An Audience

Something that’s been frustrating the hell out of me lately is why I’m not writing as much. There’s always an initial fear when you throw yourself 100% into something and I’m no stranger to putting myself out or to pivot in life. Hell, I left my job, sold all of my stuff and moved to […]

Blank

I’ve read books about world-building, I’ve done a heap of work trying to flesh out my worlds as early on as possible but I’ve always had trouble finding a place to start. Mostly the advice I’ve been given is simply “draw a dot on a piece of paper, then draw another one. Now connect the […]

Why Not?

For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to write. I love it more than any other hobby and it’s the most raw, direct connection to my soul and mind. There’s nothing I hate about it, there’s no downside and there’s definitely no side-effects. With video games, I don’t like that it can be […]

Key

Key¬†snapped awake to the sound of someone pounding on his door. He could only guess that it was just after dawn due to the muted light leaking through the tiny crack in the wall, he had blocked the windows up a lifetime ago. The drone of wind hit him next, a sandstorm must have made […]

Prompt #1

To get me back into writing, I’m going to run with a few writing prompts for the time being. Like anything, you just need to stretch before going for a run. You are formerly the God of Dinosaurs, however, due to the God of Meteors, you’re now out of a job. You’re at the Celestial […]

Not a Little

So as mentioned on Facebook and Twitter today, I’ve had a problem. I haven’t written a word in a month. On the first of February I laboured to end the day on a high, inching my way through my third novel. I was in the final few scenes, a pivotal scene. But like a lot […]

Side Effects

I won’t lie, I did this for me. My mind and body were in bad shape, I started to fix one and then started to fix the other not long after. Now, while I’m still on a road to being whole, mind and body, I’m starting to see gains. I want to focus on these […]

A Year in the Life…

On this day, the 21st of February, 2013 I began. I was 142kg. It started with small changes, some clean eating, more walking, the first (of 3) attempts to finish C25K and trying to round out my lifestyle. It was slow going to begin with, diet was probably the biggest thing to get right in […]

Fear of Change

When it’s dark and you’re alone with your thoughts, maybe the soft sounds of your partner sleeping next to you, maybe with the rain hammering the roof, we tend to reflect. We think deeper into things than we normally would, as if we are in a trance, led by shamans through the jungles of our […]

Focus

I’ve been spending a lot of time lately looking towards the future. Whether it’s my exercise regime, my personal life or any of the million things I have planned at the moment I’m not looking back. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not, as someone who used to glance forward occasionally while […]
