Happy New Year 2019

Monday, January 7th, 2019

It’s that time of year again when I start to think about my writing schedules and what I want from publication etc… for a start this year instead of waiting for midnight and just starting to sort it all out as the festivities began to die down… I watched a film and went to bed […]


Thursday, April 6th, 2017

(First published on my personal blog Snell-Pym) Today I feel like a failure, today I feel fat and not ugly so much as plain with frizzy hair and glasses. Today I looked at the things I make and think… they are all a bit naff. Today I am the failed scientist and the untrained artist, […]

Here is a picture to help inspire a story – what does it suggest to you?

Happy New Year 2016

Saturday, January 2nd, 2016

It’s a new year, so it’s time to think and plan and prepare. This year I plan to submit more things (ie actually getting around to submitting them and not just starting to write a million new things!). I also plan to get The Doomsday Collection properly out there, I’ve got a couple more zines […]

GothNoWriMo 2015

Friday, September 25th, 2015

I spent September working out what I was going to do for GothNoWriMo, a novel writing challenge with a gothic twist. I normally use Octobers writing challenge to warm me up for November. I thought long and hard about this though – should I set myself a goal this year? With the way my head […]

Getting Back on My Feet

Friday, September 4th, 2015

To get me back into the flow for writing ready for GothNoWriMo and NaNo (two writing novels in a month challenges) I’ve been thinking and plotting plans. So my main focus for writing is my Punk Universe, this is Punku, Jess, Janus, Actimen Cull, Aquatic Apes, ancient Egypt, angles in space – all that lot. […]

Concussion and Writing

Friday, August 28th, 2015

For those of you who know me in real life, and possibly those who don’t – I have had concussion. I thought it lasted only a few days but sadly I’ve had it for months now with a few lingering things such as recognising faces, still acting up. I still have the story telling facility […]

Stubby Marathon

Friday, July 24th, 2015

I found I can do a bit of long hand writing so as part of Camp NaNo me and my 9 yr old have decided that we are going to have a Stubby Marathon. Yes I did just make that up! The plan is that we start out with a ream of paper and a […]

The Zombies

Thursday, July 16th, 2015

The story I am working on is from a dream and is based on a zombie apocalypse concept, except it is obviously part of the Punk’s Universe so we know the world survives! I have no idea how many words I have written and I am pretty sure that I am going to offend people […]

The Pain is in the Editing

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

I’ve been dictating into my phone, little bits at a time and it is great and is stopping the frustration but… I can’t seem to add punctuation and it doesn’t like my accent nor slurred speech and doesn’t really know that many words. But I can get the bones of the story down, it is […]
