So, in that little poll I did, people did say they were interested in reading me talking about my process for writing, so here’s a quick one on that topic, just an update. I am also aware that most people wanted posts about general writercraft but it’s been a long week and this is what I have right now. I’ll try and get back on topic next week. Continue reading
Is that title the writing-blog equivalent of clickbait? Am I baiting clicks? Well, never mind. The title’s there now and I guess it’s staying. Continue reading
I was at Conflux this weekend just gone, so I sort of wish I had something more insightful to say – more on the side of the posts it seems I used to be able to just churn out discussing technique or grammar nuances or paragraph structure (though to be perfectly honest, I sometimes fear going back and reading those because I know many of my opinions have changed dramatically.)

I was at Continuum Convention all weekend, so I’ve been talking to people about all sorts of things literary and interpretation-related.

This is a musing stemming from the edit pass I’m doing. I’ve been working on a lot of the daily life sort of stuff, which means looking at what sorts of food characters should eat, or what sort of materials their clothes are made out of. Continue reading
Recently a friend asked me to play a game called Little Nightmares.
This request has been one of the best arguments I have for peer pressure occasionally being a good thing, because it quickly rocketed to ‘best video game I’ve played all year’ and definitely holds a place in my top five games of all time. I’ll add some qualifiers to that, because just because I love something doesn’t mean I think it’s flawless, but it definitely qualifies for one of my top five slots. Continue reading
