One man and his Irish Wolfhound
What a beast of a dog, he is huge and apparently not very friendly either. His owner said best not to touch him as he is prone to snap. I would rather keep my fingers, thank you very much!

What's writers block?
 
How to not to get writers block

I take something, often an object I have, which I like. Then I invent stories around them. I'm doing that today.

Once upon a time, in my lifetime far, far away, I bought an old Singer sowing machine because I loved the cast-iron stand. That cast iron stand is in the garden, twenty years later and still waiting for the day when it will be made into a table.

The Singer sowing machine, anno world war 1, has long since been trashed. Stupid thing to do. It was a beautiful object and I bitterly regret I did so. The wisdom of years.

What I am left with is this box, used to contain all the threads and needles in a little drawer at the base of the machine.
The box I am using in my books... all because of an old Singer in a dingy basement someone wanted to get rid of.

The story this little box has generated is wonderful. Because it reinvents something lost to us.

Icilma was the name of the water coming from the spring he hit upon in Algeria, when Englishman Stephen Armitage drilled for petroleum in Algeria in 1898 using a rig imported from Canada.

The place was named the Hammam Selama, close to the shore of the Mediteranean, to the small ex-Roman town of Portus Paulus, then named Portes-aux-Poules. The rest is part of my fictive world.

The water he named Icilma went on to be developed into a whole cosmetics industry across the world, soaps, creams, powder shampoo even, until it faded from existence in the late 1950's. 

This is how I work... exhaustive. But wonderful.

And yes, this is used in The Element water...

I just took a photo of a huge Irish wolfhound owned by a German man who is staying at the campsite here . I did this with my Sony NEX6 so I will have to wait until I get home so that I can post it.

Just spent the last three hours working on the book. I deleted some sections of text and just did basic editing for grammar and spelling on some other part of it. Looking forward to when I can get to the process where I uploaded to kindle.

When I have finished this first editing of the text I will be adding photos and links to videos that referenced to in the text.  At various stages of this editing I am outputting from an Scrivener to the Kindle format and also for Epub so that I can at least see what it looks like on the mobile devices I have. I will also be doing a version in iBooks Author that will be specifically for the enhanced EPUB that's can be seen are the iPad and also on the Mac.  I will also have two put this out as a PDF.

Today I'm reading the first book of the Wool trilogy by +Hugh Howey. I am really enjoying the story and it is incredibly well written. I have already started to care what happens to the protagonists in the story and starting to wonder what is going to happen next . It was my son Jack that recommended this book to me , he is an enthusiastic reader of books . I knew that if he said it was going to be good, then it would be.

The story is set in a post apocalyptic future where it is not possible to live out in the open. The people living in a bunker that is called the silo that goes 144 levels down into the earth . This silo has to provide all of the needs for the people that are left. There is murder and political intrigue in the first few chapters and the story is set up now for a bit of a mystery.
