto something new. It's a balance because I want to build tension, show that the protagonist is taking action (sounds obvious but how many books/films have pointless farting around to pad out screentime or page count?) … Continue reading Nothing Keeps Me Anywhere 31/03/2015
