Pencil(s) Time

It is of a similar structure and a length as the previous two novels. This is also possibly the most "complicated" of the three. Indeed at times you may well also think I have REALLY lost my mind with this one. LOL!

“Emily” (Part Deux)

“Emily” (Part Deux)

In our pandemic and depressed world, a little 30 minutes of trouble-forgetting escapism and "unreality" is hardly a bad thing.

In Passing

In Passing

While proofing my latest novel manuscript further yesterday - I listen often to a manuscript "read" to me through my PC; you would be surprised how many tiny errors (like a "the" or an "an" accidentally left out of a sentence) it reveals - and considering the story itself, at one point I also thought relatedly on how all of us have a lifespan after which we are no more...

Blame Fitzgerald

I had found myself with no real ideas of what I might write next. Until yesterday, that is....

Boxing Day 2021 (U.S. Style)

Boxing Day 2021 (U.S. Style)

I am now sitting here finishing my coffee. My wife is having a "lie in." My father and my sister are well. We may not have wanted to stay a few extra days, but my dad is now 80 and when one reaches that age you never know what might happen....

My Choice

What prompted this post is it dawned on me this morning that I have done something that I had not really intended to do when I started this "project" early in 2016...

Clearly those who allow social media not to supplement life and expand their personal horizon, but instead to encroach on living face an issue that they may need to address.

For All The World To Read

For All The World To Read

As you probably know I no longer tweet. However, I do like to "dip into" what I see Twitter writers/authors at its #writingcommunity hashtag are throwing out there for possibly all the world to read. I did so again yesterday and thought I would share a few here...

To Do, Or Not To Do

To Do, Or Not To Do

A change of pace: an afternoon (UK time) post. Why? Because I have seen a few things in recent days I thought worth addressing here and I also chose just to surprise you at a new time. LOL!

The Machine Reads

I have used the Kindle text reader on all of my books post-publication. My personal opinion: I have always felt my novels sound better when read aloud by a woman's voice.
